Trump Blasts DeSantis in Iowa: ‘Ron Reminds Me a Lot of Mitt Romney’

President Donald Trump dropped the hammer on Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis during a big speech in Iowa yesterday.

Trump compared DeSantis to his nemesis Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and said he was a disciple of former House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Trump said: “And he also fought against Social Security.

“He wanted to decimate it and voted against it three times.

“Voted against Social Security. That’s a bad one.

“That’s a big increase, and he also voted to severely cut Medicare.

“I will not be cutting Medicare and I will not be cutting Social Security.

“We’re leaving the age where it is.

“But you have to remember, Ron was a disciple of Paul Ryan, who is a RINO loser who currently is destroying Fox and would constantly vote against entitlements.

“He would just again–remember that?

“The wheelchair over the cliff.

“The Democrats used it.

“The wheelchair over the cliff commercial. Very effective.

“That was about him, but Ryan, Paul Ryan’s a big reason that Mitt Romney – I’m not a big fan of Mitt Romney – lost his election.

“And to be honest with you, Ron reminds me a lot of Mitt Romney.

“So, I don’t think you’re gonna be doing so well here.

“But we’re gonna find out.

“But those are the facts” he said.
