DEVELOPING STORY: President Trump took a shot Saturday night at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — calling him “Ron DeSanctimonious.”
“We’re winning big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump told a crowd in Latrobe, Pennsylvania on Saturday night before going down the list of other Republicans who could potentially challenge him in 2024.
“There it is, Trump at 71 percent, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%,” Trump told the crowd while reading approval numbers of various Republicans.
“Mike Pence at seven, oh, Mike is doing better than I thought,” Trump continued. “Liz Cheney there’s no way she’s at 4%. There’s no way. There’s no way. But we’re at 71 to 10 to 7 to 4.”
Fox News suggested there is growing tension between the two men.
The Mainstream Media is having a field day — accusing the former president of openly attacking the man that many believe would make a great presidential contender.
Conservatives were stunned and puzzled as to why Trump would fire a political bullet just days before the mid-term elections. Watch below.
