Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis confirmed during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures that he would not serve as Donald Trump's vice president if asked.
Anchor Maria Bartiromo asked DeSantis, “If President Trump came to you and said let’s partner up, you be my VP would you do it?"
DeSantis responded by saying, "No, I’m running for president. We need somebody that can serve two terms. We need somebody that can win states like Georgia and Arizona, which President Trump cannot do or did not do, even though candidates like McCain and Romney had no problem winning those states. We need somebody who, and I’m the only one running including Donald Trump, everything I’ve promised the voters that I would do as governor of Florida, I’ve delivered on."
It's good to see DeSantis sticking to his guns despite the fact that his campaign is behind Trump by double digits. DeSantis is committed to fighting to the very end which on its own is admirable.
However, it seems that DeSantis won't have to worry about turning Trump down as the former president answered a question about his potential pick by saying of the current primary field, "They’re all job candidates. They’ll do anything, secretary of something. They even say VP. I don’t know. Does anybody see any VP in the group? I don’t think so."
DeSantis has done good work in Florida, and it might be best that he stays there. Whoever wants to be Trump's running mate will have to be of exceptionally strong character to support Trump and fend off Democrats.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
