EPOCH TIMES features Admiral Kubic and Stan Fitzgerald in story on Trump vs Desantis re: changes in the military.
From the Article by Journalist Patricia Tolson:
Stan Fitzgerald, a retired police detective and president of Veterans for America First/Veterans for Trump, acknowledges that Mr. DeSantis “is a good governor” and has done a lot for the military in the state of Florida. However, he says Mr. Trump “has an established track record for running the country and he has always been good to veterans and first responders on a national level.”
Mr. Fitzgerald also told The Epoch Times that feedback from the millions of veterans and first responders who visit his organization’s website says “they are supporting President Trump” because they see Mr. DeSantis as part of the “establishment.”
While Mr. Fitzgerald conceded it “may sound slanted” that the veterans group would back the former president as their candidate of choice, he said he’s “not sure DeSantis has that kind of national support.”
On Nov. 15, 2022, Veterans for America First announced its support for Mr. Trump’s 2024 campaign.
While commending the accomplishments of Mr. DeSantis as governor in support of Florida’s active military, veterans, and their families, Mr. Fitzgerald believes Mr. Trump will have more success in bringing necessary changes to the military because of his track record in fulfilling his promises on a national level.
He noted how the accomplishments of Mr. DeSantis have come in a deep red state with super-majorities in both the state House and Senate and not a single Democrat in any state-level office. As president, Mr. DeSantis would have only a slim majority in the U.S. House and a Senate controlled by Democrats.
“Trump is the originator of the America First movement and it’s ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept,’” Mr. Fitzgerald said.
