President Trump really hasn’t given any hint that Ron DeSantis will be his VP.
In Trump’s latest post on Truth Social, it appears the 45th president has a disagreement with the Florida Governor.
In his latest Truth Social post, Trump shared a recent news article that revealed DeSantis is endorsing Joe O’Dea for Colorado’s Senate.
Trump captioned the article with the phrase “A Big Mistake”.

The Washington Examiner had the details to add:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is recording a robocall for underdog Senate contender Joe O’Dea, a boost for the Colorado Republican after former President Donald Trump urged grassroots conservatives to abandon his campaign.
“Hello this is Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. America needs strong leadership and desperately. That’s why I’m endorsing Joe O’Dea for U.S. Senate. Colorado, please vote for Joe O’Dea,” DeSantis says in the robocall, a recording of which was provided to the Washington Examiner on Sunday by the O’Dea campaign. “I’ve watched Joe from a distance. And I’m impressed.”
In endorsing O’Dea, DeSantis is charting a course separate from Trump in the midterm elections and stoking speculation the two Republican heavyweights are on a collision course in the upcoming 2024 GOP presidential primary. Just days earlier, the former president lashed out at O’Dea, calling him a “RINO,” which stands for “Republican in Name Only,” and criticizing him for speaking openly about their disagreements.
Running in a blue state that rarely elects Republicans statewide and trailing Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) in public opinion polls despite a favorable political environment, O’Dea’s strategy of distancing himself from Trump and taking centrist positions on certain issues is sensible. Bennet led O’Dea 49.5% to 42% in the RealClearPolitics average and has topped his Republican challenger in all six of the most recent surveys.

Here’s what the New York Post had to report:
President Donald Trump lashed out at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the weekend over DeSantis’ support for Colorado GOP Senate candidate Joe O’Dea — who has said he would actively campaign against the 45th president if he runs again in 2024.
“A BIG MISTAKE!,” Trump wrote of the Florida governor’s endorsement on his Truth Social platform Sunday.
That barb came a week after Trump called O’Dea “stupid” in response to the Senate hopeful saying a 2024 rematch between the former and current presidents would “tear this country apart.”
“DeSantis, Scott, Pompeo or Haley would be better choices,” O’Dea said in a statement, referring to the Florida governor, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former South Carolina governor and US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
“These elections should be focused on Joe Biden’s failures — supercharged inflation, a broken border, rampant crime, a war on American energy — not a rehash of 2020,” O’Dea added. “America needs to move forward.”
Is DeSantis a friend or foe?
