DeSantis Calls out CCP Buying U.S. Farmland
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis strongly criticized the CCP, introducing legislation to prevent China from purchasing American farmland.
From Daily Mail. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted the Chinese Communist Party on Friday for buying up huge chunks of farmland and other properties in the Sunshine State.
Speaking to Fox News‘ Laura Ingraham, DeSantis – considered a potential 2024 presidential candidate and currently running for re-election in Florida – said Beijing purchasing American real estate is a growing concern.
‘I don’t think they should be able to do it. I think the problem is these companies have ties to the CCP, and it’s not always apparent on the face of whatever a company is doing – but I think it’s a huge problem.’
The governor’s solution has been to begin banning what he calls ‘undue influence from rogue states,’ like China‘s ruling party.
The state has already banned what’s known as a ‘Confucius Institutes,’ public educational and cultural promotion programs designed to educate people about China, thereby giving the CCP undue influence over systems of higher learning.
DeSantis added that there’s likely more legislative action to come: ‘We’re also probably going to do legislation next legislative session about our pension investments, with things that may be linked to the CCP. We don’t necessarily have a lot of it, but we want to make sure that we’re cutting ties so that we’re not funding our number-one adversary….’
DeSantis’ tough talk on China comes with the continuing rumors that his re-election campaign in Florida may be a stepping stone to the White House in 2024.
Chatter of a possible presidential run is gaining steam with voters in the battleground state of Michigan, according to a poll released Tuesday, where more than four in 10 Republicans said they’d prefer him over Donald Trump….
Out of a choice between DeSantis and Trump in the 2024 Republican primary, 45.2% said they would back the commander-in-chief.
DeSantis is less than four points behind with a 41.6% share of support. Just over 12% said they were undecided.
Florida’s Republican leader has built a national brand for himself as one of the most vocal opponents of the Biden administration….
But despite clinching the governorship with Trump’s endorsement in 2018, DeSantis has not ruled out challenging the ex-president for the White House….
