Donald Trump Rules Out Vivek Ramaswamy as VP Pick — But Here’s the Cabinet Post He Would Be ‘Ideal’ For

Former President Donald Trump, frontrunner in the 2024 presidential election campaign, is not considering tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy as his vice presidential running mate, according to a new report.

“Donald Trump has ruled out Vivek Ramaswamy as his running mate and is instead eyeing the entrepreneur for a Cabinet job, according to people familiar with the matter, as the Republican presidential nominee sizes up a possible administration,” Bloomberg reported.

“Trump personally told Ramaswamy he won’t be his vice presidential pick, according to people briefed on the discussion, but is considering him for posts including Homeland Security secretary. Some Trump allies see Ramaswamy as ideal for the job because they say he excels at public speaking and, as an Indian-American son of an immigrant, could neutralize criticism of sweeping immigration restrictions,” the report added.

Bloomberg also reported that Donald Trump is considering ousted Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy as his possible chief of staff.

In January, Ramaswamy suspended his presidential campaign and endorsed Donald Trump for president.

“As of this movement we are going to suspend this presidential campaign,” Vivek told the crowd. “There is no path forward for me to be president absent things that we don’t want to see happen in this country.”

Ramaswamy went on to announce that in light of his decision to end his campaign, he would be endorsing Trump for the Republican nomination moving forward.

“Tonight I called Donald Trump to … congratulate him on his victory and now moving forward he will have my full endorsement for the presidency and I think we are doing the right thing for this country,” Ramaswamy said. “So I am going to ask you to follow me in taking our America First movement to the next level.”

The decision comes just days after Trump went after Ramaswamy, saying he is “not MAGA” and that his campaign has been “deceitful,” according to a post on Truth Social.

“Vivek started his campaign as a great supporter, ‘the best President in generations,’ etc. Unfortunately, now all he does is disguise his support in the form of deceitful campaign tricks,” Trump wrote.

In February, Vice Presidential speculation mounted for Vivek Ramaswamy upon appearing at a Trump event in mid-February.

“That’s the ticket!!!” Baroness von M replied.

“I wonder if vivek will be vice president? I have never been so impatient in my life to know who the vp pick is. Waiting sucks,” Sassafrass84 said.

“VP energy?” News Nomad remarked.

“I hope Trump picks Vivek for VP,” said an account named Deep State.

“Vivek as VP would be [fire],” commented Rasta Rocket.

“I hope this is the ticket: Trump/Vivek,” said Steven Hasty.

That may not turn out to be the case. But Homeland Secretary Vivek Ramaswamy? I am sure a lot of Trump supporters would be on board with this Cabinet post.
