Former President Donald Trump has once again taken aim at Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis this week in the wake of the governor speaking out on a number of reports that indicate progressive Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is getting ready to charge the former president. As part of his statements, DeSantis called out the George Soros-funded D.A. for just "weaponizing" the justice system, while also making a quick jab about the "hush money" which has been allegedly paid to pron actress Stormy Daniels by Trump.
The ongoing arguments take place as political tensions skyrocket all over the country in the wake of Trump claiming this past weekend that he was going to be "arrested on Tuesday" due to an alleged $130,000 payment issued to Daniels as part of the 2016 presidential election. One spokesperson for the former president went on to state that Trump had been issued "no notification" about any specifics when it comes to the D.A.'s plans.
"Ron DeSanctimonious will probably find out about FALSE ACCUSATIONS & FAKE STORIES sometime in the future, as he gets older, wiser, and better known, when he’s unfairly and illegally attacked by a woman, even classmates that are ‘underage’ (or possibly a man!)," exclaimed Trump via a post to social media. "I’m sure he will want to fight these misfits just like I do!"
Trump went on to include a screen capture coming from a leftist group that authored a hit piece against DeSantis which Trump previously utilized to try and solidify baseless claims of DeSantis grooming underage girls with alcohol. DeSantis fired back by claiming that he deals with "defamatory stuff every single day" and that he elects to instead spend his time "delivering results for the people of Florida and fighting against Joe Biden," not "trying to smear other Republicans."

The comments from Trump came in the wake of a Monday press conference carried out by DeSantis where the governor partly defended the former president when a reporter asked him about the situation.
"I do know this, the Manhattan district attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor. And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety," stated the Governor. "He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors, he says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes. And what we’ve seen in Manhattan is we’ve seen the crime rate go up, and we’ve seen citizens become less safe."
DeSantis Expressed that Bragg was just "weaponizing" the justice system by attempting to go after a case from many years ago while "ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction."
"And I think that that’s fundamentally wrong," he concluded. "I also think it’s important to point out when you’re talking about these Soros-funded prosecutors, yes, they may do a high profile politicized prosecution. And that’s bad."
