The substantive policy differences between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are few and minor. Partisans on both sides will amplify and exaggerate every perceived difference over the next year to portray their guy as a saint and the other as the devil, but this is mostly an illusion.
Despite the cherry-picked stuff you’ll see on social media, both Trump and DeSantis:
Generally supported Operation Warp Speed and the initial Covid lockdowns
Generally support the 2nd Amendment, despite both endorsing some level of red flag laws
Oppose the deep state bureaucracy
Are hesitant to involve American troops in foreign wars
Plan to crack down on illegal immigration
Aim to crack down on Big Tech censorship
I saw a very long tweet today that summed up what I’ve been trying to say:
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump want to raise your taxes.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump want to watch transgenders have forcible sex with your children.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump would allow Zelenskyy to continue to ransack our wallets.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump want criminals running the streets of every major city in America.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump would ever pack the Supreme Court with liberals.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump would ever allow Critical Race Theory or DEI to spread through our government like a cancer.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump would allow someone like Rachel Levine to be in our government in any way, shape or form.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump want unlimited and unrestricted abortion to be the law of the land.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump would have ever withdrawn from Afghanistan in such a disastrous way like Biden did.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump would allow unchecked illegal immigration to continue in the manner that it is, which is destroying the very fabric of American society.
Both Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump would be better than Biden.
Younger than Biden.
Healthier than Biden.
Less SENILE than Biden.
MORE HONEST than Biden.
So let’s have our primary debates and support whoever we are supporting but do so without ripping apart our movement to the point that we cannot get back together.
In the past two days we’ve witnessed absolute warfare within our own party and that’s just way too much.
Our true enemy is Joe Biden and the people who support him.
Our true enemy are the Democrats in Congress who would pass laws that would make thinking like us punishable by death if they could do it.
Our true enemy are the people who openly call conservatives the enemies of America.
Let’s focus on the true enemies of America.
They are called the Democrats.
Neither Ron DeSantis nor Donald Trump are the enemies. Keep focused! Keep united!
