(TheConservativeTimes.org) – Former President Donald Trump expressed his thoughts on the youngest 2024 presidential hopeful in the Republican field, Vivek Ramaswamy, saying that he may need to tone down his rhetoric due to its controversial nature.
The former president said that Ramaswamy “looks great” on Tuesday, August 22 on conservative political commentator Glenn Beck’s show. Beck asked Trump whether he would ever consider Ramaswamy to be his vice president should he win the Republican nomination. Trump responded by saying that Ramaswamy demonstrated high intelligence and with “a lot of talent” and “good energy.”
He also said that Ramaswamy could be a “form of something,” alluding to his openness to the prospect of Ramaswamy serving in a position in a second Trump administration should Trump successfully unseat President Joe Biden in 2024.
However, the GOP frontrunner did have some criticism for Ramaswamy, saying that his recently controversial statements could land him in hot water, particularly with the media. This is, of course, a bit ironic coming from Trump, as the former president has been no stranger to controversy over the years, and has a reputation for reveling in it.
Such news comes as Trump is most likely embroiled in more controversy than ever, as he is now facing four criminal indictments. Two indictments come from the Biden administration’s Department of Justice, with Special Counsel Jack Smith seeking to nail Trump on charges pertaining to the mishandling of classified documents, as well as conspiring to defraud the U.S., particularly in his alleged role in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riots.
The former president also faces charges from New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is attempting to turn what are normally misdemeanor charges into felonies in his effort to nail Trump on his alleged falsification of business records. Trump was also most recently indicted in Fulton County, Georgia, being accused of attempting to unlawfully overthrow the 2020 presidential election in that state, after Biden won it narrowly. This case also resulted in Trump’s mugshot being taken, the first ever mugshot of a U.S. president.
