DeSantis highlights differences with Trump: 'I would have fired' Fauci
Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., drew contrast between his and former President Donald Trump's handling of COVID-19, saying he would have "fired" Dr. Anthony Fauci if he were president during the pandemic.

"Well I think there's a few things," DeSantis told Piers Morgan in an interview, set to air Thursday on Fox Nation, when asked about his differences with Trump. 

"The approach to COVID was different. I would have fired somebody like Fauci. I think he got way too big for his britches, and I think he did a lot of damage," DeSantis told Morgan.

DeSantis recently called out Fauci, former chief medical advisor to Trump, for his involvement in the pandemic, demanding he be "held accountable" particularly with regard to school lockdowns and mask mandates.

The governor, a top rumored contender for the 2024 GOP nomination, said that he and Trump also differ "in terms of my approach to leadership… The way we run the government I think is no daily drama, focus on the big picture and put points on the board and I think that’s something that’s very important."

The Other Outcome That Could Drop Today Regarding the Trump Indictment Saga

Will Donald Trump be placed in handcuffs today? Who knows. It’s a back-and-forth game with sources and numerous reports all virtually saying the same thing: 50/50. The case against the former president is beyond weak, stemming from his alleged hush money payment arrangement with former adult entertainer Stormy Daniels. The Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been caught up in the circus, accused of playing politics in the pursuit of justice; it’s not an illegitimate criticism. The statute of limitations on whatever could be slapped against Trump has expired, and elevating misdemeanors to felonies in this instance is a messy cocktail that no one should want. Leah reported that the NYPD is fully mobilized for whatever happens next, erecting barricades around the courthouse.

Spencer wrote that if there is an indictment, it could be pushed back until next week, as there are reports of new witnesses being called to testify. Some say it could be today, while sources also say that Trump’s team has yet to be informed of any impending indictment and arrest warrant. Also, Bragg could outright decide not to file any charges (via Fox News) [emphasis mine]:
