Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren announced she has seemingly jumped off the Trump train and is now firmly in the DeSantis camp.
Lahren believes that Ron DeSantis has a better shot at beating the Democratic nominee than former president Trump.
On Thursday, Lahren made it clear who she is supporting this primary. While on “The Issues” with Elex Michaelson Lahren stared, “While I love Donald Trump, I love what he did for our country, I wish he was our president now, things would be a lot different.”
She then announced she has jumped ship, “I do believe that Ron DeSantis is our best bet to get back in that White House and to turn this country around.”
“So I am in the Ron DeSantis camp at this point. I think that he is our best chance. I love him at the governor of Florida. Apparently so do many Californians because they have flocked there and I think he’s going to be our best shot, a winner and a president,” she made her best attempt to sling her choice.
Michaelson tweeted the clip of Lahren pumping DeSantis over Trump. Lahren shared the clip and added, “I’m gonna get heat for this but I’m being honest, @RonDeSantis has a better shot at swaying Independent voters and that’s just the fact of the matter. Donald Trump was the best president of my lifetime but can he win a national election again- given everything (fair or unfair)- I am concerned.”
DeSantis formally announced he was running for President on May 24th in while talking with Elon Musk during a Twitter space.
According to the most recent polling on Real Clear Politics Trump is leading the pack by 32 points.
Lahren previously turned on conservatives when it was revealed she’s not as pro life as most.
Lahren endorsed Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for president during the 2016 primary. Her endorsement sounded familiar to the one she just made for DeSantis.
She told her viewers, “So here it is. I pick Marco Rubio for president. Here’s why: Rubio is young, tenacious, well-spoken, and, most importantly, he can actually win.” The clip was used in an ad for Rubio’s campaign.
Donald Trump does better when people underestimate him. His win in 2016 took many by surprise and he plans to do it once again in the next presidential election.
