One of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s longtime allies has pulled his support for the presidential candidate, choosing instead to back former President Donald Trump.
“Today, in the aftermath of the worst attack on my people since the Holocaust, we have open anti-Semitic protests taking place all over the state, worst of all on our State University campuses,” Rep. Randy Fine stated.
“In 2019, I wrote a bill that would allow the Governor to end these – it was the centerpiece of his trade mission to Israel,” he continued. (Trending: Obama’s Ignorant Remarks On Israel)
Today, I am endorsing @realDonaldTrump
“The past 2 wks have made me realize our choice as Jews is simple. We can vote for the Gov who says the right things, or we can vote for the President who actually does them. When it comes to action, Trump has never let us down.”…

“The bill was simple – our universities already kick kids out who call Black students the ‘n-word’ – as they should. It simply required them to do the same for Jewish kids being told they should be wiped off the earth. When I begged Governor DeSantis to use the bill to protect these children after the attack, he shrugged it off and passed the buck to our University Presidents. They continue to do nothing,” Rep. Randy Fine stated.
“In 2020, I had an open anti-Semite run against me; she called me a ‘pest’ who should be ‘exterminated.’ So many Republican leaders came to my defense; Governor DeSantis did not. He didn’t even endorse me,” Fine continued.
DeSantis’s campaign spokesman Bryan Griffin said Fine’s endorsement of Trump is “nothing more than shameful political theater at a time when Ron DeSantis is leading the charge to support Israel.”
“From working to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, to combating antisemitism throughout Florida and its schools, to securing funding for security at Jewish schools and synagogues, there’s never been a more pro-Israel Governor,” Griffin pressed.
“When Joe Biden stood idly by, Ron DeSantis sent planes to bring over 700 Americans home to safety and called the Florida legislature back for a special session to levy sanctions against Iran and provide further protections to Jewish students and faith communities in Florida.”
“When it comes to standing in defense of Israel, he’s always been a leader who acts and delivers.”
Great decision, welcome to the team. @realDonaldTrump is who America needs to lead us now more than ever.
