Sarah Palin says DeSantis should stay out of 2024: ‘Our president someday, but not right now’

Any number of candidates may jump in to challenge former President Donald Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination but, when it comes to the most buzzworthy name on the list, former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) provided her reason for him to stay out of it.

The one time vice presidential nominee joined Newsmax host Eric Bolling on Tuesday’s episode of “The Balance” to discuss a number of topics like network deplatforming and President Joe Biden’s response to the Chinese spy balloon and other objects entering American airspace. When the discussion turned to the 2024 election, Palin seemed to follow President Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment while still encouraging Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) to sit the contest out.

“Do you think DeSantis jumps in?” Bolling asked after they had discussed former United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announcing her candidacy.

“DeSantis doesn’t need to. I envision him as our president someday, but not right now,” she offered. “Everybody I speak with in Florida, they all love him. And he does set the tone for, I’d say every other governor in the nation. I think he’s our best governor and he should stay governor for a bit longer. He’s young. You know, he has decades ahead of him where he can be our president.”

As many believe America’s Governor is the only solid contender against Trump for the nomination, it is expected that others who throw their name in will be eyeing a spot in the next administration as VP or a cabinet secretary. The host turned the conversation toward that topic by raising Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s (R-Ark.) response to Biden’s State of the Union address.

“She’s fantastic. She, I believe bumped herself up to everyone’s VP ticket choice,” he contended. “What do you think?”

“Well, I think — I’m assuming it’s gonna be Trump that’s the nominee,” Palin said. “Trump needs to choose somebody who, like him, has nothing to lose. What more can they do to that person personally, or verbal attacks, or anything else on family? That person has been through the wringer, so they know what they’re getting into. And that person then can just focus on doing what’s right for the people. Actually governing how they campaign. Doing what they’re expected to do as elected.”

The way she answered the question led Bolling to ask, “Are you describing yourself?”

To that, Palin, who brought herself back into the political fray with a failed run for Congress in 2022, was noncommittal, but left the door open to the possibility and said, “Not necessarily…However, I’ll tell you, the opportunity that I had to run with someone who wasn’t as commonsense constitutional conservative as I, and I think the majority of Republicans were, but still having the opportunity to form a team like that in running and offering ourselves up in service to America — oh my goodness — no greater honor, no greater opportunity. The world vision that you’re able to have after such an experience, it bodes well for future experiences.”

The host didn’t drop the subject, and instead asked the governor if she had met with Trump to discuss any of these matters.

“What President Trump and I have talked about,” she concluded on the subject, “is kind of the same thing that we’re talking about.”
