Trump Boosts DeSantis, Scott Ahead of Florida GOP Primary

  • Congats to Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis on the creepiest ad of the year

The war of words intensified between two titans in Republican politics on Tuesday as President Donald Trump trashed the conservative billionaire Koch brothers as a "total joke in real Republican circles".

"I want to thank our farmers". Trump said he plans to campaign for Republicans across the country five days a week in the run-up to the midterm elections in November.

"I'm very anxious that the hostility whipped up by President Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt", Acosta noted. "Build the wall!" He sprinkled in false claims (people need an ID to buy groceries he said at one point), plugged his hotel in Washington, and even mentioned "Crooked Hillary".

The question for those watching Tuesday in Tampa: Will Donald Trump, called "vile and obscene" by Putnam during the 2016 primaries, give the Agriculture Commissioner a birthday present that he won't want and can't return?

Ron DeSantis, a Florida congressman running for governor endorsed by President Donald Trump, released an ad this morning reminding voters that his Trump endorsement is now eating his entire brain. "'Cause the Democrats, the Democrats are not voting for what we want to do, and they're not voting and allowing our values to take place in our country".

While he's against numerous President's policies, he also believes the two-party system is failing.

DeSantis, whose campaign has featured frequent guest appearances on Fox News, has clung closely to Trump in the campaign.

"Florida is going in the right direction, and we need to continue our success and build upon it", he told the crowd at the rally. "He's teaching Madison to talk", Casey adds, before the camera reveals Ron showing his daughter how to say "make America great again".

"I kind of see it as posturing, to be honest with you", Rep. Scott Taylor told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day". Luther Strange past year.

For many, Trump's claim brought to mind reports of President George H.W. Bush expressing amazement upon seeing a supermarket scanner during his 1992 reelection campaign.

Polls in the last week show DeSantis leading Putnam - as many voters have already received absentee ballots, early voting begins in mid-August, and the primary is just four weeks away.

With sky-high approval ratings among Republican voters, the president has injected himself into several recent GOP primaries, helping candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.
