Andrew Gillum Drops The Hammer On Trump And DeSantis In Fiery CNN Interview

Florida’s Democratic candidate for governor Andrew Gillum compared unloaded on his GOP opponent Ron DeSantis and President Donald Trump, comparing them to pigs during a CNN interview.

“I have not called the president a racist, but there are racists in his sympathizers who believe that he may be, which is why they go to his aide, which is why he has provided them cover,” Gillum said on CNN’s “New Day” Thursday. “I believe that Trump’s cover has led to much of the degradation in our political discourse. I think the same is true for Mr. DeSantis, who has accepted money from folks who called the president [Barack Obama] a Muslim N-*-*-*-*-R.”

“They want me to get into name-calling,” he continued. “But as I will rely on some of the advice from my grandmother, she used to say, ‘never, ever wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty, but the pig likes it.’ I can’t think of no one better who wants to wrestle in the mud than the president and Mr. DeSantis.”

Host John Berman switched gears and also asked Gillum about corruption allegations made against him during his time as Tallahassee’s mayor.

Gillum said he has never compromised his values or broken the law and said he has been fully transparent with voters.

“I want to be clear about this. I have never in any way compromised my values, my morals or the law. I’ve been an elected official for 15 years and I’ve been elected repeatedly by doing right, not by doing wrong,” he said.

“The people in my community know me and they trust me. I made it through a Democratic process in the primary election and … voters got to know me and they trust me. And the same is true, which is why we’re going to win this race for governor, is because I have been forthright and honest and transparent with the people of my state all along and I believe that they will trust me to lead this state. And I believe that’s why we’re going to win on Nov. 6.”

This is not the first time that Gillum uses the term pig to fire back at Trump. last week, he tweeted this:
