Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has dismissed rumors that he’s planning a 2024 presidential run. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, the Republican governor said “all the speculation around me is purely manufactured.”

“All the speculation about me is purely manufactured. I just do my job and we work hard,” said DeSantis. “I hear all this stuff and honestly it’s nonsense.”

This comes as President Donald Trump is slated to head to Iowa in October for a rally as speculation about a 2024 run continues to grow. Recent reports said a senior aide to Trump said it’s between 99 and 100 percent certain he’ll run again.

Rep. Jim Jordan also weighed in on a Trump potential run stating, “I think he’s gonna run. I want him to run. He’s proven he can take the heat.”

Meanwhile, the 45th president has signaled he’d consider DeSantis for a running mate should he decide to run again.

“Well, he’s a friend of mine. I endorsed Ron,” said Trump during 2018. “And after I endorsed him, he took off like a rocket ship. He’s done a great job as governor.”
