It’s Time to Have a Serious Talk About George Soros Protégé Vivek Ramaswamy | 1 Aug 2023 | You can scrub the globalism off of a Republican presidential candidate’s Wikipedia bio, but you can’t take the globalism out of the candidate’s heart. That’s the message that Republican voters should take away from GOP primary candidate Vivek Ramaswamy’s appearance on a Twitter Spaces event over the weekend. Ramaswamy stated that it was a mistake for President Trump to pull the U.S. out of the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement that was drafted by Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and Barack Obama. There it is. Vivek Ramaswamy has shown his true self: a globalist… Globalists like Vivek Ramaswamy will tell you that multinational “free trade” agreements always benefit both countries. That’s just a lie. It benefits the companies that can afford to ship their operations overseas, to countries like China or Vietnam or Brunei where they pay their workers slave wages. American middle-class workers can’t compete with slaves in other countries.
