Things are already getting ugly when Trump trashes Gov. Ron DeSantis because the Florida governor won’t drop out of the 2024 presidential race.
Trump can’t handle Ron DeSantis not kissing his ring
Donald Trump privately trashed Ron DeSantis as an ungrateful man with a “boring personality” and no realistic chance of beating him in a potential 2024 showdown, according to sources who recently spoke to the former president about becoming Florida governor .
A second source who spoke to Trump about DeSantis said the reason the former president is upset with the popular governor is “that Ron DeSantis isn’t going to say he’s not going to run [in 2024]. … The others have said quite clearly that they will not challenge him.”
The Republican Party has become so dysfunctional that a failed former president, blown out on his bid for re-election, feels entitled to his party’s nomination in 2024 and is angry at a front-runner for that nomination for not bouncing on him .
Trump is afraid of free and fair elections
People forget that Trump rigged the 2020 Republican primary to keep any competition out long before he attempted to reverse his election loss to Joe Biden.
A constant theme of Trump’s presence on the national political stage is his fear of fair elections.
Trump fears giving Republican voters a choice in the primary while trying to rig the 2024 election to return to the White House.
While obsessing over infighting among Democrats, the media refuses to acknowledge that the Trump cult, formerly known as the Republican Party, is in disarray.
