Trump claimed he could turn the country around in six years this morning, ridiculing DeSantis for saying he needed eight years to do it.

A reporter asked DeSantis about this earlier today and here’s what he said:
.@GovRonDeSantis responds to my question about former President Trump saying he’d fix the U.S. in six months after DeSantis previously said he’d need two terms to turn the country around.

DeSantis responded: “Why didn’t he do it in his first four years?”
Boom. What a great response. Point, DeSantis.
And by the way, here’s what DeSantis actually said about needing eight years: “Let’s just be clear, it really does take two terms as president to be able to finish this job. The bureaucracy is so entrenched that I think we can bring George Washington back, and I don’t think he could fix it in one single four-year term.”
