Elon Musk weighed in on the GOP presidential primary.

After initially appearing to support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis it looks like Musk had a change of heart.

Elon Musk praised one GOP presidential candidate that no one saw coming.

As American Patriot Daily reports:

Ramaswamy caught the attention of Elon Musk following a 45-minute interview with Tucker Carlson where Carlson gushed over Ramaswamy’s common sense agenda on foreign policy, opposing wokeism in schools, and inspiring an American renewal.

Musk declared “he is a very promising candidate” in response to the interview.

In the interview Ramaswamy explained that through a combination of lies and corruption the liberal ruling elites are pushing the nation towards a “1776 moment.”

“There’s something going on. We’re like in the 1775, spring of 1776 moment in this country,” Ramaswamy declared. “I think that people are hungry,” Ramaswamy told Carlson.

Ramaswamy added that polls showing just 13 percent of Americans thinking the country is going in the right direction provide an opportunity to unite the country around the nation’s original founding ideals.

“Now, the form I want to see it play out in is reviving those shared ideals that unite us. That set the nation into motion in 1776 that I think are innate to our nature as human beings, as Americans. I think there’s a hunger for a revival of those ideals,” Ramaswamy added.

Ramaswamy told Carlson that this anger bubbled up after people realized that their leaders routinely lie to them for fear that telling the truth would expose how the political class gave a raw deal to the working people of America.

“I think that there’s a bipartisan consensus in this country right now. That we the people, we can’t handle the truth,” Ramaswamy continued.

Ramaswamy then cited the lies the government has told about the Biden family’s involvement in Ukraine, the weaponization of the government against Donald Trump, the origins of COVID, and the FBI hiding the manifesto from a transgender shooter who murdered six innocents at a Christian school located in Nashville.

“My basic view in this campaign is we can handle the truth,” Ramaswamy concluded.

Ramaswamy also based his campaign on what he called the ten essential truths every leader must tell.

They are:

  1. God is real.
  2. There are two genders.
  3. Human flourishing requires fossil fuels.
  4. Reverse racism is racism.
  5. An open border is no border.
  6. Parents determine the education of their children.
  7. The nuclear family is the greatest form of governance known to mankind.
  8. Capitalism lifts people up from poverty.
  9. There are three branches of the U.S. government, not four.
  10. The U.S. Constitution is the strongest guarantor of freedoms in history.

Polls show this message is picking up steam.

A recent Echelon Insights survey found Ramaswamy moving into second place behind Donald Trump and passing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

But can Ramaswamy continue his momentum?

Past GOP presidential campaigns are littered with the flavor of the month like Scott Walker, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, and the late Herman Cain.
