Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy suggested Friday if elected in 2024, he would run the government like tech billionaire Elon Musk runs the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.
“What [Musk] did at Twitter is a good example of what I want to do to the administrative state,” Ramaswamy said in an interview with Fox News. “Take out the 75 percent of the dead weight cost, improve the actual experience of what it’s supposed to do.”
Musk previously backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s presidential candidacy and even helped him announce his presidential candidacy on Twitter Spaces in May. His comments on Ramaswamy, however, signaled he may not be all-in on the Florida governor as once thought.
Pointing to Musk’s release of what was dubbed “The Twitter Files,” Ramaswamy said he would similarly release state action files.
