Ron DeSantis Fight with Disney is a Political Stunt says Donald Trump

DeSantis teased on a news conference Monday to build a new state prison next to Disney’s theme park in Florida pushing for new legislation to overturn the company development agreement. The agreement gives the company at least 30 years of the sole right to develop its land.

The ongoing feud between the Florida Governor and his state’s largest employer began on March 2022 when Disney’s then-Chief Executive Bob Chapek criticized against Parental Rights in Education Act limits the discussion of sexual orientation and sexual activity, gender identity, and dysphoria or transgenderism in Florida elementary school classrooms. The bill was signed by Gov. DeSantis and had the moniker “Don’t Say Gay Bill”.

Former President Donald Trump criticizes DeSantis’ efforts to maintain control over land and escalates the latter’s battle with Walt Disney Co. In the article in The Wall Street Journal, the former President used a derogatory nickname saying “DeSanctus is being absolutely destroyed by Disney”. Trump warned that Disney could stop investing in Florida and interfering with a private business had gone too far.
