Trump Hits Ron DeSantis’ ‘Dull Personality’ Ahead of Potential 2024 Showdown

Gage Skidmore Flickr

Former President Trump insulted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis again ahead of a potential 2024 matchup between the two Republicans. Background: Some have speculated Trump’s disdain for the Florida Governor has been growing as DeSantis’s popularity continues to grow amongst the conservative base. Many pollsters have claimed DeSantis would likely be the Republican Party’s 2024 nominee if the former President doesn’t run, and be a worthy challenger if he decides to run. DeSantis has claimed he’s only focused on running for re-election in Florida and has no plans to run for president in 2024. Other potential Republican contenders such as Mike Pompeo and Kristi Noem, have agreed not to run if former President Trump launches a campaign. However, DeSantis has made no such pledge. What Happened: According to two sources close to Trump, the former president said DeSantis, “has no personal charisma and has a dull personality.” “In the context of the 2024 election, he usually gives DeSantis a pop in the nose in the middle of that type of conversation,” said a source who recently spoke to Trump about DeSantis. (per Axios) Context: Individuals close to former President Trump have said his contempt for the Florida governor has been growing because he hasn’t made it clear whether he will back down if Trump runs for president once more. Previously, many guessed he was referring to DeSantis when he called politicians choosing to keep their vaccination history vague “gutless” during an OAN interview. “You gotta say it — whether you had it or not,” Trump said. “Say it.” DeSantis also surprised Republicans when he reflected on one of his “biggest regrets” regarding the former President. “one of his biggest regrets in office was not speaking out “much louder” in March 2020, when Trump advised the American public to stay home to slow the spread of the coronavirus.” (per Axios) What Happens Next: So far, no Republicans have made any official announcement for 2024. However, Trump has continued to hint at launching a third presidential campaign. Republican lawmakers, such as Lindsey Graham, have said that if Trump does decide to run, he will receive the Republican nomination.

Boy, do I have to agree with you. I loved the job Trump did as President and would vote for him again, but going back to his Apprentice days, I always thought he was a jerk. I don’t want to have a beer with him I just want him as President. DeSantis is very popular and on the rise and I would think a good bet for the top of the ticket in 2028. I think Trump’s ego has him thinking DeSantis might launch a primary challenge. Unless Trump alienates so many people with crap like this, I think the nomination is his if he wants it. To paraphrase some old Democrat, “The only thing Trump has to fear is Trump himself”

Governor DeSantis is quite lively compared to “Sleepy Joe” or even Old Bernie. President Trump should be more appreciative of his governor; he’s much better than Andrew Cuomo or Kathy Hochul.

Personally they should team up and run together in 2024. Trump for POTUS and DeSantis VP. Then Desantis could take over after his second term that he deserved. Joe Biden and Kamala should have not been elected to anything in WH or Congress. Most Americans know that but some just
do not care they hate Trump because he exposed the corruption both Dems and Rinos. For some reason the think they are going to benefit but on the Dem. Elites will find a way to line their bank accounts.

Message for Trump; Hey, you are both warriors, fighting under the same Commander in Chief. His name is God Almighty. Try to get along. Close ranks. There are a bunch of you. A few of them are as follows. Greg Abbott, Larry Elder, Winsome Sears, Herschel Walker, Tim Scott, DeRoy Murdock. Again, close ranks.

Hey Donald, you lost to Joe Biden because the bull in the China shop act was too much, people like dull and getting the job done more than they like drama and getting the job done. I loved your Presidency and your policies but know when to shut up. Desantis is a good guy and follows Trump policies and maybe, just maybe he could get things done that you can’t simply because he hasn’t opened his mouth every chance he got. I would love to think there could be a 2nd term for Trump but if it risks me having to have someone like Biden as the other choice then I prefer dull and getting the job done, no offense.

Trump was exactly the right person to get the message across that he put forth, unfortunately that did not result in a 2nd term for whatever reason and from whatever criminal behavior the Democrats perpetrated on the American public in 2020. But the Dems will play dirty again and its too important to this country to defeat them, and if you love this country as much as I think/know you do, you would realize that any missteps and these criminals will be back destroying this country in 2024, I do not underestimate their abilities to do whatever it takes to steal an election and destroy this country, you shouldn’t either. As talented as you are Mr. President, you could not stop them from getting into the White House, even knowing who you are dealing with. The win in 2024 can’t even be close or they will steal it, either execute a sound plan correctly or get out of the way because this is not a joke any longer!

Trump is fast going from Hero of the people to Zero of the people. First pushing and STILL defending Genocidal jabs…Now attacking America’s best Governor….. Pushing these “vaccines is unforgivable. Trump lost me and about half his supporters with his inability to admit one of the biggest mistakes in history. DeSantis is now our best hope…and if Trump cared about what’s best for America..he would step aside and support Ron!!.

Seriously doubt your numbers, Zoltar, about President Trump. He is the best and most effective President our country has had for years, and, there’s no doubt in my mind that he loves America and the American people and works for us! I love DeSantis, too, and feel he would make a good President as well. But I would much rather see President Trump and DeSantis run as Pres and VP. I think they would make a formidable pair! But given your attitude, and should Trump run, does that mean you will not vote for him, therefore possibly enabling the Democrats to continue down their road of destruction of our Constitution and freedoms?? Because that kind of rationale is exactly why we’re in this mess today!

Governor DeSantis has never even hinted at running for POTUS. His wife Casey is battling cancer while caring for three small children. Gov DeSantis is governing our great state of FL while accompanying his wife for her treatments.

Governor DeSantis is one of the finest human beings among us, and I agree with you, Diana. His primary focus, as it should be, is on his wife and children, and in continuing to do the right things for Florida. He’s a good one! And may God bless Casey with healing.

The president has the power to deploy the marines w/o congressional authority!! The marines would have sttod with him! This was a coup against him america and the american people! He could have established military tribunals and the arrested miley militarily for treason with china in promising then a tip on what our president was doing! He would declare temporary marshall law to investigate all the mountains of evidence thats has now been squelched!!

Trump got a lot of votes in 2016 because Hillary is a lying POS and enough people caught on to her finger wagging hypocritical morality and her shrieking voice that would surely have done us in, probably like it did Willy boy. Trump won and that was fun, a fluke; however, he doesn’t need to be such an a-hole and bully all the time. It is not fitting for an effective leader. Ron DeSantis needs to stay in Florida for now to keep the commies down, especially the trash coming from NJ/NY to subvert the freedom train, same has protection needed in Texas to stop the influs of crap from CA. Are there any true statespersons capable of standing against the forces from Hell? Please stand up. Time to forego party politics and come back to “We the People.” BTW, Is Bernie running again to fill his coffers and buy some more mansions with fundraising from his deadheads?

Dear DJT you are alienating your following by attacking your own party,Brandon is who you should be complaining about not De Santis who is on your side. If you could muster up an apology it would bode well for you because you were having a bad day and someone said something that was repeated “out of context” that made you respond like that! people will respect you if you concentrate upon your own great personality and “Good record” and just let We the People ” make up our own minds as the Republican Party focuses on “FAIR AND PROPER ELECTIONS”………..

Just a reminder: The Constitution specifically states the the Pres. candidate and the VP candidate cannot be from the same state. So Trump and DeSantis cannot run together.
They can run sequentially. I also agree with the folks on this list that Trump should stick to pointing out the horrible failures of PINO Biden, and run on his own record of achievements rather than insulting other Conservatives.
