Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida and republican presidential candidate, has big plans for the day he steps into the Oval Office.
Unlike other candidates who danced around the topic of what to do about the border crisis — the one where millions of illegal immigrants are pouring into the country, bringing with them huge quantities of fentanyl — DeSantis has a clear plan.
Several of the other GOP candidates seemed more concerned about the war between Russia and Ukraine than the fact that over 100,000 Americans have now died as a result of fentanyl smuggled over the border.
And while DeSantis certainly isn't a fan of Putin, he’s far more concerned about “what’s in America’s national interest,” he told Tucker Carlson.
“I wish the D.C. elites cared as much about our border as they do about the Ukraine-Russia border,” he continued.
But when he’s elected president, all of that will change.
“Day one” of his term, DeSantis intends to “declare a national emergency, mobilize all resources, including the military, stop the invasion.”
“Yes, build the wall,” he continued, “but most importantly, authorize the border patrol — authorize our military — to deal with the cartels. If they’re breaking into our country bringing product, if I’m in charge, that’s going to be the last thing they do because they’re going to end up stone-cold dead.”
“I think there’s every reason to believe,” Dave Rubin says, “that on day one, he would mobilize the military and ... [defend] the border.”
