In many locales across the country, they are still counting votes for Tuesday’s midterm elections, again belying the serious need for electoral reform here in the United States.
But before the dust could truly settle on the contest, former President Donald Trump was already throwing some serious shade at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who Trump believes will likely run against him in the 2024 GOP presidential primaries.
And while DeSantis hasn’t yet made any public statements on the matter, Trump’s escalation of their feud has pushed the White House to gaslight the pair just a day after the Sunshine State lawmaker won reelection.
President Joe Biden said Wednesday he looked forward to a fight between former President Donald Trump and current Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in a possible run for president in 2024.
“It would be fun watching them take on each other,” Biden grinned, when asked by a reporter which candidate would be the strongest opponent in a theoretical 2024 election.
Biden also discussed his own potential reelection campaign – something that Democrats have been keenly concerned about in recent weeks.
“Our intention is to run again,” he said, boasting that Democrats had performed better than expected in the midterm elections.
He said that Democrats were breathing a “sigh of relief” that the MEGA MAGA Republicans were not taking power in Congress.
The president said it was “ultimately a family decision” about 2024, and he would wait to make a final decision.
“I think everybody wants me to run, but we’re going to have discussions about it,” he said.
Trump has previously threatened to release information about DeSantis that would be “unflattering”, according to the former President, but there was no indication as to what that could be.
