The former Republican presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, is ready for a face off with the former U.S. President Donald Trump in the race for the 2024 GOP primary.
Despite Donald Trump’s claims that the current Republican Party is not the same as it was a decade ago, Bush has decided to support Trump’s biggest opponent, GOP Governor from Florida, Ron DeSantis.

On Saturday, during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump made a bold claim that the GOP is:
“never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush.”
“We had a Republican Party that was ruled by freaks, neocons, globalists, open border zealots, and fools, but we are never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush!”
However, the former governor of Florida, Jeb Bush, is showing his support for DeSantis.
During a Fox Nation special on Gov. Ron DeSantis, Bush stated:
“There are people in public life that are kind of check-the-box politicians, and then there are others they want to serve, and Governor DeSantis is one of those.”
Bush also discussed his father, George H.W. Bush, and Gov. Ron DeSantis, touting about their experience as the team captains for the basketball team of Yale.
Bush also disclosed that he was quite impressed with DeSantis’ handling of criticism during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While praising DeSantis’ leadership skills as the Governor of Florida, Bush stated:
“They were trying to set him up, and he knew it. And he punched him in the nose.”
When Bush was asked if it is the right time for DeSantis to officially announce his presidential candidacy, he stated:
“I think it is. He’s been a really effective governor. He’s young. I think we’re on the verge of a generational change in our politics– I kind of hope so. I think it’s time for a more forward-leaning future-oriented conversation or politics as well.”
