President Trump has just fired off another Truth Social post targeting Governor Ron DeSantis.
Trump in a new Truth Social post wrote “The real Ron is a RINO GLOBALIST, who closed quickly down Florida and even its beaches.”
Trump would continue Ron “Loved the Vaccines and wasted big money on “Testing.” How quickly people forget!”

Trump was responding to a user on Truth Social who uploaded a poll which showed him ahead of DeSantis.
The Hill had these details to add:
President Trump accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) of being a “RINO GLOBALIST” on Wednesday, continuing his attacks on the potential 2024 contender widely viewed as his biggest competition for the Republican nomination.
“The real Ron is a RINO GLOBALIST, who closed quickly down Florida and even its beaches,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social. “Loved the Vaccines and wasted big money on ‘Testing.’ How quickly people forget!”
RINO, one of Trump’s favorite jabs for his fellow Republicans, stands for “Republican in Name Only.”
Trump has repeatedly attacked DeSantis as he continues to ramp up his own 2024 campaign, which he launched just one week after the midterm elections in November.
In his latest series of jabs at the Florida governor, Trump accused DeSantis on Saturday of “trying to rewrite history” on his COVID-19 response and claimed it would be “a great act of disloyalty” for DeSantis to launch his own presidential bid.
“If he runs, that’s fine. I’m way up in the polls. He’s going to have to do what he wants to do, but he may run,” Trump said following a campaign swing through New Hampshire and South Carolina over the weekend. “I do think it would be a great act of disloyalty because, you know, I got him in. He had no chance. His political life was over.”
This isn’t the first jab Trump has thrown at DeSantis in the last few days, previously Trump stated if DeSantis ran against him it would be disloyal.
Trump on Desantis: “Ron would’ve not been governor if it wasn’t for me. Number 1, he wouldn’t have gotten the nomination, and number 2 – he wouldn’t have beaten his Democrat opponent. So then when I hear he might run, I consider that very disloyal.” pic.twitter.com/11r2k3b6z0

The main problem Trump has with DeSantis is he has refused to tell the public on whether he will run or not.
If DeSantis was truly a Trump loyalist he would address the press and tell them he’s not running and he will be voting for Trump in 2024.
