Don Jr. blasted reporter Fabiola Santiago, who in a deleted tweet wrote “Packed beaches should work nicely to thin the ranks of Trump/DeSantis/Gimenez supporters in #Florida who value money over health”
Here is another one of Fabiola’s tweets.
“Here’s the #miamilakes version of stupid this morning, a gathering of Mustang enthusiasts, no masks, and viejos, young people and children as it grew. The red-hatted listening to their masters.”
Don Jr. wrote “This tweet from a Miami Herald columnist tells you all you need to know about her, and based on their hiring choices, likely everything you need to know about the Miami Herald as well. Their flagrant bias continues to go on unchecked. Disgusting.”

Santiago later apologized for the tweet, writing:
THREAD: I deleted the tweet commenting on people at the beach because it didn’t accurately convey my sentiment and I want to apologize for the phrase I used that offended many people. Regardless of political differences, I would never wish any harm on anyone. 1/2
n fact, my intent was to sound an alarm about prematurely opening up the country and the state. I was trying to open eyes, minds and save lives, not create a controversy about me instead of the issue, which merits discussion. #StayHome
Not everyone was buying her explanation.
Of course it accurately conveyed your sentiment.
We all saw it.
It was dripping with smug self-righteousness and giddy vindictiveness.
It was honest.
This is standard PR BS. https://t.co/sih9ku2ZJj

You did. You did wish harm on people. You actually wished death on people. https://t.co/xb13xgcrw4
