DeSantis knocks Trump over BLM leader’s endorsement: ‘Makes perfect sense’

Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis knocked former President Trump after he earned an endorsement from Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist Mark Fisher.

“BLM praising Donald Trump — and Trump celebrating it — makes perfect sense,” DeSantis posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

The Florida governor was responding to a post from the former president and Republican front-runner that said he was honored to receive Fisher and the group’s support. In his post, Trump claimed he did more for Black people than any other president, with “Lincoln” in parentheses with a question mark.

Fisher, the senior director of BLM in Rhode Island, endorsed Trump on Tuesday because he said he thinks “everybody else sucks.”

“I like Trump, you know, personally, and I think right now, who we have sitting in the Oval Office is a deep disappointment,” Fisher said in an interview posted online.

DeSantis took to X to post Trump’s remarks, saying he took action as governor and called up the National Guard during the national 2020 BLM movement.

“When BLM was burning down cities and assaulting police officers in cities across this country, Trump did nothing but sit in the White House tweeting ‘LAW & ORDER!’”

“We did it differently in Florida. I didn’t just tweet,” DeSantis’ post said.

DeSantis, criticizing Trump’s response to the nationwide protests that followed after George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer in 2020, said that when he is elected president, he will not “sit idly by and watch rioters torch American cities.”
