According to reports, given Trump’s continued attacks on his one-time ally and possible future primary rival, a nasty showdown between the two seems increasingly likely.
A new Morning Consult survey issued on Tuesday showed Trump with a staggering 37% lead over Florida’s Governor, who is in denial of decreasing poll ratings in recent weeks despite the growing competition between them.
A report revealed on Wednesday showed DeSantis continuing his international trade visit in South Korea to meet Prime Minister Han Duck-soo and government officials. It occurred the same day President Joe Biden hosted a state dinner for President Yoon Suk Yeol of South Korea.
Meanwhile, Trump is attacking DeSantis for his lengthy absence from Florida over the last several months.
Reports show that on Tuesday, Trump’s campaign produced a calendar graphic accusing DeSantis of wasting Florida public money by touring the nation for a book and global tours.
On Thursday, DeSantis was the featured speaker at a celebration honoring the 75th birthday of the Jewish state.
The Florida governor will then be meeting James Cleverly, the British Foreign Secretary, and other business and government leaders during his last stop on his worldwide trip.
According to a report, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis claimed credit for the decision to relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, claiming he “cajoled” President Trump into making the change. But the name of the previous president, Donald J. Trump, was not mentioned.
DeSantis also made it apparent that he did not support the Iran nuclear agreement (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) of 2015 and said it was a failure since it gave the leadership in Tehran more confidence.
But he said nothing about Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the agreement.
The report notes that while abroad, DeSantis will face more scrutiny at home, where he is being criticized for many issues, including his widely publicized spat with the Walt Disney Company, which has led to a lawsuit against the Florida governor for what it calls a “targeted campaign” against the company.
