President Donald Trump has announced that he is officially retiring the moniker ‘Ron DeSanctimonious’ that he had previously used for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Former President Donald Trump first used the nickname “Ron DeSanctimonious” for Ron DeSantis on November 5, 2022, three days before the midterm.
This occurred during a rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, where Trump was stumping for Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano and Senate candidate Mehmet Oz.
He mentioned this nickname while discussing his standing in the polls for the potential 2024 Republican primary nomination.

You said, ‘Will I be using the name Ron DeSanctimonious.’ I said that name is officially retired,” Trump said in a video circulated by Trump’s aide Margo Martin, on X.
