Americans constantly watch politics play out on the nightly news and across numerous social media platforms. But for Roger Stone, it seems that his entire life has been nothing but politics. Playing a crucial role in how politics are presented today, Stone’s predictions of what may happen in Washington, D.C. sometimes find themselves a reality. Unlike the Democrats, who struggle to find a person to help propel them into the future, the GOP is overflowing with prime candidates for the 2024 Presidential election. The top two as of now are former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. But while some wish both men would run together, Stone admitted to Alex Jones that they will, in fact, run opposite of each other with DeSantis supposedly announcing his run after the 2022 midterm elections.
Although 2024 is still two years away, Republicans are already planning for their chance to retake the White House. Speaking with Alex Jones, Roger Stone claimed, “I happen to believe that Gov. Ron DeSantis, the Florida governor – my governor – intends to announce his candidacy literally, immediately, after the election, and I think [Trump] needs to remain mindful of that. I still think it is more likely than not that he will be a candidate…That’s not just my instinct, that’s hard intelligence and, by the way, as President Donald Trump has said, Ron DeSantis has the right to do that.”
A few months ago, rumors circulated that Donald Trump was going to announce his bid for President in July. Knowing his love for America, the timing seemed perfect with it being around the 4th of July, but that moment never came. According to Roger Stone, the reason for Trump delaying the announcement was due to not wanting to influence the 2022 midterm election. Stone also targeted Senator Lindsey Graham as a RINO working with the Democrats. “I think Lindsey Graham – a classic RINO – working with the Democrats to make abortion front-and-center in this election. All elections are about the incumbent party, about the job being done by congressional Democrats in combination with the Biden White House.”
As for those Republicans who view a DeSantis/Trump ticket as a solid win for the GOP, Roger Stone dropped some knowledge about the problems that arise with such an idea. “You cannot have a president and a vice president from the same state because, if you do, you would forfeit the electoral votes of Florida 27 votes – that’s too precious for us to do.”
Users commented on Stone’s remarks, writing, “Right now, I’d vote for DeSantis over Trump. DeSantis handled the pandemic b.s. well. I’d certainly wait to hear more on his policies and plans before being 100% certain. But make no mistake, if you think the Democrats and their media allies will give DeSantis better treatment than Trump, think again. The Democrats have declared war on all Republicans and they don’t care if they break laws.”
