IT BEGINS: DeSantis, Trump Begin Trading Insults Ahead of ’24 Announcements

For many American political observers, there is little mystery as to the makeup of the coming GOP primaries in 2024, as former President and presumptive nominee Donald Trump is almost certainly going to find himself in the mix once again.

But he’s not the only one, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis taking all the necessary steps to prepare a campaign of his own, albeit much more quietly and with a great deal less fanfare.

Trump has privately complained about DeSantis’ apparent aspirations before, but now it appears as if the two will be doing battle in public from here on out.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rushed to defend Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis after former President Donald Trump dubbed the Republican “Ron DeSanctimonious” at a rally Saturday evening.

“Not tired of winning. @GovRonDeSantis you’ve proven conservative policies work. Florida is better for it. Vote for @GovRonDeSantis,” Pompeo tweeted Saturday evening.

Trump had torched DeSantis earlier in the Keystone State.

The comment came as Trump held a rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania on Saturday ahead of Tuesday’s Election Day.

“We’re winning big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump told the crowd before listing other Republicans who could potentially challenge him in 2024.

“There it is, Trump at 71%, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%,” Trump told the crowd while reading approval numbers of various Republicans.

Neither Trump nor DeSantis has made any official announcement as of yet, but it is believed that the former President could be ready to make his run official as early as next week.
