DeSantis Responds to Trump’s Guilty Verdict – ‘Kangaroo Court’

On Thursday night, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis responded to the guilty verdict on 34 felonies against Donald Trump delivered by a ‘kangaroo court.’

The jury never explained what crime Trump committed and was not required to explain what crime Trump committed.

Although they were rivals in the Republican primary, The Gateway Pundit reported DeSantis and Trump confirmed a reconciliation meeting at Shell Bay Club in Hollywood, Florida, in April.

Trump expressed satisfaction with the meeting, noting, “I am very happy to have the full and enthusiastic support of Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida. We had a great meeting yesterday. The conversation mostly concerned how we would work closely together to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”

DeSantis released the following statement on X Thursday night:

Today’s verdict represents the culmination of a legal process that has been bent to the political will of the actors involved: a leftist prosecutor, a partisan judge and a jury reflective of one of the most liberal enclaves in America—all in an effort to “get” Donald Trump.

That this case—involving alleged misdemeanor business records violations from nearly a decade ago—was even brought is a testament to the political debasement of the justice system in places like New York City. This is especially true considering this same district attorney routinely excuses criminal conduct in a way that has endangered law-abiding citizens in his jurisdiction.

It is often said that no one is above the law, but it is also true that no one is below the law. If the defendant were not Donald Trump, this case would never have been brought, the judge would have never issued similar rulings, and the jury would have never returned a guilty verdict.

In America, the rule of law should be applied in a dispassionate, even-handed manner, not become captive to the political agenda of some kangaroo court.
