Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is planning to raise money for former President Donald Trump in the coming weeks, putting into action the commitment he made at a meeting with Trump last month to help his former rival for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the details have not been finalized and plans could still shift in the weeks ahead. Still, DeSantis is making calls to donors while his finance team works quickly to put together a schedule that would include stops in Florida and Texas, the people said.

DeSantis is taking concrete steps toward a political reconciliation with Trump, who for months taunted his GOP opponent as “DeSanctimonious” as the Florida governor argued Trump’s time had come and gone. The developments also show DeSantis’ effort to offer among his most prized assets — his prolific fundraising network — in a gesture that could pay dividends if he runs for president again in 2028, when Trump would be ineligible to run if he wins this November due to constitutional term limits.

DeSantis, Cruz, and McConnell all cucked for Trump. I can’t tell if it’s because they’re that weak-willed, or he’s got that much control of the party. Regardless, it’s insane.

Imagine Biden berating and belittling AOC or Bernie and then trying to get them to advocate for him. Not a fucking chance.

What makes them think that Donny won't change the constitutional term limits to... No limits? The guy wants to be the King of America. Kings don't have term limits.

Why would anyone in Texas care about him? If whatever Texas' governor came to Florida, I would be like, "Who is this guy?? And why is anybody listening to him?"

Is spineless turd that much of a career path in the GOP? Cruz, McConnell, DeSantis, Christie, Romney (for a time) and more bending the knee. Pathetic.

Donald should make him pronounce 'Thai food' properly at every campaign stop.
