In wake of the latest reports suggesting former President Donald Trump might be arrested as early as Tuesday, far-right conservatives are calling on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) to weigh in and possibly take action to prevent it.

Conservatives have taken to social media platforms to share their reactions to Trump's latest announcement about the possible arrest.

Former Trump White House advisor Jason Miller tweeted, "Thank you, Vice President [Mike_Pence] and [VivekGRamaswamy], for pointing out how Radical Left Democrats are trying to divide our Country in the name of Partisan Politics. Radio silence from Gov. [RonDeSantisFL] and Amb. [Nikki Haley].

Mike Cernovich also took aim at the former president in a string of Twitter posts.

"DeSantis is making his first unforced error by not denouncing this lawless act," he tweeted. "He should say he will only extradite if there’s proper legal review. This is one of those pivotal moments in your life. If he gets this wrong, then he’s better off not even declaring."

Cernovich added, “‘I will not extradite a presidential candidate to a Soros DA who allows violent criminals to roam free until there has been a proper legal review conducted under Florida law. If lawful, then extradition may occur, but not one day sooner.’ DeSantis has to say this."

Right-wing figure Stew Peters also echoed similar claims while describing DeSantis as "a fraud."

"If Ron Desantis is the conservative hero he projects himself to be, he should REFUSE to honor the arrest warrant for President-in-exile Trump and send the Florida National Guard to Mar-a-Lago to ensure Trump’s protection. Period," he tweeted. "Anything less proves Desantis is a fraud."

Despite the ongoing calls for action from DeSantis, the Republican governor has remained relatively mum on Trump's legal woes.
