Vivek Ramaswamy addresses BIGGEST CONTROVERSIES about his past

The Glenn Beck Program

There’s no question that 2024 GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has been reflecting the voice of disgruntled Americans who no longer trust that the government is operating in their best interest.

However, there have been several controversies surrounding his campaign — and Glenn Beck wants answers.

Luckily, Vivek doesn’t shy away from controversy and sat down with Glenn to address the rumors.

“A Wikipedia editor alleges that you paid to have your Wikipedia page edited to remove you receiving the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans and your role in Ohio’s COVID-19 response team,” Glenn starts. “Is that true, and if it is, why?”

Vivek explains that before he ran for president, “there were a lot of falsehoods” on his Wikipedia page.

These falsehoods included everything from details about his birth to his wife’s name.

“So, before I ran, yes, I wanted to make sure that the public was aware of exactly what the right facts were,” he explains.

As for the COVID-19 response team in Ohio, Vivek claims that "there wasn’t actually ever a formally titled body.”

“There was a lieutenant governor in Ohio, who remains a friend of mine to this day, who asked me if he could call me from time to time to get basic advice through the process,” he says. “I helped him with the reopening plan. That was a short version of the help that I provided him. So I’m actually proud of that.”

Vivek also explains that he was “pro-reopening” and that he was always “dead set against” lockdowns and mandates.

As for the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans, he explains that he received that scholarship at the age of 24 but that, much to his chagrin, it was listed at the top of his accomplishments on Wikipedia until recently.

“At the age of 37, having achieved a lot of things,” Vivek explains that he didn’t want the first thing on his Wikipedia page to be a “random scholarship” he got at the age of 24. “That’s manipulation,” he says.

“One of the things I’ve learned in this process, Glenn, is there's a lot of left-wing media manipulation, but there’s media manipulation 360 degrees, driven by, not just fake-news media, but a lot of fake, establishment candidates too, who are threatened by my rise.”
