Former President Trump unleashed an unprovoked attack on newly victorious Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday in the wake of a disastrous midterm election for Republicans.

Trump lashed out at DeSantis, claiming that the midterm elections hadn’t been that bad and then proceeding to also claim that he had won more votes in Florida than DeSantis had.

Several high profile candidates backed by Trump, such as Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Mehmet Oz and Gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, lost badly while many other GOP candidates also suffered severe setbacks.

Many conservative political observers have since turned on Trump, in the process blaming him for the losses and declaring DeSantis the new unofficial head of the party.
