The media is buzzing with speculation that former President Donald Trump is considering Vivek Ramaswamy, a former biotech executive, as his vice-presidential pick for 2024.
However, a closer look at Trump’s comments reveals a more nuanced picture. While Trump praised Ramaswamy’s “talent,” his statements were vague and noncommittal, leaving room for various interpretations.
Trump’s praise could be a strategic move to neutralize his competition in the primaries by keeping them hopeful for a position in his administration.
Additionally, Trump’s cautionary advice to Ramaswamy about being “too controversial” suggests that he may see him as a liability rather than an asset.
