Ron DeSantis Firmly Declares He Will Decline an Offer to Be Donald Trump’s Vice Presidential Candidate

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has stated that he would not entertain the idea of becoming vice president if former President Donald Trump were to extend the offer.

During an interview on ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ with Maria Bartiromo, the presidential candidate from Florida firmly expressed that he currently has no intentions of serving as Trump’s vice president.

‘No, I’m running for president,’ DeSantis told the FOX News host bluntly.

DeSantis’ concise response follows his significant 31-point deficit to the former president in a recent Fox Business poll of GOP Caucus voters in Iowa. This marks the second occasion where Governor DeSantis has expressed reluctance regarding the vice presidential position, having previously conveyed to Newsmax that he identifies more as an executive figure.

Throughout his appearance, DeSantis emphasized his lack of interest in assuming a secondary role in the upcoming election.

‘We need somebody that can serve two terms,’ he said.

‘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,’ DeSantis continued.

DeSantis’ statement follows recent remarks from Trump in which he took a dig at fellow Republicans, suggesting he didn’t perceive any potential vice presidential candidates among the current race contenders.

‘They’re all job candidates,’ Trump said on Wednesday.

‘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,’ he said.
