Entrepreneur and GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy described the GOP establishment as a “bunch of kleptocrats” who hold the key to the future of Americans.
Ramaswamy, while speaking on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Saturday, suggested that the GOP establishment is against him because he refused to be a “stooge” to the establishment.
“It’s a bunch of kleptocrats in this country that are actually wielding the keys to how our future is determined, and I refuse to be a stooge of that establishment,” Ramaswamy told host and Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matthew Boyle. “That’s why they’re coming for me. Ronna [McDaniel] says they won’t give me another cent of their money, but the real irritation is, I’m the guy that doesn’t need it because I’ve put in tens of millions of dollars of my own family’s hard-earned money. We didn’t inherit it. We made it through hard work and in building successful businesses. But that’s what it takes to break this system.”

Ramaswamy also hit out at his fellow GOP presidential candidates, specifically Niki Haley, for caring more about Ukraine than the American people they are supposed to serve.

“That’s not just from the RNC. That’s from the other candidates,” Ramaswamy told Boyle. “I mean, the problem with the Nikki Haleys of the world is it’s beautiful how much she cares about a random Ukrainian kleptocrat who can buy a bigger house with our taxpayer money. The problem is she doesn’t give a second care about Americans here at home. And that’s not just her, but that’s Lindsey Graham, it’s Mitch McConnell. It’s Karl Rove to John Bolton to Chris Christie to pretty much everybody else on that debate stage, Tim Scott, you name it. It’s Dick Cheney 2.0 crawling all over that debate stage, and I think that that’s the issue with the modern Republican Party. So my view is pretty simple: as the next U.S. president, my moral obligation is exclusively to Americans here at home, period. I launched the night before the debate, we did a rally in Miami.
