In some detail, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has now expressed his views on Russia’s assault on Ukraine, characterizing the horrific conflict as a “border dispute” and rejecting the majority of his party to support former President Donald Trump’s point of view.
On Monday night, Fox News personality Tucker Carlson presented the outcomes of a foreign policy inquiry he sent to potential 2024 contestants for the Republican Party, such as DeSantis. For a very long period, nobody was able to say with certainty where DeSantis stood on Ukraine, according to Carlson.
The Florida governor, in the DeSantis remark, calls the violent and forceful assault of a sovereign state a “territorial dispute” and says the United States should first pay attention to its borders:
“Although getting further involved in a territorial conflict between Ukraine and Russia does not fall under the U.S.’s many important national interests, which include protecting our borders, tackling the military’s suitability crisis, obtaining energy independence and safety, and limiting the power of the Chinese Communist Party in terms of trade, culture, and military, it isn’t among them. The financing of this battle with a virtual “blank check” by the Biden administration for “as far as it takes,” without any specific goals or responsibility, diverts attention away from our nation’s most immediate concerns.”
