(FiveNation.com)- There has been widespread speculation that Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is preparing to join former President Donald Trump in his rumored bid to take back the White House in 2024, but DeSantis said recently that he hasn’t had a conversation with the former president about it.
Given former President Trump’s major disagreement with former Vice President Mike Pence about the results of the last election, and Pence’s decision to certify the electoral college votes for President Joe Biden, it seems unlikely that the two will join forces again to take the White House in the future.
Governor Ron DeSantis, however, is a legislator for Trump’s home state of Florida, and is well known for his Trump-esque attitude and staunch defense of freedom in the face of far-left radicalism and COVID tyranny.
During an interview with Fox News On Sunday, DeSantis said that he hasn’t had any discussion with anybody about anything other than what he is doing for the people of Florida right now.
“I have a great state, a big state,” DeSantis said, adding that he has a lot on his plate.
“We take it one day at a time and try to achieve things” for his state, he continues.
DeSantis could be telling the truth, but he may also be considering his own run for president. During the Trump administration, the Florida governor was considered a contender for president after Trump left office, which many believed would be in 2024.
Former President Trump, however, told Fox News recently that there are “numerous people” he believes would be great for vice president, and that if he does decide to run in 2025, he would “certainly consider Ron.”
Trump added that he was one of the first people to endorse Ron, that he knows him very well and believes he’s a great guy.
So while there is nothing solid on the table right now, it doesn’t mean it won’t happen. President Trump hasn’t technically even entered the race yet, but as soon as he does, we could hear more about this rumored partnership.
Do you think Governor DeSantis would be a better option than Mike Pence?
