It has been reported that former President Donald Trump and his most likely political challenger, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have scheduled competing campaign events. On Saturday Donald J. Trump led a Republican rally in Pennsylvania.
Mr. Trump and Ron DeSantis Each Held Their Own Campaign Rallies in Florida on Sunday.
A rally for Mr. Trump will be held at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition. Mr. DeSantis, who is favored to win a second term next week, sent a save-the-date to fellow Republicans for his own event, about 250 miles away near Tampa, after the Trump rally announcement. Sources say the DeSantis campaign has booked the event hall at the Sun City Center, a community for the elderly, but the event has not been officially announced.
SPRING HILL, Fla. — Sun City Center has a new mayor. According to Donald J. Trump, Governor Ron DeSantis hasn’t asked for his endorsement, so he hasn’t given it this year. His supporters claim that Mr. DeSantis was not personally invited to the Trump rally held on Sunday in Miami, and thus did not attend.
Just after a light rain began to fall, President Donald Trump looked up at the sky and then out into the crowd of thousands of patriots and said; " THIS IS THE GREATEST RALLY WE EVER HAD!" #TrumpRally

It’s not uncommon for egos to get hurt while working in politics. Rarely, however, has a schism at the top of a party become so publicly apparent at such a crucial time. Mr. Trump gave Mr. DeSantis one of his signature nicknames, Ron DeSanctimonious. During a rally on Saturday night in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
On Sunday, with only two days left until the midterm elections in 2022 are over. Their rising hostilities were front and center at competing campaign rallies in Florida. While Mr. Trump campaigned with Senator Marco Rubio and other Florida Republicans in South Florida, Mr. DeSantis held a series of events on the west coast of the state to advocate for his re-election.
Neither Mr. Trump nor Mr. DeSantis repeated the taunt on Sunday, and neither candidate mentioned the former president at their events. But the fallout from their impasse is sure to be a distraction for their party in the final days of the midterms and could threaten deeper divisions among Republicans as they seek to retake the White House in 2024.
Defaming a Republican governor four days before Election Day, when his name appears on the ballot, is a surefire way to lose votes. Senator Mitch McConnell’s former campaign manager and Republican strategist Josh Holmes used the hashtag #team on Twitter.
Mr. Trump has been hinting to his followers, both openly and behind closed doors, that he plans to make a formal announcement of another run for president very soon. Mr. DeSantis is widely considered the leading alternative for the Republican nomination, with speculation fueled by the fact.
He has raised an astounding $200 million to support his re-election bid (including about $90 million unspent) and is running a nationalized campaign in which he attacks President Biden more often than his Democratic challenger, former Representative Charlie Crist.
The 76-year-old former host of “The Apprentice” and the 44-year-old lawyer who has positioned himself to take over as master. Mr. Trump and Mr. DeSantis, are the most popular politicians in the refashioned Republican Party.
Mr. DeSantis, who had been a relatively unknown backbencher in Congress for six years prior to Mr. Trump’s endorsement of his underdog campaign for governor in 2018, has long claimed that the former president has a stake in his rise.
People close to the former president say that Mr. Trump’s generosity comes with strings attached and that he has repeatedly expressed bewilderment that Mr. DeSantis hasn’t shown a sufficient amount of loyalty.
Mr. Trump’s temper has Been further frayed by Mr. DeSantis’s
Mr. Trump has been particularly irritated by Mr. DeSantis’s efforts to put distance between them, such as when Mr. DeSantis endorsed Joe O’Dea, the Republican Senate candidate in Colorado, just days after Mr. Trump had criticized him for endorsing.
In addition to the slur he used on Saturday, Mr. Trump has been privately trying out other derogatory terms for Mr. DeSantis with his friends and advisers. On October 27, longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone appeared to try out the nickname for the former president in a post on Mr. Trump’s social media website.
Trump has expressed hesitation about harshly criticizing Florida’s governor before the midterms. After the governor’s team released a video on Friday intended to infuse his candidacy with a sense of the divine, some of his supporters claimed the decision to portray Mr. DeSantis as hypocritically pious had been made.
The original intent of the speech was to emphasize the significance of farming. Ram Trucks used it in a Super Bowl commercial in 2013. The version shared by Mr. DeSantis’s wife, Casey, serves to advertise his political platform.
Mr. DeSantis’s video features a booming narrator who explains that on day eight, God “looked down on his planned paradise and said: ‘I need a protector.'” That’s why the Almighty fashioned a warrior.
The video seemed intended to elevate Mr. DeSantis to the status of a figure of worship, much like Mr. Trump is viewed by many Christian nationalists and other ardent supporters.
Trump and DeSantis Plan Dueling Florida Rallies as Rivalry Builds
While campaigning for a group of Republican candidates in Pennsylvania on Saturday, Mr. Trump casually introduced the new epithet while discussing his overwhelming lead over Mr. DeSantis in fictitious early polls.
Mr. Trump, a branding magnate who has attached his name to everything from steaks to clothing lines, used the two enormous television screens on either side of the stage at his rally to show six slides of poll numbers demonstrating his political strength among Republicans.
Mr. DeSantis has played down speculation in Florida about a possible run for president. But he refused to commit to serving out his full term if re-elected in a debate with Mr. Crist.
Mr. DeSantis has scheduled 13 rallies across the state of Florida between this Friday and Monday, including three on Sunday, forcing some Republican candidates to make the difficult choice of whether to campaign with the governor or the former president.
A total of seven members of Congress, including Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, were in Miami. At the Sun City Center rally, Mr. DeSantis was introduced by Jimmy Patronis, the state’s elected chief financial officer.
Mr. DeSantis’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic took up the bulk of his hour-long address to a community hall crowd of around 500 people. He was careful to distinguish himself from Democrats and even some Republicans by emphasizing his pandemic policies.
Statements Made By Mr. DeSantis At Rally Where He Is Serving As a Leader
Instead of thinking about his own job security, Mr. DeSantis said, “As a leader, I need to be more concerned about jobs for the people I represent than worrying about my own.”
Mary Bishop, a retiree from Sun City Center who is 73 years old, expressed her displeasure with Mr. Trump’s attacks on Mr. DeSantis following the event. She admitted to voting for Trump twice but said she would support DeSantis in 2024.
We need someone who can unite us, she said, not someone who would further exacerbate tensions between different groups based on their race or religion. The same playbook is used over and over again with Trump.
What are Public Reactions to Trump’s Statements?
During his time in Miami, Mr. Trump lavished praise on “the wonderful” Senator Marco Rubio, calling him a friend and expressing confidence in his re-election in Florida. “You’re going to keep Ron DeSantis as governor, Trump said”.

In his 90-minute, complaint-filled speech, Mr. Trump blasted Democrats as soft on crime and boasted about Hispanic voters shifting toward the Republican Party, but he only mentioned his potential rival in 2024 once. It’s likely I’ll run for president again in 2024, he said.
According to Lainie Guthrie, 57, of Royal Palm Beach, who was also present at the Trump rally, Mr. DeSantis should have been there alongside the former president. She argued that Mr. Trump should be able to finish his first-term initiatives.
Whatever people’s opinions of him may have been, “he was doing a great job for our country,” Ms. Guthrie argued. He has the right to seek reelection. All credit for that goes to him. Audience members in Pennsylvania on Saturday laughed at and booed Mr. Trump’s attack on Mr. DeSantis.
University employee Jess Rhoades, 38, of Blair County, Pennsylvania, left Tuesday’s Trump rally feeling energized.
