Don Warns Ron: Stay Out of 2024, ‘Not Doing Well Against Me in the Polls’

  |   By Polling+ Staff

Former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump hit TRUTH Social on Monday to issue a warning to fellow Republican and rumored 2024 candidate Ron DeSantis: don’t run.

Trump’s post on TRUTH:

“Ron DeSantis is a young man who is not doing well against me in the polls, to put it mildly. I believe that if he decides to run for President, which will only hurt and somewhat divide the Republican Party, he will lose the cherished and massive MAGA vote, and never be able to successfully run for office again. If he remains Governor, which is what Florida voters assumed, it would be a whole different story….JUST SAYIN’ – But who knows?”

From The Washington Examiner:

Although Trump has been pegged consistently as the leader heading into the crowded GOP primary, he has periodically taken shots at DeSantis, who is now polling in second place in a hypothetical GOP field, per the latest RealClearPolitics aggregate.

DeSantis has barnstormed multiple early states, touting Florida as a blueprint for the country writ large. He has been coy about his presidential aspirations and indicated that an announcement could come at some point after the Florida state legislature concludes its session in May.

So far, DeSantis has visited or plans to stop in Iowa, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee, Michigan, Ohio, New Hampshire, Utah, Texas, and Israel, among other locations.

Trump’s campaign recently cut an ad bashing his potential Florida foe and has reportedly sought to lure donors away from him.
