Before Florida Governor Ron DeSantis hitched himself to the Trump Train, he was an average establishment Republican in U.S. Congress. DeSantis’ statements early in his political career show his true ideological underpinnings.
In one video, DeSantis responded that former President George Bush was the “most inspirational person” he had ever met. DeSantis said that he met Bush while attending Yale. Both men went to the prestigious Ivy League school, and DeSantis rubbed elbows when Bush came back to visit in 2001.
That video can be seen here:
“Who’s the most inspirational person you’ve met?”
Ron DeSantis: “Bush 41.”
