On “The Rubin Report," BlazeTV host Dave Rubin played a video clip of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) expressing his concerns about President Joe Biden’s executive order on "ensuring responsible development of digital assets." The new digital currency could be controlled by the Federal Reserve, and DeSantis warned of the possible dangers of a centrally controlled digital dollar.

"There's a difference between a decentralized digital currency, or cryptocurrency like a Bitcoin, and what some are talking about doing at the federal level to convert U.S. dollars into basically a digital currency," DeSantis began.

"I think there's a lot of hazards with that, when that's centrally controlled. I worry about the amount of power that that would give someone in central authority to basically be able to shut off access to purchasing certain goods. You know, we'd be in unchartered territories and we've seen how some of these financial institutions, acting at the behest of government, can cut people off. Can you imagine if the federal government actually controlled whether you could even go in? So, I know Biden issued an executive order and I'm very concerned about that," he added.

Dave pointed out that, while Biden's plan for a U.S. digital dollar "sounds right" in theory, the idea of a centralized digital dollar is in reality very dangerous.

"Remember what happened in Canada a few weeks ago when they were going after the bank accounts of the truckers?" Dave asked. "Think how dangerous it would be if we have a digital dollar, and then you protest the government and all the government has to do is [have] some government bureaucrat lackey [act] and, 'adios amigo,' your money is gone."
