Florida Politics reports:
During an interview on The Hugh Hewitt Show, Marco Rubio rebutted Gov. Ron DeSantis’ skepticism about the ongoing conflict, weighing in on whether DeSantis took his antiwar position for political reasons, and whether the war is simply a “territorial dispute.” When asked about DeSantis’ political calculus, with Hewitt suggesting DeSantis was trying “not to upset the neo-isolationist voter,” Rubio noted that Tallahassee doesn’t deal with world affairs.
“I don’t know what he’s trying to do or what the goal is. Obviously, he doesn’t deal with foreign policy every day as Governor. I can’t compare that to something else he did or said, over the last few years because he doesn’t deal with it every day,” Rubio said. “It’s not a territorial dispute any more than it would be a territorial dispute if the United States decided that it wants to take over Canada or take over the Bahamas,” Rubio added.
