Trump stays silent on 2024 rival DeSantis’s landslide win as he now outpolls him in Florida

‘Get ready’: Trump says he’s ‘very likely’ to run for president again in 2024

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis has entered a second term despite an ominous threat from Donald Trump before the election, according to forecasts by The Associated Press.

Mr. Trump had warned that Mr. DeSantis could “injure himself very seriously” if he tries to run for president in 2024, as many people have speculated that he could.

Some political agents and pundits see Mr. DeSantis, who achieved national fame by fueling culture wars over race and gender in Florida schools, as a younger, slicker, less gaffe-prone version of Mr. Trump.

Mr Trump still hadn’t congratulated Mr DeSantis over 90 minutes later AP shouted the race, though he had told reporters earlier in the day that he had voted for him in his native Florida.

Meanwhile, the former president himself wasted no time pushing baseless claims of voter fraud and calling on his followers to protest before the mid-term polls are even closed.

How Trump’s Misleading Claim About Voting Problems in Detroit Spread

It’s not just Trump making misleading claims about voting problems in Detroit.

Kristina Karamoa Republican running for Michigan’s Secretary of State heard reports that some Detroit voters had been told they had already cast their votes as evidence in support of her recent lawsuit for alleged corruption in the counting process. city.

Karamo’s tweet, based on a report by local journalist Charlie Langton, failed to mention that these voters were not prevented from voting and that election officials had promised to ensure such votes were counted.

Hours later, the city said it had traced the problems to an “innocent data error” in a system designed to prevent double voting.

That didn’t stop Ms. Karamo’s claims from spreading far across the pro-Trump universe on social media, thanks in large part to Mr Trump and his maverick Dinesh D’Souza.

According to the Election Integrity Partnership, a coalition of disinformation researchers, the claim has been circulated not only in English, but also in French, Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin.

Ms Karamo’s lawsuit was dismissed Monday by a Michigan judge, who said she had “failed dramatically” to support her arguments with “a shred of evidence”.

Opinion: Trump wraps up midterms with lies and self-obsession

To write for The independent‘s Voices section, Andrew Buncombe takes a look at Donald Trump’s characteristically gruesome way to close out the mid-term campaign:

If the former president was slow to get back on the electoral path, he has more than made up for it since appearing endlessly over the past 18 months, relentless with his false claims of voter fraud and victimization.

On Monday night, he returned to Ohio for a final two-hour election rally.

And as with the summer 2021 event, the speech he delivered on Monday was filled with lies, insults and an obsession with himself that seems to have no limit.

DeSantis wins Florida despite Trump threat

It is estimated that Mr. DeSantis won the victory over Demorat Charlie Crist, securing a second term and cementing his influence and popularity among the Republican base.

The win may only fuel speculation that he could challenge Mr Trump for the 2024 presidential nomination, given his success in making himself a national figurehead for America’s culture wars over race and gender in schools.

Mr. Trump had ominously claimed that Mr. DeSantis “could seriously injure himself” if he runs away, while Mr. Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, said, “Just stay where you are. You’re doing a great job in Florida.”

Mr. DeSantis now has four more years in office, but of course that wouldn’t stop him from stepping down if he thinks he has a shot at the White House.

So far, Mr. Trump has not congratulated Mr. DeSantis on his win.

Trump lawyer starts dispute over interim results

Christina Boba former OAN host who serves as one of Donald Trump’s attorneys in the Mar-a-Lago affair appeared on the Trump-backed Right Side Broadcasting Network Monday night as her boss prepared for his Ohio meeting — adding to the chorus of right-wing voices already telling a story of Democratic electoral misdemeanor if the results of the midterm elections don’t turn in favor of Republicans by the early hours of Wednesday.

This projection for an acceptable number of votes is completely arbitrary and rests on a template conspiracy theory that Democrats will somehow tamper with the votes after all the ballots have been completed – which in turn provides a starting point to check the validity of all mail. into doubt. ballots, which are usually added to the counts later in the counting process, tend to favor Democrats, and in some states they can be added to the total number well after the personal ballot is closed.

“Save BIG on MY CUSHION products NOW!” tweeted the Hungarian-American radio host Tuesday evening, offering followers a personalized discount code for MyPillow.com.

Trump told a crowd at the midterms meeting that former First Lady Melania Trump had dismissed the tawdry allegations in the Steele dossier, the infamous and now largely debunked investigative dossier of former British spy Christopher Steele about the Trump campaign’s alleged contacts with Russia. did not believe.
