Ron DeSantis is "far more dangerous" than Donald Trump, an ex-GOP Florida congressman said on MSNBC.
Former Rep. David Jolly called DeSantis "a cultural warrior who wants to take us back 100 years."
Jolly, who represented Florida's 13th congressional district from 2014 to 2017, has vehemently opposed Trump.
An ex-GOP Florida congressman who has vehemently opposed Donald Trump said the former president's top Republican rival, Gov. Ron DeSantis, would be "far more dangerous" for the United States than Trump.
"I say this with conviction — I think Ron DeSantis is far more dangerous than Donald Trump for a very specific reason," former Rep. David Jolly said Sunday on MSNBC's, "The Mehdi Hasan Show."
"Donald Trump is willing to ignore the rules, ignore the Constitution, and frankly lead to the incitement of January 6th," said Jolly, who is a political contributor for MSNBC. "But Donald Trump is a transactional figure and he'll do whatever it takes to win."
Jolly said that he believes DeSantis, the Florida governor, "is a cultural warrior who wants to take us back 100 years and believes he can use the Constitution to that end and ultimately has a very dark vision of what America will be."
The former congressman — who represented Florida's 13th congressional district from 2014 to 2017 — called DeSantis "a very dark figure on the political landscape."
DeSantis formally announced that he is running for president in the 2024 election last week. DeSantis is widely regarded as the top contender against Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.
