Vivek Ramaswamy Still in VP Contention, Confirms He Will Be in Atlanta For the Debate


Former GOP Presidential candidate and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy confirms that he will be in Atlanta on Thursday for the debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden. 


Ramaswamy also explained how Trump will unify the country:

President Trump’s going to unite this country in a different way. Success is unifying, excellence is unifying, so growing our economy and fixing our border crisis — those are not just policy solutions, those are steps toward reuniting the United States of America.

He added that he believes the CNN debate will be 3-on-1:

I’m gonna be with him in Atlanta — I’m looking forward to it, but I have full confidence he has led this country — he led this country in the first two years against a Russia collusion hoax and an impeachment hoax. If he can do that, he can handle himself in what will be a 3-on-1 debate, make no mistake about it … but I’m confident President Trump can nonetheless handle himself even when he’s debating against three people, not just one. 

On Wednesday morning, Ramaswamy appeared on CNN and spoke to host John Berman about Thursday’s debate. 


He said:

I told President Trump and I’ll tell you as well, I give him a lot of credit for doing this debate on the terms that were effectively set by Biden, hosted by CNN, in Atlanta without a live audience, would the equivalent of Joe Biden agreeing to do a Fox News hosted debate in Alabama with three-thousand live audience members, so I give Donald Trump a lot of credit for that. If you’re going to lead the country, you gotta be able to show up and that’s exactly what he’s doing.

Why is this newsworthy? Trump said his Vice Presidential pick will be in Atlanta during the debate.

Ramaswamy is not the only one who will be at the watch party. Doug Burgum also confirmed that he will be in Atlanta, as well as Dr. Ben Carson, Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and J.D. Vance (R-OH), among other prospective choices. 


Vivek was not in the mix for quite some time, but he seems to have emerged as one of the favorites, as well as Burgum, Vance, and Carson. 

These were the VP odds nearly a week ago:

But selecting somebody who has not been mentioned for some time would definitely be a Trump thing to do and select the person that people least expected.
