Trump takes credit for Ron DeSantis’ win

Last night, Donald Trump attempted to take credit for his Republican competitor Ron DeSantis’ rapid rise within the party, claiming the Florida governor would be nowhere without his endorsement in 2018.

DeSantis defeated Democrat Charlie Crist by a staggering 19 points in yesterday’s midterm election, flipping the blue bastion of Miami Dade county.

Many are hopeful he will declare a run for president in 2024, as he is now regarded as the future of the Republican Party.

Trump, who watched last night from Mar-a-Lago as many of his preferred candidates failed, is not among them.

Trump attempted to take credit for DeSantis’ whole career in an interview with NewsNation, a day after suggesting that he “knows more about him than his wife” in an attempt to dissuade DeSantis from running for the White House.

Ron DeSantis defeated Charlie Crist with relative ease, the largest victory since the late 1800s Reconstruction era.

He was incapable of even being a factor in the race. And in a matter of seconds, the race was finished. I secured his nomination. He didn’t get it. I understood because as soon as I made the endorsement, he understood.’

Then he ran despite not being expected to win.

I believed he might have been more courteous. However, that is up to him.

After receiving Trump’s endorsement, DeSantis won yesterday by a massive margin of 19 points, something he could not have imagined in 2018 when he won by only 1 point.

It appeared to be a perfect political fit; DeSantis stood with his children and a copy of Trump’s book The Art of the Deal to pledge his support.

In recent weeks and months, however, a rivalry has developed between the two, largely due to speculations that both men are planning to run for president in 2024.

This weekend at a rally, Trump referred to the Governor of Florida as “Ron De-Sanctimonious.”

Yesterday, Trump stated that if DeSantis ran again, it would be a “huge mistake.”

I am unaware that he is running. I believe he could severely injure himself if he runs.

I believe he would be committing an error. I believe the base would dislike it.

In addition, he threatened DeSantis and advised him against running in 2024.

In 2018, DeSantis campaigned solely on the basis of Trump’s endorsement. He featured The Art of the Deal in campaign videos and his children wore MAGA onesies.

“He runs if he runs. If he does run, I will tell you some not-so-flattering things about him.

I know more about him than anyone else, with the exception of his wife, who is directing his campaign.

Ignoring the races in which his picks lost, he told his followers on Truth Social that the evening had been “OUTSTANDING.”

Jim Acosta of CNN quotes an unidentified aide as saying that the president is yelling at everyone today.

In an interview yesterday, he stated that he deserved credit if the Republicans won, but not blame if they lost.

If they win, all the credit should go to me. And if they lose, I am not at all to blame. However, it will likely be precisely the reverse.

“When they win, I believe they will do exceptionally well, I will likely receive very little credit, and if they fail, they will blame everything on me.

“I’m ready for anything.” We’ll defend ourselves.’

He also claimed credit for Ron DeSantis’s 2018 victory, stating that he “was not going to be a player” in the election prior to his support.

Trump is being blamed for the dismal overnight performance of the Republican Party.

Many believe it’s time to’move on’ from the Trump administration, citing his pick of ‘flawed’ individuals as the cause of unimpressive outcomes.

There is still a chance that the Republicans will win both the House and the Senate, but a conclusion is not expected for weeks, if not months.

However, they did not perform as spectacularly as anticipated.

Republicans started a stinging post-mortem on Wednesday morning, citing Mitch McConnell’s August warning that the party’s inability to flip the Senate may be attributed to the low quality of its candidates.

This is a critical juncture for the Republican party. Without a question, Donald Trump is in the rearview mirror. The moment has come for the party to move on,’ Georgia Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan said CNN.
