The youngest Presidential candidate from the Republican Party Vivek Ramaswamy suggested that he would like to bring Elon Musk on as an advisor if elected President in the US Presidential elections 2024, according to The Hill.
The conservative entrepreneur said at a town hall in Iowa that he would bring in people with “a blank fresh impression” to provide guidance in his administration, including the billionaire owner of SpaceX, Tesla and X, Elon Musk, reported The Hill citing NBC News.
“I have enjoyed getting to know better Elon Musk recently. I expect him to be an interesting adviser of mine because he laid off 75 per cent of the employees at Twitter,” Ramaswamy said. He has previously complimented Musk’s management of the social media company ‘X’, formerly known as ‘Twitter’, adding that he would like to run the government the way Musk runs the company.
“What he did at Twitter is a good example of what I want to do to the administrative state,” Ramaswamy said in an interview on Fox News last week. “Take out the 75 per cent of the dead weight cost, improve the actual experience of what it’s supposed to do,” he added.
The Indian-American Presidential candidate further said, “He put an X through Twitter, I will put a big X through the administrative state. So, that’s where I am at on common tactics with Elon.”
