Former President Donald Trump said that he is highly unlikely to put Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on his ticket, when asked about it by Newsmax.
"No, I think that would be a very unlikely alliance," Trump said.
"We have a lot of great people in the Republican Party. I've never thought of it; but you know some people every once in a while mention it, but that's about it," he said.
DeSantis is currently second to Trump in most polls and is expected to announce his own primary run by summer.
Trump has gained popularity in recent weeks as talk of indicting him on spurious charges in New York heats up, but that could be a short-lived effect.
Trump has taken credit for DeSantis's success and popularity but may regret now that he helped DeSantis along.
