  • GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and potential 2024 primary challenger Florida GOP Ron DeSantis nearly crossed paths Sunday  in early-balloting state Iowa.
  • DeSantis was giving speeches across the state and made a surprise stop at a BBQ joint in the city of De Moines.
  • Trump was set to hold a rally in De Moines but had to cancel it, citing a tornado warning in the area. But the explanation apparently didn’t stop widespread social media speculation whether Trump really had another reason.
