Vivek Ramaswamy Suspends 2024 Presidential Campaign, Endorses Donald Trump

Vivek Ramaswamy chose to withdraw from the 2024 Republican presidential nomination race on Monday, throwing his support behind former President Donald Trump after finishing in a distant fourth place in Iowa’s initial caucuses.

Ramaswamy, a 38-year-old political neophyte, acknowledged there was no viable path forward for him in the race without undesirable events transpiring.

Having emulated Trump’s ascent as a wealthy outsider, Ramaswamy reached out to the former president to congratulate him on his Iowa victory. 

In a twist of events, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis clinched second place, with former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley following closely in third.

Trump, acknowledging Ramaswamy’s efforts in his victory speech, hinted at their joint appearance in New Hampshire. Ramaswamy suggested DeSantis and Haley should likewise withdraw from the race.

Throughout the campaign, Ramaswamy praised Trump as the “best president of the 21st century” but advocated for “fresh legs” within the Republican ranks. Despite his call for a “revolution,” Ramaswamy’s exit underscores Trump’s enduring influence, making him the favorite for the GOP nomination.

Ramaswamy’s challenge highlighted the difficulty for any non-Trump Republican to reshape party orthodoxy. His positions, such as opposing aid for Israel and Ukraine, yielded little political gain.

Vivek Ramaswamy chose to withdraw from the 2024 Republican presidential nomination race on Monday, throwing his support behind former President Donald Trump after finishing in a distant fourth place in Iowa’s initial caucuses.

Vivek Ramaswamy prioritizes truth and acknowledges his role in representing convictions, and is open to vice presidential consideration.

The son of Indian immigrants, Ramaswamy, with a background in hedge funds and pharmaceutical research, applied his brash approach from the business world to his campaign. Advocating for bold reform, he posed the question: an insider delivering incremental change or an outsider like himself?

Ramaswamy captivated GOP audiences with a mix of biography, detailed policies, and conservative stances.

He supported deporting American-born children of illegal immigrants, questioned the official account of 9/11, called for significant federal workforce reductions, and proposed raising the US voting age. Critical of corporate diversity initiatives, he referred to hawkish rivals as “Dick Cheney in 3-inch heels.”

However, Ramaswamy faced criticism for overlooking contradictory details and received pushback for isolationist views. 

Despite his promise to pardon Trump for any federal crimes, his past criticism of Trump’s 2020 denial and views on the Jan. 6 events emerged.

Ramaswamy, maintaining a noble purpose, pledged to steer clear of World War III and revive national pride in the country.
