Ramaswamy Says the Government Routinely Lies to the Public

(AmericanProsperity.com) – GOP presidential candidate and conservative businessman Vivek Ramaswamy blasted former Vice President Mike Pence after Pence criticized him for doubting the 9/11 Commission Report. In an August 8 Twitter post, Ramaswamy mocked Pence for feeling “deeply offended” about his mistrust in the government regarding the report. After that, Ramaswamy wrote that what he finds offensive is that the US government lies to the people.

The conservative businessman also said that the truth that makes so many politicians feel uncomfortable is that the government lied about Saudi Arabia’s involvement in 9/11. He then claimed that no one could ignore this issue, as the FBI declassified in 2021 different documents that revealed the Saudi connections with some of the planes’ hijackers.

During an interview with the Manchester Union-Leader, the former vice president and GOP presidential candidate said he strongly disagreed with Ramaswamy. Pence suggested that Ramaswamy’s opinions about 9/11 had no credibility as he was “in grade school” during the terrorist attack. The conservative businessman would have been 16 years old on 9/11.

In his Twitter post, Ramaswamy said that government officials keep lying about different matters of “public importance.” These included knowledge about “UAPs,” how people’s money is being spent in Ukraine, the manifesto of the Nashville trans shooter, and even Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Ramaswamy added that what fuels “rampant public distrust” are not only these “lies” but also the way the mainstream media is complicit by accepting the “prevailing narrative.” He pointed out that what lends “plausibility” to the unlikely claim that 9/11 was an “inside job” is the way the government lies about “Saudi involvement.” Finally, the presidential candidate said Pence should know that the American people aren’t trusting the government because “the government doesn’t trust the people.”

According to the latest Real Clear Politics average of national polls, Ramaswamy is the third most popular candidate in the Republican primaries with 6 percent of support. Former President Donald Trump has 53.7 percent and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has 15.7 percent.
