Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has not yet made a Presidential announcement and has confirmed that he won’t be making one before the end of his state’s legislative session. Regardless, he is definitely talking like he will be throwing his hat in the 2024 GOP presidential primary race.
But what about a possible Trump ticket? DeSantis told Newsmax in an exclusive interview Thursday night, not gonna happen and to forget about him working with former President Donald Trump.
“I think I’m probably more of an executive guy,” DeSantis told “Eric Bolling The Balance.” “I think that you want to be able to do things. That’s part of the reason I got into this job is because we have action.
“We’re able to make things happen, and I think that’s probably what I am best suited for.”
Host Eric Bolling asked, since DeSantis has yet to announce — current Florida law would force him to step down as governor if he did — would he entertain an invitation from a prospective GOP-nominee Trump to be his vice president?
He laughed it off with the response above. And, as for asking Trump to be his vice president if he were to be nominated, DeSantis smiled and called it “interesting speculation” before pivoting like a polished politician.
“The whole party, regardless of any personalities or individuals, you have got to be looking at 2024 and saying, if the Biden regime continues, and they’re able to pick up 10-15 seats in the House and a Senate seat or two, this country is going to be in really, really bad shape,” DeSantis said.
