Ron DeSantis came out swinging at the August 23 debate.

"Our country is in decline. This decline is not inevitable, it's a choice," he stated to a round of applause. "We need to send Joe Biden back to his basement and reverse American decline. We must reverse Bidenomics so that middle class families have a chance to succeed again."

Joe Biden has stuck by his son throughout his struggles.

DeSantis then took a jab at the POTUS' troubled son, Hunter Biden.

"We cannot succeed as a country if you are working hard and you can't afford groceries, a car or a new home while Hunter Biden can make hundreds of thousands of dollars on lousy paintings," he concluded.

"Don’t worry about that," he added. "There may be some finger paint. There may be some stuff that happens, but it’s going to be G-rated."

As OK! reported, the Secret Service never identified who the illegal substance belonged to.

"There was no surveillance video footage found that provided investigative leads or any other means for investigators to identify who may have deposited the found substance in this area," the Secret Service statement read. "Without physical evidence, the investigation will not be able to single out a person of interest from the hundreds of individuals who passed through the vestibule where the cocaine was discovered."
