Ron DeSantis appeared to compare his own military service to Donald Trump's draft-dodging when asked how he'd cope with insults hurled by the former president.

Speaking to Fox News on Wednesday night, the Florida governor said such jibes would pale in comparison to the hardships experienced by service personnel - with the lawmaker himself once serving as a Navy lawyer.

Trump, by comparison, dodged being drafted into the Vietnam War by claiming he suffered from bone spurs - and DeSantis was seemingly keen to highlight the ex-president's much-mocked excuse.

He told Fox he was unconcerned about potential insults on the campaign trail, saying: 'If the sacrifice I have to make is people are going to call me names, that pales into comparison with what so many people have done for me throughout history so that I could live in a free country.'
