I’d only see Ramaswamy do it as his first presidential act.
DeSantis while pandering to the base is lying through his teeth, yeah he’ll renege on the promise. And hold it over the orange monkeys head and make him kiss ass.
I could see that. Otoh, it's maybe the worst thing he could do. There is no honor or loyalty in Trump, so once you've given him what he wants he will abandon and undermine you.
He's a nobody, no existing power center, so he's basing his appeal as being a Trump proxy, but once Trump is freed, then Trump will be THE shadow president and Rama will have no real power.
Additionally, I think there are plenty of silent, cowardly institutional Rs in the Congress that would be furious their Trump problem was finally solved, only to have it undone by some internet influencer con artist.
We can already see the hate he's getting from the establishment politicians on the debate stage.
Who ends his up ally? Nobody.
