Conservative commentator Tucker Carlson expressed support for Vivek Ramaswamy as a potential Vice Presidential candidate alongside Donald Trump, praising Ramaswamy’s evolving authenticity in his positions.
Ramaswamy, known for his “anti-woke” stance, has been considered a possible running mate for Trump due to their past interactions and Trump’s positive remarks about him.

Ramaswamy’s political stance may position him as a strong candidate for the Vice Presidency.
“I kind of like Vivek,” Carlson said. “I think he’s one of those people who everyone beats up on… for being he’s a phony and all this stuff.”
“I feel like Vivek’s positions have gotten much more sincere since the beginning of this.”
“I watch him with Nikki Haley and I’m like, ‘this is a guy who’s very offended by her views.’ He’s not attacking her because she’s a woman, he’s attacking her because he actually thinks her views are terrible for the country he lives in. And I love that.”
Ramaswamy has intensified his criticism of Nikki Haley, branding her a “RINO” and challenging her foreign policy stance.
“Her real foreign policy experience wasn’t her time at the UN,” Vivek said of Haley.
“It was the millions she made afterwards. After she steps down, her family starts a military contracting firm: Allied Defense LLC.”
“If the mainstream press were doing their [job], Allied Defense should have to disclose who their clients are.”
“These are not the people, whether it’s Biden or Haley, these are not the people we should want deciding whether to send your kids to die fighting somebody else’s war,” he said, blasting her for taking under-the-radar speaking fees and stock options.
“Look, the bombs explode, her bank account grows. That’s Nikki Haley’s business model. As far as I know, the woman’s never made an honest dollar in her life.”
