Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows says that despite rumors and poll numbers Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will not mount a presidential campaign against Donald Trump in 2024 if he decides to run. Meadows’ insight comes after DeSantis recently edged out Trump in the Western Conservative Summit’s straw poll.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“Gov. DeSantis has made it very, very clear that he is running for reelection as governor of Florida, but he doesn’t shy away from being very bold in terms of the initiatives that he’s putting forth,” the former House Freedom Caucus chairman stated, citing three days he recently spent with DeSantis in California. “His reelect for governor is a platform to show that the policies, and the boldness, and, quite frankly, the courage.”

“You know, I think Ron DeSantis is identified across the country now for the courage that he shows for conservative solutions, and he would be the first to say that if President Trump gets in, that he would win the nomination and would clear the field, and so I don’t ever see it being a 2016 primary scenario,” Meadows continued. “That being said, Gov. DeSantis won’t even — he’s asked over and over and over again every time I’m in his presence — he’s been asked, ‘Are you running in 2024?'”

“His answer has been consistent: He is running for reelection for governor of the state that not only he loves, but one that is, quite frankly, well run because of his leadership.”

Trump recently scheduled his first post-White House rallies, a mainstay of his 2016 and 2020 campaigns, but his former top aide said that “his willingness to get back out” and hold rallies “is more about him connecting with the people and bringing forth that message, and a ‘thank you’ for their willingness to stay in the battle and keep America first.”

Former President Trump and his family are well aware of the Florida Republicans’ popularity amongst the base. In an interview with The Washington Examiner, Donald Trump Jr. was asked who he believed would be the Republican nominee should his father choose not to run and he also named DeSantis as his top choice.

  1. I will be very pleassd to see Pres. Trump as Pres. once more!

  2. Trump will be the nominee, no one will run against him. Because america knows he never lost the election to begin with, he is still our president,hidenbiden is the clown the deep state planted for the time being. He is beyond incompetent, and America and all the world know that.The laughing stock of the world, he proves everyday what a blithering idiot, he is.

  3. Trump vs DrSantis, that would b a hard choice, however, I think voters would lean toward DeSantis. Trump was ‘the man’, a true patriot; but let’s face the obvious, he was abrasive, and that did not go well with most voters. Second, for Trump, The DC swamp, the dark state, will never let up on him, I mean never. That is sick and sad, but reality.

    1. Bill, the Swamp, should we accept letting them do their wicked deeds ? Or do We the People need to root them out and do way with them? I am for the latter, if you ignore vermin, like we always have, they just get stronger and stronger. I think Trump and DeSantis would be a team that would be hard to recon with, they are both STRONG Patriotic men and determined in their goals…..why pit them against one another ? As a team they could chew bubble gum and kick some evil butts in the process !!!

    2. I agree. The dems are focused on hatred and destruction of Trump and those associated with him. Not yet for DeSantis.

  4. I have never been dissuaded from the conclusion that Trump’s greatest desire is to do what’s best for the United States and her people, while maintaining consideration for the world at large.

  5. And what about a Trump-DeSantis ticket? Sounds like a winner to me…if the RINO snowflakes can tolerate a few ‘mean tweets.’ Tee hee hee….

  6. How about Trump for President and DeSantis for VP. After 4 years of Trump, 8 years of DeSantis!
