Trump Offers Some Advice to Ramaswamy

Former President Trump is offering GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy some advice, who has made headlines since launching his campaign. 

During an interview on Glenn Beck, Trump advised Ramaswamy to be careful when trying to rip Democrats a new one, saying he is becoming too controversial. 

"He's starting to get out there a little bit. He's a little bit — getting a little bit controversial. I'd tell him to be a little bit careful. Some things you have to hold in just a little bit, right?" Trump said. "But he's got a lot of good energy, and he's been very nice to me."

Trump praised the GOP hopeful, saying that he has distinguished himself and that as a "young guy" being a "very intelligent person," Ramaswamy "could be some form of something." 

When asked whether Trump would consider the businessman his running mate, the 45th president declined to answer the question fully, only hailing him as a good guy. 

"Well, I think he's great. Look, anybody that said, I'm the best president in a generation. I don't know; you have to define generation. That's a long time," Trump continued. "He said it a couple of times. And he said it in 100 years. So I have to like a guy like that. You know, I can't get upset with him."

However, Ramaswamy has said he is not interested in being Trump's vice president. 

"See, this isn't about me. If this were about me, sure. That's a fine position for someone to have at my age. This is about reviving our country, and I can only reunite this country if I'm doing it from the White House as the leader and the face of our movement," Ramaswamy said. 

The 37-year-old went from being largely unknown to rapper Eminem threatening him with legal papers if he continued to use his music on the campaign trail. 

According to a FiveThirtyEight poll, 27 percent of Americans view Ramaswamy as a favorable candidate, while 20 percent view him as unfavorable. 

A separate poll shows Trump leading the pack by a relatively large number. 

The former president currently has 50.3 percent of the vote, with Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) trailing behind at 14.8 percent and Ramaswamy at 9.2 percent.
