Trump made the remarks during an interview on Fox News with Sean Hannity on Thursday night, claiming there is no conflict between the two men and praising the governor’s leadership of Florida.
“I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to for a long time,” Trump said.
Trump and DeSantis have both been rumored as top contenders for the Republican ticket in 2024. Trump has fueled speculation of a comeback run on numerous occasions, but will unlikely make a public announcement until after the November midterm elections.
DeSantis has claimed he is focused on leading Florida, recently announcing his plans to run for reelection as governor of the state.
