Ron DeSantis appears to make jab at Donald Trump over re-election during …

The 2024 US Republican Presidential primary is already a high-stakes affair, with FiveThirtyEight polls showing that it is becoming a head-to-head contest between former President Donald Trump and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fl.)," who seem to have a bit of a power struggle going on.

In the midst of that, Trump has decided to call the Florida governor by his name, signaling that a brutal political war is coming , which some say could lead to the destruction of the Republican Party.

Taking to his social media platform Truth Social, the former commander-in-chief 'ReTruthed' a barrage of anti-DeSantis posts.

The exchange was shared on Twitter by journalist MollyJong-Fast who said she had no problem with the two "destroying each other" and the Republican Party.

Many others echoed Jong-Fast's sentiments.

One person wrote: "The more Ron is talked about, the nastier Donald will get. I'm here for it all!!"

Another added: "I am laying in the popcorn supply now."

A third wrote: "I've got a feeling that the '24 GOP presidential primaries are not going to be America's shining moment."

Trump and DeSantis have a tense history despite being quite similar to one another. The two were even fans of each other until a power struggle arose.

The former president has told people that he thinks the Florida lawmaker is "very overrated," noting he is confident that he could beat DeSantis in an election.
