Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy told Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC) “was a China Stooge” who tries “to talk tough now” and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) “really isn’t that different.”
Host and Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle and Ramaswamy spoke about a number of storylines coming out of the debate in Miami, Florida, on Wednesday night, including some tense back-and-forth exchanges he had with Former Gov. Nikki Haley (R-SC), and one she had with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). Ramaswamy also contended his opponents bore responsibility for the lack of focus on domestic policy issues in the first hour.
At one point in the debate, Haley and DeSantis knocked each other on Chinese businesses or subsidiaries in their respective states under each of their tenures as governor. Ramaswamy, who told Boyle Saturday that Haley “was absolutely a China stooge until she tried to talk tough now, but Ron is really not that different,” was a buffer in the exchange, hitting both of them on the front.
