There is very little doubt that Donald Trump will be running for the presidency again in 2024. He himself has just about admitted as much, and his constant tweaking of the Republican message within the media seems to indicate that he is, without a doubt, the top dog in the GOP still.
But there are other who are likely to run against him in the primary race, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has spent a great deal of the last year working up his national profile.
Despite DeSantis’ efforts, The Don doesn’t appear concerned.
The conservative governor saw his popularity surge among Republican voters in his state and around the nation over the past year and a half, thanks in large part to his combative push back against COVID-19 restrictions amid the pandemic.
DeSantis, who faces a potentially challenging reelection next year, continues to spark more 2024 speculation with his political trips outside of the Sunshine State. He was in western New York state on Tuesday, keynoting a fundraiser as he continues to haul in big bucks as he gears up for his 2022 reelection campaign.Trending:
“I don’t think I will face him,” Trump said in the interview when asked about possibly facing DeSantis in a 2024 GOP presidential nomination showdown. “I think most people would drop out, I think he would drop out.”
But Trump touted that “if I faced him, I’d beat him like I would beat everyone else.”
DeSantis has played coy when asked about his 2024 plans, but several sources near the Governor has suggested that a run for the White House has been a topic of serious discussion.
