DeSantis is thought to be former President Donald Trump’s most capable opponent, despite the fact that he hasn’t formally declared his candidacy.
The Russo-Ukrainian conflict was the topic of a questionnaire that Republican contenders and potential presidential candidates answered on March 13, 2023, and the results were publicized on Twitter by Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
DeSantis responded, “Although the U.S. has so many important national interests, being embroiled in a territorial dispute with Russia and Ukraine isn’t one of them.”
The Florida Governor continued, “The Biden administration’s basically “blank check” sponsorship of this fight for as long as it takes, without any stated objectives or responsibility, diverts attention away from our country’s most urgent problems.”
Following Russia’s military intervention against Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the Biden administration has given Ukraine billions in military aid. The aid is intended to trap Russia in a protracted geopolitical quagmire.
When asked if the United States should back regime change in Russia, Trump replied, “No. The United States needs a new government, and that is what we should support. We are in this mess thanks to the Biden administration.”
Here, Trump is right. The true regime change that is required must take place in Washington, DC. A hostile political class that controls the DC Swamp works to destabilize the Historic American Nation through endless wars and a huge migration program that is bad for the population. This is a lot more assertive response than DeSantis’, which was replete with political jargon that didn’t directly address the subject. DeSantis’ statement nevertheless demonstrates a much-needed mentality change in GOP leaders about foreign policy.
China and Russia are not the true threats; the DC Swamp is. Nationalists will lead the charge in bringing about this internal regime change in the United States.
