“Donald Trump has called on Ron DeSantis not to run in 2024 for the good of the Republican Party and warned that he could ‘hurt himself badly’ if he does.
The former president claimed he knew things about Mr DeSantis that were not flattering, adding: “I know more about him than anybody other than, perhaps, his wife.”
Donald Trump sees himself as the MAGA king who’s destined to reclaim his throne, and his evangelical supporters see him as the Messiah who’s been ordained by God to establish a White Nationalist Christian theocracy. Therefore, the MAGA toad considers any Republican who dares run against him a heretic and a loser.
Trump has strongly hinted that he will launch his 2024 presidential campaign on November 15 in Florida, and he expects to run unopposed by any serious Republican challenger.
Most Republican leaders have balls the size of marbles, and I don’t think any of those cowards will have the courage to challenge him. With the possible exception of Florida governor Ron DeSantis, who embraces Trump’s MAGA platform without prostrating himself before him.
DeSantis is just as racist, obnoxious and homophobic as Trump, but he’s younger, smarter, more eloquent and the natural heir apparent. Trump wants to nip any prospective DeSantis run in the bud and that’s why he’s already warned him not to run.
I don’t know if DeSantis is going to run, but he wouldn’t be much of an improvement over Trump. I hope that a Republican who doesn’t subscribe to Trump’s toxic “America First” platform will run against him.
