Donald Trump is back to taking shots at Ron DeSantis again.
Trump now claims that DeSantis’ campaign is almost broke and he will fold up shop soon.
He did not cite any sources to back up his claim, but that has never stopped him before.
Trump Being Trump
Donald Trump has a massive lead in this race, but he knows those numbers will change rather dramatically if this becomes a head to head race.
It gets even tighter if all the other candidates back Ron DeSantis. If DeSantis and Haley decided to team up, that could really be a problem because Haley could help DeSantis win South Carolina.
That being said, don’t expect these attacks against DeSantis to stop anytime soon.
Trump posted on Truth Social, stating, “Ron DeSanctimonious has the Poll numbers of a wounded bird falling from the sky. I am up on him by 57 points, and going higher.
“He has proven to be a terrible and inept candidate who even fought Social Security and MediCare. He will SOON be out of money and dropping out of the race for President. After having single handidly gotten him elected Governor, with no thanks or glory, it has been a beautiful thing to watch. Good luck Ron!”
I really don’t see DeSantis folding up shop. According to recent reports, he just hauled in $15 million that stabilized his campaign, which was struggling over the summer.
DeSantis has since rebounded and he is now campaigning hard in early voting states.
Donald Trump is still the fundraising king, but most of his money is going to legal fees, so don’t be fooled by the big numbers.
Politico reported that Trump has $36 million on hand, but again, how much of that is tagged for legal fees?
Trump’s real legal problems have not even come to fruition yet, as most of his cases go to court next year, so we have to keep an eye on just how much Trump is campaigning to get a better idea of how much money will be going into his campaign and how much will be used for legal fees.
So far, the money going to legal fees has not hurt Trump, in fact, his supporters have seemingly opened up their wallets even more.
Economically, this winter is not expected to be a good one, so it will be interesting to see just how much the money starts drying up for everyone.
Also, keep in mind that this field will go down significantly after the third debate, so there will be fewer candidates going after the same pool of money, so I really don't expect cash to be a problem for any of them.
