(New York) This is like watching the political version of the HBO series Game of Thrones.
Released at 7:00 p.m.
The action of the most recent chapter takes place in Florida, where two strong Republican leaders live together with difficulty. The Lord of Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump, wants to bend the knee of his adopted state governor, Ron Desantis, for example, as did the last king of the North, Doreen Stark, before Akon the Conqueror.
But the young master of Tallahassee denies this submission to the former head of the White House, saying it would be a recognition of his authority and a testament to his loyalty.
The latter chapter will reveal who will survive the Trump-Descentis fight.
If the scenario seems a bit exaggerated, one of them will be elected governor for a second term next November, with the exception of recent headlines in the American press about alleged friction between the two.
“Who’s King of Florida?” New York Times. “Will Trump relinquish his throne to Desantis? “, The magazine was amazed at its role New Republic.
Susan McManus, a political scientist and Emeritus professor at the University of South Florida, thinks she understands what this exaggeration means.
“The tug-of-war between these two Republican symbols has attracted all the attention because the national media already predicts that Governor Desantis will be easily re-elected in 2022. So they see the potential battle between Trump and Desantis for the Republican. The 2024 presidential appointment is very mysterious and newsworthy.” He said Press.
Is he a “cowardly” politician?
Irritability, especially with Donald Trump’s Ron Desantis, no longer seems to manifest itself only in person.
So, in an interview aired on the conservative channel OAN on January 11, the former president described politicians as “cowards” who refuse to respond when asked if they have received a third dose of the drug. Vaccine against COVID-19.
He did not name the governor of Florida, but was one of the last major Republicans to refuse to give direct answers to questions on the matter.
Unusual fact, a few days later, in an interview with right-wing podcasts, Ron Desandis gave the impression that he wanted to respond to Donald Trump. He regretted not speaking out loud and clearly against the Trump administration’s decision to “lock up the country at the onset of the epidemic.”
“If I had known what I know now, I would have spoken so loudly,” he said.
At the same event, the governor of Florida attacked a lot more time and D.C.R. His “liberal” actions in the fight against Republican pet Anthony Fauci and Govt-19. But his critique of the former president’s epidemic management has not gone unnoticed in the media-political class.
In Florida, this is a different story.
It was not possible for many Floridians to focus much on this fight right now, as they had hoped it would happen in the first place.

Because before training in law as a military lawyer and federal prosecutor, no one in Florida doubted the presidential ambitions of Ron Desandis, who studied at two major universities, Yale and Harvard.
Donald Trump has always considered that the former representative of Florida would never have been elected governor of this state without his support. So the annoyance he personally expresses these days is because his supporter refuses to say “magic words” that many potential Republican presidential candidates have already repeatedly said in public.
“I wonder why that person did not say he would not run against me,” the former president told several members of his entourage. New York Times.
The list of Republican “presidential” candidates who have already uttered the magic words includes South Dakota Governor Christy Noam, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, another Florida Senator Rick Scott and Missouri Senator Josh Howley.
On the other hand, with the exception of Ron Desantis, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and former Vice President Mike Pence have not ruled out Donald Trump running as a Republican candidate. In 2024.
However, opinion polls suggest that none of them is more popular with Republican voters than Ron Desantis.
Should Donald Trump personally insult the Florida governor in public? “He says Disantis has no personal charisma and a dull personality,” someone close to the former president told the Axios site anonymously.
This detail explains in part why some Republican donors prefer the Master of Tallahassee to Lord Mar-a-Logo.
But this explanation does not explain why Ron Desantis refuses to bend the knee.
