Recently, Trump has intensified his attacks on DeSantis, calling him “Ron DeSanctimonious” at a rally and on Truth Social insisting that he remains the GOP’s main attraction.
Trump also fired a shot at DeSantis reminding him how many votes he got in Florida and an ad he used calling himself a “pitbull trump defender.”
Here’s the ad put out by the DeSantis campaign when he was running for Governor.
However, according to the NY Post, Ron DeSantis dismissed President Donald Trump’s attacks Tuesday as nothing more than “noise,” advising critics to “check the scoreboard” of his reelection victory.
DeSantis’ remarks came just hours before President Trump announced that he is running for President again in 2024.
In 2024, there is likely to be a Trump/DeSantis primary.
The Western Journal writes, if a Republican presidential primary were held today, 47 percent of Republicans and independents who lean to the GOP would support former President Donald Trump, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll released after last week’s midterm elections.
Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis placed second with 33 percent support.
2024 is going to be an intense year for politics. Not only is it a presidential election year, but it’s also the second time that President Trump will be running for office to unseat a Democrat President. This means that there will be a lot of competition for the Republican nomination, and one of the candidates is likely to be Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. DeSantis has been a vocal supporter of Trump in the past, however, after Trump took DeSantis to the woodshed, the relationship between the two men has become strained. It’s clear that DeSantis is no longer the fawning supporter of Trump that he once was, and the campaign trail leading up to the 2024 election is shaping up to be an interesting year for politics. DeSantis should sit this one out so that the party does not fracture further, then Trump could pick DeSantis for his VP position, which will give DeSantis the platform to take the white house in 2028.
