Donald Trump Makes Bold Claim About Ron Desantis’ Potential Presidential Run
It has long been rumored that Donald Trump is making another bid to take the top job in the country in 2024. It is reported this week that its top officials are divided on whether the move makes sense for the divisive politician (via NBC News† But earlier this month news week reported that Trump is the favorite over Joe Biden to win the election according to oddsmakers.
But the potential second termer isn’t the only Republican in the running, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis creating buzz that he too might be throwing his hat in the ring. Politics reports that some Trump donors are instead supporting the younger candidate with large cash flows. But tellingly, news week notes that in polls, when DeSantis is compared to Trump, the former president is the favorite to receive the GOP nomination.
While neither Republican has officially stated that he will participate, it seems their once cordial relationship could evaporate. Remember, Trump once supported DeSantis when the last politician ran for governor.
But with conservatives potentially going head to head in 2024, Trump is making a bold — but unsurprising — claim about how he sees things happening at election time.
We are not sure if the two politicians will agree
Donald Trump told The New Yorker that he and Ron DeSantis have a “very good relationship”. But that view — which may or may not be shared by DeSantis himself — hasn’t stopped the former president from stating that he believes he will win the 2024 election if he goes up against his former protégé.
Curiously, however, Trump also claimed in the interview with The New Yorker that he was in the dark about the intentions of his potential opponent during campaign time. “I don’t know if Ron is running, nor am I asking him,” Trump told the outlet, adding confidently, “I think I would win.”
So when will we know if Trump and DeSantis are officially going head to head for the Republican nomination? CNN reports sources saying Trump may soon reveal his intentions, so stay tuned!
