    During an interview that aired on Thursday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show, former President Donald Trump, now a candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, took a shot at his possible rival in the contest, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL).Trump recounted his version of DeSantis seeking his endorsement in the 2018 Florida Republican gubernatorial primary against then-Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.According to the former president, DeSantis begged for the endorsement. Trump also claimed he had to help DeSantis in his run in the general election against then-Tallahassee, FL Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic Party’s nominee.“[R]on DeSantis got elected...

    Former President Donald Trump attacked Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a flurry of social media posts that blast his potential rival as a “RINO GLOBALIST.” In what some skeptics may see as trying extra hard to find an intraparty foil to attack in the run-up to his 2024 election bid, Trump appears to have landed on DeSantis as his desired villain in this professional wrestling-inspired political drama. It started Tuesday evening when Trump posted a short 10-second video of DeSantis from roughly five years ago arguing that he wanted to be like then-GOP congressional leader Paul Ryan:

    Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley plans to launch her presidential campaign in less than two weeks with an event in Charleston, S.C. Sen. Tim Scott will kick off a “listening tour” a day later — from the same city — before following Haley to Iowa. Former vice president Mike Pence will be in Charleston next week. And Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will start traveling the country after the Feb. 28 release of his memoir, headlining back-to-back GOP dinners in Houston and Dallas where “platinum sponsors” who chip in $50,000 will get photos and tickets to a VIP reception.

    While former and potentially future President Donald Trump is the highest profile 2024 contender who has declared, it's only a matter of time before he'll be joined by other big names. Former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC), who was also Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, is expected to formally announce later this month, as Matt covered. There's another contender who may be getting closer to announcing though, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). There had been some chatter for the past few weeks, but as Fox News' Paul Steinhauser reported on Wednesday, Scott is officially embarking on "Faith in America," a sort...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis may be months away from publicly declaring his presidential intentions, but his potential rivals aren’t holding back. No fewer than a half dozen Republicans eyeing the White House have begun actively courting top political operatives in states like New Hampshire and Iowa, which traditionally host the opening presidential primary contests. At the same time, former President Donald Trump, the only announced candidate in the race, is launching regular attacks against DeSantis — and others — while locking down key staff and endorsements in early voting South Carolina. For now, DeSantis is...

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that former President Donald Trump will be the Republican 2024 presidential nominee or he will “burn down” anyone who is. Referencing House Republicans voting for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think Speaker McCarthy gets a fundraising boom. I think he gets potentially currying favor with either Trump and his base, saying I delivered on these promises. I’m a good soldier to the Trumpian political base. I am really letting the world know that the House Republican Party is now...

    On Tuesday, Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) published a piece in the Wall Street Journal explaining his reasoning for supporting former President Donald Trump for the 2024 Republican nomination. The article, titled “Trump’s Best Foreign Policy? Not Starting Any Wars,” emphasized the 45th president’s foreign policy chops.Vance, who rose to prominence with his hit book “Hillbilly Elegy” in 2016, won the endorsement of President Trump during his run for Senate last year. Vance is seemingly returning the favor as the Republican contest for the presidency begins to take shape, as reported by Breitbart.“A few days before America’s 2022 midterm elections, Ukraine’s...

    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) couldn’t name one specific thing that Democrats should cut from the budget for future spending when challenged to do so Wednesday on “CNN This Morning.” Meanwhile, when asked whether President Biden should negotiate on the debt ceiling, Durbin said, “absolutely not.” […] … (CNN host Poppy) Harlow pointed out that Durbin introduced the Debt Ceiling Reform Act last year, which takes that responsibility from Congress and assigns it to the treasury secretary — “one unelected individual.” She asked why that should be taken out of the hands of Congress. “Isn’t that why you guys are elected;...

    He has my support in 2024 because I know he won’t recklessly send Americans to fight overseas.A few days before America’s 2022 midterm elections, Ukraine’s President Volodomyr Zelensky accused Russia of firing a rocket into Poland. It was a claim with extraordinary implications. Poland, a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, benefits from the alliance’s mutual defense pact—an attack against one is an attack against all. The U.S. would plausibly have an obligation to respond militarily to a Russian attack inside Poland. In making the accusation, Mr. Zelensky was pushing on the dominoes that could start the world’s first...
