Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis over the weekend over DeSantis’ support for Colorado GOP Senate candidate Joe O’Dea — who has said he would actively campaign against the 45th president if he runs again in 2024.
“A BIG MISTAKE!,” Trump wrote of the Florida governor’s endorsement on his Truth Social platform Sunday.
That barb came a week after Trump called O’Dea “stupid” in response to the Senate hopeful saying a 2024 rematch between the former and current presidents would “tear this country apart.”
“DeSantis, Scott, Pompeo or Haley would be better choices,” O’Dea said in a statement, referring to the Florida governor, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and former South Carolina governor and US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
