The media has run wild with the new alleged Trump-DeSantis feud.
Multiple outlets — including some on the right are beginning to claim Trump and DeSantis are not happy with each other.
All of that has apparently changed according to several recent media reports of tension between the two – which appear to be supported by Trump insiders, as well as comments by both Trump and DeSantis that left-leaning outlets have used to fuel speculation. According to the reports, Trump has been not-so privately complaining about DeSantis’ rapid political rise and a potential 2024 bid for the White House.
“President Trump is the one clearly picking a fight here, and it’s a fight that’s too early, and unnecessary,” said former adviser Sam Nunberg, who told The Hill he’s neutral over the dustup between the two. “We’re not in Republican primary season. This is a fight for mid-2023. It’s not a fight to start having in 2022.”
“If Donald Trump believes he is punching down when he’s attacking Ron DeSantis, then why do it?” he added.
The alleged drama has ignited a media firestorm, as the left would of course love nothing more than for two of the GOP’s biggest threats to go at each other ahead of midterms and the 2024 election.
An article published on Sunday by The New York Times offered a detailed accounting of an increasingly confrontational relationship between Trump and DeSantis.
Likewise, a story published by Axios on Monday reporting that Trump has been privately disparaging DeSantis as “dull” and lacking in “personal charisma” found itself front-and-center on the conservative website Drudge Report.
And just last week, Trump appeared to take a thinly veiled shot at DeSantis for refusing to say publicly whether he has received his COVID-19 booster shot. In an interview with the conservative One America News Network, the former president slammed “gutless” politicians who won’t reveal their booster status, a comment that was widely viewed as aimed at the Florida governor.
“The answer is yes, but they don’t want to say it, because they’re gutless,” Trump said. “You got to say it. Whether you had it or not, say it.” –The Hill
Don’t buy into this feud.
The “Trump vs. DeSantis” stories are not a coincidence.
They’re a Beltway concoction meant to distract from Biden’s disastrous presidency.
Don’t take the bait. https://t.co/4eVjF4nvDy

Watch this closely — Establishment Conservative Media pushing the rift between Trump and DeSantis
This is a ridiculous feud — for many reasons.
This is nothing more than a distraction from the disaster that is Joe Biden’s presidency.
When Trump announces he will run in 2024 — candidates who want to run against him will run.
Until then this speculative nonsense does nothing.
