'He was dead': Trump swipes at 'very disloyal' DeSantis at golf tournament
Former President Donald Trump took a brief break while hitting the links at his Washington, DC golf club on Thursday to swipe at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who officially kicked off his bid for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination on Wednesday.
"Are you angry, Mr. President, that Ron DeSantis entered the race?" Universal News Forever reporter Kyle Mazza asked Trump.
"No, I think he's a very disloyal person because he was dead. He was looking for jobs and uh, I endorsed him and he went up many points. He was thirty points down at least, maybe more than that. He was dead. So I think he's very disloyal, but I don't care," Trump replied.

"Look, a poll just came out in Iowa. He saw the one that just came out a little couple of minutes ago. I'm leading by thirty or forty points. I don't mind that at all. But no," Trump added, "I think he's very disloyal, but he's got no personality. If you don't have personality, politics is a very hard business."
