TALLAHASSEE (FCV) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) responded to questions regarding a left-wing reported rift brewing between himself and former President Donald Trump (R) in an interview with Fox News Digital, calling the reports, “total bunk.”
DeSantis did not emphatically rule out running against Trump in a 2024 primary. However, he repeatedly praised Trump in the interview, calling him, “a friend of mine,” and someone who “appreciates the job that we’ve done.”
Governor DeSantis, who is himself running for a second term this year, invoked Trump’s praise of his governance throughout the pandemic several times.
The Governor also attacked the so-called “sources close to Trump,” that have been bolstering these media reports of a “rift” between the Florida Governor and the former President.
DeSantis suggested these sources may not be authentic and even went so far as to say that they may be democratic operatives attempting to stoke division throughout the GOP.
Hoping to win another term as Governor, DeSantis is pushing back against left-wing accusations in an effort to avoid divisive rhetoric between supporters of both himself and Trump, an extremely popular conservative figure who could run again in 2024.
However, according to a recent Florida Chamber statewide poll, DeSantis seems to be weathering the storm with a vast majority of Florida Republicans and independents supporting the governor for his 2022 re-election.
