DONALD Trump has attacked Republican rival Rob DeSantis after the GOP rival was interviewed by Piers Morgan.
Ahead of the interview airing, Trump took aim at DeSantis and Morgan in a post shared on his social media platform Truth Social on Wednesday (22 March) afternoon.
Trump wrote on TruthSocial: “While I am fighting against Radical Left Lunatics, Persecutors, and unfair Prosecutors who want to destroy us all, Ron DeSanctimonious is not working for the people of Florida as he should be, he is too busy chatting with a Ratings-Challenged TV Host from England, desperately trying to rescue his failing Campaign,” Trump posted.
“But it’s my fault, I put him there!”
“I don’t really know what it means, but I kinda like it,” he told Morgan, calling the jibes “background noise”.
In the interview, which was broadcast in full on Thursday, the Florida governor said that he was unfazed by Trump mocking him and nicknaming him “Ron DeSanctimonious”.
“You can call me whatever you want, just as long as you also call me a winner because that’s what we’ve been able to do in Florida, is put a lot of points on the board and really take this State to the next level.”
Morgan reshared Trump’s post on Twitter, pointing out that he had interviewed the former president many times in the past.
