Mainstream media operatives are desperate to drive a wedge between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, two of the Republican Party’s heaviest hitters.
After all, holding water for the vulnerable Democrat Party is priority number one for media liberals as voters gear up to trounce the ‘progressive’ party in November.
The America First platform Trump established as a new brand of Republicanism has risen in popularity thanks in part due to Joe Biden’s horrendous policies, all of which have resulted in undue tragedy both at home and abroad.
Ron DeSantis governs his state of Florida with Trump’s philosophy in mind — and the results speak for themselves.
As conversations and rumors surrounding 2024 heat up, Trump and DeSantis have been asked on multiple occasions about their plans to trounce the Biden regime. It’s almost a guarantee that Former President Trump will seek a rematch against Biden – if he’s still upright in 2024 – but DeSantis is a little harder to read.
Since then, mainstream media operatives have attempted to pit Trump against DeSantis and vice versa for reasons obvious to anyone paying attention; however, the feud (or what liberals hoped was a feud) is officially over thanks to one statement by the Former President.
Donald Trump and his team are beginning to narrow down possible picks for Vice President if he decides to run.
The obvious choice, or at least who many supporters are rooting for, is Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis.
The Former President sat down for an interview with Newsmax, a leading conservative publication, and was asked that exact question.
On Thursday, Newsmax released an interview with Former President Donald Trump in which he was asked if a Trump/DeSantis ticket was in the cards.
Trump responded in kind, saying, “Well, I get along with him,” ending the contrived feud for good.

Let’s be clear, Donald Trump and his popularity with more than half of the country – especially in Florida – was a clear boost for Ron DeSantis during his successful gubernatorial bid, a fact that Trump isn’t shy to repeat.
Trump is the Republican kingmaker, no doubt about it. An endorsement from the Former President almost guarantees an election victory, especially if your opponent is a RINO, the most undesirable conservative in the game.
During the interview, Trump touted the success of his endorsements, including Illinois state Sen. Darren Bailey and Rep. Mary Miller’s victories in Wednesday’s Republican primaries for governor and Congress.
Meanwhile, DeSantis’s popularity among registered Republican voters continues to climb. A recent poll showed about 45% would vote for Trump compared to 36% who leaned toward DeSantis, the closest any challenger has ever gotten to the Former President in a GOP primary poll.
