Former President Donald Trump recently expressed confidence that GOP presidential contender Vivek Ramaswamy, who has often praised the former president, will endorse him for president.
Trump is set to become the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2024, given that he has trounced all his fellow competitors, who are vying for their party’s presidential nomination.
On Truth Social, the former president predicted Ramaswamy would soon endorse him, writing, “He will, I am sure, Endorse me. But Vivek is a good man, and he is not done yet!”
Since all GOP presidential contenders wishing to participate in primary debates sanctioned by the Republican National Committee (RNC) were required to sign a pledge vowing to support the party’s eventual nominee, it is likely Ramaswamy will support Trump.
Ramaswamy’s presidential campaign recently ceased spending on television advertising, according to NBC News.
On X, formerly known as Twitter, Ramaswamy pointed out that spending on television advertising is “idiotic.”
“Presidential TV ad spending is idiotic, low-ROI & a trick that political consultants use to bamboozle candidates who suffer from low IQ. We’re doing it differently. Spending $$ in a way that follows data…apparently a crazy idea in US politics. Big surprise coming on Jan 15,” the GOP presidential contender wrote on X.

The Republican Iowa caucus is set to take place on Jan. 15, 2024.
“We are focused on bringing out the voters we’ve identified — best way to reach them is using addressable advertising, mail, text, live calls, and doors to communicate with our voters on Vivek’s vision for America, making their plan to caucus and turning them out,” Ramaswamy campaign press secretary Tricia McLaughlin pointed out.
“As you know, this isn’t what most campaigns look like. We have intentionally structured this way so that we have the ability to be nimble and hyper-targeted in our ad spending,” she added.
In a bold move, Ramaswamy recently declared he would withdraw from Colorado’s presidential primary ballot, following a decision by four leftist justices on the state Supreme Court to remove Trump from the ballot.
Trump was recently barred from Colorado’s primary ballot after the state Supreme Court decided that the former president had engaged in “insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021, and was thereby ineligible to seek public office because of the 14th Amendment. Such a blatantly political decision is set to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
