38-year-old entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy is rising in the polls in the GOP Primary.
Voters are paying attention to Ramaswamy’s message as the next generation of an America First outsider.
And now Elon Musk praised Vivek Ramaswamy for one big reason.
Musk lauded Ramaswamy after Tucker Carlson posted his 45-minute interview with Ramaswamy on X – the app formerly known as Twitter.

In the interview, Ramaswamy explained his belief that the country faced a 1776 moment as a combination of lies from left-wing elites and failed policies such as lockdowns, socialist spending leading to inflation, woke ideology in schools, a wide open southern border, and the weaponization of the government pushed America to a tipping a point and that the public cried out for real leadership.
“There’s something going on. We’re like in the 1775, spring of 1776 moment in this country,” Ramaswamy said. “I think that people are hungry,” Ramaswamy told Carlson.
Ramaswamy added he was running for President as leader looking to revive the ideals of 1776 and unite the country around a shared purpose of patriotism, respect for the family, and rejecting identity politics.
“Now, the form I want to see it play out in is reviving those shared ideals that unite us. That set the nation into motion in 1776 that I think are innate to our nature as human beings, as Americans. I think there’s a hunger for a revival of those ideals,” Ramaswamy continued.
Ramaswamy told Carlson there is so much distrust of government and institutions because leaders routinely lied to the public thinking Americans could not handle the truth.
The Presidential contender cited Dr. Fauci and other lies about the origins of COVID, the Biden family’s corrupt foreign business deals, the FBI suppressing the manifesto from a transgender domestic terrorist who killed six innocents – including three small children – at a Nashville Christian school, and the lies about what happened on January 6 as examples of the ruling class keeping the truth from the people out of fear as to how they would react.
“I think that there’s a bipartisan consensus in this country right now. That we the people, we can’t handle the truth,” Ramaswamy said. “My basic view in this campaign is we can handle the truth,” he said, mentioning topics like the Biden family’s corrupt business dealings, the January 6 riot at the US Capitol, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, China’s growing threat to the United States, the origin of covid, and the trans-identified Nashville shooter.”
Ramaswamy moved into third place in the GOP polls and outside of Donald Trump, Ramaswamy is the candidate with momentum behind him.
And Elon Musk does not think it is hard to see why.
