Trump Comments On DeSantis Decision

On January 21, 2024, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis suspended his campaign and endorsed former President Donald Trump.

“It’s clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance,” DeSantis said in the straight-to-camera video, looking more relaxed than ever.

“If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome — more campaign stops, more interviews — I would do it,” DeSantis said. “But I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources if we don’t have a clear path to victory. Accordingly, I am today suspending my campaign.”

“They watched his presidency get stymied by relentless resistance and they see Democrats using lawfare to this day to attack him. While I have had disagreements with Donald Trump, such as on the coronavirus pandemic and his elevation of Anthony Fauci, Trump is superior to the current incumbent, Joe Biden,” DeSantis said. “That is clear. I signed a pledge to support the Republican nominee and I will honor that pledge. He has my endorsement because we can’t go back to the old Republican guard of yesteryear — a repackaged form of warmed-over corporatism — that Nikki Haley represents. The days of putting Americans last, of kowtowing to large corporations, of caving to woke ideology, are over.”

After the announcement, the Trump campaign released a statement saying they were “honored by the endorsement from Governor Ron DeSantis and so many other former Presidential candidates.”

“Nikki Haley is the candidate of the globalists and Democrats who will do everything to stop the America First Movement,” the statement said. Adding that Healy “represents the views of Democrats more than the views of Republicans.”

 

Since entering the race, former President Trump has poked fun at the Florida Governor by calling him Ron “deSanctimonious.” However, after the endorsement, he gave DeSantis some good news…he’s retiring the phrase.

In other words they are uniting and the former President is burying the hatchet.
