While Florida Governor Ron DeSantis isn’t yet officially in the 2024 presidential race, most experts believe that it will be only a matter of time before he throws his hat in the ring.
Donald Trump certainly appears to think DeSantis will be challenging him on the campaign trail, and the feud between these two conservative heavyweights is heating up again this week as the former President begins to make some rather lewd and provocative suggestions about the Sunshine State lawmaker.
Trump, in a post on Truth Social, raised questions about DeSantis’s sexuality and once again peddled his groomer smear against the Florida Republican who is seen as a potential presidential candidate in 2024.
“Ron DeSanctimonious will probably find out about FALSE ACCUSATIONS & FAKE STORIES sometime in the future, as he gets older, wiser, and better known, when he’s unfairly and illegally attacked by a woman, even classmates that are “underage” (or possibly a man!),” Trump seethed. ‘I’m sure he will want to fight these misfits just like I do!”
Trump’s comments come just hours after DeSantis took a swipe at the presumptive GOP nominee over his potential indictment this week.
“I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star or to secure silence over some time of alleged affair. I just – I can’t speak to that,” DeSantis told reporters on Monday. “But what I can speak is that you have a prosecutor who is ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction and he chooses to go back many, many years ago to try to use something about porn star hush money payments. You know, that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda.”
We can only imagine how forceful Trump’s criticisms of DeSantis will become after the Florida Governor enters the race.
