DeSantis filed the relevant papers with the Federal Election Commission. He then announced his intention to run in the primary on Twitter in a conversation with the billionaire Elon Musk.

He then announced his candidacy in the conservative media, including Fox News.

“I’m running for president of the United States to lead a great American comeback because we know our country is going in the wrong direction,” DeSantis told Twitter Space. He promised that as president, he would revitalize the country, restore “mental health”, fiscal responsibility and border security.

He accused President Joe Biden of the “medical authoritarianism” of his administration. Here he referred to vaccination requirements for federal employees, as well as causing inflation and a crisis at the border.

Election headquarters Shortaware of the strong position of the governor Florida, for several months he has been investing in political advertisements intended to discredit him. The former president himself also attacks DeSantis.

A few hours before the official announcement of his political plans, he wrote that the governor of Florida “desperately needs a personality transplant.”

“While the U.S. has many vital national interests — securing our borders, addressing the readiness crisis in our military, achieving energy security, and curbing the economic, cultural, and military power of the Chinese Communist Party — further entanglement in a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia is not one of them DeSantis said.

A few days later in another interview he called admittedly Vladimir Putin war criminal, but added that Crimea and Donbass once belonged to Russia.

DeSantis is the seventh right-wing politician to officially announce his intention to run for president. Former President Donald Trump, former South Carolina Governor and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, investor Vivek Ramaswamy, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, radio columnist Larry Elder, and Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina.

The favorite in the polls, however, is Trump, whom more than half of Republican voters want to vote for. DeSantis has an approval rating of 20 percent.
