Trump’s Diss of DeSantis Shows Who’s the Alpha Dog

Former President Donald Trump dismissed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as a potential 2024 presidential challenger in a headline-making interview over the weekend.


Trump remains the dominant figure in Republican politics, and he’s not afraid to say so.


Speaking by phone with Yahoo! News Sunday, Trump said, “If I faced [DeSantis], I’d beat him like I would beat everyone else.”

“I don’t think I will face him,” added Trump, who has not declared his candidacy. “I think most people would drop out. I think he wold drop out.”


Despite losing reelection, Trump has maintained his dominant position atop the GOP hierarchy in part by intimidating critics and would-be challengers.
