Former President Donald Trump took a swing at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, giving him a shocking nickname.
Trump's comment about DeSantis came at a rally where he referred to the governor as "Ron DeSanctimonious."
Trump's harsh insult could be a sign of growing tension between the two, who could both be potential 2024 presidential candidates.
"We’re winning big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody’s ever seen before," Trump told a crowd in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
Trump then went down the list of other Republicans who could potentially challenge him in the 2024 presidential election.
"There it is, Trump at 71%, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10%," Trump told the crowd.
Trump continued, reading the approval numbers of various republican candidates.
"Mike Pence at 7, oh, Mike is doing better than I thought," Trump continued.
"Liz Cheney there’s no way she’s at 4%. There’s no way. There’s no way. But we’re at 71 to 10 to 7 to 4," Trump added.
"The jab from Trump comes as the two are widely considered the two top Republican contenders to clinch the Republican presidential nomination and reports have circulated about possible growing tension between the two camps," reported Fox.
"DeSantis dismissed rumors of a rift between him and Trump earlier this year saying that Trump is a 'friend of mine,'" reported Fox.
"He wants to see Republicans doing well," DeSantis told Fox News. "And I think when media is trying to act like he's upset at me for doing well, I think that's total bunk. I think they're just making it up."
