Donald Trump Jr. blasted Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday for refusing to get involved in former President Donald Trump’s potential extradition.

DeSantis told reporters Monday he will not get involved in a potential extradition if Trump is arrested on Tuesday for allegedly paying $130,000 in hush funds to former porn star Stormy Daniels — with whom the former president allegedly had an affair — before the 2016 presidential election.

“I have no interest in getting involved in some type of manufactured circus by some Soros DA,” DeSantis said, in reference to Manhattan Attorney General Alvin Bragg. ““He’s trying to do a political spectacle … I’ve got real issues I’ve got to deal with here in the state of Florida. We’re not getting involved in it in any way.”

The former president’s son accused DeSantis of “weaponizing the law” and showing “pure weakness.”

“So DeSantis thinks that Dems weaponizing the law to indict President Trump is a ‘manufactured circus’ & isn’t a ‘real issue,'” Trump Jr. said. “Pure weakness. Now we know why he was silent all weekend. He’s totally owned by Karl Rove, Paul Ryan & his billionaire donors. 100% Controlled  Opposition.”

DeSantis accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is expected to indict the former president, of attempting to “weaponize” his office to put forth a “political agenda.” (RELATED: ‘If This Happens Trump Will Be Re-Elected’: Elon Musk Warns Democrats On Trump Indictment) 

“The Manhattan District Attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor and so he like, other Soros funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety,” DeSantis said. “He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors, he says he doesn’t even want to have jail time for the vast majorities of crimes.”

Trump announced his potential indictment in a Saturday statement, saying he expects to be arrested on Tuesday. He called on people to “protest” and “take our nation back” in a Truth Social post.
