Donald Trump blasts Ron DeSantis: 'He's got no personality'

by Ryan King, Breaking Politics Reporter 
May 15, 2023 08:12 AM


Former President Donald Trump blasted his top likely 2024 rival, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), by saying he has "no personality."

Trump, who would not commit to backing DeSantis if he clinches the GOP nod, gloated over his recent gains over the Florida governor in polls amid apparent backlash over his indictment. He also rebutted the governor's indirect digs about the party's recent spate of electoral losses under his term.

"Ron's not a winner because Ron, without me, wouldn't have won. If I would have left it alone, he would have lost by 30 points or more," Trump told the Messenger. "He's got no personality. And I don't think he's got a lot of political skill."

In the 2018 gubernatorial election cycle, Trump threw his weight behind DeSantis, who won a close race. Since then, DeSantis's popularity exploded, and Trump soured on him publicly as the governor's name began being floated as a possible 2024 contender.

Could this article be moved from this thread to its own @Cyber Liberty ?  The abortion issue is important and ought not be highjacked.

Thanks.

Topic Split.  This article is off topic, which was abortion.

Because having a great personality is the most important requirement for a President....

Isn't that "style over substance" the exact thing about which conservatives have always complained?

Goodness, with the Mr Magoo that’s currently the president, one would think there are more important issues than a bubbly personality.
Dems have the WEAKEST candidate and all we hear is this crap?

I haven't heard DeSantis speak so I have no idea about his personality. Sadly, this is a concern for some voters. The candidate needs to be cute and charismatic.  :shrug: No matter what they stand for.

I see a difference between no personality and abrasive personality. Depends on beliefs.

Sure he does.

He adopts whatever personality he needs at the time he needs it.

He probably still has dozens of personalities he has never used.

@debrawiest

Well,regardless of who the Republican candidate will be,they will have hundreds of thousands of illegal votes to counter in order to win.

If we could bring George Washington back to life and clone him,even he would have a tough time winning these days.

Trump needs to occupy his time with more important things, such as planning how to lose his next court case.

Man Trump has been recycling and retreading like crazy today. Out of material? Out of ideas?

Does he remember DeSantis was a congressman before Trump stepped on the stage?

Maybe he caught some of Biden's senility disease.

The singular idea that gave him the White House was his stance on immigration.  Predictably, he failed to achieve anything long-term in that regard, so we're now in a much worse position than we were when he took office.

And I applaud his stance on that and a number of other issues he brought to the conversation. He did change the debate and shifted demographics to the GOP side, like blue collar Dems, completely busting the Rats hold on them.

But we need more than conversation. We need action and results, and so far DeSantis has been head and shoulders above everyone for getting things done.

That to me was his signature issue, especially in light of what we see now
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

This is true and as I have pointed out before; Trump had a full majority for 2 years and did nothing about the border or illegal immigration until just days before the new DEM House was seated.  Cruz on several occasions tried to get Trump to act -- he didn't listen.

And I think that was Trump's one and only chance to do it because he was working with a GOP Congress whose leadership was willing to give him a chance to set the agenda.  And because not all independence had yet chosen a side.

Even if he wins in 2024 and holds the House, there are too many Democrats who won't support anything that has Trump's name on it - even if they might otherwise be open to the policy itself.  The only things he'll be able to get done are whatever he can do by EO, and judges.  Other than that, his Presidency would be DOA.

Right… DeSantis doesn’t possess Trump’s ability to charm everyone around him.  Yet… somehow he’s personable enough to .. ahem .. WIN RE-ELECTION.
