Vivek Ramaswamy Vows To Dismantle FBI And Revive American Pride

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy recently outlined his plans to dismantle government institutions like the FBI and revive American pride in an interview with “Fox News Sunday’s” anchor Shannon Bream. Ramaswamy, who pledged to pardon former President Trump if elected, believes that such actions are necessary to restore trust in the justice system.

Ramaswamy strongly criticized the Department of Justice for weaponizing the police force against individuals based on their political beliefs, claiming that this undermines the integrity of the justice system.

“Under my watch, we’ll make sure the FBI, first of all, doesn’t exist as an institution,” he declared.

Beyond his opposition to the FBI, Ramaswamy aims to streamline the government and reduce the influence of regulatory agencies. He vows to eliminate unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles that hinder the U.S. energy sector, thereby promoting economic growth and job creation. 

“By the time [I’m out of office], we will again have three branches of government in the U.S., not four. That will shut down the regulatory state,” he stated.

Ramaswamy has been vocal about his criticism of Trump’s indictment. Speaking with News Nation last week, he stated that the prosecution “reeks of politicization” as he pointed out the number of omissions in the indictment.

While some criticize him for his stance against the FBI’s investigations of political conservatives, including President Trump, the GOP presidential contender clarified that his motivations are not driven by personal gain. In fact, he believes that he would have an easier chance at winning his bid if President Trump were not a contender. 

Despite facing criticism, including claims that he is merely building a mailing list instead of genuinely running for president, Ramaswamy vehemently denied these accusations. Calling the accusations “laughable” and dismissing them as a “joke,” he revealed that he has invested over $10 million of his own money into his campaign and is fully committed to his candidacy. 

In addition to sharing his policy goals, Ramaswamy took time out of the interview to express deep concerns about the declining sense of American pride among the youth. He emphasizes the need to revive civic pride and instill a sense of patriotism in the next generation.

Expressing firm belief in the principles of conservatism, such as the existence of only two genders and the reality of God, Ramaswamy went ahead to warn against the negative impacts of businesses involving themselves in social disputes, highlighting the importance of apolitical spaces for fostering unity and safeguarding the nation’s democracy.

“Woke capitalism is bad for capitalism, but it’s also bad for American democracy,” he stated.
