Who said it: Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump?March 18, 2023
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis is often called “Trump 2.0” for his embrace of conservative policies and his take-no-prisoners style of politics.
And ahead of the 2024 presidential election — as both Florida men vie to lead the party and ultimately the nation — they have openly feuded over Covid-19 and vaccines and whether DeSantis is truly loyal to the former president, whose 2018 endorsement helped the Florida governor win election.
But the men are also very similar in their approach to issues like critical race theory, China and especially their criticism of Democrats and President Joe Biden.
How similar? POLITICO collected some of Trump’s and DeSantis’ quotes. See if you can tell who said it.
