Former President Donald Trump bitterly attacked Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Truth Social after DeSantis commented on Trump’s involvement with adult film actor Stormy Daniels.

DeSantis is likely eyeing a bid for the Republican nomination for President. DeSantis’ campaign is likely the most competitive adversary for Trump in the 2024 primary election. The two presidential hopefuls have been ramping up competitive dialogue accordingly.

Trump turned to his smear tactic and implied questions about DeSantis’ sexuality in the post.

“Ron DeSanctimonious will probably find out about FALSE ACCUSATIONS & FAKE STORIES sometime in the future, as he gets older, wiser, and better known, when he’s unfairly and illegally attacked by a woman, even classmates that are “underage” (or possibly a man!),” Trump said about DeSantis. “I’m sure he will want to fight these misfits just like I do!”

“At the end of the day, as a leader, you really want to look to people like our Founding Fathers,” DeSantis said. “It’s not saying that you don’t ever make a mistake in your personal life, but I think, what type of character are you bringing? … I think the person is more about how you handle your public duties and the kind of character you bring to that endeavor.”
