Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his 10-point economic plan Monday if elected president in 2024, promising to fight for the middle class and decouple from China.

DeSantis’ “Declaration of Economic Independence” is the third policy rollout of his presidential bid, following the unveiling of his agenda for immigration and the military.

According to the proposal, the governor’s plan seeks to bolster American energy independence, rein in the Federal Reserve and government spending, cut red tape, and end environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in investment banking.

“We must be a society in which Americans who work hard and give the most of their God-given ability are able to succeed, to afford to buy a home, a car, and to raise a family,” DeSantis said in a statement. “My promise is that I will always fight for our citizens, our families, our future, and our way of life – and I will never back down. We will take back control of our destiny — and ensure that our future is as proud, independent, and free as our past.”

Along with declaring independence from China, the economic plan includes “restoring merit for … economic advancement,” “lowering barriers to entry for working-class Americans,” “creating a fair labor market by securing the border,” and “opposing bailouts” for big banks.

The governor’s political team also released a video coinciding with DeSantis’ policy rollout, aiming at President Joe Biden’s administration for overseeing record inflation and the numerous bank failures from earlier this year.

DeSantis’ policy rollout comes as his campaign is undergoing a reset after plummeting in the polls since his late May presidential announcement. The governor can be expected to focus more on the economy and foreign policy going forward rather than “culture war” issues, an outside adviser previously told the DCNF.

DeSantis announced his plan to “stop the invasion” in late June, where he pledged to build a border wall, target drug cartels, and unleash state law enforcement to assist federal authorities.

DeSantis promised to “rip the woke out of the military” when unveiling his policy on July 18 and plans to bolster readiness and fix recruiting problems.

“We cannot be satisfied with simply managing this decline a little bit better than the Democrats,” DeSantis said in his rollout speech. “I’m running for president because we need to reverse the decline of this country and restore our country to the greatness that it deserves, and that begins by restoring an American economy that actually works for American families again.”
