During his pre-event remarks at his New Hampshire political rally on Sunday night, Donald Trump briefly mentioned his opponent, Governor Ron DeSantis, who had suspended his campaign earlier in the day.

DeSantis started off as the early favorite to face Trump in the primary, and the competition quickly became acrimonious and violent. Withering criticism from his Republican opponents and a focused media attention, DeSantis kept losing ground. Following his close second place finish in Iowa earlier last month, DeSantis turned his attention to South Carolina while Haley and Trump fought for New Hampshire.

DeSantis quickly declared the suspension of his candidacy and backed Trump on Sunday, starting on Saturday by canceling his Sunday media engagements.

At his MAGA event in New Hampshire, Trump refrained from calling DeSantis "Desanctimonious," "Meatball," or any of the several derogatory terms he had popularized for the governor of Florida. Instead, he commended the governor for a "great campaign."

Before we start, let me say how proud I am of Ron DeSantis and his wonderful wife Casey, whom I have had the pleasure of getting to know. They both ran excellent campaigns for president, Trump added. "He did." He had an excellent season.

The MAGA crowd, which has been supporting Trump for months when he called DeSantis a liar and a phony, cheered the comments of the outstanding campaign.

"It's not simple, I assure you. They believe that doing something is simple, don't they? It's not simple," Trump said.

However, as you are aware, he departed the campaign route today at 3 p.m.; at this time, he was really kind and gave me his endorsement. Therefore, thank you," he said. "Thank you, and I'm excited to collaborate with Ron and everyone else to take down Crooked Joe Biden." We'll need to remove him. We need to remove him. He has greatly increased the risk to our nation.

Once again, Trump congratulated DeSantis on his withdrawal and thanked him. "I would like to express my gratitude to Ron and commend him on his excellent work," said Trump. It's not an easy scenario. It's not an easy task.
