The spot from the Remove Ron group mocks Trump over DeSantisâ€™ refusal, so far, to rule out a presidential bid. â€œWhatâ€™s the matter, Donald?â€ asks the narrator in the video shared online Friday. â€œIs it something Ron said? Or perhaps something he hasnâ€™t said yet? Am I right, Donald?â€
â€œRumor is, youâ€™re still waiting for those magic words from Ron,â€ the voiceover continues. â€œIsnâ€™t that so, Donald? But after all this time, if Ron werenâ€™t thinking of challenging you for president, donâ€™t you think he would have told you by now?â€
The ad warns Trump, who has dismissed reports of a souring in tensions between the pair as fake news, that time is running out and that if DeSantis wins a second term as governor this year, â€œHeâ€™s coming for you.â€
The Remove Ron group is â€œdedicated to taking down Ron DeSantis in 2022,â€ per its Twitter profile. Its chair is Florida â€œGrim Reaperâ€ lawyer Daniel Uhlfelder, who took to the stateâ€™s beaches to protest DeSantisâ€™ catastrophic handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
