Ramaswamy WON’T Settle – Promises MADE!

(USNewsMag.com) – It looks like it’s either go big or go home for entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who says he won’t settle for second-in-command if he fails to win the GOP nomination for the presidency.

Ramaswamy appeared on Fox News on Saturday for an interview and was asked by host Neil Cavuto if he would accept an offer to run as vice president if he didn’t win the presidential nomination for the Republican Party. Ramaswamy said he and former President Donald Trump “share something in common,” which is that neither of them “does well in a number 2 position.”

He elaborated that he would “be in the best position” to achieve his goal of reuniting the country from within the federal government “from the top job. Ramaswamy added he has no interest in “taking a different position in the government” and said he would be better at driving change “through the private sector” before taking a second or third position in the federal government.

According to Ramaswamy, he isn’t running for president based on a “quest for personal power,” but is interested in initiating a revival of a “missing national identity,” which he believes is at the root of most of the country’s problems. He also said he wants to get his message out to younger generations, which would be most possible from the highest office in the land.

Former President Donald Trump, whom Ramaswamy promised he would officially pardon if elected, is still the current frontrunner for the GOP nomination. Trump is leagues ahead of the other candidates, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in second place and Ramaswamy rising in the polls to catch up with him, sitting in third place. Considering he was mostly unknown politically before launching his campaign, Ramaswamy is doing quite well.

DeSantis and former South Carolina governor and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley were both asked the same question about accepting a vice president role, and both gave a similar answer as Ramaswamy. DeSantis said he doesn’t think he’d be able to be Trump’s running mate if offered because he’s “not a No. 2 guy. The two candidates have also been attacking one another all year.
