BURGUM: First of all, [if Americans] have a level playing field, they can outcompete anyone in the world. But this is part of the larger issue, which is, we're in a cold war with China. The Biden administration won't admit that. But we're also in a economic war through what we're doing with agriculture and energy. And we're also in a war with them relative to cyber war. We get attacked every day in North Dakota--every state, every school district--all being attacked every day by either China, Russia, Iran, or North Korea. And now we have got a Biden administration whose whole policy is appeasement, making the world less safe. And then they're also helping Iran get closer to nuclear weapon, then which pushes all of the Middle East closer to China and Russia.
DESANTIS: It is in our interest to the end this war, and that's what I will do as president. We are not going to have a blank check. We will not have U.S. troops. We are going to make the Europeans do what they need to do.
Meanwhile, our own country is being invaded. We don't even have control of our own territory. We have got to defend the American people before we even worry about all these other things. These guys in Washington, D.C. don't care about the American people. They don't care about the communities being overrun because of this border. So as commander-in-chief, I will defend this country's sovereignty.
U.N. Ambassador Nikki HALEY: But it's not a territorial dispute. It's never been a territorial dispute.
Gov. Ron DESANTIS (R-FL): We are not going to have a blank check. We will not have U.S. troops. We are going to make the Europeans do what they need to do.
SCOTT: 90% of the resources that we send to Ukraine is guaranteed as a loan--
DESANTIS: We're not going to get it back.
SCOTT: It's not actually going to be paid by Ukraine. It's paid our NATO allies. Our national vital interests is in degrading the Russian military. By degrading the Russian military, we actually keep our homeland safer, we keep our troops at home, and we all understand Article Five of NATO. If you want to keep American troops at home, the attack on NATO territory would bring us and our troops in. By degrading the Russian military, we reduce if not eliminate an attack on NATO territories.
Vivek RAMASWAMY (R-OH): China is the real enemy. And we're driving Russia further into China's arms.
