As Former President Donald Trump faces his third indictment, he received support from an ally turned foe, who is contesting against him in the 2024 Republican presidential primary.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis vouched to end weaponization of the government in the wake of Trump's indictment over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

“As President, I will end the weaponization of government, replace the FBI Director, and ensure a single standard of justice for all Americans,” the Florida governor tweeted.

DeSantis said he sees the necessity for enacting reforms so that “Americans have the right to remove cases from Washington DC to their home districts.”

“Washington, DC, is a ‘swamp’ and it is unfair to have to stand trial before a jury that is reflective of the swamp mentality,” he added.

The presidential hopeful also said politicization of the rule of law is one of the reasons that the country is in decline.

“I will end the weaponization of the federal government.”
