Businessman and 2024 Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy served up a bipartisan, pro-America message aimed at dispelling “the dividing line” that won over social media.
Unlike the frontrunner, former President Donald Trump, the entrepreneur and author of “Woke, Inc.” has yet to build the sort of nationwide name ID that even Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is playing catchup on. However, that is bound to change with a strategy of messaging aimed right at the culture war.
Wednesday morning, Ramaswamy took to social media and posted a video outlining where he thinks the true schism in the country is.
“The dividing line in America right now isn’t between rich and poor, black and white, or even Democrat and Republican. It’s between those who are fundamentally pro-American and those who are anti-American,” he tweeted.

“The dividing line in American politics today is not between Republicans and Democrats; certainly not between black and white; certainly not the divisions that they would have you believe, in this country,” the minute-long clip began. “I think it has to do with whether or not you are pro-American or are you anti-American, and I think there are strains of both in this country.”
“To me, being pro-American means that you believe in the ideals that set this nation into motion 250 years ago. Do you believe in basic ideas like merit, free speech and open debate? Do you believe in the importance of self-governance over aristocracy?” he asked. “This is part of what it means to be American.”
The presidential hopeful concluded, “Are you willing to stand behind policies that advance those principles or are you, as I think many people in this country — some people in this country — increasingly are, anti-American insofar as it means that you’re apologizing for the existence of those values?”
With 500,000 followers on Twitter, not only had Ramaswamy racked up over 40,000 views on his video in the initial hours after it went up, but the response from many who watched was overwhelmingly positive.
“Vivek Ramaswamy is stating what true Americans are feeling!” one person responded as another offered up, “[Not gonna lie] the more I see from you the more I like. Keep it up!”
Another said, “I can’t remember the last time I had a 100% agreement with a candidate for office…How f**king refreshing.”

dude…hitting on all the important points and boiling it down to reality. You are winning me over.

Vivek is hyper eloquent, hyper prepared, hyper educated, and hyper successful. He is honest and solutions oriented. He needs to connect with small groups of voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. If he wins even one of those two states, he will be unstoppable.

I like that he is talking and ABLE to talk about real topics and concerns in this country. So refreshing compared to the gibberish we are forced to believe is true by the media and our so called President.

Earlier this week, Ramaswamy had notched another victory in the culture war debate when he confronted NBC’s Chuck Todd over gender ideology. As reported, during an in-person interview Sunday on “Meet the Press,” the host had challenged his guest on gender being binary.
“Are you confident that you know that gender is as binary as you’re describing it? Are you confident?” Todd asked.
“I am,” came the candidate’s reply before the host pushed again, “Do you know this as a scientist?”
Ramaswamy, who studied biology at Harvard University before founding his own biopharmaceutical company, detailed, “Well, there’s two X chromosomes if you’re a woman, and an X and a Y that means you’re a man.”
When Todd endeavored to tout the idea of gender as a spectrum, the guest continued, “Chuck, I respectfully disagree. Gender dysphoria for most of our history, all the way through the DSM-5, has been characterized as a mental health disorder. And I don’t think it’s compassionate to affirm that. I think that’s cruelty.”
