Trump praises Ramaswamy as VP contender but warns about controversial speech; shared stances and Israel aid views spark debates, while debate performance draws DeSantis comparisons.
Admiration for Vivek Ramaswamy
Former President Donald Trump has publicly shown his admiration for Vivek Ramaswamy, even suggesting that the 38-year-old entrepreneur could be a strong contender for the vice presidential position.
Trump Tells Him to Tone it Down
Trump also cautioned the Indian-American entrepreneur to temper some of his more contentious rhetoric.
Surging Into Spotlight
The once relatively unknown Ramaswamy has recently surged into the spotlight as a vibrant anti-establishment figure in the Republican primary, a rise that has not escaped the attention of the party’s front-running candidate, someone Ramaswamy has staunchly supported.
‘He’s Got Good Energy’
In an interview with Glenn Beck on BlazeTV, Trump shared his thoughts: “He’s a very, very, very intelligent person. He’s got good energy, and he could be some form of something.”
‘I Think He’d Be Very Good’
He expressed his approval of the notion of “Vice President Ramaswamy.” Trump went on to say, “I tell you, I think he’d be very good.”
Trump Cautioned the Ramaswamy
Trump also advised Ramaswamy to be cautious with his statements, noting, “He’s starting to get out there a little bit. He’s getting a little bit controversial.”
I got to tell him, ‘Be a little bit careful. Some things you have to hold in just a little bit, right?'”
They Align on Many Topics
Ramaswamy’s political stances notably align with Trump’s on several key issues.
Stance on Mexican Drug Cartels
He advocates for the elimination of the Department of Education and supports military action against Mexican drug cartels.
Stance on Ukraine and Russian War
He has put forth the idea of maintaining Ukraine’s current borders, while allowing Russia to control the Donbas region on the condition that Ukraine refrains from NATO membership and Russia severs ties with China.
Safeguarding Taiwan from China
During a campaign event in Iowa, Ramaswamy underscored the significance of safeguarding Taiwan from China, suggesting a reassessment once the U.S. achieves semiconductor independence.
Stance on U.S. Aid to Israel
Ramaswamy’s stance on U.S. aid to Israel has sparked substantial debate.
Haley’s Accusations During the Debate
Nikki Haley, former U.N. Ambassador, accused him of wanting to cease funding to Israel during a Republican debate.
His Claims About Israel
In response, Ramaswamy vehemently asserted the robustness of the U.S.-Israel relationship, stating, “Our relationship with Israel will never be stronger than by the end of my first term.
But it’s not a client relationship, it is a friendship. And you know what friends do? Friends help each other stand on their own two feet.”
He Called Haley By Her Birth Name
A noteworthy controversy arose when Ramaswamy referred to Nikki Haley by her birth name on his website, challenging her assertions about his Israel stance.
He Doesn’t Think They Need More Assistance
He also conveyed on Russell Brand’s Rumble channel that by 2028, when the U.S.’s $38 billion aid package to Israel concludes, Israel might not require further assistance.
His Presence During the Debate
During a debate, Ramaswamy introduced himself as the “skinny guy with a funny last name” and engaged in spirited exchanges with political figures like former Vice President Mike Pence, Haley, and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
He Caught the Attention of Many Viewers
His performance captured attention, with a Daily Mail poll indicating a tie between him and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the top position.
