Offering a taste

Trump is fuming.

Former President Donald Trump ripped Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in a flurry of posts on Truth Social on Thursday, calling him an “average Republican governor with great Public Relations.”

In a public statement also posted on Truth Social, Trump unleashed on his one-time ally, offering a taste of the potential insults to come if the two face off in 2024. The Florida governor is seen as a potential 2024 presidential hopeful, which could challenge the former president’s hold on the GOP should DeSantis decide to run for president.

“And now, Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games! The Fake News asks him if he’s going to run if President Trump runs, and he says, ‘I’m only focused on the Governor’s race, I’m not looking into the future.’ Well, in terms of loyalty and class, that’s really not the right answer,” Trump posted on Truth Social on Thursday. In another post, Trump took credit for DeSantis’ first run.

Ah yes, Donald Trump, prince of loyalty and class.

DeSantis has not said whether he plans to serve out his full second term as governor as the 2024 general election rolls around. And Trump has not been taking the prospect of a matchup against DeSantis quietly.

“If he did run, I will tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. “I know more about him than anybody other than perhaps his wife, who is really running his campaign.”

Psst – he’s telling us DeSantis is pussywhipped. A real man doesn’t let women run anything.
