Trump is reported to have branded Ron DeSantis a "dull" charisma free-zone as rumors swirl the former President is furious the popular Florida governor hasn't announced that he won't challenge Trump for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination.

Sources close to the former President said Trump has grown increasingly irritated by DeSantis in recent months, with Trump beginning to voice his frustrations to those in his inner circle.

"In the context of the 2024 election, he usually gives DeSantis a pop in the nose in the middle of that type of conversation," a source who recently spoke to Trump about DeSantis revealed.

"He says DeSantis has no personal charisma and has a dull personality," the source told Axios.

The two are among the most popular Republican figures in the country. With Trump eyeing another presidential run in 2024, many political pundits believe he is hired by DeSantis' interest in running against him and his growing popularity.

Trump is said to be bothered that DeSantis hasn't come out to say he wouldn't run against the former President if he did opt to launch another White House bid.

Trump hasn't yet announced his own bid, and isn't expected to do so until at least early next year.

Those close to the former President say they expect him to launch a second White House run - but also admit Trump may choose to act as a "kingmaker" for the next presidential candidate instead.

The source, who was not named or identified, confirms they have heard Trump regularly criticize DeSantis on more than one occasion.

The root of Trump's fury with DeSantis seems to stem from the fact that the Florida governor "won't say he won't run [in 2024]. ... The others have stated pretty clearly they won't challenge him," the source went on to say.

"Trump has been telling a range of aides a version of, he isn't getting the difference from DeSantis that he wants in the pre-2024 lead-up."

Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Trump tore into several politicians - DeSantis amongst them - who will not say whether they have had their COVID vaccine or booster, deeming them "gutless."

"I've taken it, I've had the booster," Trump stated.

"Many politicians - I've watched a couple of politicians be interviewed and one of the questions was 'did you get the booster,'" he continued. "The answer is yes but they don't want to say it, because they're gutless. You gotta say it, whether you've had it or not, say it.'
