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.

SO WHAT

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

WHAT HAPPENED

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.”

THE ‘MAGA’ MOJO

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