Donald Trump has been poking fun at Ron DeSantis for months now. But he might want to extend an olive branch.
Because Ron DeSantis has huge news for Donald Trump that could change his life.
Almost everyone in the conservative circles came out in support of Donald Trump against the sham indictments that the Manhattan DA office brought against the former President.
Everyone can see that this is injustice on display that the Democrats have been behind all along.
Even one of Donald Trump’s likely opponents in the 2024 Republican primary cycle, Ron DeSantis, has said that the indictments are garbage.
But he’s also made something else very clear that could help Donald Trump legally. So Trump may want to change his tune about Ron DeSantis very quickly.
Ron DeSantis took to Twitter to make known the fact that he thinks the way the Democrats are using the justice system to attack their political opponents is simply wrong.
“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head,” DeSantis wrote. “It is un-American,” he added.
DeSantis went on to say that the Manhattan DA is “bending” and “stretching” the law to get what he wants for his political agenda.
“The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent.”
Finally but critically, DeSantis said that Florida would “not assist in an extradition request” for Donald Trump from the Manhattan District Attorney.
“Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” DeSantis said.
The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head.
It is un-American.

This could be a pretty important friendship for Donald Trump should he seek protection from the Democrats who are obviously bypassing the rule of law to get what they want.
Some outlets have reported that Trump will be turning himself in for an arraignment on Tuesday of next week, so it’s unlikely that DeSantis will even have to deny an extradition request.
But this does signal that Ron DeSantis is more interested in seeing justice served here for Donald Trump rather than holding a grudge just because Trump called him some names.
DeSantis may be an ally that Trump could lean on in this process, and Trump would be wise to lean on the massively popular Florida Governor as much as he can.
