Conservative political strategist Roger Stone posted a video of himself greeting former President Donald Trump at an event at Mar-a-Lago over the weekend.

In the video posted on Rumble, a conservative social media site, Trump spots Stone and says, “Roger, my man! I didn’t even see you. How could I not see my Roger?”

“God bless you,” Stone said.

“I hope you’re doing well. Is everything okay?” the former President asked to which Stone responded, “Ron DeSantis is a piece of s—t.”

The context of the comment is unclear.

Florida Gov. DeSantis (R) is seen as a viable threat to another Trump bid for the White House, should both men decide to run. Neither have formally announced their candidacy.

DeSantis and Trump have historically had a good relationship, though rumors surfaced that the two had a falling out over DeSantis’ disloyalty. Stone has publically said that he thought it would be disloyal for DeSantis to consider running against Trump.

Both Trump and DeSantis denied the reports.

“Ron has been very good. He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news,” Trump said in an interview on Fox News in January.

“I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time,” he added.
