A few notable figures have recently plugged Ron DeSantis as a possible 2024 contender. Others have suggested the popular and successful Florida Republican should run alongside Donald Trump.
Well, the 45th president has yet to announce his future plans. But, when asked if he would take on DeSantis as a running mate, this is what he said.
While there have been wide-ranging reports on their relationship, former President Donald Trump teased Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis as a “good” 2024 running mate.
“I think Ron would be good,” Trump said Saturday at a “History Tour” stop with Bill O’Reilly in Sunrise, Florida.
During a stop on his tour with Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump talked about possibly running with Ron DeSantis.
The 45th president said, “Ron would be good.” He further discussed the possibility during an interview.
He praised DeSantis’ record and talked about his long history working with the man. Trump endorsed DeSantis while running for governor, helping him clinch the election.
DeSantis is the only other top contender for the 2024 GOP nomination. In most polls over the last year, DeSantis is the closest rival to Trump.
In a few recent polls, DeSantis actually beat Trump by a few points.
DeSantis has received backlash from the radical left, thanks to his strong conservative agenda. He has been so successful turning Florida red, that the DNCC won’t even put money into this year’s elections in the state.
Americans are flocking to Florida to relocate from blue states. DeSantis, for his part, has not discussed a possible 2024 run.
He is running for re-election as governor of the state this year. But in two years… who knows?
