Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is casting himself as the pragmatic leader whose leadership style could propel him to the Oval Office.
During a snippet of DeSantis’s interview with Piers Morgan, another frequent recipient of Trump’s criticism, the Florida Governor dismissed the former President’s jabs at him as nothing more than “background noise” that he wouldn’t engage.
The interview will air on Fox Nation on Thursday (March 22), with Morgan sharing a preview of the interview with the New York Post.
Discussing his “approach to leadership” during the wide-ranging interview, DeSantis highlighted that he only brought in people who “have the agenda of the people and share our agenda,” adding that those who bring their own agenda wouldn’t be tolerated.
He continued that he believed running the Government meant there shouldn’t be “daily drama,” instead the focus should be on the “big picture” and putting “points on the board.”
DeSantis’s interview with Morgan occurred on Monday (March 20), hours after the Florida Governor broke his silence on the potential indictment Trump could face in the Stormy Daniels hush money saga.
While DeSantis called out the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is leading the hush money case, for being nothing more than a “Soria-funded prosecutor” who is “pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing his office,” he did take aim at Trump, although subtly.
He mentioned that he hadn’t found himself in a predicament where he had to pay off an adult film star; therefore, he couldn’t comment on that part of the saga.
