Ron DeSantis's presidential campaign launch suffers technical issues
Ron DeSantis officially launched his 2024 presidential campaign on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk, but the event was plagued by technical issues, with the sound repeatedly dropping out. Donald Trump criticised DeSantis's campaign launch on Truth Social, and later posted a bizarre message that appeared to criticise DeSantis. DeSantis is seen as Trump's biggest rival for the Republican vote, but the latest polls show him trailing Trump. DeSantis is also facing criticism for his laws and policies, including his stance on Disney and the NAACP's advisory warning travellers that Florida is 'openly hostile' towards minorities.
