Update, 3:10 PM: Donald Trump complains that the ‘no longer great’ New York Post and Wall Street Journal are ‘all in’ on his potential rival Ron DeSantis for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination said
Trump also bashed DeSantis, calling him “Ron DeSanctimonias” and “an average Republican governor with good public relations.”
“Ron came to me in 2017 in a desperate fashion. “Ron had low approval ratings, bad polls, and no money, but he said if I backed him, I could win. I’m talking about Adam.” I didn’t know, so I said, “Ron, let’s try.” When I stood by it, using bad words was like a nuclear weapon going off. ”
He further praised DeSantis’ victory in 2018, claiming it “prevented his election from being stolen.”
“And now Ron DeSanctimonias is playing the game! The Fake News asked him if he would run if President Trump ran, and he said, ‘I’m just going to focus on the governor’s race.’ I’m not thinking about the future,” he said. Well, when it comes to loyalty and rank, it’s not really the right answer. This is just like the 2015 and 2016 media assault (collusion!) where Fox News fought to the end until I won, but After that, they couldn’t be more kind and supportive.
“We are in exactly the same position right now,” Trump wrote.
Trump has also lashed out at former House Speaker and Fox board member Paul Ryan and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying, without any evidence, that Dr. Vote for Corruption, who suggested that it was only natural that he lost to Mann. According to the latest total vote count via AP, Fetterman trailed his Oz by more than 200,000 votes, 51% to 47%. Oz also conceded the race.
Earlier, at 9:39 AM: Donald Trump rightfully lashed out at “fake news” and “enemies of the people.” In a series of post-mid, midnight, and early-morning posts, but his response was that they were coming because several Rupert Murdoch media outlets had him responsible for the Republican party’s disappointing results. It was a little different.
“Trump is the Republican Party’s Biggest Loser,” read a Wall Street Journal editorial board headline. “If Donald Trump can’t possibly lose the election, what will Democrats do?” read the editorial.
The New York Post called Trump “Trumpty Dumpty.” The subheading was, “Don (couldn’t build the wall) flopped. Can all Republicans get the party together again?”
On Fox News, Ron DeSantis’ lopsided victory in Florida has attracted considerable attention, making it even more frustrating for Trump, who has already scored some bargains on potential rivals for the 2024 Republican nomination. it’s new
On Wednesday’s primetime show, Laura Ingraham cited DeSantis’ victory as the future of the Republican Party and its strategies for winning. “We need to focus on winning, not just making decisions.” She also said that if voters “conclude that they put their egos or their grudges above what is good for the country, they will look elsewhere.” You didn’t specifically name Trump as a person, but the point seemed pretty clear.
On his social media platform Truth Social, Trump called on other media outlets to support him, as he did before. he wrote: For me, Fox News was always gone. I started my “journey” from 2015 to when he was 16 years old, but now he’s really gone. An opportunity for another medium to build absolute wealth and do good for America. Let’s see how it goes for a while, shall we? ”
Trump was reportedly hoping to announce the 2024 presidential election next week, but some of his own former advisers have suggested delaying it until after Georgia’s runoff election. Rafael Warnock (D-GA).
Mr. Trump has touted the number of wins he has endorsed, many of them in deficit districts. Perhaps the biggest sting was that of Mehmet Oz, who lost to Democrat John Fetterman in the cycle’s most expensive and high-profile Senate race.
Trump writes about the race of Oz by distancing himself from him while praising it.
Mr Trump wrote: Dr. Oz. First of all, Oz was a great guy who worked really hard and was a very good candidate, but he was in the race a long time before I endorsed him. It had nothing to do with it! ), & I wasn’t mad at all. fake news! ”
If Trump goes ahead with the announcement next week, he will not only be competing with DeSantis, but his former Vice President Mike Pence. With ABC News anchor David Muir and his CNN town hall. The Journal released excerpts from the book on Thursday, in which Pence said he would be a “wimp” if Trump didn’t move to block electoral votes on Jan. 6, 2021. “You’re being too honest. Trump got mad at Pence in one acrimonious exchange when the then-president pressured him to act like that.”
The big caveat to the idea that a media figure on the right is trying to ditch Trump and support someone else is that it’s a bit deja vu.
As Rolling Stone Editor-in-Chief Noah Shaktman noted, Trump has been written off many times before, even from Murdoch-owned media.
