(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Florida Gov. and 2024 presidential contender Ron DeSantis revealed a 10-point economic plan to decrease American interdependence with China. While visiting New Hampshire, a crucial state to win in the Republican primary, he aimed at China with a “Declaration of Economic Independence.”
In the third major policy proposal this week from the DeSantis campaign, he asserts that America must:
- Restore economic sovereignty from China
- Achieve 3% growth through deregulation
- Reach energy independence
- Reform education to lower barriers
- Secure the border
- Rein in the Federal Reserve
- Oppose bailouts
- Stop wasteful federal spending
While DeSantis believes that America is in decline, he hopes his plan can strengthen America by ending China’s trade advantage, controlling spending, and building an economy that works for Americans.
This wave of policy planks from the DeSantis campaign comes as he attempts to reboot his campaign image ahead of the Republican National Committee’s Aug. 23 first debate in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. To qualify, candidates must have at least 1% in three quality national polls and a minimum of 40,000 individual donors with 200 in 20 or more states.
Former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. DeSantis, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Bergum have qualified for the debate. However, Trump shall not attend, saying on TruthSocial, “Let them debate so I can see who I MIGHT consider for Vice President!”
The most recent FiveThirtyEight aggregate polling has Trump at about 53.1% and DeSantis at 15.8%. While trailing in the polls, DeSantis hopes his campaign reboot might revive the momentum he needs due to the steady decrease in polling he has seen recently. While Trump remains the dominant frontrunner in the Republican primary, the DeSantis campaign has been the only campaign to contest Trump in the polls.
With the primaries fast approaching in early 2024, the Republican presidential candidates will continue to escalate political moves in the battle for the White House.
