Vivek Ramaswamy:-
Vivek Ramaswamy, a 37-year-old Indian-American entrepreneur, has launched his bid for the 2024 United States Presidential election. During a live interview on Fox News with Tucker Carlson, Ramaswamy announced that he plans to "put merit back" into the U.S. and end the country's reliance on China. He is the second member of the Indian-American community to join the Republican Party's presidential primary race, after Nikki Haley. Ramaswamy, whose parents migrated to the U.S. from Kerala and worked at a General Electric plant in Ohio, founded Roivant Sciences in 2014, which led to successful clinical trials and FDA-approved products.  Vivek Ramaswamy Vivek Ramaswamy Ramaswamy believes that "wokeism," the promotion of liberal progressive ideology and policy, is a national threat. He plans to revive the ideals of the U.S. by putting "merit" back into "America" and ending affirmative action in "every sphere of American life." Ramaswamy is also determined to prioritise the country's external threats, including the rise of China, by decoupling the economic relationship between the two countries. Before entering the Presidential race, Ramaswamy and Haley will need to win the Republican Party's presidential primary, which begins in January 2024. The U.S. Presidential election is scheduled to be held on November 5, 2024.
