'He will, I am sure, Endorse me': Trump predicts rival Ramaswamy will back his presidential bid

Former President Donald Trump has predicted that GOP primary rival Vivek Ramaswamy will eventually endorse him for president.

"He will, I am sure, Endorse me. But Vivek is a good man, and is not done yet!" Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social.

Ramaswamy and other candidates who participated in the Republican National Committee-affiliated presidential primary debates earlier this year were required to sign a pledge to support the party's eventual presidential nominee.

NBC News has reported that Ramaswamy's campaign has ceased spending on TV advertising.

"Presidential TV ad spending is idiotic, low-ROI & a trick that political consultants use to bamboozle candidates who suffer from low IQ. We're doing it differently. Spending $$ in a way that follows data…apparently a crazy idea in US politics. Big surprise coming on Jan 15," Ramaswamy tweeted.

January 15 is the date of the Iowa Republican presidential caucus, which will mark the first contest in the GOP presidential nominating process.

"We are focused on bringing out the voters we've identified — best way to reach them is using addressable advertising, mail, text, live calls and doors to communicate with our voters on Vivek's vision for America, making their plan to caucus and turning them out," Ramaswamy campaign press secretary Tricia McLaughlin noted, according to NBC News. "As you know, this isn’t what most campaigns look like. We have intentionally structured this way so that we have the ability to be nimble and hypertargeted in our ad spending," she noted.

The New York Times reported that McLaughlin indicated that the campaign will still do some advertising via digital TV providers.

Ramaswamy declared last week that he would withdraw from the Colorado Republican presidential primary unless Trump is permitted to appear on the ballot.
