Newt Gingrich, the former Republican House Speaker, took the time to share his thoughts on how President Trump has revolutionized the Republican Party. Speaking with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Gingrich emphasized how Trump has made the GOP the “party of working Americans,” an impressive feat that no other political leader has achieved in the past 100 years.

What’s amazing about Trump is that he is able to talk and connect with Americans of varying levels of education, from third, fourth, to fifth-graders, and helps them better understand his policies. But now, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, who is eyeing a presidential bid, faces a significant challenge. Despite holding a Yale degree, if he can’t connect with Americans on their level and articulate his policies in simple ways, he will have a difficult time competing against Trump.
Moreover, DeSantis will need to have a catchy, unforgettable slogan that will show his approach in Florida can make America stronger if he wants to succeed. If he can portray his willingness to take on “Big Business” and “Big Government,” he will likely draw a lot of support, as those institutions are highly distrusted based on polling data from Gingrich’s firm, America’s New Majority Project.
DeSantis’s biggest challenge, however, will undoubtedly be delivering crisp, understandable speeches at all his campaign events. Just recently, during a sit-down with Elon Musk, founder of Twitter, his intended message got confused and lost during a 20-minute blackout on the platform’s Spaces audio forum. The mishap resulted in a “DeSastrous” start, and this called into question how competent his campaign team is against the more organized and disciplined team backing Trump.
As expected, Trump didn’t waste time to capitalize on the opportunity. Shortly after DeSantis’s virtual announcement, Trump released a video where he shared clips of microphone feedback and silence at the DeSantis event, interspersed with speeches he previously gave. These actions highlight the dangers DeSantis would face if he is not careful in his messaging, and it is clear that Trump still has every intention of remaining the GOP’s leading candidate.
