Former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have been engaged in a bitter war of words as they battle for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination. During an interview with Fox News, Trump claimed he got DeSantis elected and called him out for a lack of loyalty. DeSantis responded by accusing Trump of being “full of it” for suggesting that former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo did a better job handling Covid than he did. The two have also clashed over DeSantis’s record on lockdowns and school closures during the pandemic. Trump has taken credit for endorsing DeSantis and getting him past Democrat Andrew Gillum in the general election. However, DeSantis has pushed back on Trump’s claims, saying that he was fine without Trump’s endorsement. The feud between the two potential presidential candidates is likely to continue as the Republican primary season heats up.
