Former President Donald Trump say he is not sure that GOP heavyweight Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will run for president in 2024, but if he does, Trump believes he will win.
“I don’t know if Ron is running, and I don’t ask him,” Trump told the New Yorker magazine in an interview . “It’s his prerogative. I think I would win.”
The former president and de-facto leader of the Republican party has hinted repeatedly about his intention to run in 2024.
He told the magazine that he was “very close to making a decision.” Some inside the GOP believe Trump may officially announce his bid after the midterm elections, during which Republicans are expected to win back a majority in the House and possibly the Senate.
Trump endorsed DeSantis during his 2018 bid, which he narrowly won. He told the magazine that he and the Florida leader have a “very good relationship.”
DeSantis has not ruled out a potential presidential bid and often declines to comment on his future political ambitions. For the moment, he says, he is focused on his job as governor and winning reelection this cycle.
Speculation continues that there may eventually be a showdown between Trump and DeSantis for leadership of the Republican party.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today.

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
