DeSantis is using the same logo as Truth social and is hosting the lawyers who sued Trump’s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and other conservatives on behalf of Dominion, which was at the center of the stolen election lawsuits.
DeSantis is openly mocking voter fraud and Donald Trump. https://t.co/zVzelXMHkY
