An audacious declaration regarding the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas was issued by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in crisis mode. The war is being utilised by China to contest the dominance of the United States, as stated by the governor. The forthcoming foreign policy agenda speech by Governor DeSantis is expected to tackle the subject of the Chinese Communist Party, which he has long criticized.
“In a new ad DeSantis's campaign released Thursday, the governor called for eradicating the terrorist group Hamas and eliminating America's dependence on China, a growing superpower.

Governor DeSantis has undertaken a number of pro-Israeli measures in response to the unexpected Hamas attack on October 7. Additionally, he has directed the cessation of pro-Palestinian demonstrations at Florida's university system and orchestrated four flights to evacuate close to 700 Americans from Israel. He has also dispatched weapons, drones, and medical supplies to the country. This demonstrates the determination of DeSantis to combat Hamas and his steadfast support for Israel.
DeSantis demands the fall of Hamas and the cessation of the United States' reliance on China in a recently released campaign advertisement. China may be exploiting this perceived vulnerability, according to the advertisement, which emphasizes the assaults on Israel and President Joe Biden's frailty. A meeting between Vice President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping is also featured in the advertisement, which implies that China considers the United States to be feeble and is working to undermine its preeminence.
Governor DeSantis conveys the significance of reclaiming the economic autonomy of the United States from China throughout the advertisement. Particularly in agriculture and in the vicinity of military installations, he emphasizes the necessity of strategic decoupling from China. DeSantis affirms his commitment to blocking Chinese Communist Party influence over the United States during his tenure as leader.
As Governor DeSantis vies for second place in the 2024 Republican primary, trailing former President Donald Trump, he adopts a resolute opposition to China and an advocate for Israel. In doing so, he contrasts with former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. Foreign assistance provided by Biden to Israel and Ukraine is a component of DeSantis's criticism of the program. A further point of contention is his stance on humanitarian assistance for the Gaza Strip and the admission of Gazanian refugees into the United States.
Legislation limiting Chinese land acquisitions in agricultural regions and near military bases was among the additional measures signed by Governor DeSantis to counter Chinese influence. In academia, real estate, and cyberspace, he has also declared executive actions in response to threats posed by China and other hostile foreign powers.
Governor Ron DeSantis articulates unequivocally his position regarding China's participation in the Israel-Hamas conflict. He pledges to combat China on the grounds that it is utilizing this conflict to challenge American preeminence. DeSantis further initiatives to limit Chinese influence in a variety of sectors and maintains his support for Israel. Particularly with regard to foreign policy matters, this aggressive stance distinguishes him from other Republican primary candidates in 2024.
