DeSantis to Hit the Campaign Trail for Trump After the Two Met in Florida

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis agreed to campaign on behalf of Donald Trump after the former rivals met Sunday morning as the ex-president looks to retake the White House, sources told The Post.

The two prominent Republicans met in Miami in an attempt to patch up a strained relationship, according to sources.

Insiders also told The Post that DeSantis is expected to raise money for the presumptive GOP nominee, on top of campaigning for him, after his own Oval Office ambitions came up short.

DeSantis, 45, suspended his campaign in January 2024 and quickly endorsed Trump over former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley when she was still in the race.

But in a February phone call to supporters, DeSantis said that some Trump campaign staffers had an ax to grind against him while claiming the criminal indictments against the former president helped him curry sympathy from primary voters.

He also asserted Trump, 77, would focus on “identity politics” when picking a running mate.

Trump’s campaign in response accused DeSantis of throwing cheap shots from afar. One campaign staffer even called DeSantis a “sad little man.”

The two GOP heavyweights were once allies following Trump’s endorsement of DeSantis when he first ran for Florida governor in 2018.

But as DeSantis prepped for a White House run, the warm relations chilled and transformed into a feud.

Trump labeled his political opponent “Ron DeSanctimonious” as DeSantis criticized aspects of Trump’s first term in office.

DeSantis has previously said he was not interested in serving as vice president to Trump.

The meeting between the pair on Sunday was first reported by the Washington Post.

The men spoke for several hours and were friendly after a mutual friend of theirs, Florida real estate investor and developer Steve Witkoff, set up the meeting, the newspaper reported.

The pair hadn’t spoken since the end of primary season, according to the Washington Post.

The meeting comes as Trump is on trial in Manhattan over an alleged hush money arrangement dating back to the 2016 presidential campaign.

    So glad these two are working together. I think Desantis can bring in lots of votes for Trump. I know several governors are going to help him campaign, since democrats have him tied up in court.

      I don’t trust RINO RON ever since he listened to the money and tried to run against Trump and MAGA.
      Trump will use him like the others tried to use him, haha.

    They are at least talking and coming together and that is a good thing. As to Hailey chances are she will support Biden or Kennedy and is it possible to bring in her base and some of the Anti Trump voters? Probably not therefor it is critical to bring him more minorities and suburban women and Independents to vote for Trump Bottom line given the pre vote mail in ballots and non secured ballot boxes Trump will have to get 86-90 million votes to beat the Demo-Hamas Party as their own game of swamping the vote counters with fake ballots!

    • RS says:

      David Bucher… We need over one hundred thousand or more, you know and I know the Democrats Marxist will be out and about doing what they do to fix the election in their favor.

  • Grant says:

    I am so, so pleased for the pair of them. I know I’m only a Brit but I saw the merit of these two being President and VP of the US two years ago. What a great ticket, Donald would be crazy not to pick him for VP.

    • RS says:

      Grant… here’s the thing two grownups can work out their differences and help each other and this will work for them. Unlike the current President who made the statement they were the adults to run things and how did that work out high inflation high prices for all foods and gas gone through the roof and more to come with this administration.

  • Me says:

    Let the surrogates do the campaign! Vivek, too!

    DonnieDOTARD’s ass being hauled to court everyday maybe a blessing in disguise.
