Trump says he still ‘got more votes’ than DeSantis in Florida




  • Former President Donald Trump had previously remained quiet following the re-election victory of potential 2024 rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
  • Trump congratulated fellow Republicans on their victories but said that he still got more votes in Florida than DeSantis.
  • Trump also touted the performances of his endorsed candidates.

Former President Donald Trump took aim at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis once more, even as he congratulated fellow Republicans for their midterm election victories.

Trump posted on Truth Social, “Now that the Election in Florida is over, and everything went quite well, shouldn’t it be said that in 2020, I got 1.1 Million more votes in Florida than Ron D got this year, 5.7 Million to 4.6 Million? Just asking?”

Trump had previously remained quiet following DeSantis’s reelection victory, and the governor was also absent from Trump’s Election Day victory party at Mar-a-Lago. Even so, Trump later acknowledged that he did vote for DeSantis.

As both are speculated to be running for president in 2024, there has also been debate about the party splitting into multiple factions, with two camps for Trump or DeSantis, and those who do not support either of them.

Speaking with Fox News Digital on Wednesday, Trump celebrated his party’s “tremendous success.”

Trump, who had endorsed over 200 candidates, dismissed reports that he was “furious” with their performances. He said, “The people I endorsed did very well. I was batting 98.6% in the primaries, and 216 to 19 in the general election — that is amazing.

He continued, “All these guys that are winning are my people.” He pointed to important victories by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, and newly elected Ohio Sen. JD Vance.

Talking about Pennsylvania’s Senate race, he called Dr. Mehmet Oz a “great guy” who “worked very hard” but “had a lot of immovable forces against him.”

On Thursday morning, Trump declared, “While in certain ways yesterday’s election was somewhat disappointing, from my personal standpoint it was a very big victory — 219 WINS and 16 Losses in the General — Who has ever done better than that?”

Three Senate seats — Arizona, Georgia, and Nevada — are still awaiting results. These races could potentially decide the legislative majority.

In both Arizona and Nevada, Trump-endorsed candidates Blake Masters and Adam Laxalt, respectively, are trailing behind their Democratic opponents, incumbent Sens. Mark Kelly and Catherine Cortez-Masto. Still, media outlets have reported that the races are too close to call yet.


Georgia, meanwhile, will be heading to a run-off election and added weeks of campaigning as Trump-endorsed Herschel Walker battles against Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock.

Several political analysts have expected Trump to announce his presidential campaign soon after the midterms, but some of his advisers reportedly told him to wait until the run-off in Georgia.

    I have supported Trump all along but… He really is an arrogant, egotistical cactus needle, isn’t he? At least in this article he seems to care more about putting Donald First than putting America First. It doesn’t seem to care about splitting the party. In fact, I think this giant blow hole would actually run as a third party if he were not to get the Republican nomination. It seems like he would leave the US with Democrat tyranny rather than support anyone else from the GOP. Starting to worry about ’24 already.

      I agree, but part of the reason Biden won in 2020 in addition to stealing the election is that people could not stand Trump’s personality. I too wish he would put a sock in it. I have no problem with Trump going after Romney, McConnell and other RINOS and the left but DeSantus and Younkin are patriots and he needs to stop taking them down. That being said, if Trump is the nominee, I will vote for him or we will have another 2020. This country can’t survive anymore so hopefully someone in Trumps circle will tell him to put a lid on it. We are not voting for a Valentine but someone who can save this country and Trump did do a hell of a job when he was in office. We have to remember that. Are we willing to sell out our country to the communist left because we don’t like the way Trump talks – I’m not!

        What? Trump did “hell of a job while in office”??? He destroyed America’s very favorable image all across the globe! He angered all Europeans. He made most of the middle east and south asian people hate Americans! During his time millions of jobs were sent overseas to Philippines, India and some other countries. He split Americans at home. He tried to destroy our democracy by the events of Jan 6! He lied about his financial situation. He filled fraudulent tax returns. He destroyed the honor and respect of the highest office in the United States. He subtly supported the white supremacy activism, which in turn created many factions with the United States – the list goes on and on and on…and you say, “he did hell of a job”! It is mind bogling – only the misguided white supremists can support a person like him!

      I agree totally Barry,
      He needs to stay on his Island and retire! He lost Pennsylvania (PA) and that is a testimony of his “LOST Greatness!” The PA folks voted against Trump – both Independent and Republicans. The so called wins he is bragging about were and still were Republican’s. Take a close look at the winning percentages; many are lower than previous elections.
      I hope he stays out of Georgia.
      Also, he needs to stop publicly demeaning other Republicans no matter how he feels about them. He will not win the 2024 race if he is the GOP Candidate!

        You’re saying Republicans voted against Republican’s because of Trump, sorry I don’t buy that. The real reason Repubs lose is because Demoncrats outspend Repubs by a huge margin, and the mainstream Marxist media has a lot to do with it too.

    I will vote for Trump if he is the nominee but he needs to put a sock in it! Please, go after McConnell, Romney, Murkowski and the other RINOS and the democrats but stop shooting down patriots of this country because you feel they may be a contender in 2024. People are getting tired of your mouth and smacking down DeSantis who has done a great job in Florida. Who ever is in charge of what this man says, tell him to put a lid on it or he will lose another election because of his mouth!

    i will not vote for Trump I did the last time but his putting everybody down is not impressing me
    He is splitting the Republican party with his retoric Definitely a poor loser if he doesnt get his way
    i will work to defeat him if he runs again
    I admire what he did when he was President business wise but his mouth should have a lock on it
    he is disgusting with his remarks especially calling McCain a loser and a coward Our longest serving serviceman in captivity by the enemy
    Trump was a Draft dodger

    DeSantis just got elected Governor of Florida. Do you REALLY think he’s going to start a campaign for president? He has more integrity than to screw Floridians. Also, do you think he wants to subject his young family to the hatred and filth the Democrats will throw at them? REALLY?
