Trump Roasts DeSantis’s Immigration Announcement: ‘He Would Do All of the Things Done by Me’:
Former President Donald Trump was unimpressed by Gov. Ron DeSantis’s immigration policy, which he rolled out on Monday, noting that the Florida governor would simply “do all of the things done by me.
DeSantis formally announced his plan to address the U.S. border crisis on Monday after visiting the southern border over the weekend. During an event in Eagle Pass, Texas, on Monday morning, DeSantis previewed a few of the actions he would take, including cracking down on sanctuary cities and finishing the wall.
A summary from DeSantis’s office specified even more actions the governor would take, including ending catch-and-release and reinstating Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy.
Trump pointed out the similarities.
“DeSanctimonious showed up today in Eagle Pass, on the Texas Border, with almost no crowd or excitement,” Trump remarked on Truth Social, calling DeSantis a “failed candidate, whose sole purpose in making the trip was to reiterate the fact that he would do all of the things done by me in creating the strongest Border, by far, in U.S. history.”
“A total waste of time!” he exclaimed. --->READ MORE HERE
Trump campaign accuses DeSantis of 'copying and pasting' ex-president's border policy:
Former President Donald Trump's 2024 presidential campaign escalated its rivalry with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) on Monday, accusing the Florida governor of copying his immigration agenda.
DeSantis, fresh off of addressing conservative activists over the weekend, unveiled his "No Excuses" immigration plan, meant to deter immigrants from entering the United States illegally, in Eagle Pass, Texas, on Monday.
The announcement marked his first formal campaign policy as a 2024 presidential candidate. DeSantis's plan centers on four planks: stem the flow of illegal migration, build a border wall, address the cartels smuggling migrants, and work with states to step up immigration enforcement.
The rollout led Trump, the current GOP presidential front-runner and DeSantis's chief antagonist, to lambaste the governor.
His campaign sent out an email to reporters highlighting the Florida governor's past immigration stances on Monday and framed DeSantis's policies as imitating Trump's own.
"FLASHBACK: Ron DeSantis praised President Trump for his immigration and border policies that helped keep our country safe," the campaign tweeted. "Now DeSantis is copying and pasting President Trump’s Agenda47 policy plan because he doesn’t have an original idea of his own."
In a video linked to the tweet, DeSantis slammed President Joe Biden's handling of the border while praising Trump's policies in multiple sound bites.
"Donald Trump had obviously the wall, which we all supported, but also safe third party agreements, as well as 'Remain in Mexico.' And guess what happened? The border was under control," DeSantis said. "And I'll tell you, the Trump border policies worked very well. Biden is undoing that right now." --->READ MORE HERE
