DES MOINES, Iowa (Diya TV) — Former President Donald Trump hinted at a potential alliance with his former GOP adversary, Vivek Ramaswamy, following Ramaswamy’s withdrawal from the presidential race post-Iowa caucuses. The Indian-American tech entrepreneur, who suspended his campaign, joined Trump at a New Hampshire rally, where he received a endorsement from the GOP frontrunner.

As Trump praised Ramaswamy’s journey from humble beginnings to a strong political presence, chants of “Veep!” erupted from the crowd. Trump expressed surprise at Ramaswamy’s endorsement, calling him a “fantastic guy” and announcing, “He’s going to be working with us, and he’ll be working with us for a long time,” prompting cheers from supporters. Ramaswamy, a biotech entrepreneur, responded on social media, emphasizing unity with an “America-First” movement.

The specifics of Ramaswamy’s potential role, whether in Trump’s campaign or a prospective administration, remain uncertain. When asked about serving as vice president, Ramaswamy stated, “I want to serve this country any way I can.” Despite his Iowa setback, where he secured only 8% of the vote and placed fourth, Ramaswamy urged unity behind Trump for the upcoming general election.

Trump criticized other contenders, including former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, whom he labeled a “disaster.” Ramaswamy’s endorsement follows a less-than-expected performance at the Iowa caucuses, where Trump achieved a record-breaking 51% support. Despite withdrawing, Ramaswamy’s campaign was notable for its extensive efforts in Iowa, completing the “Full Grassley” twice, visiting all 99 counties at least twice, and hosting more campaign events than any other candidate.
