Florida Ron DeSantis accused the Trump administration agencies of colluding with Big Tech companies to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 election.
In a recent interview on Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo,” DeSantis claimed the Trump administration’s agencies were complicit in suppressing a story related to information found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
“I look back at the Hunter Biden censorship, which was a huge, huge deal to happen in the 2020 election, and yet those were Donald Trump’s own agencies that were colluding with Big Tech,” DeSantis said.
“I would never allow that to happen. I would fire those people immediately,” he added.
One user responded to DeSantis’ statement, writing, “Trump’s case has always been that career bureaucrats, the intelligence community apparatus, and mainstream media colluded to sabotage his presidency and re-election. I don’t think this attack lands the way DeSantis thought it would and seems desperate.”
It seems that DeSantis is trying to frame Trump as incompetent and unaware of what was happening in his administration.
However, according to trial lawyer Robert Barnes, the court order specifically determined that the Trump administration was kept in the dark about the Big Tech censorship by the FBI and others.
“The actual court order explicitly found that the Trump administration was deliberately kept in the dark & unaware of the Big Tech censorship by the FBI, etc,” Barnes wrote.
Meanwhile, DeSantis continues to trail Trump in primary polls for the 2024 presidential race.
Maria highlighted Governor DeSantis’s polls.
“I’m wondering what’s going on with your campaign. There was a lot of optimism about you running for president earlier in the year, but here’s this weekend’s headline from the Politico playbook, “FAILURE TO LAUNCH — Florida Gov. RON DeSANTIS’ campaign to topple DONALD TRUMP has stalled.” We are way behind, says a top DeSantis PAC official, sounding the alarm. What happened?” asked Maria Bartiromo.
“Maria, these are narratives. The media does not want me to be the nominee,” DeSantis responded.
“I think that’s very, very clear. Why? Because they know I’ll beat Biden. But even more importantly, they know I will actually deliver on all these things,” DeSantis said.
