Trump made a surprise visit to the Downtown House of Pizza in Fort Myers, Florida, after speaking at the Lincoln Reagan Dinner for Lee County Republicans on Friday.
Video of the incident shows Trump standing at the cash register of a local pizzeria to a crowd around him saying, “Enjoy your pizza, enjoy your pizza!”
Trump was joined by Representative Byron Donalds of Florida, who endorsed Trump earlier this month.
Another video of the event shows Trump taking a bite of a piece before joking to the crowd, “Does anyone want that piece I ate?”
In a new Wall Street Journal poll released Friday, Trump has a 14-point deficit to Florida Gov. and a 13-point lead in the Republican presidential primary in four months.
Trump, who launched his third consecutive White House campaign in November, has seen his position as the Republican front-runner solidify in recent polls, especially after Republicans rallied around him because he Became the first former president in history to be impeached.
Trump now leads DeSantis among GOP voters, 51% to 38%, according to a Wall Street Journal poll.
DeSantis has not officially announced his intention to run for president in 2024, but is expected to launch his campaign sometime after the Florida State Legislature expires next month.
Behind the scenes, DeSantis has already taken several steps to launch the campaign, including adding staff in Tallahassee, Florida.
