Ramaswamy Flipped on Trump?

If you know much about the GOP 2024 field for the presidency, you’ll see that businessman and political outsider Vivek Ramaswamy has slowly been climbing in the polls. Undoubtedly, no small part of that rising popularity is due to his support of former President Donald Trump.

But what if that support was all just a farce?

Thanks to a resurfaced article from Politico, that’s what many Americans are starting to assume.

The article in question, a commentary written by Ramaswamy in 2022, was based on his book “Nation of Victims: Identity Politics, the Death of Mert, and the Path Back to Excellence.” In it, Ramaswamy tries to explain that Trump isn’t so much of the great savior he’s been made out to be. Instead, he’s no better than failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams of Georgia.

“While Donald Trump promised to lead the nation to recommit itself to the pursuit of greatness, what he delivered in the end was just another tale of grievance, a persecution complex that swallowed much of the Republican Party whole.”

He added, “Trump took a page from the Abrams playbook. His claims were just as weak as Abrams’. She claimed voter suppression in her 2018 defeat, he claimed voter fraud two years later.”

Then he even went on to describe Trump’s actions of “victimhood” as the reason why the political left won and is still winning.

And yet, now, in 2023, when Ramaswamy is trying to win the hearts of the nation, he suddenly has changed his mind, making posts about how Trump has been wronged and how much he supports the man.

So, either he’s done a complete about-face on the matter in little more than a year – or he’s faking it all…

I put the question to you. Do you think this is all just a farce for Ramaswamy to gain attention from American voters, knowing that Trump is still very popular?

Or is his support of Trump genuine?
