Trump World is debuting an interesting strategy in the lead up to 2024:
“Let’s bash and lie about the most popular Republican governor!”
I’m sure that will be a winning strategy.

I'm not sure it's a good idea....
DO NOT LIKE
Plenty of bad guys. and bad things. That should be worth his attention.
How about nuc war or recession or covid corruption and excess deaths
I think these personal attacks show a weak man.
I think it sucks. Cruz bashing Trump for the Chicago rally riot is what turned me off him. Reagan always said not to speak ill of fellow republicans. Trump better knock that trash talk off yesterday!
Trump went after Jeb Bush and Yeb has never recovered..
Does DeSantis really want to jump in? Or Does he want to wait until 2028?
Time will tell.
It’s weird, and I must confess I don’t understand it.
Maybe when 2024 rolls around it will make more sense.
let ron be ron and trump be trump... who will be the nominee?
not nikki haley, that’s for sure.
“I’m sure that will be a winning strategy.”
Trump’s strategy of “getting personal” has worked pretty well against every other political opponent he’s faced so far.
Supporters is one thing but Trump himself seems to be going after DeSantis a lot.
I dont like to post that stuff but I’m sure freepers will have seen it
He needs to be fought more than the Democrats.
Trump talked that way about, and to, gop opponents in 2016. And Jebbie was an easy target, being an NWO fellow. But I agree he needs to tone it down until the primaries.
I don’t like it but Trump sees DeSantis as an adversary in the upcoming campaign. To get the nomination his biggest threat would be DeSantis.Trump knows you have to stay on offense. We may not like it but Trump wants to be President and Ron may be his first obstacle.
Well, there’s the old Reagan rule, which I would apply to this situation, but I find it difficult to apply to everyone that has an R next to their names, since I don’t believe they are really Republicans. Mike Hogan and Nikki Haley come to mind since they are both about to run for president.
“Thou shall not violate the 11th commandment” - Ronald Reagan.
Its all part of the game. Notice he told N.H. to go for it (easy on the gal, tough with the guy(s)).
I sure wish Trump would cease and desist. Trump and DeSantis are on the same side! Mr. Trump’s unwarranted and ever-increasing attacks on a fellow Republican whose actions as Florida’s governor have indisputably proven his conservative bona-fides only makes Donald Trump look small.
You are acting like Jeb Bush was going anywhere before that.
I wish that the Republicans would have worked together over the past two years to restore election integrity, but they said to get over it, or they were glad Trump had it stolen from him. Now no one can win the General.
Trump won in 2020 and it was stolen from him. He deserves a do-over and should win in 2024. I expect DeSantis to step back and make it clear that he wants Trump to win the presidency (again) in 2024. But, if DeSantis wants to get in the ring, he should expect to be punched.
