Ramaswamy Ruled Out as VP for Trump Ticket

A possible administration is starting to come into focus for Donald Trump if he wins the 2024 election.

We still don’t have a name for Trump’s VP, but that announcement is expected to come soon.

One name we know that is no longer in consideration is Vivek Ramaswamy, although he does appear to be in the running for a Cabinet position for Trump.

What to do About Vivek

My regular readers know I have no love lost for Vivek Ramaswamy, as I believe he is nothing more than a grifter attaching himself to Trump and had planned on doing that from the very first day of his candidacy.

Ramaswamy was sucking up to Trump since day one.

What was surprising, however, was how quickly Trump changed his attitude about Ramaswamy. He called him a fraud before the first voting states and then embraced him after Vivek endorsed Trump.

There has since been a lot of talk about Ramaswamy being Trump’s VP, which, thankfully, is not going to happen.

Sources inside the Trump campaign have confirmed that Vivek is no longer in the running, but he is being considered for a top Cabinet position.

Vivek’s office responded to the news, stating, “There’s a lot of press speculation, but I can tell you Vivek’s top focus is making sure we get President Trump elected so that we can take America First to the next level.

“This country would be lucky to have him serve in the next administration and beyond. In the meantime, Vivek is focused on driving change in the private sector and reforming our economy, including by continuing to push back against the ESG cancer in corporate America.”

Vivek is reportedly being considered for DHS Secretary, but I don’t see how he is even qualified for such a role, having never worked in the government or showing any experience with immigration in any way, shape, or form.

There are far better candidates in Congress who could serve this role, preferably someone from Texas who has experience with this issue.

I would put my top contenders as Reps. McCaul (R-TX) and Clay Higgins (R-TX) from the House, or Senators Rand Paul (R-KY), Rick Scott (R-FL), and Josh Hawley (R-MO) from the Senate.

I have been openly campaigning for Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) for VP, and I can see Speaker Emeritus Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Trump’s Chief of Staff.

I expect Trump and Nikki Haley to eventually kiss and make up, with her being a possible Secretary of State for Trump, which will draw a lot of groans from MAGA, but Trump may make such a move to get Haley’s endorsement.

That is about as far as I have gotten, and I really don’t want to speculate further until we see who Trump gets as his VP, as I believe that will make the picture much clearer in terms of the formation of Trump’s cabinet members.
