Former US President Donald Trump was lashed out by his arch-rival in the Republican race for presidential nomination Ron DeSantis who warned his party of defeat, were the ex-commander-in-chief to become Grand Old Party's (GOP) candidate for 2024 elections, implying that the billionaire as incapable of resolving tough challenges.
While speaking in an interview on Real Time with Bill Maher aired Friday, Ron DeSantis said: "I don't think he can win the election. I could win the election… I don’t think he can actually get the job done that we need to do."
The governor also added: "We need accountability for what this government did to this country with the Covid restrictions, mandates, and lockdowns. Donald Trump is not going to do that."
Ron DeSantis asserted confidently that indictment-stricken Trump can be defeated by him in the party’s nomination, claiming that he is capable of getting the job done, pointing towards a number of issues the US is facing.
While taking aim at President Joe Biden he said: "I think we need accountability for what this government did to this country with the Covid restrictions mandates and lockdowns. Donald Trump is not gonna do that… He's not going to clean house at the CDC, NIH, or FDA. I will do that. I will get the job done."
The 45-year-old said: "The one thing about me in Florida, and even my critics will acknowledge- if he says he's going to do something, he will follow through and get the job done."
DeSantis said: "So it's about the country. Are we gonna get the country turned around or not? I don't think he's a vehicle that's doing and I have been- when I supported them on things I liked. I've said it, but I've been critical about the things that he didn't do, and I'm gonna continue to do that."
Florida Governor participated in the second GOP debate which started in Regan’s Library without the former president who is facing four indictments in a number of cases.
Trump was also heavily criticised Wednesday during the debate by all the GOP participants. DeSantis also excoriated the billionaire for not showing up and facing the music.
While excoriating, the Republican presidential candidate said: "He's not showing up he's missing in action he owes it to voters to show up and defend his record. I think he thinks he can take a juice poll and then people don't get to vote that's not the way the system works. You got to go earn votes so I'm showing up I'm showing that."
