Mike Pence still claims his relationship with Donald Trump is strong.
The truth is far different.
And Donald Trump dropped a major hint about replacing Mike Pence with this big name Republican.
Fox Business Channel host Maria Bartiromo pressed Donald Trump about whether or not Trump would select Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate should Trump win the 2024 GOP nomination.
“Well, he’s a friend of mine. I endorsed Ron. And after I endorsed him, he took off like a rocket ship,” Trump explained. “He’s done a great job as Governor.”
Trump referred to his 2018 endorsement of DeSantis when DeSantis lagged in the polls in a crowded GOP primary.
Thanks to Trump’s endorsement, DeSantis won the GOP nomination for Governor of Florida and then the General Election.
Trump told Bartiromo that he heard lots of chatter about picking DeSantis as his running mate and that Trump considered DeSantis a friend.
“A lot of people like that – I’m just saying what I read and what you read, they love that ticket,” Trump added. “But certainly, Ron would be considered. He’s a great guy.”
What stuck out to anyone who watched the interview was Trump acted like the partnership between him and Pence was over.
Trump never even entertained the idea that Pence would still serve as his running mate should Trump win the 2024 GOP nomination for President.
Mike Pence just delivered a speech in South Carolina where he still referred to the Trump administration as “we” and praised his partnership with Donald Trump.
But it does not appear that Donald Trump still considers that relationship a viable partnership.
