DeSantis Announces He Will Ban Chinese Communist Party From Buying Florida Real Estate

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is starting his second term in office after winning re-election by a stunning 19.4%.

The popular politician has flipped the Sunshine state from going purple to deep red in contrast to formerly very conservative states like Georgia and Arizona which have both turned blue.

DeSantis has boldly pursued a conservative agenda by keeping the state open during the COVID pandemic, cutting regulations, taking on woke movement, and confronting radical corporations like Disney, etc.

He has sent a warning to Chinese investors to stay out of the Sunshine State and threatened to take additional action to drive out the Chinese Community Party’s (CCP) influence.

“I applaud the governor’s leadership on this issue when we have got a Biden administration [with] their globalist policies,” Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said on “Fox & Friends First” Thursday. “It’s not like leaving a key under the mat of the door for our enemies or our friends. They leave the whole damn house open.”

The former US House member DeSantis called China a ‘hostile nation’ – as he threatened to ban foreign investors.

A report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) published in July 2022 found that Chinese nationals were the largest foreign buyer of US homes in dollars between March 2021 and March 2022.

The Daily Wire reported:

China owns more than 1.2 million acres of U.S. land, according to the American Enterprise Institute. Those holdings include nearly 700,000 acres of farmland and about 500,000 acres of commercial and industrial property in states including California, Iowa, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. A Chinese firm owned by a billionaire with close CCP ties is building a massive wind farm about 70 miles from Laughlin Air Force base in southwest Texas, according to a 2020 report by Foreign Policy.

Desantis insisted: ‘We don’t want to have holdings by hostile nations. If you look at the Chinese Communist Party, they’ve been very active throughout the Western Hemisphere in gobbling up land and investing in different things.’

He said that it was not in his state’s best interests to have ‘the Chinese Communist Party owning farmland, owning land close to military bases.’

He then asked why Americans would want the Communist Party owning ‘residential developments or subdivisions.’

In Florida, foreign investors own 5.7 percent of privately owned farmland, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

DeSantis boasted that under his governorship, the state Legislature has passed laws forbidding the China-backed Confucius Institutes from funding research at state colleges.

The Republican argued that China’s funding efforts are part of a plan to ‘bring propaganda’ to Florida.

 “I think we’re going to go even further on that. The Legislature only went so far a couple years ago. I think they’re going to have an appetite to do more because [China’s] influence on our society has been very insidious.”

DeSantis also accused Chinese investors of hurting Florida’s economy and security.

“When Covid hit, people needed all these supplies; I think like 100 percent of it was made in China. Why would you want to rely on a hostile nation for things that are integral for our quality of life and security?”

‘disentangling’ from China as being ‘very, very significant going forward,’ he added.

When discussing the President of the Chinese Communist Party, Xi Jinping, DeSantis said the leader had ‘taken a much more Marxist, Leninist turn since he’s been ruling China.’

‘Obviously, if someone comes in and buys, it’s not the CCP that’s signing this, these are holding companies and all that. But, yes, we do not need to have CCP influence in Florida’s economy.’

DeSantis talked up his own state saying: ‘I think we have the 13th biggest economy in the world. If we were our own country in Florida, you know, we’re a force to be reckoned with.’
