DeSantis made headlines after he said that “Democrats want to bring back slavery” and that “the radical left wants to abolish America’s constitutional republic and replace it with a socialist dictatorship.” McCarthy also made headlines this week after he said that “the media is the opposition party” and that “the press is the enemy of the people”.
Trump, meanwhile, made headlines for his controversial statement about separating families at the border.

Latest Events with Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump
The week of DeSantis News ; McCarthy, and Trump was one of the most important in recent history for the Republican-Democrat divide in the United States.
On Monday, Ron DeSantis became the first sitting GOP U.S. Representative to lose a bid for Governor in Florida in over 20 years. This defeat marked a dramatic change in the party’s fortunes in Florida; which had been consider a stronghold for the Republicans.
Two days later, on Tuesday, Roy Moore was elect to a seat in the U.S. Senate after facing several allegations of sexual misconduct with minors. Moore was previously remove from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court after he refuse to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the courthouse.
On Friday, Donald Trump announced that he would run for re-election as President of the United States. This announcement marked another major victory for Trump, who has long been considered one of the most successful Presidents in American history.
It was a week that defined the GOP-Democrat divide in American politics.
On one side of the divide was Florida Congressman Ron DeSantis, who won the Republican nomination for governor in Florida despite making racist comments about his opponent, Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.
On the other side of the divide was U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, who announce she will not run for re-election in California despite being one of the most senior Democrats in the Senate. Feinstein is accuse of sexual harassment by several former staffers.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump endorsed DeSantis and attacked Gillum on Twitter. Trump has long been a supporter of the far-right wing in America, and his endorsement may have helped DeSantis win the election.
This week highlighted the stark difference between the two political parties in America. The GOP is focus on supporting candidates who are conservative and white, while the Democrats are focus on promoting diversity and inclusion. These differences will likely continue to define American politics in the years to come.
This past week was a pivotal one for the Republicans and Democrats in the United States. On one side, we had Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), who won his primary race against Rep. Andrew Gillum (D-FL) by a large margin. On the other side, we had Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX), who lost his bid to become the next mayor of San Antonio.
These two incidents highlight the divide that exists between the Republicans and Democrats in the United States. DeSantis is a staunch conservative who is pro-Trump, while Castro is more moderate and has been critical of Trump in the past. This divide will likely continue to grow as we move forward, as both parties try to win over voters in different ways.
This past week has been define by the GOP-Democrat divide in America, as both major political parties saw their candidates come under fire for various reasons. Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum was accuse of corruption and nepotism after it was reveal he has taken illegal donations from a donor whose company receive state contracts. Meanwhile, Republican candidate Ron DeSantis was called racist after he made an inflammatory remark about immigrants during a debate.
Despite these scandals, however, the Democrats managed to pull off a string of victories in key races across the country. On Tuesday night, they won Georgia’s gubernatorial election , which is seen as a significant upset victory because of how close the race was and how well DeSantis perform in rural areas. On Thursday night, they won Nevada’s gubernatorial election , cementing their status as the party of change in America. And on Sunday night, they won Wisconsin’s presidential primary elections , breaking open what had previously been consider one of Trump’s strongholds.
These wins show that no matter how bad things might seem for either party right now, there is still potential for them to make huge gains in 2022 if they continue to focus on connecting with voters on issues that matter to them.
