Former President Donald Trump surprised some Republicans on social media Friday when he declared that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo “did better” during the pandemic than Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
“When the Ron DeSanctimonious facts come out, you will see that he is better than most Democrat Governors, but very average, at best, against Republican Governors. How about the fact that he had the third most deaths of any State, as Governor, on the China Virus. Even Cuomo did better, #4. He shut down everything, EVEN HIS BEACHES. Other Republican Govs didn’t. Look at the Disney MESS, could have worked an easy settlement, but no, he wanted the Fake News to show what a tough guy he is. He’s not!” posted Trump on Truth Social.
DeSantis is expected to announce his candidacy for President of the United States from Florida next week.
This is a developing story.
