Ron DeSantis and other GOPers say little about Donald Trump indictment

Ron DeSantis and other GOPers say little about Donald Trump indictment

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Ron DeSantis argued his campaign case to the North Carolina Republican Party on Friday while making only passing reference to the biggest political elephant in the room: Donald Trump’s second indictment.

While not citing Trump by name, DeSantis again decried the “weaponization” of law enforcement and claimed that different standards are being applied to Republicans and Democrats, including “a former Republican president.”

“I think there needs to be one standard of justice in this country,” DeSantis said. “Let’s enforce that on everybody and make sure we all know the rules.”

DeSantis also may have made an indirect jab at Trump. The former Navy lawyer said he would have been court-martialed “in a New York minute” if he had taken classified information home, a comment he directed at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but which could also be applied to Trump.
