Ron DeSantis reminded Laura Ingraham of one unfortunate truth about Donald Trump’s Presidency and the Swamp

Aug 17, 2023

Donald Trump ran for President in 2016 on a promise to “Drain the Swamp” in Washington, D.C.

But seven years later and the Swamp is stronger than ever.

And Ron DeSantis reminded Laura Ingraham of one unfortunate truth about Donald Trump’s Presidency and the Swamp.

The first Republican Presidential debate is set for August 23 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy, Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, and Chris Christie have all qualified to appear on stage at the debate on Wednesday.

However, Donald Trump is planning on skipping the debate due to his massive lead over the rest of the field.

Fresh off a campaign reboot, Ron DeSantis is hoping the debate will serve as a momentum boost that helps him close the gap on Donald Trump’s lead.

On Tuesday, DeSantis appeared on Fox News Channel’s Ingraham Angle for an interview with host Laura Ingraham.

Naturally, Joe Biden’s weaponization of the justice system against Donald Trump was at the top of the agenda for the interview after a Democrat prosecutor in Atlanta handed down a fourth indictment this week to the former President.

“So, if I’m you, how do I convince the GOP voters that while these indictments are obviously political lawfare, I guess you could call it, that you’re still the one who’s most electable?” Ingraham asked DeSantis. “How do you make that argument?”

DeSantis said the only way to “end the weaponization of federal power through the DOJ and the FBI” is for Republicans to choose a nominee who can defeat Joe Biden next November.

The Florida Governor told Ingraham he believes he is the candidate who can both defeat Joe Biden and “get the job done” cleaning out the Swamp.

“So, for example, with me as President, on day one, Christopher Wray gets sent packing,” DeSantis said. “You’re going to see the DOJ cleared out,” he continued, before adding that “we are going to ensure a single standard of justice in this country again.”

DeSantis then cited his record in Florida as proof that he has what it takes to clean out the Deep State and end the corruption.

“And I can say that with credibility because I’ve done that in the State of Florida,” DeSantis said. “We’ve drained the Swamp in here,” he continued, adding that “I’ve shown an ability to take action and get the job done, and as the President, I am going to do the same thing.”

Ingraham followed up by asking DeSantis if he thought Donald Trump would not fire Wray and clean out the Swamp if elected to a second term.

DeSantis did not hold back, telling Ingraham that Trump “had three years to fire Christopher Wray and he didn’t fire him.”

He then ripped Donald Trump for not following through on his promise to put Hillary Clinton in jail.

“You remember them, ‘lock her up, lock her up,’ about holding Hillary accountable,” he said in reference to the “lock her up” chants in 2016. “And then, two weeks after the election, he said ‘never mind that I said that’ and let her off the hook.”

DeSantis admitted Trump did several “great things” during his four years in office.

However, he added that “one of the things he did not do was Drain the Swamp.”

“And so, I think if you look at — and I give him credit even though we’re competing for the great things he did do — but one of the things he did not do was Drain the Swamp,” DeSantis said. “The Swamp got worse in his four years.”

As for corrupt officials like Christopher Wray, DeSantis said the key is that “you’ve got to take very swift action and you’ve got to make it happen.”
