It appears as though former President Donald Trump has taken aim at Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis. On Wednesday Trump shared a poll to Truth Social in which he was leading the Governor by 21%. While DeSantis has yet to declare he will officially run in 2024, many believe that announcement could come at the end of Florida’s legislative season later this year.


According to Newsweek:

Trump shared a graphic, without comment, on his Truth Social platform that showed the results of a poll conducted by Premise Data among 655 registered voters.

The poll showed Trump with 51 percent support in a hypothetical Republican primary—significantly ahead of DeSantis, who won just 30 percent support, followed by former Vice President Mike Pence on 9 percent.

The former president’s decision to highlight the Premise Data poll comes after video showing him saying he would “handle” DeSantis went viral earlier this week.

The former president told conservative podcast The Water Cooler on Monday: “I got him elected, pure and simple.”

“He would have never… If I said I wasn’t going to endorse you. And there was no reason to go wild about endorsing him,” Trump went on.

“So, now I hear he might want to run against me. So we’ll handle that the way I handle things,” he said.

Trump endorsed DeSantis in the 2018 Florida gubernatorial election and has previously suggested that DeSantis would not have won without his support. The governor won re-election in November 2022 and was sworn in for a second term earlier this month.

No other Republicans have declared their intention to run for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination but DeSantis and Pence are widely considered to be mulling a bid, which would see them challenging Trump.

  1. After what happened to President Trump in
    2020; he deserves to be elected as our number “47”
    I admire Ron DeSantis very much, but I do
    hope he waits for his opportunity in 2028.
    We need President Trump to restore our
    country to some sense of normalcy!

  2. If Trump would make an effort to work with DeSantis, as his VP, it could be an unbeatable combination and , I believe, these two very strong leaders might accomplish miracles. It’s what is good for the people of our once great country. Americans have suffered under the present administration. As a team, DeSantis and Trump have the potential to put America back in place as a world leader in many areas since the present administration has all but destroyed our international respect. With Trumps strength and DeSantis’s diplomacy, it could happen. But, I question if Trump would consider such an arrangement.

  3. When they start saying again, “Ladies and Gentlemen” at online work, then I will return, but not until then! Florida is a common sense conservative state where ah-71 most people have brains!

  4. If Trump wants to win the 24 election, he needs to consider DeSantis as his V.p. then America will have the opportunity it needs to win.

  5. Why am I getting these BS emails? I no longer support the arrogant megalomaniac Trump. Most polls NOT run by Trump himself have DeSantis 60% over Donald. Trump did some good for the country but time to move on. He’s toxic and unelectable. Lost most of the GOP base and Independents. You know, those who decide elections. Keep acting like a tyrant by attacking good GOP, Donald. The freaking red wave happened. IN FLORIDA. Ron SeSantis 2024! Over and out.
