Trump Calls DeSantis A What?

Former President Donald Trump recently spoke about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who has become a formidable threat to the former President’s potential plans for 2024 according to many polls.

In an interview with New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who is currently writing a new book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America” Haberman claims that Trump took full credit for DeSantis’success in winning the GOP gubernatorial nomination in 2018.

According to Haberman, Trump also called DeSantis “fat,” “phony,” and “whiny” when Haberman asked him to describe the governor. The extent to which Trump indeed shared these remarks about DeSantis, which only appear in the book and not the Atlantic article is unclear.

These comments appear to also have been made during a time when DeSantis had managed to raise more money than both President Joe Biden and Donald Trump. The impressive fundraising efforts of DeSantis have helped him be in the top 20 potential presidential contenders. For his reelection campaign, DeSantis has raised $177.4 million, which is a national record for a gubernatorial campaign.

According to a USA Today and Suffolk University poll, DeSantis is currently leading in Florida by 8 points, in a hypothetical match between him and the former President.

The fundraising efforts and high polling numbers have led to many speculations about DeSantis potentially preparing for a 2024 presidential bid.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, has widely criticized DeSantis over his policies and has even said that people living in Florida are having their freedom attached. He also invited Florida residents to move to California.

So far, neither DeSantis not Trump have announced a presidential bid for 2024.

      • he sure sounds like a typical commie dem. the two best in the nation? He needs an education. This article is full of Sh** The ATlantic and Haberman of the NYT? BOTH are LIARS and haters. BAD BAD BAD So called Journalism. More like inquirer quality

    • But. (and there’s always a but), their ain’t a democrat team alive that can beat a TRUMP/DESANTIS TICKET…
      HONESTLY, THAT IS…

    • Since the commie left has filled the country with enough Fentanyl to kill everyone in the country seven times over, watch out for those skittles and gummy bears that are meant to kill children, not F-heads. Unless you just have to grab a handful, no one will stop you. Don’t suggest it, though; not a good way to die. But, alas, you could GAS. I hope no one you care about chokes to death on their vomit. The Chinese present that keeps on giving, and Biden ( Obama) wants more and more and more and more and more and more and more..until we are all dead.

  1. newsome is brain dead. everyone is moving out of california to anywhere else. he has destroyed the state better than biden has ruined america. democrats destroy really well. anyone moving out of florida, it sure would not be california.

  2. Very doubtful that Trump made such a comment. DeSantis has said on many occasions that he and Trump have a great relationship. Trump is the Republican front runner and leading the field by many points. DeSantis has made it very clear in many interviews, that he is not be running ‘24. DeSantis will be a great President in ‘28.

    • Trump rips into ‘fat,’ ‘phony,’ ‘whiny’ DeSantis as he aims to clear 2024 GOP field and Ron DeSantis called Trump is a MORON, Unfit For Office.
      I love it!
      And both think they are god’s gift to America. I love to see the both debate each other live. I can just see Trump circling and giving DeSantis an evil eye and DeSantis giving Trump the finger.
      I also would not be surprised if Ron DeSantis declaring him self winner of the Florida Governor race even if he loses!
      America loves MAGA = “Make America Gullible Again”

      • Allen:
        your comments just dhow how really ignorant and stupid you are.

        Keep up the good work for the Dem needs more fools like. Inflation up, gas up, taxes up, immigration up, crime up, looks like a winning ticket for the Dem-o-rats.

        • In my neighborhood food prices have been coming down and gas prices at BJ’s was $2.99 a gallon last week. Mail-in ballots have been receive and voting has started. A new poll came in with Ron DeSantis at 47% and Charlie Crist at 53% if this trend continues we will be celebrating a major victory in Florida. Change is coming for the better. WOMEN WILL REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER..

  3. While I wish for a Trump / DeSantis (vp) ticket for 2024, Trump should be very careful of his name calling rhetoric on DeSantis. Else, GOP voters will flip on him and vote for DeSantis as nominee for POTUS. Trump needs DeSantis on his side if he truly wants another term as president. And preferably as VP! Then after 4 years, we could have DeSantis as POTUS for 8 years! Exactly what this country needs.

  4. AMERICA’S GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS SHOULD WAIT TILL 2028 SO THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN STICK A LIGHTING ROD UP THAT SCNILE IDIOT ASS JOE BLOW BIDEN. AND ALL YOU PEOPLE SHOULD STOP WATCHING ALL THOSE MARXISTS DEMOCRATS SO CALLED NEWS MEDIA’S, THEIR ALL TRASH. START WATCHING NEWSMAX OR SOME OF FOX’S SHOWS.

  5. Trump is a divisive element and would not win in 2024. It is time for him to retire and let a more moderate candidate actually capable of winning to emerge as the Republican candidate. It’s time that Republicans recognize issues such as (1) climate change (2) the income and wealth disparity and (3) the need to provide some legal status to those millions currently being called “undocumented”! Middle America supports dealing with them and the party needs to respond.

  6. CFP writer actually trusts this source : Maggie Haberman, who is a New York Times journalist, who is also pushing her new hate Trump book. Exactly what part of the claims that this radical left wing journalist who obviously has Trump Derangement Syndrome and mental illness should we believe anything that she says!!

    Some of these people posting just shows how ignorant they are, if they believe the claims of this NYT’s journalist.

  7. I believe that President Trump should pick Desantis, as his running mate, Show him how things can be done, Then Desantis could run in 4 years, and 4 more then this Great Country could be a SOLID Nation for 12 years and by that time really curb our DEBT. We still have a long way to go for Justice integrity, voting integrity.
