"Fort Lauderdale is under water and DeSantis is campaigning in Ohio right now instead of taking care of the people suffering in his state," he penned.

DeSantis decided to take a trip to Ohio for a Butler County Republican Party event, regardless of the scary conditions his constituents face back home. The politician declared a state of emergency on Thursday, April 12, in Broward County after the area received over two feet of rain.

"I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’m sure he’s very interested in what’s going on here, and we’re happy to work with his office," the mayor said. "I’m not sure if the governor himself needs to be involved, but the state agencies have been very helpful in working with us to take on this challenge."

Don Jr.’s tweet was not the first time the Trump camp has slammed their biggest opponent for the 2024 Republican presidential bid. The now indicted ex-commander-in-chief criticized DeSantis on Truth Social this week.

"If he remains Governor, which is what Florida voters assumed, it would be a whole different story….JUST SAYIN’ – But who knows?" the MAGA leader added.

Additionally, the former president spoke with Sean Hannity, attributing DeSantis’ success to his endorsement.

"By the way, he would have never gotten the nomination — he would be working in either a pizza parlor place or a law office right now and he wouldn't be very happy. It's about loyalty, it's about loyalty to me," he said.
