Donald Trump has a history of making enemies out of the Left.
And the so-called “mainstream” media has never portrayed the former President in the best light.
But Donald Trump is now begging for attention with his latest made up attacks on Ron DeSantis.
Former President Donald Trump has gone all-in on his potential 2024 rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Governor DeSantis has been in this role since 2019.
He has managed a state hit hard by Hurricane Ian back in 2022.
He has driven initiatives around Right to Work and education freedom.
And he has been a lightning rod for conservatives in Florida – and across the country – tackling hot button issues, like making the Sunshine State a “woke” free zone.
Critics of Governor DeSantis typically come from the Left and the corporate-controlled media, but Trump has decided to join forces with the left-wing outrage mob.
Trump has been known to mock his opponents, and DeSantis is now in the crosshairs.
And with the 2024 election cycle heating up, Trump is ready to reclaim the mantle.
One of traits of a classic Trump attack is receiving an official nickname, and he’s chosen to dub the Governor, “DeSanctimonious.”
And the former President has also suggested multiple times that DeSantis only won the Governorship because of Trump’s endorsement back in 2018.
At a recent campaign rally, Trump claimed DeSantis begged him for an endorsement: “Sir, if you endorsed me, I’ll win. Please, please, sir, endorse me.”
Trump’s claim is, of course, nothing new.
And in a recent interview, Governor DeSantis admitted he doesn’t know what the “DeSanctimonious” nickname even means.
“I mean you can call me whatever you want, just as long as you also call me a winner,” DeSantis said.
DeSantis, again, has not formally announced any plans for 2024.
Between his ongoing efforts to rebuild the gulf coast after Hurricane Ian, and implementing his education freedom initiatives, he may not announce for months.
With his responsibilities as Governor, he has made the strategic choice to simply ignore Trump.
This strategy has proven beneficial to the DeSantis camp as Trump has tried everything to take over the corporate-controlled media headlines once more.
Hypothetical polls have shown Trump leading DeSantis in what is clearly a two-horse race for the Republican Presidential nomination.
Right now, the rift is perceived as one-sided and a desperate draw for attention for team Trump, and nothing but background noise for team DeSantis.
There is still a lot of time between now and the first Republican primary of the 2024 election cycle, and other candidates are likely to announce.
Besides Trump, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy have officially announced their intentions to run as Republicans.
Many expect others to jump into the ring, including Governor DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
But expect the split between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis to escalate even further in the coming months.
