Setting aside differences, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis condemned the “weaponization of the legal system” and vowed that Florida would not take part in extraditing President Trump to be arraigned by politically-motivated Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.

“The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head,” DeSantis tweeted on Thursday. “It is un-American.”

The governor slammed Bragg, who reportedly received $1 million from left-wing billionaire George Soros, for “stretching the law to target a political opponent.”

DeSantis made it clear that “Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda.”

While the specific charges against Donald Trump remain unknown, the Manhattan DA’s office confirmed on Twitter that they have contacted Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender and arraignment next week.

“Guidance will be provided when the arraignment date is selected,” Bragg’s office wrote in a statement.
