Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appeared as a guest on the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton show, where he delved into his forthcoming presidential campaign.
On Wednesday, DeSantis unveiled his presidential candidacy during a Twitter Spaces interview conducted by Elon Musk. Despite the tremendous enthusiasm and a significant audience of hundreds of thousands, the online space experienced some initial technical hiccups.

Clay and Buck posed crucial inquiries to DeSantis, including his perspective on why he considers himself a more formidable contender against Joe Biden compared to former President Donald Trump.
DeSantis boasted about how he was able to turn a 50/50 state into a 60/40 Republican state.
Concluding his remarks, he made a pledge to primary voters, expressing his confidence in securing the nomination and affirming his ability to triumph in the election, thereby carrying forward the initiatives he initiated in Florida.
The Florida Governor predicted in January 2024, "My left hand will be on the bible,” DeSantis said, taking the oath as “president number 47.”
Buck Sexton posed a significant economic query, seeking DeSantis' perspective on how the nation can recover from the impact of the Biden economy.
DeSantis astutely identified the government's response to COVID-19 as a fundamental factor, attributing the negative effects on the economy to the actions of figures such as Fauci, the implementation of lockdowns, and excessive money printing by the Federal Reserve.
Highlighting his own successful track record, DeSantis emphasized the substantial influx of people coming to invest in Florida, which is reflected in the state's low unemployment rate when compared to blue states. This showcases his fiscal competence and ability to attract investment.
In addition, DeSantis outlined two essential components of his plan: curbing excessive government spending and providing tax relief. He emphasized that he has already implemented these measures in Florida, demonstrating his commitment to fiscal responsibility.
Furthermore, DeSantis addressed the concerning trend of government agencies weaponizing their power against political opponents. Recognizing the growing priority for many Americans, he underscored the importance of preventing agencies from targeting public dissent and using their authority for partisan purposes.
DeSantis also discussed the border issue. He made sure to leave no doubt that this is something he plans to get to work on immediately.
“National emergency declared on day one,” and “construction on the border wall” would be at the top of his priorities.
