‘DeSanctimonious’ Nickname ‘Officially Retired’ after DeSantis Quits 2024 Race, Endorses Trump

President Donald Trump has announced that he is retiring the “DeSanctimonious” nickname for Ron DeSantis after the Florida governor dropped out of the race for the 2024 Republican nomination.

DeSantis suddenly announced Sunday that he was quitting the race after his campaign failed to make any ground.

In a video posted on his X accounts, DeSantis revealed that it had become “clear” to him who voters wanted as their next president.

He then declared his endorsement for President Trump.

“It’s clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance,” the Florida governor said.

“They watched his presidency get stymied by relentless resistance, and they see Democrats using lawfare to this day to attack him.”

“If there was anything I could do to produce a favorable outcome, more campaign stops, more interviews, I would do it,” DeSantis said in the video.

“But I can’t ask our supporters to volunteer their time and donate their resources if we don’t have a clear path to victory.”


On Sunday, shortly after DeSantis dropped out of the 2024 presidential race, Trump stopped by his campaign’s New Hampshire headquarters.

Speaking to Granite State volunteers, the 45th president told the crowd as he was leaving that he would stop calling DeSantis “Ron DeSanctimonious.”

“You know…it’s retired,” Trump said to the volunteers.

“Okay, he just said, will I be using the name Ron DeSanctimonious?” he added to the room of people.

“I said, that name is officially retired. Thank you.”


Later on Sunday night, Trump told supporters in Rochester, New Hampshire that his opponent “ran a really good campaign.”

“I’d like to take time to congratulate Ron DeSantis and, of course, a really terrific person who I had gotten to know his wife, Casey, for having run a great campaign for president,” Trump said.

“He did. He ran a really good campaign.”

“I will tell you, it’s not easy,” he continued.

“They think it’s easy doing this stuff, right. It’s not easy.”

Trump also called DeSantis “gracious” by giving him his endorsement.
