    Will Trump apologize for this?

    The 45th president of the United States is promoting a claim that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis “groomed” high school-aged girls.

    American Liberty News previously reported:

    Trump promoted a post that showed a grainy photograph of someone that is alleged to be DeSantis standing next to several women at a party who appear to be roughly the same age.

    “Here is Ron DeSanctimonious grooming high school girls with alcohol as a teacher,” the post claimed.

    Trump promoted the post on his social media channel, writing: “That’s not Ron, is it? He would never do such a thing!”

    The New York Times previously reported that the photo was published by a blog run by a Democrat super PAC and that two former female students said parties that DeSantis attended “took place after” they had graduated.

    The Florida Governor has been the recent target of a number of verbal attacks from Trump, however, the Governor refuses to sink to his level.

    On Wednesday, a reporter asked if DeSantis’s proposal to make it easier for government officials to sue the media for defamation would address Trump’s “damaging” posts about him. After defending his panel proposals, DeSantis got more direct about Trump’s attack:

    “I spend my time delivering results for the people of Florida and fighting against Joe Biden,” DeSantis said to applause. “That’s how I spend my time. I don’t spend my time trying to smear other Republicans.”

    1. The quickest way to have another term with the Executive branch in democrat hands is to keep publishing and promoting this junk.

    2. I am a complete and loyal fan of President Donald Trump but it breaks my heart to see him make these attacks on other Republicans. He is becoming his own worst enemy and it needs to stop. I hope that he reads this as I am trying to help him return to the office that he won in 2020.

    3. I am a complete fan of Donald Trump also, however how do we know at all that this attack is nothing but a setup by Democrats to make it look like it came from Donald Trump. Those are the defying tricks that the Democrats would pull just like they rigged the last election and went on severaln witch hunts that all failed.

    4. i DON’T QUITE BELIEVE ITS YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP BUT IF IT IS YOU SAYING THESE THINGS, PLEASE STOP. DE SANTIS IS A GOOD MAN AND HAS DONE SO MUCH GOOD TO HIS STATE. I AM VOTING FOR YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP, SO PLEASE DON’T GIVE THE CRAZY DEMS ANYTHING TO TALK ABOUT. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE, AND THE SENTILE OLD MAN OUT. WHAT A LIAR HE IS.

    5. I supported Trump but his behavior lately has become so hateful that i can no longer do so. This accusation is a dirty statement that he knows is not true, yet he used it to slam De Santos. I want a candidate that is strong and can beat Biden. With these ridiculous outbursts, Trump is not helping himself or the GOP.
      He needs to stop or get out of the way.

    6. If Trump really said these things, I would be very disappointed! I believe that Trump should be promoting DeSantis to be his Vice Pres. That way, DeSantis could get National experience and be well-prepared for a run for President in 2028.

    7. i really hope that mr. Trump isnt stooping as low as s lot of the democrats have. things were going so good for the country, and look at the mess we have now. im still 100% for Trump, but my trust in him is starting to get thin.

    8. I’m so disappointed in Donald Trump trashing or attempting to trash DeSantis, someone we so desperately need right now who sets an example for other governors. President Trump does not need this kind of negative attention right now. Everytime I hear him get nasty about DeSantis like this, I cringe and wonder if he’ll even make it through the primaries. He’s letting his supporters down big time. I hope somebody can get through to him. As for VP, personally, I’d like to see DeSantis stay in FL as their governor, where he’s needed more. For VP, I choose Allen West, a great patriot with all the qualifications for VP.

    9. I agree with the first four posts. I want Donald back where he can again make America great again. And Governor DeSantis would be a super v.p. And is sure bet on him to be a great president in 28 and 32.

    10. I agree with all of the above. I love DT & would be very disappointed if he had really said those thing about my amazing Governor. DJ

    11. Dear President Trump –
      I have been a loyal TRUMP supporter from the very beginning. I voted for you twice. Sad to say, you are toxic to far too many -deservedly or not – and frankly I don’t believe you have the support you once did. If this account of your attack on Ron DeSantis is true, (and I hope it’s Fake News), I promise you there are many Republican voters who really hope you step aside. There are others in the wing who will carry your flag forward in full support of your wonderful programs. But I think Gov Sarah Huckabee Sanders was right in her speech following Biden’s incoherent diatribe; to the effect that it is indeed time for younger stalwarts to get in the fray. The old saying “Quit when you’re ahead” is appropriate. There’s no guarantee you would prevail in the coming contest. Step aside now. If you persist in attacking the likes of a star like DeSantis – or any other patriotic candidate – you will demean yourself and further divide the party.

    12. Another Trump backer here, but if this is true, would have second thoughts about backing him again. Repubs must stick together and not argue amongst themselves. Ron is a good guy and would make a very good candidate. The Dems are the real enemy here, let’s all remember that.

    13. I totally agree & am so disappointed with the insults he hurls. Will not vote for him unless he stops and find his “adult” self.

    14. Trump is rapidly becoming his own worse enemy. As well as Gov. DeSantis is liked in Fl the former President will be losing millions of votes because of his attitude and his big mouth. Unfortunately I doubt he’ll ever learn to shut up.
