Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to increase electricity rates was the major point in Trump’s recent line of criticism. Here’s the full story.
A Scathing Critique
On August 31, Trump used his Truth Social platform to launch a scathing critique of DeSantis.
Electricity Rates Controversy
He accused the Florida governor of approving a massive 20% increase in the state’s electricity rates, labeling it as the largest in Florida’s history.
He wrote, “So now it is learned that Governor Ron DeSanctimonious unnecessarily approved a 20% hike in Florida Electricity Rates, the largest in history (by far!), after taking a 9.5 Million Dollar Campaign Contribution from ‘money machine’ Florida Power and Light, and subsidiaries.”
Handling of the Insurance Industry
But Trump didn’t limit his criticism to electricity rates. He also targeted DeSantis’s handling of the insurance industry. Trump wrote, “Next up to check out is the Insurance Industry, where DeSanctus gave up the store.”
DeSantis’ Poll Numbers Have Crashed
“His campaign and poll numbers have ‘CRASHED’ to a point where it doesn’t matter much anymore, but what a shame for Florida!” he continued.
Trump’s bashing comes after DeSantis gave a speech that emphasized “supporting the needs of the people who are in harm’s way.”
Prioritizing the Needs of Floridians
In the midst of Hurricane Idalia, DeSantis emphasized the importance of prioritizing the needs of Floridians affected by the disaster over short-term political calculations.
Lives Are at Risk
DeSantis said, “That has got to triumph over any type of short-term political calculation or any type of positioning. This is the real deal. You have people’s lives that have been at risk.”
Biden Commended DeSantis
Remarkably, DeSantis’ approach earned a commendation from an unexpected quarter: President Joe Biden. President Biden, who, like Trump, rarely passes on an opportunity for political jabs, commended DeSantis’ past hurricane responses in Florida.
He shared personal recollections of his involvement in hurricane recovery efforts alongside the governor and emphasized their shared commitment to putting people before politics.
Nature of Politics
“I know this sounds strange, especially how the nature of politics today,” Biden said.
“But, you know, I was down there when the last major storm (hit). I spent a lot of time with him walking from community to community, making sure he had what he needed to get it done,” the president added.
He Knows How to Lead
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
One user wrote, “Ron does know how to govern and lead that much is obvious, unlike Trump who just seems like HR is fundraising to pay his legal bills.”
DeSantis Is an Excellent Governor
Another user added, “DeSantis handles difficult issues fairly well. He’s been an excellent governor.”
