Trump and DeSantis coincided campaigning in the state of Iowa (midwest). DeSantis participated in rallies in the cities of Salix, Council Bluffs and Cedar Rapids. On Tuesday he had visited the state capital, Des Moines.

In these scenarios, he cited as strengths of his candidacy that he opposed federal mandates on vaccination against Covid-19, his position against crime and pedophilia, and his support for laws that further restrict abortion in Florida.

He questioned the handling of the immigration issue by the Biden Administration, which he blamed for generating a crisis on the southern border. He defended the signing of legislation in Florida that restricts the access of undocumented immigrants to the labor market.

This law has already received harsh criticism, including from Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and by this Thursday worker protests had been organized in several Florida cities with the purpose of rejecting it.

According to local media, in meetings with voters DeSantis also mentioned as achievements the elimination of the Critical Theory of race and gender ideologies subject in schools in the southern state, supposedly to protect children.

He reproached Trump for having abandoned the principles of his “America First” policy regarding immigration and for having supported anti-covid restrictions. He said that from now on he will respond to all the verbal attacks that the former president makes against him. He singled out China as the "greatest threat to the United States today."

Trump, who is scheduled to hold a rally Thursday in Des Moines, issued a statement calling DeSantis "a failure for Iowa and farmers." Previously, he questioned his leadership by recalling that Florida was "the third worst state in terms of deaths from Covid."

Both candidates are leading the polls within the Republican Party, although DeSantis trails Trump by 30 points. Now they face each other as rivals, but in 2018 this one helped the other to win the governorship of Florida.

According to press reports, a total of six Republican presidential hopefuls have already been registered, including former Vice President Mike Pence and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
