DeSantis hits Trump for adding $8 trillion in debt and backing 'amnesty'

Presidential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said former President Donald Trump added trillions to the national debt and supported amnesty for illegal immigrants in an unusually direct criticism of his biggest rival in the 2024 Republican primary.

DeSantis acknowledged to reporters on Wednesday night that Trump is running attacks on him, specifically "attacking me for voting against an omnibus spending bill that he signed when he was president." According to DeSantis, Trump is "drawing helpful contrast with me now."

"I think he should not have signed those omnibus spending bills," DeSantis said. "He added almost 8 trillion to the debt in a four year period of time."

DeSantis said he is happy being "on the conservative side of that debate."

"Our debt's gone up way too much," he added.

"He also attacked me for voting against an amnesty bill that he had endorsed — 2 million person amnesty bill, Goodlatte II in 2018," DeSantis explained.
