DeSantis Makes His Case On Why He, Not Trump, Should Be The GOP Nominee

 Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made his case at the start of the third Republican debate in Miami on Wednesday for why he should be the next President of the United States rather than former President Donald Trump.

DeSantis made the remarks while standing at center stage as the highest polling candidate at the debate and the second highest overall in the primary behind Trump.

“This country is in trouble, and the elites that have put us here, they don’t care about you,” DeSantis said. “They don’t care that you’re having to grapple with higher grocery prices or have higher gas prices. They don’t care that your family is less secure, because of the open border that’s allowed drugs and even terrorists to come into this country.”

He said that he would not sit by and let the U.S. continue its downward spiral and that he will take the slings and arrows for the American people as he fights to get the country back on track because “it’s not about me.”

“It’s about you. I will fight for you,” he said. “I will make sure to lead this country’s revival, and I will win for you and your family. Actions speak louder than words. We don’t have time for excuses, and it’s not something that we’re going to be able to have all these distractions. As a veteran, I will get the job done.”

DeSantis argued that the current race was a lot different than the race in 2016 and that the former president was not the same candidate that he was in the past.

“He owes it to you to be on this stage and explain why he should get another chance,” DeSantis said. “He should explain why he didn’t have Mexico pay for the border wall. He should explain why he racked up so much debt. He should explain why he didn’t drain the swamp.”

“And he said Republicans were gonna get tired of winning. Well, we saw last night — I’m sick of Republicans losing,” he concluded. “In Florida, I showed how it’s done. One year ago here, we won a historic victory, including a massive landslide right here in Miami Dade County. That’s how we have to do it. So, I promise you this: as the nominee next November, I’ll get the job done, and as president, I will deliver for you.”
