Former president Donald Trump commented on fellow Republican primary challengers in a series of Truth Social posts.
First, Trump criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has not announced a 2024 presidential campaign as of yet.
“The problem with Ron DeSanctimonius is that he needs a Personality Transplant, and those are not yet available,” Trump said of the Florida Governor. “Almost all Congressmen and women that served with him, and knew him well, supported me, some of them surprisingly so because of their relationship with Ron.”
“I would say that, when it comes to lack of personality, Ron would be in a class with Asa Hutchinson, and that’s not good.”

“His Foreign trip was a total bomb—They didn’t even know what he was doing there!”
Hutchinson officially announced his 2024 presidential campaign late last month.
In a second post, Trump commented on fellow Republican presidential candidate entrepreneur and author Vivek Ramaswamy’s polling.
“I am pleased to see that Vivek Ramaswamy is doing so well in the most recent Republican Primary Poll,” Trump wrote, citing a CBS YouGov poll showing 5% of respondents considering voting for the entrepreneur.
Trump noted Ramaswamy was tied with former vice president Mike Pence at 5%: “[he] seems to be on his way to catching Ron DeSanctimonious.”

“The thing I like about Vivek is that he only has good things to say about ‘President Trump,’ and all that the Trump Administration has so successfully done–This is the reason he is doing so well,” Trump continued. “In any event good luck to all of them, they will need it!”
The former president officially launched his 2024 re-election campaign late last year.
Fellow Republican candidates including former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as well as former radio host and California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has been heavily speculated to be a 2024 presidential contender, is reportedly gearing up to announce a presidential campaign in mid-May, according to reports.
Last week, President Biden, 80, officially announced his 2024 re-election campaign.
“When I ran for president four years ago, I said ‘we’re in a battle for the soul of America,'” Biden told supporters. “And we still are. The question we’re facing is whether in the years ahead, we have more freedom or less freedom.”
