Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy said on Sunday that while he hopes to become the party’s nominee for the November 2024 US elections, he will vote for Donald
if the former president secures the nomination.
Appearing on a Sunday talk show, the 38-year-old Indian American entrepreneur told ABC news, “If Donald Trump’s the nominee —yes, I will support him, and if I’m the president, yes, I will pardon him because that will help reunite the country. But it’s not the most important thing I’m going to do as the next president. It is the table stakes for moving this country forward.”
Following his impressive performance in the inaugural Republican primary
last month, Ramaswamy has experienced a surge in popularity. He is notably the sole Republican presidential hopeful to openly endorse Trump. “My bottom line is that I will vote for the person who I think is best positioned to move this country forward. I do not think that’s Joe Biden. I do not think that is whichever other puppet, Kamala Harris or anybody else, that they roll out after Joe Biden,” he said.
Ramaswamy said while he may have disagreements with several of his Republican counterparts on various issues, he firmly believes that any of them would be more effective than Biden or Harris in steering the US towards progress.
