He said "Gillum will make Florida the next Venezuela".
"Donald Trump promised it and followed through", the candidate said.
"The question was whether Donald Trump is a good role model for the children of Florida", Tapper said. "And he performs as all weak people do", Gillum said. They become bullies, and Mr DeSantis is his acolyte. He's trying out to be the Trump apprentice at every turn. The president held a rally for DeSantis over the summer in his Republican primary fight with Adam Putnam, and endorsed him in Tweet even before he formally announced his bid.
Gillum responded to the President's tweets on Twitter, saying "When you lie about me from the most powerful office in the world and still don't have the courage to @ me". Andrew can't do that. "He wants to impeach Trump, he's always saying bad things about him". "But I think I will be better positioned to advance Florida's priorities because I have a productive relationship with the administration".
Sunday night's debate reflected the larger national dynamics at play in the Florida gubernatorial election, with both candidates repeatedly invoking President Donald Trump and his policies. Instead, The Villages' deeply conservative residents are convinced a Gillum victory would trigger an era of high crime, higher taxes and moral failing.
In 2017, DeSantis led a delegation from the US House of Representatives on a visit to Israel, where they scouted sites for the Jerusalem embassy. Gillum has said repeatedly that the Federal Bureau of Investigation informed him he is not a focus of the probe.
Trump Administration Plans To Change The Definition Of ‘Transgender’

Kim's mother, Kris Jenner , also took the time to share a loving most for the birthday girl. Where can I be seen? Kim explained to Baldwin her long-term effects of the invasion.
"This is a democracy. I'm here fighting for everyday Floridians so that this is a state that works for all of us again". "If you want to look for an example, look at how Rick Scott and I worked with each other in the aftermath of this hurricane".
DeSantis said Gillum's plan would destroy the Florida economy.
DeSantis vowed during Sunday's debate to work closely with the Trump administration, while noting that Gillum has called for Trump's impeachment.
On Sunday, during a debate with opponent Democrat Andrew Gillum, DeSantis had answered a question about whether Mr. Trump is a good role model by talking about Israel and making the point that Mr. Trump had kept his promise to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He argued that the president should be admired for keeping his word.
DeSantis brought up his experience as a Navy officer and his time served in Iraq. "We all have friends that sometimes let us down", Gillum said. "We all wore the same uniform, we all had that American flag patch on our arm and that was end of story", he said. "When you elect me governor, I'm going to put science first". In the hours after the primary election when DeSantis made the "monkey this up" comment, Gillum appeared in an interview with FOX News host Shepard Smith and compared DeSantis's comments with using a racist "dog whistle". "I know that may not fit your description of what you think people like me do". "So far as I know I will die black", he said, adding that "the only color people care about is the blue-green algae" and red tide contaminating Florida waterways.
Voters will decide between Gillum and DeSantis on November 6.
