If you were dialed in during the 2020 election cycle, Governor Ron DeSantis’s “Great American Comeback” slogan will sound very familiar because Trump said it first.
The Trump campaign noticed too and released an email that reads “Amid a catastrophic failure to launch, Ron DeSantis announced his candidacy with ‘Great American Comeback,’ a phrase stolen from President Donald J. Trump’s 2020 State of the Union address.”
Watch Trump use the phrase here:

Here’s what Business Insider reported:
President Donald Trump launched another attack on his freshly minted GOP presidential rival Gov. Ron DeSantis, this time accusing him of plagiarizing his 2020 State of the Union speech.
Trump’s camp sent an email circular on Wednesday evening shortly after DeSantis formally announced his presidential bid on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk. The announcement was marred with technical glitches.
Trump’s email said: “Amid a catastrophic failure to launch, Ron DeSantis announced his candidacy with ‘Great American Comeback,’ a phrase stolen from President Donald J. Trump’s 2020 State of the Union address.”
Trump’s said in his State of the Union address in 2020: “Three years ago, we launched the Great American Comeback. Tonight I stand before you to share the incredible results.”
