Millionaire Ron DeSantis was mocked for quoting Rich Men North of Richmond because the music was cheered on the first Republican presidential debate.
The Florida governor was requested concerning the Oliver Anthony nation hit and why he thought it had change into so widespread in conservative circles.
“Our country is in decline. This decline is not inevitable. It’s a choice. We need to send Joe Biden back to his basement and reverse American decline,” he mentioned on the debate on Wednesday night time.
“And it starts with understanding we must reverse Bidenomics so that middle-class families have a chance to succeed again. We cannot succeed as a country if you are working hard and cannot afford groceries, a car, or a new home while Hunter Biden can make hundreds of thousands of dollars on lousy paintings. That is wrong.”
And he added: “We also cannot succeed when Congress spends trillions and trillions of dollars. Those rich men north of Richmond have put us in this situation.
“Finally, we need to lower gas prices. We need to open up all energy production. We will be energy-dominant again in this country. I showed it could be done in the state of Florida. I pledged to you as your president we will get the job done and I will not let you down.”
