New Report Alleges Tension Between DeSantis, Trump Over Illegal Immigration Response

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to trend and make headlines.

Lately, the GOP governor is in the news for having illegal immigrants who entered the United States be sent to the left-wing stronghold of Martha’s Vineyard.

Democrats went bonkers over this, with California Governor Gavin Newsom pressing the Department of Justice to investigate DeSantis, before then challenging DeSantis to debate him.

However, amid the recent transfer of illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, reports from Washington Examiner allege that former President Trump isn’t happy. Allegedly, Trump’s been claiming the Florida governor “stole” this plan from him.

What to Know About the Latest Reports

According to unnamed sources, Trump doesn’t like DeSantis getting credit for having migrants dispatched to the Massachusetts island. The former president is claimed to have said DeSantis only made this move to bolster himself ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

Interestingly enough, as the entire nation weighs in on migrants arriving in Martha’s Vineyard, Trump has been publicly silent about the matter. Thus far, no one in Trump’s camp has publicly attached their name to these latest allegations about the former president.

DeSantis has been clear that migrants arriving in Martha’s Vineyard is only the beginning. Other Republican governors have likewise been clear that they won’t idly stand by as illegal immigration runs amuck in their communities.

Democrats are longtime advocates of both sanctuary cities and illegal immigration. Now poses a great opportunity for the left to live up to its rhetoric. Thus far, Democrats are severely falling short.

Major Momentum Behind DeSantis

Amid the dispatches to Martha’s Vineyard, DeSantis is also running for reelection in Florida. Thus far, DeSantis looks to be a shoo-in against Democrat Charlie Crist.

Not only does DeSantis have many times more cash on hand than Crist, but he’s also consistently leading the Florida Democrat in polls. On top of this, there are over 200,000 more Republicans in Florida than Democrats.

Within the past several months, growing conversations have swirled around the possibility of DeSantis running for the White House in 2024. Various PACs and others aren’t hesitating to explain why they view a DeSantis presidential run as a good idea.

On the matter of illegal immigration, the Florida governor has been vocal that his state is not a sanctuary community. Like other conservatives across the nation, DeSantis is urging Biden to do his job, uphold the country’s immigration rules, and actually secure the border.

Do you believe reports that Trump is angry about DeSantis getting accolades for sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard? Do you think the Florida governor’s profile will continue to grow between now and the 2024 presidential election?
