Ro Khanna Says Vivek Ramaswamy Is “Dangerous”
India-West News Desk
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ro Khanna has strongly criticized Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy, denouncing him as “dangerous to our democracy” while saying both he and the GOP were failing the American public.
He was reacting to Vivek Ramaswamy’s December 13 CNN town hall in Iowa.
“Vivek’s podcast of a campaign would be funny if it weren’t so deeply dangerous to our democracy,” remarked Khanna even while bemoaning Ramaswamy’s penchant for sensationalism, stating, “he chose to engage in sensationalism for clicks that have become the currency to get ahead in today’s Republican Party.”
Labeling the Republican Party as “unserious,” Khanna voiced his support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. He emphasized the accomplishments of Democrats, citing historic legislation on issues such as abortion rights, gun violence, better jobs, and lower costs. According to Khanna, these are the actual issues that matter to the American people.
During the town hall, Ramaswamy said that if elected president, he would send undocumented migrants back to their countries of origin. “I do believe that anybody who’s in this country illegally needs to be returned to their country of origin,” he asserted, also advocating for an end to birthright citizenship for the children of illegal migrants.
Among other things, he advocated conspiracy theories that January 6 was a government plot. He wanted to talk to Putin and give Russia the territory it has now occupied.
