Who is Vivek Ramaswamy- one of the most popular presidential candidates in USA

New faces in American politics always become the center of discussion, and this time a person named Vivek Ramaswami is also included in this list. He is a leading candidate for the presidency of the United States and is highly admired for his personality and thoughtfulness. Vivek Ramaswamy launched his 2024 presidential campaign on February 21, 2023, as a candidate in the 2024 Republican primary. He formally announced his candidacy in an interview on the Tucker Carlson Tonight Show.

In his campaign announcement, Ramaswami presented himself as a conservative with a vision of American national identity. Ramaswamy, 38, was born in Ohio to immigrant parents from southern India. He was raised in the Hindu religion by his parents, but went to a Roman Catholic high school. He earned a biology degree from Harvard University before attending Yale Law School.

Ramaswamy worked as a hedge fund investor and says he made several million dollars even before he graduated from Yale. In 2014, he founded his own biotech company, Roivant Sciences, which purchased patents from larger companies for drugs that had not yet been fully developed and marketed. He resigned as CEO in 2021. In 2023, business magazine Forbes estimated Ramaswamy’s wealth to be $630 million.

Ramaswami says he was a libertarian during college. While at Harvard, he performed liberal-themed rap songs under the stage name Da Wack. He has reprised some of his rap skills in the campaign this year. Her performance of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” at the Iowa State Fair in August went viral on social media.

According to Politico, Ramaswamy was inspired by Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election, and wanted to run with “an entrepreneurial spirit, unconventional ideas, and some hope.” Ramaswami considered candidacy in the 2022 United States Senate election in Ohio, but decided not to run. From that point on, he was seen as a potential future presidential candidate. If elected, he would become the first Indian-American President and the youngest person to hold the presidency.
