Former President Donald Trump has threatened Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis with unpleasant exposure if he enters the race for the White House in 2024. He may have said “things that are not particularly flattering” about DeSantis, Trump told Fox News Digital on Tuesday. “I know more about him than anyone—except maybe his wife.

On Monday, Trump announced a “very big announcement” for November 15. It can be assumed that he wants to announce his candidacy in the presidential elections in 2024, which has been hinted for a long time.

DeSantis – a strong rival

The 76-year-old remains popular among Republican voters. And the few Republican politicians who broke with him after his lies about presidential election fraud were ostracized by the party.

But in the country as a whole, Trump is so controversial that several Republicans, such as DeSantis or his former vice president Mike Pence, are believed to challenge him with their own candidacy. The 44-year-old DeSantis, who is also placed on the right, is considered a particularly strong opponent.

“If he starts, it could be very painful for him,” Trump said of the Florida governor. “I think he would make a mistake. I don’t think that would be good for the party.” DeSantis won re-election as governor of his state on Tuesday.
