Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized former President Donald Trump for not taking action to stop the BLM riots during an interview with CNN after the Republican presidential debate.

DeSantis mentioned that Trump failed to provide federal support and utilize the National Guard to maintain order during the riots.

He also highlighted Trump’s failure to fulfill promises such as building the wall and carrying out deportations. (Trending: Fox News Star Accused Of Major Scandal)

DeSantis emphasized that Trump’s absence on the debate stage reflects his awareness of vulnerabilities in his record, and suggested that Trump could have invoked the Insurrection Act to address the riots.

“I hit him,” DeSantis said.

“Obviously, he should have been on that stage and we would have mixed it up more, but they talked about his quot[ation] about using the Insurrection Act to go into the cities. He had the BLM riots on his watch.”

“He never did a thing to stop any of the rioting. He didn’t give any federal support. And so, we held him accountable for that. We held him accountable for not building the wall, not doing the deportations, and other broken promises.”

“But it’s easier to do that when somebody’s willing to go on the stage. And I think the reason that he doesn’t go on the stage is because he knows that there are vulnerabilities in his record.”

“Well, he did have the right to invoke the Insurrection Act. That’s one of the whole reasons the Constitution was created, because they feared mob violence. You had places like Minneapolis that were burning down,” he added.

“And by the way, that has not recovered. That’s going to take, probably, decades to recover. He could have gone in and brought in National Guard, federalized the Guard, and kept order.”
