Trump-DeSantis in 2024? Former president suggests it's a ticket that could work
In Florida, DeSantis has a job-approval rating of 56% and double-digit leads over his Democratic challengers.

Former President Donald Trump is stoking speculation about the next GOP ticket, suggesting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would make a good vice president if he ran in 2024.

It's not the first time Trump's suggested DeSantis as a running mate. But the mention of the popular Republican governor was met with cheers from the crowds at two events held over the weekend in the Sunshine State.

Trump made the suggestion the first night of a "History Tour" with former Fox News host, radio commentator and author, Bill O'Reilly.

The "Limited Engagement National Tour" has been touted as a way for Trump to discuss the history of his administration in a series of live conversations.

"Mr. Trump and Mr. O'Reilly will discuss exactly how things were accomplished, as well as challenges, both good and bad, during the four years of Mr. Trump's presidency," the tour description states.

The first two Trump-O'Reilly History Tour events were held at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise on Saturday and the Amway Center in Orlando on Sunday.

When asked whether DeSantis would be on the ticket if Trump were to run again, Trump said, "I think Ron [DeSantis] would be good. I think Mike [Pence] has been very hurt by what took place with respect to January 6. I think he's been mortally wounded, frankly."

Trump added there were "a lot" of other strong choices for running mates, including South Carolina Senator Tim Scott or a female candidate.

On Saturday, when DeSantis was mentioned, the audience broke out in applause, The Sun-Sentinel reported. When former Republican Governor Jeb Bush was mentioned, the audience erupted with loud boos.

Trump has not officially announced that he's running for president in 2024. He's only dropped hints during media appearances over the last few months.

DeSantis has previously dismissed 2024 rumors, calling them "nonsense."

In November, he officially filed to run for reelection for governor in 2022. He also recently told Fox News' Sean Hannity that's he's focused on being Florida's governor.

"I'm not considering anything beyond doing my job," he said.

According to an October poll conducted by Saint Leo University Polling Institute, DeSantis has a job-approval rating of 56% and double-digit leads over his Democratic challengers.

A June Morning Consult poll had DeSantis' approval rating at 54%, up from a March Mason-Dixon poll's 53% approval rating.

O'Reilly asked Trump on Sunday in Orlando if he would run for president again.

"That's the question on many American minds, conservative or liberal," O'Reilly says. "His approval numbers are on the rise due in part to President Joe Biden's lackluster first year in office."

"I'm helped a lot by the current administration, in all fairness," Trump told O'Reilly. "I hate to admit it. I think the people are going to be very happy with what I do."

The tour's next two stops are in Texas: at the Houston Toyota Center on Saturday and the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Sunday.

Something tells me it just isn't going to go down that way. It is clearly obvious that democrats are willing to do anything to prevent Trump from running again. That kangaroo court known as the Jan 6th Committee is clearly all about finding a way to get Trump. They are even going after his tax returns again!  Here, right in front of us, we can still see the level of fear & hate involving Trump. I think they again find a way and in the end it will be DeSantis leading the ticket with someone else as his running mate.

He's an outsider, and he demonstrated in four years what an outsider could do compared to all those insiders who have been there since god created the planet from both sides couldn't...

If they ever get down off their high horse and take off their blinders they would see it plainly like most unbiased Americans do... Yes he was an ass, but a very effective ass...

All true, but they aren't going to let him run again. Let us face that fact. Furthermore, he may not want to run again - not if it means the possibility losing for a second time!

Exactly. But the fact he was a bit of an ass, well pretty big ass, blinded them beyond seeing what was actually going on and the good he accomplished. And as you say, it pisses them off that an outsider could be that effective. Upset the status quo. And it was fucking GLORIOUS!!!

And that's another thing. The democrats are still feeling good about the way they changed the 2020 election rules. They will be looking to do that permanently and lest we forget, they still have another year to do many dirty things.

"Senate Democrats are escalating pressure on Sen.  Joe Manchin  (D-W.Va.) to get behind using the “nuclear option” to change the filibuster and break a months-long stalemate on voting rights legislation.

The flurry of talks — including dedicating a closed-door caucus lunch to the issue despite a public hyper-focus on passing  President Biden ’s climate and social spending bill — comes as Democrats are facing intense pressure to pass election legislation though there isn’t yet a clear path forward.

A group of Democrats, tapped by Senate Majority Leader  Charles Schumer  (D-N.Y.), met with Manchin Tuesday as part of rolling discussions. But Manchin, simultaneously, is pushing for rules changes to be bipartisan and holding talks with Republicans, who are unlikely to support the sort of reform needed to get voting legislation passed.

A Trump - De Santis ticket would be perfect for me!  Then De Santis and Haley, or Noem, or Tim Scott, would be great in 28! Rubio would be good too but can’t have 2 on a ticket from the same state.

I would say based upon my feelings alone that DeSantis is probably the odds on favorite right now... BUT: there is a lot of territory to cover before we get there, and how Florida does in the next three years is going to tell the tale...

Maybe. If the election were held tomorrow either Trump or DeSantis would win in a landslide. As you say there is a lot of time until 2024. By then democrats hope to change election laws so that every election will be like the 2020 edition.

Morning in Biden's America:

"The House on Tuesday voted to hold former White House chief of staff   Mark Meadows   in contempt, headlining a busy day on Capitol Hill that included action to raise the debt ceiling and questions about whether Democrats are making any progress to win Sen.   Joe Manchin ’s   (D-W.Va.) vote for the Build Back Better agenda.

 Lawmakers voted to hold Meadows, a former conservative member from North Carolina, in criminal contempt for noncompliance with a subpoena and failure to provide some information to the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Members voted largely along party lines, 222-208, with Reps.   Liz Cheney   (R-Wyo.) and  Adam Kinzinger   (R-Ill.), who are members of the panel, breaking party ranks ( The Hill ).

 The vote took place after the committee released a second batch of text messages from allies begging Meadows on Jan. 6 to try to persuade former  President Trump  to quell the rioters. 

 " The President needs to stop this asap,”  one unidentified GOP lawmaker wrote to Meadows.

  On Tuesday , Cheney read aloud a number of explosive text messages Meadows received amid the Capitol attack from  Donald Trump Jr.  and a number of Fox News hosts making similar pleas of Trump via Meadows. The former chief of staff asserted this week that messages he had turned over to the panel were “selectively leaked” to the public.

  “We've tried very hard, in [a] very transparent and accommodating way, to share non-privileged information,”  Meadows told Newsmax’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight.”  “And what we found out tonight is that not only did that just get disregarded, but then they tried to weaponize text messages, selectively leaked them, to put out a narrative, quite frankly, that the president didn't act. … And I can tell you this: The president did act”  ( Daily Beast ).

 As  The Hill’s Niall Stanage writes in his latest Memo , the disclosed messages help make the case for defenders of the committee who believe the more information that comes to light about the worst attack on the Capitol in more than two centuries, the better. 

The House on Tuesday voted to hold former White House chief of staff   Mark Meadows   in contempt, headlining a busy day on Capitol Hill that included action to raise the debt ceiling and questions about whether Democrats are making any progress to win Sen.   Joe Manchin ’s   (D-W.Va.) vote for the Build Back Better agenda.

Meanwhile, Congress moved early today to raise the debt limit by a deadline described by the Treasury Department and provided lawmakers a breather in the debt battle until after next year’s midterm elections. Senate Democrats, acting without GOP support, voted 50-49 to increase the limit by $2.5 trillion to a cap of $31.4 trillion ( The Hill  and  Reuters ). The House followed early today by a vote of 221-209 ( The Hill ).  President Biden  will sign the measure."

Democrats still pretend the Jan 6th commission is bipartisan; and not just another of their "Get Trump at all cost lynch mobs."

Same tactics as the two impeachments, and the Mueller investigation, selectively leak any information that supports their get Trump agenda; while burying all information that disproves it.

McCarthy really needs to terminate Republican association with Cheney and Kinzinger. They are proving they are Democrats with each and every vote, and action. Time to remove them from all committees they are assigned to; and force Nancy to reassign them. That will prove to everyone they are now Democrats in name as well as deed.

I think it will end up being DeSantis and Haley. I just don't think Trump can win another national election...the voters were, and remain, fed up with all the drama and bluster. The events after the election culminating in the Jan 6 debacle ruined any chance that Trump could return. Hopefully the wiser members at the Republican Convention will see to it that a winning combination gets on the ticket. If the Dems are foolish enough to keep fighting battles they have already lost and forget the midterms, they will have no power left after the coming holidays. Manchin and Sinema need to hang tough.

If DeSantis wants to be president, I don’t think he needs Trump. I think he could win on his own. In fact, he might do better with independents than Trump would. I would love to see a full, fresh batch of Republican candidates, and not Trump.

He doesn't in the future as long as he takes care of business now. Right now T Rump speculation is keeping him in the news and a resurgent Florida doing well is opening eyes around the nation...

Free political promotion is absolutely worth it's weight in mountains of gold... especially when that promotion is favorable over the one they are talking about..

I agree.  I think Trump lost because he underestimated how much the independents were tired of his assholery.  If he was smart he would have realized that and toned it down.  If he did he would be president today.    Unfortunately I don't think he is smart enough to realize that or has enough control to change his assholery so although the base may still vote for him the independents are likely to stay away. Unless of course the left continues on their path to socialism during the next three years in which case all bets are off.

She has been my prime GOP candidate for PotUS but I doubt she would run — especially now with so much bizarre support in the GOP for Trump.   My guess is that she is not so sure what the GOP is right now.

I suspect she is more concerned than confused.

She has the qualities that I look for in a presidential candidate:

  • honorable
  • experienced
  • intelligent
  • diplomatic
  • grounded
  • youthful (albeit on the tail end) but seasoned
  • responsible
  • patriotic (will make decisions for the betterment of the nation, not herself)

Note, critically, her gender and her race have nothing whatsoever to do with this.  

Unfortunately, those with the above qualities tend to not want to place themselves in the ugly environment required to run for and be the PotUS.
