Ron DeSantis Says Trump Jan 6 Charges Would Not be Good for U.S.
In an interview on Tuesday, DeSantis expressed charges against Trump over his overturning of 2020 election results in the battleground states that caused the severe January 6 attack on Congress would be bad for the United States.
When asked whether the governor thinks Trump should be held responsible for the incidents that incited the deadly January 6 attack on Congress.
DeSantis said about Trump, “So here is the problem. This country is going down the road of criminalizing political differences. And I think that’s wrong.”

DeSantis said, “Criminal charges are not just because you may have done something wrong. It is. Did you behave criminally? And I think what we have seen in this country is an attempt to criminalize politics and to try to criminalize differences. So I don’t know what was all about that.”

DeSantis added, “Look, there is a difference between being brought up on criminal charges and doing things. For example, I think it was shown how Trump was in the White House on January 6, 2021, and didn’t do anything while things were happening at the Capitol. He should have come out more forcefully, of course.”
The Florida governor did not mention the charges against Trump and his aide Walt regarding the mishandling of classified documents and the ongoing investigations in other cases against Trump.

DeSantis then stated that as a Republican Presidential candidate, he wishes to have a future perspective rather than focusing on issues that happened a few years ago.
The Florida governor said, “As President, my job will be to restore a single standard of justice, to end weaponization of these federal agencies. This country needs to have a debate about its future. If I am the nominee, I will be able to focus on President Joe Biden’s failures and articulate a positive vision for the future.”
