Ron DeSantis Announcing Presidential Bid On Twitter with Elon Musk
Ron DeSantis is making his presidential run official with the help of Elon Musk, jumping on the bird app with its owner to make the big announcement — something the tech mogul is, no doubt, seeing as a MAJOR win.
TMZ has confirmed … the current Florida Governor will join Elon in a Twitter spaces chat Wednesday to announce he is, indeed, throwing his hat in the 2024 presidential race.
Tech entrepreneur David Sacks will moderate the meeting, and DeSantis will drop his first campaign video around the same time.
As you know, Elon’s been pushing to get Twitter to become more like mainstream TV … after ex-FOX News host Tucker Carlson took to the platform earlier this month to say he’d be launching a “new version” of his show on Twitter … which Elon quickly embraced.
Following Tucker’s announcement, Elon called out Don Lemon — who’s also out of a gig — to have him come over to the same app and start his own show … digging at CNN’s ratings by adding, “Maybe worth a try. Audience is much bigger.”
Looks like Elon’s tryin’ hard to get as many eyes on his platform as possible, and if recent history is any indication … politics is the perfect way to do that.
As for Gov. DeSantis, announcing on Twitter seems like a shot across the bow of Donald Trump‘s campaign … as the ex-Prez used to be Commander-in-Chief of tweeting. Y’know, back before the Jan. 6 insurrection.
