On multiple platforms, Stone published a video of his message to Trump and their meeting at Mar-a-Lago resort.
The clip reveals Trump greeting Stone, to which he responded, “God bless you,” after they embraced.
“Watch DeSantis,” Stone appears to say before then saying, “He’s a piece of [expletive],” as the clip ends.
One journalist appeared to say that Stone ultimately issued the expletive “s***” to end the sentence.
Stone has since continued making social media postings in response to the situation, implying that DeSantis is a traitor.
“I am a big believer in total loyalty,” Stone wrote on Gab. “Without the GOP primary endorsement of president Trump and the extraordinary effort made in the final days of the election by Trump to pull DeSantis over the finish line, Governor DeSantis would not be able to run for governor of Florida. While DeSantis has been a great governor, I think he should inform Trump that he will step down if the former president wants to run again in 2024. For this reason, I will continue to berate him for his disloyalty.”
Stone’s recent remarks have fueled rumors of a feud between Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Trump. Donald Trump has denied their existence, referring to DeSantis as being a “great guy” who is “doing an excellent job.” A few months back, he went even further in his comments on the issue, stating that attempts by actors in the establishment media to create a narrative depicting the two at odds are “completely fake news.”
Of course, it could be the case that DeSantis is a plant from the establishment. After all, he does seem to have a very easy time defeating Democrats in Florida. Could it be the case that those Democrats have been told to not fight DeSantis so hard? Giving the impression that he is fighting in order to set him up as the Anti-Trump candidate in 2024?
