The media is trying to start a fight between Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump.
But Donald Trump ended it in surprising fashion.
And Donald Trump admitted something about Ron DeSantis that no one expected to hear.
Donald Trump recently said politicians who wouldn’t admit that they took the COVID booster shot were gutless.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis attacked Dr. Fauci for pushing lockdowns back in March 2020.
That led to reporters speculating that DeSantis and Trump were drawing the battle lines for an eventual 2024 GOP Presidential Primary showdown.
Media outlets speculated that Trump put down DeSantis in private, and also wondered why DeSantis would not pledge to run in 2024 if Trump declared his candidacy.
In a recent podcast interview, DeSantis said any talk of a feud between him and Trump was manufactured by the media.
And during an interview with Sean Hannity, Donald Trump addressed these stories.
“Well, he is right,” Trump said when Hannity asked if Ron DeSantis was correct that any beef between the two was media fiction.
“I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them. They were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly,” Trump added.
Trump praised the job DeSantis did as Governor of Florida, calling him a friend and debunking the media fake news about the two feuding.
“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump stated. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”
