Joe Biden expressed support for Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida on Thursday, a sure sign that many would argue is a “death blow” for GOP presidential candidate’s campaign.
During yesterday’s Republican Presidential Primary Debate, Biden tweeted out, “Couldn’t agree more” to a video clip of Ron DeSantis.
In the clip, DeSantis took a shot at Trump, saying, “Donald Trump is missing in action tonight.”
“He should be on this stage,” DeSantis said.
“He owes it to you to defend his record where they added 7.8 trillion to the debt.”
“That set the stage for the inflation that we have now,” he added.
Meanwhile, Trump was visiting a parts factory in Michigan to appeal to members of the United Auto Workers Union on strike.

United Auto Workers (UAW) members are currently striking against the Big Three, pushing for a new labor contract for increased wages against the soaring inflation and commitments that they won’t lose their jobs under Joe Biden’s Electric Vehicles (EVs) agenda.
Trump’s visit had the Democrats in panic mode, with one union adviser describing the move as “kinda genius.”
This will be the second debate Trump skipped after ditching the first primary debate last month, opting for a pre-taped interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Trump’s statement posted to Truth Social:
“New CBS POLL, just out, has me leading the field by “legendary” numbers. TRUMP 62%, 46 Points above DeSanctimonious (who is crashing like an ailing bird!), Ramaswamy 7%, Pence 5%, Scott 3%, Haley 2%, Sloppy Chris Christie 2%, “Aida” Hutchinson 1%. The public knows who I am & what a successful Presidency I had, with Energy Independence, Strong Borders & Military, Biggest EVER Tax & Regulation Cuts, No Inflation, Strongest Economy in History, & much more. I WILL THEREFORE NOT BE DOING THE DEBATES!”
Biden expressing support for Ron DeSantis shows he is no threat to the establishment, and it is the first time.

During the Surfside Condominium collapse, the two appeared very supportive of each other.

Earlier this month, Ron DeSantis Never Back Down PAC chief strategist Jeff Roe, admitted the campaign has just 60 days to Trump, demanding an additional $50 million from donors.
As The Daily Fetched reported:
Never Back Down also halted its paid door-knocking efforts in Super Tuesday primary states in what appears to be cost-cutting moves as it shifts resources into Iowa, including the $12 million ad-buy announced earlier this week.
“If you have an education, if you have higher income, if you read the Bible, and if you go to church regularly, you happen to be a DeSantis supporter,” Roe said.
The DeSantis campaign has failed to gain traction in polling and currently trails Trump by double digits in most state primary contests, so their plan to “stop Trump” is unlikely to succeed.
We also reported last month, a super PAC set up to back DeSantis closed after donors backed out because of ‘rookie s**t’ mistakes, while its founder announced he would switch to Trump.
Republican strategist John Thomas set up ‘Ron to the Rescue’ in November, securing financial commitments from mega-wealthy donors.
However, the donors began having second thoughts after the botched DeSantis campaign launched on glitch-ridden Twitter Spaces in May.
