Ron DeSantis Explains Why He’s Not Interested in Being Trump’s VP


Ron DeSantis was on Newsmax with Eric Bolling when the host asked if he would agree to become a running mate with Donald Trump as his vice president. He dismissed the notion, although many Republicans would like to see that ticket.

“I think I’m probably more of an executive guy… I think that you want to be able to do things,” he said. “That’s part of the reason I got into this job is because we have action. We are able to make things happen. And I think that’s probably what I’m best suited for,” Gov. DeSantis said.

Bolling then asked DeSantis if he would choose Trump to be his vice presidential nominee.

DeSantis called Bolling’s question “interesting speculation.”

Conservatives don’t want to see the two top contenders attack each other, but it’s happening.

Recently, Donald Trump was asked if he would choose Ron DeSantis, and he said he hadn’t considered it, although he was somewhat receptive to the idea last year. He said his endorsement pushed Ron DeSantis over the top in the gubernatorial race. That is true. When he said he’s a disciple of Paul Ryan, he’s probably referring to DeSantis’s support for salvaging Medicare with privatization, something then-Speaker Ryan promoted. It was a different time.

A new Monmouth poll shows Trump surging in the GOP primary polls to a 14 point lead over Gov. Ron DeSantis since Democrats announced DJT’s potential arrest. it’s also since Donald Trump began attacking him.

According to pollster John McLaughlin, Donald Trump has risen in the polls since Afghanistan.

Rasmussen is showing the same thing.

Realistically, would any of the readers prefer to be vice-president to being the governor of Florida?
Thinking of going into an election, if you were the candidate would you pick DeSantis as your running mate in order to gain votes from the so-called independent voters? Do you think you could win without the independent voters and the suburban women?

What the readers on this site might want is not necessarily the team that can actually win the presidency.

People with blind ambition, who want to move up the hierarchy easily, want to be VP. Harris is one.

DeSantis has appeal, he would be smeared like any conservative would be.

DeSantis has blown his chance at being President short of Trump Dying; and then that’s even slim.

DeSantis has recently become a publicity hound, just as indictments of Trump were being planned. I am suspicious of that. DeSantis is closely connected to RINOs who may get advance notice from their leftist allies on indictment plans. The overall situation may have been coordinated.

The errors of DeSantis are numerous and unforced, which also indicates coordination, because he seems more sensible than he has behaved. One of those errors is his obvious affiliations with RINOs who hate Trump, which are being exposed. Another problem is that other states have shown leadership far above DeSantis on various gender abuses, but he was the one making all the noise.
