Vivek Ramaswamy Claims to Be Only ‘Non-Neocon’ Candidate, Criticizes Nikki Haley

The div with the ID post-1229062 contains the content: 2024 Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy came out swinging against fellow candidate Nikki Haley in Wednesday’s GOP debate. At the event, he said he was the only candidate on stage who was not as “neocon” as other candidates. A neocon is a hawkish Republican with the foreign policy vision of George W. Bush or Dick Cheney. Ramaswamy expressed concern over the possibility of the country being drawn into armed conflict with Russia and China by the current neocon establishment. He criticized Haley, suggesting that she would send American troops to die to create new wars. At the debate, Trump was seen as the leading candidate, with additional participants including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Trump himself has indicated a lack of interest in participation in the GOP presidential debates slated for the future.
