In a recent interview with Fox News, Ramaswamy, 38, said he feels no animosity toward Haley, 51, but there is a “fundamental ideological divide.”
Vivek Ramaswamy said his opponent Nikki Haley represents the older generation of Republicans and it is going to take someone like him who belongs to the next generation to reach the new generation of Americans.
The Indian American presidential primary candidates from the Republican party, have taken potshots at each other over the past couple of months as they campaign across the country to secure the GOP nomination for the 2024 elections.
In a recent interview with Fox News, Ramaswamy, 38, said he feels no animosity toward Haley, 51, but there is a “fundamental ideological divide.” He continued, “She represents an older generation of Republicans. She talks a lot about ‘we need a new generation of leadership.’ I agree with her. It is just that she is on the wrong side of that generational divide, taking us back to the Dick Cheney era, pointless wars that wasted $7 trillion of national debt that we accumulated, thousands of America's sons and daughters of lives sacrificed, people my age.”
“That’s a mistake and I think that anybody who has made money off those wars, people who have been part of the Establishment, joining military contractors, monetizing their time in government, I don’t care if it that is the Biden corruption family or if it is a Republican version of that, which is what I see in Nikki Haley.”
Ramaswamy continued, “We deserve somebody who is not just a puppet of the special interest but somebody who is Independent, coming in from the outside, speaking the truth in an unvarnished way, and answering what it means to be American for the next generation and I am the one to do that.”
Ramaswamy has qualified for the fourth debate, alongside his opponent Haley, which is set for December 6 in Alabama. Speaking about his approach to the event, Ramaswamy said, “I will be there, and I will be similarly unrestrained, as I was in the last debate as well. That is what our base is hungry for. They want the truth. They don’t want professional politicians with talking points. So, yes, I have qualified.”
