image for Donald Trump Says He 'Sent in the FBI' To Stop Ron DeSantis Losing Election

Donald Trump has claimed that he stopped Ron DeSantis from losing his 2018 gubernatorial election by sending in federal agents to prevent the race being rigged by voter fraud.

Trump then took credit for DeSantis beating Democrat Andrew Gillum in the 2018 gubernatorial election by holding "two massive rallies" in support of DeSantis and fixing his campaign, which the former president said "had completely fallen apart.".

Trump also claims, without evidence, that he helped DeSantis' 2018 election from being "stolen" by sending the FBI and prosecutors to investigate apparent voter fraud.

DeSantis beat Gillum in 2018 by 4,076,186 votes to 4,043,723, a margin of just 0.4 percent of the total ballots cast.

Elsewhere in the statement, Trump accused DeSantis of "playing games" about his future plans within the party.

Hank Sheinkopf, a Democratic strategist, said the next two years will see Trump continuing to "go after" DeSantis in an attempt to downplay the Florida governor's credentials.

"It's going to be Trump trying to do everything you can to destroy DeSantis, and DeSantis laughing while Trump deals with the legal problems he's going to face," Sheinkopf previously told Newsweek. »
