Trump mocks DeSantis’ Twitter issues at campaign launch

Former President Donald Trump mocked Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) over Twitter’s technical difficulties during his presidential campaign launch on the platform.

DeSantis’ Twitter space with CEO Elon Musk began with extreme technical difficulties as audio cut out repeatedly. They finally had to start a new Twitter space after several minutes of complications.

Trump used his own platform, Truth Social, and shared a video, pitting Twitter Space’s issues against his own campaign announcement at Mar-a-Lago in November in front of a room full of supporters and media.

He posted a second video mocking the launch:

The videos followed another post in which Trump dubbed DeSantis “Rob” and boasted that his social media platform, or “red button,” was superior to DeSantis’.

“’Rob’, my red button is bigger, better, stronger and works (TRUTH!), not yours! (from my conversation with soon-to-be friend Kim Jung Un of North Korea!),” the 45th president wrote.

DeSantis filed his paperwork to run for Federal Election Commission (FEC) chairman before the Twitter space. He also released an ad in which he touts a vision “to lead our great American comeback.”

The announcement came as two polls showed Trump leading DeSantis and the rest of the Republican primary field by a wide margin on Wednesday. A Quinnipiac University found Trump leading the pack with 56% support, while DeSantis was second with 25%. Similarly, a CNN-commissioned SSRS poll found Trump at 53% and DeSantis at 26%, while no one else eclipsed the double-digit numbers.
