In his latest broadcast, Tucker Carlson revealed the position of Governor DeSantis on the ongoing war in Ukraine, and it turns out to be a different position than that of many Republicans in Washington.
In the video, right before he gives us the position of DeSantis, you can briefly see the position of Mike Pence which came before.
Pence argued for supporting Ukraine until it gets restored and thus stopping Putin. And he suggested this was the Reagan doctrine:
As I said, DeSantis had a different take on the Ukraine war:
“We cannot prioritize intervention in an escalating foreign war over the defense of our own homeland.”

In short, he argues against the opened ended ‘blank check’ policy of the Biden administration for supporting Ukraine.
And he definitely opposes sharing F-16s and long-range missiles that could enable Ukraine “to engage in offensive operations beyond its borders”.
But even more to the point, DeSantis says “We cannot prioritize intervention in an escalating foreign war over the defense of our own homeland, especially as tens of thousands of Americans are dying every year from narcotics smuggled across our open border and our weapons arsenals critical for our on security are rapidly being depleted.”
Sounds pretty dang America First to me.
