Gov. Ron DeSantis has vowed not to dive into the same realm of "juvenile insults" into which Donald Trump is now delving.
That doesn't mean that DeSantis is going to hold back from giving his harsh side of the truth.
In fact, DeSantis welcomes Trump's insults, because he feels like they constantly make him look more mature than the former president.
"First of all, I mean, I think a lot of this stuff when he hits me with it with juvenile insults, I think that helps me," DeSantis said. "I don’t think voters like that. I think they look at it and they realize, like, you know what, that’s not effective. And so I don’t think it’s effective."
Just because he isn't going to go out of his way to insult Trump though, doesn't mean DeSantis doesn't want people to know his side of the story. He said:
I actually don’t mind that at all, I think it’s just a reminder, why there’s so many millions of voters who will never vote for him going forward.
While DeSantis isn't responding to being called "Pudding Fingers DeSantis" or "Ron DeSantimonious," he is going to respond on key political issues.
One of the topics to which DeSantis will react centers on Trump's claims about the 2020 election.
DeSantis said that Trump's assertions that he won the 2020 election are "unsubstantiated." He went on:
The election is what it is. All those theories that were put out did not prove to be true. It was not an election that was conducted the way I think that we want to, but that’s different than saying Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro stole votes or something like that.
DeSantis was referring to Trump's claims that voting machines in key states were programed to switch votes to Joe Biden regardless of what the public wanted.
"I think those theories, you know, proved to be unsubstantiated," Ron concluded.
