Trump called Desantis' campaign start tough

Former U.S. President Donald Trump called the start of the campaign of his rival for the Republican presidential nomination, Florida Governor Ron Desantis, difficult.

“I think he had a rough start,” the former U.S. administration chief said, commenting on Desantis’ live Twitter appearance, which went off with serious technical glitches. The organizers of the online event were forced to interrupt the broadcast 20 minutes after the start because of the large influx of listeners, which numbered more than 540 thousand. At the same time, after the restart of the broadcast the number of those wishing to join noticeably decreased.

Trump noted that his campaign is doing well. “The polls are looking very good,” he stressed. CNN previously released data from an SSRS poll showing that 53 percent of respondents believe Trump is the Republican presidential nominee of choice. Desantis is supported by 26 percent of respondents.

On Wednesday, Desantis filed paperwork to run for the U.S. presidency, which will be held in the country in November 2024. The information was posted on the U.S. Federal Election Commission Web site. Later, the press service of the Republican published a video, where he listed the situation with migration, crime and low incomes among the main problems of the country.

The next presidential election in the United States will be held in November 2024. On April 25, incumbent U.S. President Joe Biden, a Democrat, said he would seek re-election to the nation’s highest office. Trump has announced that he will enter the race in November 2022.
