The news came as a disappointment to many MAGA voters and was mocked by several others online. Some Twitter users also wondered if the announcement might work in favor of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is expected to run against Trump for the GOP nomination in 2024.

The former president’s approval rating was at its lowest level in seven years about a day before the release of his digital trading cards. A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found that 59 percent of registered voters had a negative opinion of him.

gionet tweeted shortly after Trump’s announcement that the former president could not win the 2024 nomination “with the amount of base he’s lost.” The internet personality has also shown his support for rapper Kanye West, aka Ye, in the next presidential election.

“We don’t care about Israel, we don’t care about trading cards, tax cuts and lgbtqxx, we want a Christ First policy for our nation without exception!” Gionet wrote.

Gionet, classified as a white supremacist by the Southern Poverty Law Center, was banned from Twitter in 2017 when the platform’s former leadership worked to remove racist users.

However, he was reinstated on the platform last Sunday, adding to the list of controversial profiles that Twitter CEO Elon Musk has reinstated since he took over the company in late October.
