Former President Donald Trump continues to have a staunch defender in Vivek Ramaswamy, the first-time GOP candidate who has risen in the polls and captured the hearts of the president’s loyal followers by sticking by his side. That didn’t change during a recent interview on ABC where Ramaswamy lashed out at George Stephanopoulos for questioning whether Trump, if convicted of a felony, would be eligible to serve a second term.
Appearing on “Meet the Press” Sunday, the dark horse candidate expounded on his views that mainstream media is looking for any excuse to deny Trump a fair victory against President Joe Biden who he leads in some current polls.
Asked by Stephanopoulos if he supports Trump because “other people are voting for a convicted felon,” Ramaswamy gave a brief laugh before tearing into the former Clinton White House aide.
“My bottom line, George, is that I will vote for the person who I think is best positioned to move this country forward. I do not think that is Joe Biden… Even though I disagree with many of my rivals on the issues, I think any of them will be better than Joe Biden or Kamala Harris to move this nation
