Vivek Ramaswamy Trump Debate Attendance: Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has reconsidered whether former President Donald Trump will attend the first round of primary debates. Over the weekend, Ramaswamy altered his mind and said he didn’t care if the Republican frontrunner skipped the first debates.
Ramaswamy has indicated he expects Trump to attend the early sessions, but he appears unconcerned with his absence. He told a Semafor reporter, “This is my chance to show the country who I am, and I have no problem with whatever decision he wants to make.” Great news if he’s on that list. If not, no problem.
A Twitter user found a May 5 video in which Ramaswamy predicted Trump’s attendance at the debate. Nice thing to happen. He remarked, “I fully expect to see Donald Trump on that debate stage.” He added, “Donald Trump has never been a coward, so I’m confident he’ll be there. He doesn’t always flee trouble. If he doesn’t attend the debate, it will be the best evidence that Donald Trump is not the same as in 2016.
His campaign staff claimed Ramaswamy’s recent words don’t affect his views, even though they seem different. Communications director Tricia McLaughlin stated, “This is not the only debate.”
Ramaswamy reiterated his new viewpoint on Fox News Live on Sunday, saying he doesn’t mind if Trump doesn’t participate in the first round of debates.
No one knows if Donald Trump will attend the first Republican discussion in Milwaukee, hosted by Fox News. Republican National Committee organizes primary debates. Candidates must vow to support the Republican Party’s presidential nominee and not participate in illegal debates. Notably, Trump has not signed this promise. He replied, “Why sign it? There are three or four presidential candidates I would not vote for. Because of this, a difficulty exists.”
