Trump Set To Bring On DeSantis As ’24 Running Mate?

The question of who will be on the ticket with President Trump for the 2024 run has been the most asked question in recent times, but now it seems we are close to finding that answer. We all know at this point that it surely won’t be Pence. The former vice President is reportedly not in the good books of President Trump and for obvious reasons.

Although Former President Donald Trump has still not officially said whether he will run for president for the third time in 2024, but he continues to drop hints that he will. And now, he is even teasing the name of the man he will want on the ticket with him.

In a recent interview with Finnerty, the reporter didn’t just ask Trump if he planned on running, he appeared to assume that he will by then asking if he had considered rising GOP star and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a running mate.

“Well, I get along with him,” Trump said before going on to take credit for DeSantis’ rise: “I was very responsible for his success because I endorsed him and he went up like a rocket ship.”

Trump has raised many great republicans of late and DeSantis is one of those. The Governor of Florida has been a constant torn in Joe Biden’s skin since the 2020 election. There was a point early this year that Ron said he would get a bus and transport all illegal immigrants to DC and leave them there for Biden. He has been a rising star in the republican party, and many expect to see him in the White House come 2024.

In April, a survey found that Trump and DeSantis were tied in terms of several favorable areas, while he surpassed the 45th president in others.

“In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, DeSantis and Trump are even with a 52% approval in the national poll of likely voters. And he surpasses Trump on the disapproval rating with 33% to the former president’s 45%,” the Washington Examiner reported.

“Among those with a ‘very favorable impression’ in the survey, it’s DeSantis over Trump 37%-35%, according to the analysis,” the outlet continued, adding: “But with Republicans, it’s Trump, 83% favorable, to 76% favorable for DeSantis.”

For most of the past year, DeSantis has been viewed as the 2024 GOP presidential heir-apparent if the former president decides he doesn’t want to run again. But Trump has strongly hinted on a number of occasions that he wants another crack at the White House. President Joe Biden has pledged to run again should Trump get into the race.

And the 45th president remains the most preferred GOP candidate, leading DeSantis in every 2024 survey, the Washington Examiner noted. But

 

In a GOP primary though, just Republican voters matter, and in that, they picked Trump over DeSantis 59-23 percent, the survey said.

Earlier this month, Trump said that he has not asked DeSantis if the GOP governor planned to run for the presidential nomination in 2024. But he also said he believes he would win if the two squared off.

“I don’t know if Ron is running, and I don’t ask him,” Trump told The New Yorker in an interview. “It’s his prerogative. I think I would win.”

 

The former president has teased DeSantis as a running mate before, even as he has pushed back on reports that there is tension between the two men.

 

A Trump-Desantis ticket will surely get the Republican party the White House back and should be a great win for the whole America considering how much damage Joe Biden has already done.
