Donald Trump is not happy with how fast Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is bouncing back after the glitchy Twitter launch of his presidential campaign.

Despite the initial setback, DeSantis made numerous media appearances and managed to bring in a significant fundraising haul, showcasing the strength of his campaign and his resilience as a candidate​​.

DeSantis is positioning himself to the political right of Donald Trump, aiming to appeal to the hyper-conservative base. He supports more stringent policies, including a six-week abortion ban considered "too harsh" by some Republicans.

DeSantis also criticized Trump's support for providing amnesty to 1.8 million undocumented immigrants and contrasted his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic with the former president's approach. Despite these differences, DeSantis remains cautious not to alienate Trump's loyal supporters, emphasizing his appreciation for Trump's accomplishments, notably in the economy​​.

A significant advantage DeSantis holds is his fundraising prowess. He boasts over $80 million in a state account, and his supporting super PAC, Never Back Down, has reportedly raised at least $33 million. In the first 24 hours after his Twitter launch, DeSantis' team announced that he had collected an additional $8.2 million. His strong financial backing has allowed him to gain endorsements and deploy canvassers in early-voting states such as New Hampshire and Iowa​​.

Growing conservative support

DeSantis has been selective with media appearances, engaging with Republican-friendly outlets such as Fox News and Newsmax. This strategy has led to predominantly positive coverage and compliments for his leadership in Florida​.

DeSantis even pleaded his will to destroy the left and leftism in America, pulling his supporter into tribalism and pushing a narrative of Us v. Them.

Despite his strategic maneuvering and policy acumen, DeSantis occasionally reveals his awkwardness in casual conversation, which could impact his connection with voters. When asked by a radio host to follow him on Twitter, DeSantis responded vaguely, illustrating that the personal touch often present in politics is not his strong suit​​.

In conclusion, DeSantis' campaign has shown resilience, strategic positioning, significant fundraising capability, and a preference for friendly media. However, his ability to personally connect with voters may be a potential area for improvement.

Trump vs. DeSantis: Newsom Reveals Who He Sees as the Real Threat!

California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom targeted the top two contenders for the Republican presidential candidacy in 2024. Newsom is regarded as a rising star in the Democratic Party and a potential presidential candidate. According to him, former President Donald Trump's desire for "vengeance" poses an even greater threat to democracy as compared to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is "fundamentally authoritarian". "I've made the point about DeSantis that I think he's functionally authoritarian. I'm worried more, in many respects, about Trumpism, which transcends well beyond his term and time in tenure," Newsom said. He was referring to the former president's frequently expressed threats to exact "revenge" if he returns to the White House on the political foes he holds responsible for the numerous criminal charges brought against him. "The vengeance in Donald Trump's heart right now is more of a threat," said Newsom. Newsom stated that if Trump wins the general election in 2024, he will cooperate with his government to protect Californians' interests, just as he did during the Covid-19 outbreak. "At the end of the day, these are the cards that are dealt. And I want to do the best for the people that I represent, 40 million Americans that happen to live in California," Newsom said. However, DeSantis, the right-wing Republican Florida governor with whom he has regularly disagreed, received the brunt of Newsom's sharpest criticism. He criticized DeSantis' "partisanship"—most recently on show when he turned down Joe Biden's visit to the state in the wake of Hurricane Idalia—and disagreed with his plan to relax lockdowns and outlaw mask requirements. "I don't like the partisanship. And I thought it was demonstrably displayed by what I thought was a very weak exercise by governor DeSantis," Newsom said when asked about the Floridian's snub of Biden.

Historic Decision: Trump's Trial for Election Fraud Goes Live on YouTube

A court has decided that live streaming and television coverage of former President Donald Trump's election fraud trial in Georgia will be permitted. Judge Scott McAfee said all proceedings will be broadcast live on the Fulton County Court YouTube account. The trial has not yet been scheduled; however, it may occur next year when Trump seeks re-election. Trump and 18 other individuals are accused of plotting to rig the state's 2020 presidential election. The former Republican president has entered a not guilty plea to the 13 charges he faces in Georgia. He also has three other criminal trials pending. Typically, all courtroom sessions in Fulton County are televised live. It could be one of the most viewed trials in recent memory as it will be the only one of Trump's four trials to be broadcast. Trump traveled to Atlanta briefly last week to surrender to the Fulton County Jail and have his picture taken. At his arraignment, a brief session at which the plea is formally filed in court, Trump has waived his right to show up there on the scheduled hearing date. He is accused of exerting pressure on Georgia election authorities to overturn the results of the state's election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden. He called the state secretary to "recalculate" the vote total, which is at the heart of the prosecution's case. "I just want to find 11,780 votes," said Trump, as heard on a call recording. According to Trump, the call was "perfect," and the lawyers who were present did not voice any concerns. He has claimed that the Georgia case and the other three criminal cases he is facing are motivated by politics.
