RON ENDS RUN: DeSantis Out of 2024 Race, Supports Donald Trump for President [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.21.24

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has suspended his 2024 presidential campaign.

According to a New York Post report, Ron DeSantis has ended his run for the White House and has thrown his endorsement behind former President and 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

“Following our second-place finish in Iowa, we’ve prayed and deliberated on the way forward. If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome — more campaign stops, more interviews   I would do it,” DeSantis announced in a video address.

“But I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time, and donate their resources if we don’t have a clear path to victory,” the 45-year-old added. “Accordingly, I am today suspending my campaign.”

DeSantis has endorsed Donald Trump for president.

“It’s clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance. They watched his presidency get stymied by relentless resistance, and they see Democrats using lawfare to this day to attack him,” DeSantis said Sunday. “While I have had disagreements with Donald Trump, such as on the coronavirus pandemic and his elevation of [Dr.] Anthony Fauci, Trump is superior to the current incumbent, Joe Biden. That is clear.”

Watch DeSantis’ video message below:

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Trump said he was “very honored” to have DeSantis’ endorsement.

“I look forward to working together with him to beat Joe Biden, who is the worst and most corrupt president in the history of our country,” the former president added.

In a separate statement, the Trump campaign insisted: “It is now time for all Republicans to rally behind President Trump to defeat Crooked Joe Biden and end his disastrous presidency.

“Nikki Haley is the candidate of the globalists and Democrats who will do everything to stop the America First movement. From higher taxes, to decimating Social Security and Medicare, and to open borders, she represents the views of Democrats more than the views of Republicans,” the statement added. “It’s time to choose wisely.”
