Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ 2024 presidential primary campaign is facing significant challenges, with key officials leaving his Super PAC, signaling instability.

Despite his strong 2022 re-election, he’s slipping in polls behind Donald Trump and Nikki Haley.

Trump has urged DeSantis and other GOP contenders to drop out, claiming credit for DeSantis’ previous success. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“I think he has to get out for the good of the party,” Trump said.

“He could have waited, and he would have been the odds-on favorite for ’28, but he didn’t do that.”

“I got him elected. If it weren’t for me, he wouldn’t be governor; he’d be working in a law office right now or doing whatever he was going to do.”

“He was dead when I endorsed him, he came begging for an endorsement, and when I endorsed him he had a couple of like a rocket ship. One day! One day,” Trump said separately.

“He was losing at a level you would never even believe possible,” Trump added.

“I even said, ‘I don’t think that if George Washington came back from the dead if Abraham Lincoln came back from the dead, I don’t think they could help you, Ron, you’re dead.’”

“I endorsed him, and he ended up winning easily, and then we got him past the general election, running a then-very hot candidate who Ron didn’t think we could beat, but we beat him.”

“And then three years later. They asked him, ‘Are you gonna run against the president,’ and he said ‘I have no comment.’”

“And I said ‘Wait a minute, did he say he has no comment? That means he’s running.’”

The tension between the two has come as a surprise to many, given Trump’s support for DeSantis in the 2018 election.

These recent developments suggest a turbulent path for DeSantis’ presidential aspirations.
