Former President Trump has been on the attack again, this time targeting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. However, some insiders are suggesting that there may be more to this than meets the eye. According to sources close to the former president, he is considering a deal with DeSantis, where the Florida Governor would be his VP candidate in the 2024 presidential election.

Trump supporters have claimed that DeSantis could help to boost Trump’s popularity among young Republicans, creating a dream team that President Joe Biden can only dream of. In addition to this, DeSantis would be able to bring in a lot of funding for the campaign, which is always welcome.
Despite speculation that DeSantis will announce his White House bid this summer, sources suggest that he is considering waiting until 2028, once Trump is out of the picture. This would give him time to raise money and test the waters, but more importantly, it would give him the chance to run after Trump has won or lost the 2024 election.
It’s worth noting that Trump has previously denied rumors of a partnership with DeSantis, saying that it would be unlikely. However, he has since expressed disappointment in the governor, claiming that he is a “loyal person” who should be more supportive of his former boss.
A recent poll found that 58% of Republican primary voters would support Trump in 2024, while only 21% would support DeSantis. However, this could all change if the two were to join forces, creating a powerful ticket that could be hard to beat.
Regardless of what happens, it’s clear that Trump is not ready to relinquish his hold on the Republican Party just yet. With DeSantis waiting in the wings, it remains to be seen if the former President will be able to hold onto his power or if a new conservative star will rise to take his place. One thing is for sure, though: the 2024 election is shaping up to be a fascinating one.
