For years, most of us figured there couldn't be anyone more polarising than Donald Trump in US politics.
He wanted to build the wall, he blocked refugees and travellers with passports from Muslim-majority countries from entering the US, said a variety of extremely sexist remarks about women, was "the central cause" of the Capitol riots and has been found liable for sexual abuse.
This is, of course, just the tip of the iceberg.
Alas, he's now running again for US president in 2024. But there's a fellow Republican that could be Trump's undoing. So, what do we know about this new candidate running for the Republican presidential nomination?
His name is Ron DeSantis, Florida's Governor who is well known for his ultra-conservative politics and harsh laws, vowing to destroy anything he deems "woke". This week, he confirmed he's also vying for the Republican presidential nomination.
Once considered 'Trump-lite', DeSantis is now slowly but surely making his brand even more conservative than Trump's politics. And that's a hard thing to do.
