Will you honor a request from Donald Trump’s ICE agency? Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis asked. Gillum didn’t want to answer the question, and shifted the topic back to DeSantis. If ICE provides a detainer request will you honor it as governor? Will you work with Donald Trump, yes or no? You can proceed with your time, Gillum said.
Ron @RonDeSantisFL DeSantis had a great debate victory tonight against Andrew Gillum, a mayor who presides over one of the worst run, and most corrupt, cities in Florida. Ron will build on the great job done by Governor Rick Scott. Gillum will make Florida the next Venezuela!

The debate went off the rails at times, with Gillum and DeSantis landing several aggressive blows against one another.
As the war of words got underway, Gillum came out swinging, accusing DeSantis of being a foot soldier for Trump’s agenda. At one point, he called DeSantis an “acolyte” to the president.
“Donald Trump is weak and he performs as all weak people do,” Gillum said. “They become bullies.”
The Tallahassee mayor also accused DeSantis of seeking to protect Trump from special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia.
DeSantis was quick to cast himself as the candidate who, if elected, would work hand-in-hand with the Trump administration to address Florida’s policy priorities.
