DeSantis Outlines Major Shift He’d Make in U.S. Military

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said during a radio interview this week that he envisions, as president, dramatically scaling up the size of the U.S. Navy to prevent war with communist China.

DeSantis made the remarks while talking to Hugh Hewitt on Wednesday about a variety of issues, including what he is looking for in a vice presidential running mate and an attorney general nominee.

While discussing the threat that China poses to the U.S., DeSantis said that it was important to have “a whole of society approach to fending off the CCP.”

“This is our top threat. This decade will be the decisive decade,” he said. “This is a military confrontation, perhaps, a technological, economic, cultural, all of those things. We need to be, have national policy geared towards fending off the CCP. And I think that Washington’s policy, the D.C. kind of smart tank, they’ve had all bark and very little bite with respect to China. I think on the current course, China will surpass us as we get into the next decade.” (Read more from “DeSantis Outlines Major Shift He’d Make in U.S. Military” HERE)
