Ramaswamy spoke for just about 10 minutes before taking questions/comments from supporters. He told his supporters that he’d promised them he would tell the truth and be realistic, and that acknowledging hard truths required him to say that there was no path for him to be the nominee. He told his supporters that he is committed to America First principles and that Trump is the candidate who will do things like get rid of the deep state, restore national pride, and eliminate a chunk of federal bureaucracy.
He ended his comments by assuring supporters that this is just the start of their movement – then saying, “Let’s start the music and get the party started!”
