While delivering remarks over the weekend in Des Moines, Iowa, Florida Governor and 2024 candidate Ron DeSantis shared his thoughts on the border crisis —and promised to take action should he win the presidency.
“I’ve heard, as a Republican, talk about the southern border for years and years and years. I will FINALLY be the president to bring this issue to a conclusion,” DeSantis said during Joni Ernst’s Roast and Ride event. “We will shut the border down. We will build the border wall. We will end mass migration into this country. And we will hold the Mexican drug cartels accountable for the carnage they have unleashed on the American people!”

DeSantis also addressed the issue of wokeness in the U.S. military, saying that if he becomes president, the military will go back to basics on his first day in office.
“I’m proud to have served in the United States Navy and done a tour in Iraq and the people I serve with were honorable, patriotic people,” DeSantis said. “For you veterans in the crowd, thank you for your service. I think all of us have a sense of pride and being able to wear the cloth of your country.”
“But we’ve seen the military become politicized in recent years. You see woke agenda being imposed on it,” he continued. “On day one as commander-in-chief, I rip it all out. We’re getting the military back to basics. We’re going to improve morale, and we’re going to get people to want to join the military again.”
