Even Lara Trump was baffled by Trump’s bizarre ‘red button’ speech to DeSantis
Donald Trump’s mystifying ‘red button’ message to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (right) left even those closest to him at least a little puzzled.
“I don’t know exactly what he means,” his daughter-in-law Lara Trump admitted on Fox News on Thursday.
The former president released a series of angry and in some cases downright bizarre messages after DeSantis announced he was challenging Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
But perhaps most disconcerting was the “red button” message.
This appeared to be a reference to a 2018 tweet from Trump aimed at North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un warning that his nuclear launch button “is much bigger and more powerful than his, and my button works!”
But how that relates to DeSantis is anyone’s guess – although Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump, tried.
“I guess he means Truth Social was working and Twitter clearly wasn’t,” she said. “And that was maybe a bit of a mistake when you have such a high-profile deployment of your presidential campaign to try something new, I guess you have to give Ron DeSantis credit for that.”
