Vivek Ramaswamy Says Voting For Trump Is A ‘Trap’ During Iowa Town Hall

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA—Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy warned Iowa voters Thursday against falling for the “trap” of making Donald Trump the GOP nominee.

Ramaswamy is currently polling at 5.9% in Iowa behind the former president, who is at 51.3% in the key state, according to RealClear Politics. The business mogul, who has regularly come out in defense of Trump, asked voters to do a “counterintuitive thing” and cast their vote for him instead of the former president to avoid falling for a”trap” during a campaign stop in Council Bluffs.

“So I’m asking you to do, even though many of you would have thought of supporting Trump on Jan. 15, I’m asking you do a counterintuitive thing because the game they’re pulling on us is counterintuitive,” Ramaswamy said. “They’re selling you the rope today that they will use to hang us tomorrow. Do not fall for their trap. You have right here an America First candidate, who will take that movement further with fresh legs. And this time at least, they’re not going to stop me and I understand the law of the Constitution.”
