Trump Campaign Attacks DeSantis For Ripping Byron Donalds

Gov. Ron DeSantis' team recently criticized Representative Byron Donalds, a fellow Republican lawmaker in Florida.

Donald Trump's campaign did NOT appreciate it.

Donalds recently made some comments revealing that he had some minor concerns with the idea that Florida's education system would teach kids about the "personal benefit" enslaved Americans received while held in servitude.

It wasn't a statement with which all Republicans would have agreed, especially since one of the Black scholars who helped curate the curriculum recently came out and disproved Kamala Harris' assertion that Florida's new education standards were racist in nature.

Donalds wasn't too critical, simply saying that the section about slavery in Florida "needs some adjustments." As a whole, Donalds said that Florida's new education standards do "a very good job in covering all aspects of Black history in the United States."

"The talking point narrative around it, yeah, it sounds awful" Donalds said. "Like nobody should be accepting of that, but when you read through the standards, they actually did a very good job in covering all aspects of Black history in the United States."

Donalds suggested that "the best way to accomplish it, at this point, is working with the State Board of Education to bring refinement to that topic."

Byron clarified that he in no way thought that the Florida students would leave classrooms thinking that slavery was beneficial. He said:

If you read what is in there now it’s crystal clear to me that slavery was one of the darkest stains on our country, no doubt.

DeSantis' press secretary, Jeremy Redfern, didn't like Donalds' comments.

Trump's campaign used Redfern's comments as an opportunity to pile on DeSantis' stumbling efforts.

Campaign advisor Jason Miller went on Twitter to offer an official take.
