Trump Furious After McCarthy Interview And Fundraising Efforts

( – Former President Donald Trump is reportedly angry at Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy after saying that he doesn’t “know the answer” to the question of whether the former president was the best candidate to beat President Biden in the 2024 presidential election in a June 25 CNBC interview.

After reportedly hearing of Trump’s anger, the California Republican called the former president to quickly apologize. In an additional consolation to Trump, McCarthy’s campaign staff sent out requests for donations saying that the former president is the “STRONGEST opponent to Biden!”

The sudden 180-degree reversal from McCarthy can perhaps be seen as Trump’s continuing predominance over the Republican Party, having the ability to force the Speaker of the House of Representatives to walk back on prior statements.

The news comes as Trump has been known to be uniquely concerned about loyalty, even though many in American politics typically dismiss such an idea. Trump told Fox News host Brett Baier that he was “deeply insulted” over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to run against him in the Republican presidential primary.

Trump told Baier in the interview that he considers himself the reason for why DeSantis was even elected as governor in Florida in the first place. The former president has since coined insulting nicknames for the governor, such as “Rob DeSanctimonious,” intending to accuse the governor of thinking he’s much better than he actually is.

Trump continues to dominate in GOP 2024 nomination polls, with the former president polling over 50% of the would-be primary vote, according to the RealClearPolitics national average. DeSantis, his biggest challenger by far, is polling at a meager 21.5%.

Interestingly, however, RealClearPolitics does show DeSantis to be a stronger candidate polling-wise in a general election, with the governor polling consistently better than Biden as opposed to a hypothetical rematch between the president and his predecessor.

The Trump campaign also continues to be burdened by a serious federal indictment, in which the former president has been charged with 37 felony counts related to the mishandling of classified documents.
