Lara Trump issues dark warning to DeSantis saying it would be ‘nicer’ for him to stay out of 2024 race

Lara Trump has issued a dark warning to Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, saying he’d “better” stay out of 2024. race for the GOP presidential nomination.

Former President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law appeared on Sky News Australia to promote his upcoming candidacy, which is expected to be announced on Tuesday.

The announcement is likely to be made despite calls from allies for Mr Trump to delay the start of his campaign until December 6. of the second round of the Georgian Senate elections.

“I think he’s smart enough to know that in 2028, it would be great if this whole party, America First, the Maga movement, whatever you want to call it, has his full support,” Mrs. Trump said.

She said the movement could be split if Mr. DeSantis runs in 2024.

“I can tell you that those primaries tend to be very messy and very raw.” We’ve experienced this before. Wouldn’t it be nicer for him, I think he knows that, to wait until 2028,” she added.

Seeing Mr. DeSantis as his biggest challenger in the party, Mr. Trump has tried to sideline him, often mentioning that in 2018 endorsed Mr. DeSantis when he first ran for governor of Florida.

Mr. Trump recently called the governor “Ron DeSanctimonium,” a moniker aimed at ousting him because Mr. DeSantis refused to rule out challenging Mr. Trump for the Republican nomination.

Although the GOP struggled in the midterms, Mr. DeSantis was re-elected in a landslide, unlike many of Mr. Trump’s top endorsements, who lost key races.

After Tuesday’s election, Trump issued a statement calling DeSantis “an average GOP governor with great PR.” He was also outraged that Mr. DeSantis had not said that he would not run for president in 2024.

“I say this with all due respect to Ron DeSantis, he’s never been in the ring with a pugilist like Donald Trump,” Corey Lewandowski, a 2016 Trump adviser, told the AP.

But Matt Caldwell, a DeSantis ally, told the news outlet that “if you want to run for president, you’ve got to make it when it comes out.”

Brian Ballard, a Florida lobbyist and Mr. DeSantis’ inaugural chairman, told the AP that “the coalitions he built, the bridges he built, constituencies that never touched Republicans before have now embraced Republicans and Republicanism in the form of the DeSantis administration.” .

“He’s certainly a leader and someone who I think has demonstrated the type of coalition building that we need to take back the White House,” he added.

Conservative radio host Erik Erikson said many of his listeners favor DeSantis.

“They love Trump, they thank him, they wish him well, and they’re willing to break up,” he said, referring to the people he invites to his program. “Trump voters like Trump because they like winners who fight. That’s exactly how they perceive DeSantis. The only guy between the two who is a loser is Trump.
