'Done. Dead. Not happening in this country': DeSantis indicates he'd staunchly oppose central bank digital currency as president

 Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who is currently one of the many GOP presidential primary candidates running for the Republican presidential nomination, has said that as president, he would put the kibosh on the idea of a central bank digital currency in the U.S.

During an interview with Tucker Carlson, DeSantis indicated that on day one as president, he would "nix central bank digital currency. Done. Dead. Not happening in this country," he declared. The governor described the concept of a CBDC as "a massive threat to American liberty." 

DeSantis also noted during the interview that while he was already pro-life in the past, the experience of hearing his first child's heartbeat during an ultrasound had a significant impact on him.

The governor named China as the "top threat" the United States faces.

Tucker Carlson interviewed DeSantis and multiple other GOP presidential primary candidates during the FAMiLY Leadership Summit on Friday. Blaze Media teamed up with the FAMiLY Leader for the event

Polls indicate that former President Donald Trump has a massive lead over the rest of the GOP presidential primary field with DeSantis trailing in a distant second place. Trump was not one of the candidates who participated in the forum on Friday. 

DeSantis secured victory last year during Florida's 2022 gubernatorial primary. Prior to serving as governor of the Sunshine State, DeSantis served as a lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives.
