As the tension between President Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis escalates, it’s crucial for conservatives to rally together in these trying times. The cold war between these two prominent figures has turned hot recently, following reports that Trump may be indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in connection to payments made to Stormy Daniels.
Many Trump supporters have criticized Governor DeSantis for not condemning these politically motivated charges sooner and refusing to help the former president by blocking his extradition to New York. This perceived lack of loyalty has raised eyebrows and stirred concern among conservatives.
DeSantis finally addressed the issue, albeit with a veiled jab at Trump. He stated that he didn’t “know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star.” Instead of uniting against the impending indictment, DeSantis chose to make a subtle attack on the former president. Conservatives from all walks of life have voiced their disapproval, believing that unity is paramount in condemning the indictment.
Undeterred by the backlash, DeSantis doubled down on his stance in an interview with Piers Morgan. He alluded to the “daily drama” in the White House during Trump’s tenure and criticized the former president’s staffing decisions. DeSantis claimed his leadership approach prioritized finding government personnel who shared the people’s agenda and had no tolerance for individual agendas.
In the interview, DeSantis appeared unfazed by Trump’s nickname for him, “Ron DeSanctimonious.” Brushing off the moniker, he said he didn’t know what it meant but liked its length and abundance of vowels. Moreover, he asserted that regardless of the name-calling, people should recognize him as a winner due to the success Florida has experienced under his leadership.
Just as radical Dems are indicting Trump & destroying the fabric of our nation with their Police State tactics, DeSantis pathetically runs to the liberal media on orders from his RINO establishment owners to attack my father.

The growing rift between Trump and DeSantis is alarming for the conservative movement. It’s time for both parties to put their differences aside and focus on the greater good. The politically motivated charges against Trump demand a unified response from conservatives, rather than creating further division.
DeSantis’ comments and his insistence on distancing himself from Trump’s predicament only serve to weaken the conservative movement. As a prominent leader within the party, he should be uniting conservatives against the indictment, not taking veiled shots at the former president. This divisive behavior could ultimately harm both DeSantis and the conservative cause.
It is crucial for the conservative movement to remain strong and united in the face of adversity. The Trump-DeSantis conflict is a distraction from the pressing issues at hand, such as politically motivated indictments and the fight for conservative values. Both leaders must put their differences aside and work together for the greater good, demonstrating solidarity and unity to protect the conservative movement and its core beliefs.
