Florida won’t extradite Trump – DeSantis – RT World News

The former US leader is a resident of Florida and is expected to be arraigned next week

Donald Trump’s potential main rival for the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, has torn the New York prosecutor behind the former president’s indictment.

“Florida will not assist with an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda,” DeSantis said in a tweet Thursday.

So far, no potential extradition requests have been flagged, as a spokesperson for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office told AP that prosecutors have contacted Trump’s legal team to “arranging a surrender” and a court appearance, scheduled for next week.

DeSantis previously said he wouldn’t get implied in the case “whatever sort of,” indicating he would not try to help block the Florida resident’s extradition to New York, but has now echoed Trump’s belief that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg “expands the law to target a political opponent.”

“The militarization of the legal system to advance a political agenda upsets the rule of law. It’s not American.” DeSantis added.
