Trump Praises Ron DeSantis, Calls Him ‘Extraordinary’ For Calling Black Opponent A ‘Monkey’

Donald Trump decided to praise Republican candidate for governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday after it was revealed that he called his opponent a “monkey.”

Trump was taking questions from reporters in the Cabinet Room when CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed the president on DeSantis comments.

Acosta pointed out to Trump that the Republican candidate had used to the phrase “monkey this up” when referring to Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum.

“He’s said it’s not time to monkey around with the economy down in Florida,” Acosta explained to the president.

Trump brushed it off by claiming that he never heard him say that.

“Yeah, I didn’t hear that, Jim,” Trump answered. “I’ve been actually working on the deal with Canada.”

“Is it racist?” Acosta then asked.

But instead of answering the question, Trump decided to praise DeSantis.

“Ron DeSantis is extraordinary,” Trump said. “Harvard, Yale. Brilliant. Ran an incredible campaign.”
