Republican Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantisYesterday he officially announced his election campaign US Presidential Election 2024. But the surprise comes not from the decision to challenge Trump in the Republican primary, but from the nature of the announcement, which was broadcast live on the evening of May 24 Twitter Sections along with the billionaire social media owner, Elon Musk.
Ahead of the live broadcast on Musk’s Twitter profile, which started almost half an hour late due to technical problems and Server Congestion, DeSantis said he wants to run to “lead the great comeback of the United States.” The Republican governor aspires to become the first Italian-American president of the United States, thereby evading the nomination donald trump, who didn’t miss the opportunity to poke fun at his rival for technical problems on Twitter.
Technical issues mar DeSantis’ debut
The new man of the American right has decided to run for office on the Twitter social network during a conversation with the new owner, including his great supporter Elon Musk. So far so good, except that the live broadcast of the big announcement, hosted by venture capitalist David Sacks, got messed up multiple times due to a technical glitch.
“We broke the internet,” Sacks tried to downplay the technical glitches that ruined the Florida governor’s inauguration announcement. The Democratic President Joe Biden he insisted on making an ironic remark. In a post on his Twitter account, the US President urged Democratic voters to donate to his re-election campaign, writing: “This link works“.
The comment from the former President and Republican candidate has also arrived: donald trumpwho wrote of his social truth, “his shirt collar is too loose” after the former president accused “Ron DeSanctus” of “disloyal” in other posts and branded him “Rino” – the nickname given to the “fake Republican” are defined pejoratively.
As if that wasn’t enough, the former White House tenant also joked about the technical issues that characterized the live broadcast on Twitter: “Wow! The launch of DeSanctis on Twitter was a disaster! His entire campaign will be a disaster.
Twitter, the American right-wing social network?
The political positioning of musk it is a matter of debate. That’s what it said in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal. In another recent interview with CNBC, the ubiquitous billionaire admitted he voted for President Biden in 2020, but this time the Twitter patron seemed to have taken his bearings against the Republicans.
In an interview with CNBC last week, the Tesla founder publicly stated that he would prefer “a normal president.” But be careful, it doesn’t support neither Trump nor Biden. And on previous occasions, Musk has publicly endorsed DeSantis, directly on his social media platform, Twitter. While Musk describes himself as moderate, when it comes to his political stance, another high-profile friendship is worth noting. This is the anchor who just got fired from Fox News, the ultra-conservative anchor Tucker Carlsonwhich announced a few days ago that it intends to launch its Fox-style broadcast directly on Twitter.
