Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been a loyal and trusted friend to President Trump from the very beginning. What a difference from much of the Republican Party establishment, who have abandoned President Trump in his fight for voter integrity. These RINO’s will suffer tremendous losses in future elections, for betraying our great president and his supporters. Every anti-Trump RINO needs to be primaried in 2022. As for Governor DeSantis, he will one day run for president. And when he does he will get the full endorsement of President Trump. As he should.
GET TOUGH REPUBLICANS!

DeSantis tells Trump to ‘fight on,’ takes aim at science and has beef with John Roberts
By Politico, December 3, 2020
TALLAHASSEE — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday told a private gathering of political donors and corporate executives that he has urged President Donald Trump to “fight on” to overturn November’s election results.
In wide-ranging remarks made in person behind closed doors at a meeting of the Associated Industries of Florida, DeSantis dismissed the risks of the coronavirus, contradicted science and targeted U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. He also defended Trump’s attempt to fight the results of the election.
“I told the president to fight on,” DeSantis told the group gathered at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes resort hotel in Orlando, according to a recording of the speech obtained by POLITICO. “In reality, none of this stuff has succeeded yet. Time is running out.”
DeSantis, a Republican, has been one of Trump’s staunchest allies. Days after the election, in an appearance on Fox News, he suggested that the Republican-controlled Legislatures in Pennsylvania and Michigan should overturn results in those states. He has said little about the election since.
On Thursday, however, the governor predicted that the “crazy stuff” sought by Democrats would be “dead on arrival” in Congress given the party’s slim majority in the House and the prospect of Republicans retaining control of the Senate after a Georgia run-off vote in January.
Given the likelihood of a congressional impasse, DeSantis predicted that President-elect Joe Biden will use executive orders to carry out his agenda items, including on climate change, an issue that DeSantis said was not a major issue for voters. Republican attorneys general will fight those orders in the courts, he said.
The Republican strategy will be similar to what Democrats did to Trump, whose executive orders were challenged in an effort to “delay, delay, delay” his agenda for months and years, DeSantis said. But Biden will be forced to argue his case to federal judges that Trump put on the bench.
“I think you are going to see a lot of battles in the courts over the scope of executive power,” said DeSantis.
