Former 2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, turned Trump supporter, says Americans dealing with economic hardships can find common ground across both parties.  

“Prices have gone up. Interest rates and mortgage rates have gone up. Wages have not kept up pace. And that’s why Americans reject Bidennomics. They understand how they’ve been affected. And you know what? I think economic growth can be a unifying agenda,” he said during an appearance with Larry Kudlow on FOX Business. 

“The Democrats have rejected it. I think it’s our time as Republicans to once again unapologetically embrace that as our message. And I think we will unite a lot of Americans, regardless of Partizan affiliation,” he added.
