Florida Gov Ron DeSantis is increasingly preparing for an all-out war with his likely rival for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, disgraced former President Trump, Vanity Fair reports.
A source tells VF’s Gabe Sherman that the diminutive autocrat “calls him a TV personality and a moron who has no business running for president,” and that “the only way to beat Trump is to attack him head-on. He says he would turn to Trump during a debate and say, ‘Why didn’t you fire Fauci? You said you would build the wall, but there is no wall. Why is that?'” which we will remark is impressive because that’s exactly what the fuck we’ve been saying a challenger should say.
The Donald for his part is building toward a public attack on the Ronald, calling him “overrated, disloyal, and a know-nothing,” with Sherman’s reporting correctly crediting Trump for helping the then middle-management GOP Congressman DeSantis over the finish line in the tight 2018 race.
