During a recent interview with Piers Morgan, which will air on Thursday “Piers Morgan Uncensored,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis opened up about his plans to run for president in 2024. He outlined how he would defeat Joe Biden, saying, “I won with independents by 18 points, and so that will be the same formula that we would take, and honestly forget about me, I think anybody should take the formula like that nationally.” Morgan previewed his interview in a piece in the The New York Post where he wrote, “In an exclusive wide-ranging interview with me (Morgan) airing on Fox Nation’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on Thursday, he (DeSantis) said “stay tuned” about his widely expected announcement that he’s running for president and declared: I have what it takes to be president and I can beat Biden.”
At one point in the interview DeSantis told Morgan, “If I were to run, I’m running against Biden. Like we [him and Trump] are competing for the Republican, potentially, I get that, but ultimately you know the guy I’m gonna focus on is Biden because I think he’s failed the country. I think the country wants a change. I think they want a fresh start and a new direction and so we’ll be very vocal about that.”
“You can’t win with just Republicans. You’ve got to win with independents, and you need to convince some of these Democrats, which I was able to do in Florida because they’re not woke, they don’t like some of the nonsense going on. They want their streets safe, and they want quality education. So, I think you could appeal to people across the canvas,” he added.

DeSantis told Morgan that if he “were to run,” he would put his focus squarely on Biden and his failures as president.
“I think he’s failed the country. I think the country wants a change. I think they want a fresh start and a new direction, and so we’ll be very vocal about that,” he said.
Finally, Morgan asked DeSantis if he thought he could beat Biden, and the governor responded, “I think so.”
