Nikki Haley

Former U.N. Amb. Nikki Haley outright mocked Vivek Ramaswamy’s defense for starting a TikTok account after being encouraged to do so by controversial YouTuber Jake Paul – as the entrepreneur became a punching bag for several GOP hopefuls.

When asked at Wednesday’s Republican debate by moderator Stuart Varney if it was presidential to be so ‘easily persuaded by an influencer,’ Ramaswamy argued that Republicans needed to win the next election and they would do so by ‘reaching the next generation of young Americans where they are.’ 

‘This is infuriating because TikTok is one of the most dangerous social media apps that we could have and what you’ve got …,’ Haley interjected. ‘Honestly everytime I hear you I feel a little bit dumber from what you say,’ she said. 

That exchange came after South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott segued from answering a question on birthright citizenship to bopping the 38-year-old political newcomer on the head over his business deals in China – linking them to Hunter Biden. 

Former Vice President Mike Pence also had some choice words for the tech entrepreneur, who said if elected he’d likely tap ‘probably many of the people on this stage’ to serve in a future Ramaswamy administration.

‘Let me level with all of you, I’m the new guy here and so I know I have to earn your trust,’ Ramaswamy told the crowd. ‘What do you see? You see a young man who’s in a bit of a hurry, maybe a little ambitious, bit of a know-it-all it seems at times.’

‘I’m here to tell you I don’t know it all,’ Ramaswamy assured potential GOP voters. 

Haley made it clear that she agreed. 

‘We can’t trust you, we can’t trust you,’ she said, pointing at Ramaswamy’s previous business with the Chinese. ‘It smells bad, I don’t appreciate it,’ she said later Wednesday night during a post-debate interview with Fox’s Sean Hannity.

It was Scott who originally mentioned the Ramaswamy-China link, noting how the entrepreneur had called his six rivals onstage ‘good people tonight’ after saying they were ‘bought and paid for’ at the first GOP debate last month in Milwaukee. 

‘I thought about that for a little while and said, “You know I can’t imagine how you could say that knowing that you were just in business with the Chinese Communist Party and the same people that funded Hunter Biden millions of dollars were partners of yours as well,”‘ Scott said from the Simi Valley, California debate stage. 

Ramaswamy argued ‘these are good people who are tainted by a broken system’ as several candidates, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, spoke over him. 

DeSantis chimed in arguing that Ramaswamy’s business in China was a well-trodden topic, adding, ‘let’s focus on holding Joe Biden accountable. 

Ramaswamy appeared to appreciate the assist, but the strike wasn’t over.

‘I agree with Ron DeSantis on China,’ Ramaswamy said. ‘When every other CEO expanded into the Chinese market you know what I did with my first company? We opened a subsidiary in China.’ 

'Well first let me say I'm glad Vivek pulled out of his business deal in 2018 in China,' former Vice President Mike Pence said with a sly smile. 'That must have been about the time he decided to start voting in presidential elections'

‘Well first let me say I’m glad Vivek pulled out of his business deal in 2018 in China,’ former Vice President Mike Pence said with a sly smile. ‘That must have been about the time he decided to start voting in presidential elections’ 

‘But you know what I did that was different than every other company, we got the hell out of there,’ Ramaswamy said. 

Haley then inserted: ‘Right before you ran for president!’ 

The candidates continued to yell over each other as Ramaswamy said it was earlier than that and when he launched his more recent company he ‘made a commitment we would never do business in China.’ 

‘I was interrupted by a lot of people,’ Ramaswamy complained. 

He tried to shut down Scott by saying, ‘from one admirer of Ronald Reagan to another.’ 

The trio of moderators finally moved on to Pence, asking him a question about Dreamers, but the former VP was ready for Ramaswamy too. 

‘Well first let me say I’m glad Vivek pulled out of his business deal in 2018 in China,’ Pence said with a sly smile. ‘That must have been about the time he decided to start voting in presidential elections.’
