‘Won’t vote for you because you’re an Indian’: US author to Vivek Ramaswamy – Times of India

World'Won't vote for you because you're an Indian': US author to Vivek Ramaswamy - Times of India

NEW DELHI: US author and commentator Ann Coulter said that she would not have voted for the Republican candidate Vivek Ramaswamy in the Presidential elections because he was an “Indian”.
Speaking to the Indian-American, who was running for President, Coulter said on his podcast ‘Truth’, “I agreed with many, many things you said.. in fact probably more than most other candidates when you were running for president..but I still would not have voted for you because you’re an Indian”.
Responding to this, Ramaswamy later said on X, “I disagree with her but respect she had the guts to speak her mind. It was a riveting hour.”

Calling Ramaswamy “bright and articulate”, the US author said, “I guess I can call you articulate since you’re not an American black – can’t say that about them, it’s derogatory”.
The bit attracted reactions from people with one X user calling Coulter “Indophobic”, while the other a “bigot”.
“It would be interesting to hear her rationale for being a bigot”, a user wrote.
However, some users came in support of Coulter with one saying, Vivek, you made it clear that you want America to be more accessible to Indian immigrants at a time when immigration restriction is a popular issue. Ann is correct to point that you have a vested ethnic interest in facilitating the great replacement.”

Earlier this year, Ramaswamy quit the US presidential race backing Donald Trump after his underdog campaign in the Republican Party’s initial nominating contest in Iowa failed to gain significant traction.
“I called Donald Trump to tell him I congratulate him on his victory. Now, going forward, he will have my full endorsement for the presidency. And I think we’re going to do the right thing for this country. And so I’m going to ask you, to follow me in taking our America First movement to the next level,” Ramaswamy had said.
