Indian American Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has filed a lawsuit against the World Economic Forum (WEF) for including his name in their 'Young Global Leaders' list.
According to a statement issued by Ramaswamy's office, he had refused an invitation to be part of the list and even followed up with the WEF to remove his name after the list had been published. "WEF’s decision to stamp Ramaswamy’s name and image on its ‘list’ created a false public impression that served WEF’s goals while undercutting Ramaswamy’s staunch public advocacy against WEF’s globalist agenda," the statement said.
Reacting to the news, the 37-year-old millionaire, who is a strong critic of the WEF's ‘stakeholder capitalism’ and the ‘Great Reset’ agendas, said, "The World Economic Forum’s mission to achieve global ‘equity’ poses a serious threat to the American way of life."
"That’s why I’ve been one of the most vocal crusaders in America against WEF, and I am filing this lawsuit to hold them accountable for creating the false illusion of affiliation to undermine its opponents - so that they don’t do it again to others," he emphasized.
WEF had listed Ramaswamy as a Young Global Leader in 2021 along with people like anti-racism activist and author Ibram X. Kendi, the New York Post reported. According to the report, the lawsuit is seeking only nominal damages of $2,500.
