Ramaswamy Outs What He Called Haley’s ‘Plot’
Former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy says he knows former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s strategy. In a tweet to X, he stated that the presidential nominee-hopeful’s “plot” is getting more obvious with time.
“Nikki Haley is *not even on the ballot* in the Nevada GOP caucus & thus will get 0 delegates from NV,” he wrote, adding, “Nikki Haley is *not even on the ballot* in the Nevada GOP caucus & thus will get 0 delegates from NV.”
Nikki Haley is *not even on the ballot* in the Nevada GOP caucus & thus will get 0 delegates from NV. Here’s the ugly TRUTH: she isn’t even trying to beat Trump. Her sole strategy is to *eliminate* Trump. The plot is now more obvious than ever & it’s pathetic that no one sees it

Ramaswamy’s tweet comes as Haley insists on staying in the race despite calls for her to drop out. In her post-primary speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday, she said that the race is far from over, stating, “They’re falling all over themselves, saying this race is over. Well, I have news for all of them. New Hampshire is first in the nation. It is not the last.”
“There are dozens of states left to go, and the next one is my sweet state of South Carolina,” she added even though the next primary is in Nevada.
She then went on to face her rival, former President Donald Trump, saying, “With Donald Trump, you have one bout of chaos after another. This court case, that controversy, this tweet, that senior moment. You can’t fix Joe Biden’s chaos with Republican chaos.”
While a number of Republican leaders have called for the consolidation of the GOP around Trump since his win in Iowa, Ramaswamy led the direct call for Haley to drop her campaign, as he said this during an appearance on Fox News right after Trump won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.
“In my view, the general election really begins tonight. I think the Republican primary, for all intents and purposes, is over tonight. And I think the party and the country are better off if we see that for what it is,” he told the outlet.
Speaking to NBC News’ Tom Llamas during the primary, he also said that ending the GOP primary soon with Trump as nominee is an “important step” towards uniting the country.
Since then, many top Republicans have called for the former U.N. Ambassador to give up her bid. Even RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says she does not see a path for Haley on the presidential route, as voters have made their choice clear.
In her words, “I think she’s run a great campaign, but I do think there is a message that’s coming out from the voters which is very clear: We need to unite around our eventual nominee, which is going to be Donald Trump, and we need to make sure we beat Joe Biden.”
