Latest Updates on Trump’s Announcement of His Re-Election
Latest Updates on Trump’s Announcement of His Re-Election:The announcement of Trump’s re-election was met with mixed reactions from Republican office holders. A number of them urged the president to delay the announcement until after the Dec. 6 Georgia Senate runoff. However, Trump did not heed their advice. Biden was more blunt, speaking about a reported missile strike on Poland from the site of a G-20 economic conference in Bali. In a statement, Biden said that the U.S. would support an investigation into Russia’s involvement in the incident.
Impact on Georgia governor Ron DeSantis’ future plans
The announcement of Donald Trump’s candidacy has made the future of Georgia governor Ron DeSantis very uncertain. The former tea party favorite has reached the highest level of Republican politics in a decade and a half. Him has a deep commitment to conservative principles and a keen understanding of the power centers within the party. He has also managed to transition from tea partyer to Trumpista. He has adopted the rhetoric and policies of Trumpism, and has even embraced the social-distancing policies of the president during the coronavirus pandemic.
While some say that DeSantis is merely pandering to Trump, the truth is far more complex than that. The Georgia governor is a highly intelligent person, who had already developed reactionary suspicions about democracy before Trump’s announcement. He was a Harvard and Yale graduate who had written a book warning of the dangers of a megalomaniacal president. Despite his intellectual sophistication, DeSantis’ reputation has been hurt by a lack of personal relationships.
While his political future is still uncertain, DeSantis is weighing his options. As a state governor, he has been maintaining a small circle of advisers to evaluate his options. His “brain trust” consists of himself and his wife, Casey. They have been conscious of the fact that they have a limited window to make a move in 2024. But after Tuesday’s announcement, that window opened up wider than they previously thought.
Despite his opposition to the president’s controversial announcement, DeSantis’ courting of right-wing extremists and his no-enemies-to-the-right strategy has won him the support of conservatives. During the Trump era, DeSantis has allied himself with conservatives, and has been outspoken in his criticism of Donald Trump’s stance on the LGBT community. However, his actions in Florida have had the opposite effect.
After Trump’s announcement, the timing of DeSantis’ presidential campaign is unclear. He’s reportedly put his super PAC plans on hold before the midterm elections. Although the timing is uncertain, many elected Republicans have already called for the party to move on from the controversial candidate. Meanwhile, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu has said that announcing a presidential run before the holidays would be politically unwise.
DeSantis’ future plans following Trump’s announcement are unclear, but it is a good sign that he is working toward a progressive agenda. In 2011, he published his book Dreams From Our Founding Fathers, which has received little media attention. Despite being out of print, it gives readers a window into DeSantis’ worldview.
