(TruthAndLiberty.com) – On Saturday, Jan. 6, GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy argued during a town hall in Iowa that there were only two Republican presidential candidates that were running for the GOP nomination, him and former President Donald Trump.
Ramaswamy in his remarks argued that only he and Trump were running with an American First agenda and that they were the only two America First candidates on the ballot.
This statement came after the 38-year-old candidate had told a crowd of his supporters that it was time for them to speak “candidly.” He had proceeded to call for them to raise their hands if they were intending to either vote for him or Trump. He then questioned how many were leading towards supporting his candidacy right now, and argued that he was sure a good number of them did.
Ramaswamy then proceeded to question how many of them were planning to vote for the former President in the Jan. 15 Iowa presidential caucuses. He argued that he understood why they would do that because currently there were only two “America First” candidates on the ballot.
Ramaswamy has often aligned himself with the former President and has stated that he was running on an “America First 2.0” agenda which is focused on reducing the country’s trade deficits and addressing America’s position and responsibilities towards international trade organizations.
The Iowa Caucuses are set to begin in only a week and it will be the first opportunity for Americans to vote on who they would like to see as the next U.S. president.
