(AmericanProsperity.com) – The presidential campaign of conservative businessman Vivek Ramaswamy blasted conservative commentator Ann Coulter on August 24 after she made what some are calling discriminatory comments against him. The author and political analyst said Ramaswamy’s back-and-forth with former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in the RNC primary debate was a “Hindu business.” Her comments against both GOP presidential candidates were widely criticized on social media.
In a statement sent to media outlet The Hill, Ramaswamy’s communications director Tricia McLaughlin said the campaign won’t waste time with Coulter, adding she can say “whatever she wants.” After that, McLaughlin said that the conservative businessman has traveled all across the United States and has received “warm support” from many Christian voters. She then said the GOP leader feels grateful for that support and promises to deliver if he becomes president in 2024.
In another part of the statement, the communications director told The Hill that Ramaswamy “shares and lives” by Judeo-Christian values, which were the ones that founded the United States. She also pointed out that the way the conservative businessman lives his family life will be a positive example for his children and grandchildren.
Coulter delivered her remarks on her Twitter account, right after Haley and Ramaswamy started to discuss different issues. One of these was the war in Ukraine; the conservative business promised to stop providing aid to Kyiv. The former South Carolina governor said she disagreed with that stance and noted that Ramaswamy didn’t have any foreign policy experience.
Once the discussion ended, Coulter not only made the “Hindu business remarks” but also said this wasn’t Americans’ fight. While Ramaswamy is Hindu, Haley isn’t. She was raised as a Sikh and later converted to Christianity. However, this isn’t the first time the author and commentator made similar remarks about the Indian heritage of both GOP candidates.
Back in February, Coulter said during an interview that Haley should leave America and return to her country. She made those comments a couple of days after Haley announced she was running for president. Many criticized the conservative commentator, as the former South Carolina governor was born and raised in the United States.
