Ron DeSantis Going to Make the Big Announcement with Elon Musk – Watch
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will officially declare his candidacy for president on Wednesday, during a live event on Twitter with Elon Musk. The conversation will be moderated by Republican donor David Sacks, who is supporter of DeSantis and a close ally of Musk.
In his announcement, DeSantis said that he was running to “restore America to greatness.” He criticized the Biden administration for its handling of the economy, the border, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re facing a crisis of leadership in this country,” DeSantis said. “The Biden administration has failed us on every level.”
DeSantis also took aim at the left-wing activists who have been protesting against his policies in Florida.
“The radical left is trying to destroy our country,” DeSantis said. “But I’m not going to let them win.”
A source close to Musk told NBC News that Musk believes that former President Donald Trump is not capable of winning the White House in 2024 and that DeSantis is. “He’s interested in the future, and he’s interested in winning again,” the person said.
Following the event on Twitter, DeSantis is expected to appear on Fox News to give his first post-announcement interview with Trey Gowdy at 8 p.m. EST on “Fox News Tonight.”
DeSantis’s announcement was met with a warm reception from conservatives. Many praised him for his strong stance on issues such as immigration and COVID-19.
“DeSantis is the only candidate who can defeat Biden in 2024,” said conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. “He’s the most popular governor in America, and he has a proven track record of success.”
DeSantis’s announcement is likely to shake up the Republican primary race. He is seen as a rising star in the party, and he has a strong base of support among conservatives.
It remains to be seen whether DeSantis will be able to defeat former President Donald Trump in the Republican primary. However, his announcement is a sign that he is serious about running for president, and he could be a major force in the race.
