Ramaswamy outlines differences between his campaign and Trump

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy shared some differences between his campaign and that of former President Donald Trump.

Ramaswamy noted the distinctions during a Friday interview with Fox News' "America Reports."

No state left behind

"We're leaving no state left behind, no city left behind, no American left behind, already building a multiethnic, working-class coalition," Ramaswamy said.

"The main difference is I will be able to unite this country by leading the next generation of Americans to a vision of what it means to be an American, revive national pride in that next generation where it is lacking," he later added.

The Trump question

"I do draw a distinction, George, between bad behavior and illegal behavior," Ramaswamy said during the interview with anchor George Stephanopoulos. "And once we start conflating those two things, I think we're in a long, downward slide as a country," Ramaswamy also noted in a separate Sunday interview, indicating his plans to pardon Trump if elected.

"I'm in this race because I believe I can lead us forward and reunite this country. But if it's not me as the nominee, I still expect that Donald Trump or whoever the Republican nominee will be better than the alternative," Ramaswamy said.

Standing out, but not enough

The latest Wall Street Journal poll shows Trump towering over GOP contenders and even tied with Biden in the general election.

Gov. Ron DeSantis currently ranks at 13%, with Nick Haley at 8% and Ramaswamy at 5%.

Other polls have noted Ramaswamy as high as second place to Trump, with his breakout status garnering positive words from Trump in recent interviews.

Some rumors have even speculated Ramaswamy as a potential vice presidential running mate with Trump, though it will likely be several months before any announcement about a running mate is made.

The contrasts were a positive move by Ramaswamy but is unlikely enough to propel the entrepreneur into first place in the crowded GOP field currently dominated by the former president.
