Former President Donald Trump responded to Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) entering the 2024 presidential race on Wednesday by mocking the governor and his campaign’s Twitter launch, which he called a “disaster.” He also worked in a reference to North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un, who he said would soon be his “friend.”
DeSantis officially entered the race Wednesday afternoon by filing with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) hours before he appeared for a live-streamed event on Twitter with billionaire Elon Musk, where he formally announced his campaign for president.
“I’d like to personally congratulate ‘Rob’ DeSanctimonious on finally announcing that he will be entering the race for President of the United States,” Trump posted on his social media platform Truth Social. “Hopefully he will get the full experience of being attacked by the Marxists, Communists, and Radical Left Lunatics of our Country, without which he will never know the kind of job he is doing. These Lowlifes & Misfits are far worse than the leaders of hostile foreign countries. They must be soundly defeated in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
As DeSantis’ Twitter event had some technical difficulties due to the high level of strain that it placed on the company’s servers, Trump added: “‘Rob,’ My Red Button is bigger, better, stronger, and is working (TRUTH!), yours does not! (per my conversation with Kim Jung Un, of North Korea, soon to become my friend!).”
