Democrats are in big trouble if Donald Trump runs for President against Joe Biden again in 2024.

But Donald Trump isn’t the only threat to Joe Biden’s reelection chances.

And Donald Trump’s former Chief of Staff just made one startling statement about Ron DeSantis running for President in 2024.

Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are the two most popular Republicans in America.

According to a recent Rassmussen poll, both Trump and DeSantis enjoy a 52 percent approval rating with voters.

Polls show Donald Trump continues to lead the field when it comes to the 2024 Republican Primary voters.

However, if Donald Trump decides not to seek a second term, the same polls show that Ron DeSantis would be the clear front-runner for the GOP nomination.

But many are starting to wonder what happens if both Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis run for President in 2024.

Right now, Ron DeSantis says his only focus is getting elected to a second term as Governor this fall.

And Donald Trump has said on multiple occasions that if he decides to run for President in 2024, he believes DeSantis will choose not to enter the race and run against him.

But that hasn’t stopped the pundits from speculating on a potential Trump versus DeSantis 2024 Republican Primary battle.

During a recent interview with Politico’s Playbook, Mick Mulvaney, who served as Chief of Staff and as Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Trump, handicapped the 2024 GOP Primary field.

In a startling move, Mulvaney dropped three potential candidates he believes could give Donald Trump a run for his money in a Primary race.

“DeSantis could give him a run for his money,” Mulvaney began. “Tim Scott can give him a run for his money,” he continued, before adding that “Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson could give him a run for his money.”

“It’s a short list,” he added.

Mulvaney saying he believes DeSantis could give Trump trouble wasn’t all that surprising given how wildly popular the Florida Governor is with GOP voters nationwide.

But not only did Tim Scott only receive 1 percent in the annual CPAC straw poll, a recent Harvard/Harris poll also showed him polling at just 2 percent in a hypothetical Republican Primary.

Of course, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson hinted at potentially running for office as far back as 2017, when he told GQ Magazine there was a “real possibility” of him running for President in 2020.

And during an interview last April, he reiterated his position, saying he “would consider a Presidential run in the future if that’s what the people wanted.”

Mulvaney concluded by saying there is one person he is certain can defeat Donald Trump, and that is Donald Trump himself.

“By the way, there’s one other person who could beat him – which is himself,” Muvlaney said, adding that “Donald Trump is sometimes his own worst enemy when it comes to campaigning.”

Right now, no one really knows for certain if Donald Trump will seek a second term again in 2024.

The former President isn’t expected to make an official announcement until after the November Midterm elections.

But as long as he and Ron DeSantis remain popular with voters nationwide, the press will continue to try to start a feud between the two.
