Donald Trump lashes out at Ron DeSantis, who is emerging as the favorite of conservative media for the 2024 presidential elections

The ex-president Donald Trump lashed out at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, accusing him of being disloyal, after the southern politician gained support among the conservative media as a possible electoral candidate for the 2024 presidential elections.

The former Republican president assured that his support was vital for DeSantis’s victory in the 2018 local government elections and that the governor is being disloyal by insinuating that he may run as a rival for the Republican Party’s presidential candidacy, he said in a release.

Although Trump has not explicitly confirmed that he will run for president in 2024, he said last week that “very likely” he will and will hold an event at his Florida residence on November 15 where he will give a “special announcement.”as confirmed.

When DeSantis is asked if he will run as a candidate, Trump writes, he replies that he is not thinking about the future. “If we are talking about loyalty or class, that is not really the best answer,” the statement stressed.

The American tycoon also stated that it was he who saved DeSantis’s gubernatorial campaign with his support and accused the conservative media – once his great defenders – of carrying out an “assault” against him by supporting the governor of Florida as a candidate.

“This is the same as 2015 or 2016, when Fox News fought me until I won, and after that they (changed and) couldn’t be nicer to me,” Trump said.

Some of the main conservative media in the US -Fox News, the Wall Street Journal or The New York Post- began yesterday to turn their backs on the former president, after the Republicans did not obtain the victory they expected in the term elections. medium.

And, as Trump loses popularity, DeSantis, who was re-elected as governor on Tuesday, is gaining favor in conservative circles. Fox News, Trump’s favorite outlet for years, published an opinion piece yesterday titled “Ron DeSantis is the new leader of the Republican Party.”

DeSantis comfortably won reelection for governor of Florida, a victory that, according to experts, positions him as a presidential candidate.

The partial results of Tuesday’s elections have been far from assuming the “red wave” (the Republican color) that some predicted for Congress. Although the vote count made little progress on Wednesday, in the case of the Lower House, the projections of the main US media give the Republicans 207 of the 218 seats they need to control it.

The Democrats, for their part, have 184 seats, and more than 40 are yet to be decided. Regarding the Senate, the situation is much less clear: of the 100 seats, the Democrats have 48 secured and the Republicans, 49.
