Their desperation is showing!
The establishment propaganda outlets will publish anything they can to put a dent in the growing popularity of Trump and his America First ideology, especially voters from all walks of life flee from the Democrat Party.
The lies peddled by New York Times and their pool of unnamed sources have always been apparent and a deliberate act to prevent Trump and his Republican base from gaining any traction amongst their readers.
However, it turns out the New York Times doesn’t have many readers anyway.
So according to their unnamed sources, the NYT is now claiming Former President Donald Trump is reportedly bashing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in private as a potential 2024 primary opponent, calling him a “dull personality” with no chance of winning.
As polls continue to put Ron DeSantis in the top spot for the 2024 nomination without Donald Trump on the ballot, “sources” confirmed that the Trump has been privately trashing the popular Florida governor.
What a joke.
The source noted that Trump does not consider the Florida governor a serious threat in 2024, asserting he “has no personal charisma and has a dull personality.”
Another source argued that the former president’s dissatisfaction with DeSantis stems from the fact that the governor “won’t say he won’t run [in 2024].”
Trump reportedly said, “What’s the big deal? Why won’t he just say he’s not going to run against me?”
The source added that DeSantis would need the former president’s endorsement to secure the 2024 nomination.
While it’s true Ron DeSantis has definitely appropriated some of Trump’s signature rhetorical style, especially during public speeches and interactions with the press, it likely makes little different to the Former President.
The man who dug America out of the hole Obama buried us in sits comfortably atop each and every poll of Republican voters. He consistently maintains a 20+ point lead over every other potential GOP candidate.
In fact, Trump has extoled the virtues of DeSantis’ leadership in Florida and even publicly considered him as a possible Vice President pick.
Last week, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times reported that Trump has expressed frustration to several aides about the lack of deference from DeSantis over the 2024 primary.
Trump could always decide not to run but every indication is he will. And once again he’s moving to set the terms of engagement with his potential rivals while those rivals are mostly averting their gazes and hoping he goes away.

Speaking on a podcast last week, DeSantis said that reports of a feud between him and Trump are a media creation.
“I think this is what the media does and you cannot fall for the bait. You know what they’re trying to do, so just don’t take it. Just keep on keeping on. We need everybody united for a big red wave in 2022. We’ve gotta fight the left, and not only fight, but beat the left. And that’s what we’re doing in Florida.”
Trump only once hinted at possible dissatisfaction with DeSantis during an interview with OAN in which he called Republican politicians “gutless” for refusing to admit to being vaccinated against the coronavirus.
However, Trump could’ve been referring to a number of Republicans. Plus, he’s no stranger to calling out Republicans by name.
Don’t fall for it…
