Vivek Ramaswamy dropped out of race for Republican Party's 2024 presidential nomination

American Author Lauren Wright has claimed that Vivek Ramaswamy "has lined himself up for a post in the cabinet with Trump endorsement."

Ramaswamy dropped out of the race for the 2024 US Republican presidential nomination earlier in the week, shortly before former President Donald Trump won the vote in Iowa, taking over half of the overall votes.

Ramaswamy, the youthful entrepreneur who briefly threatened to disrupt the Republican primaries, appeared alongside Trump at various events since halting his own White House race.

In New Hampshire, Trump said: "He's going to be working with us for a long time" after some in the crowd chanted "VP, VP, VP."

American Author Lauren Wright said: "I don't know if Trump will win the national election.

"Ironically, he's probably the weakest candidate Republicans could put forward.

​"But of course, we have very close elections in our country, so he's got a good shot at it.

"If he does, I'm sure he will appreciate that steadfast support. If he does not, then certainly Vivek Ramaswami has done what past candidates have done.

"They use these presidential campaigns to build their name recognition, to get known a little bit.

"And so he will be in an even better position down the line if he decides to run again."

Nikki Haley took third place with 19 per cent, after polling just behind Trump. Ron DeSantis just edged in front of Haley with 21 per cent of the vote.

Ahead of the New Hampshire ballot, Trump is currently leading once again with 52 per cent of the vote.

In a push following the Iowa Caucus, Haley has jumped up two percentage points to 35 per cent.

DeSantis has fallen to third in the race with just six per cent.

Speaking after the Iowa result, Haley told supporters that Trump's victory in Iowa "made this Republican primary a two-person race".

Responding to the former UN Ambassador's claim, Wright told GB News: "That's the spin that I would advise any campaign manager, you want to put a positive spin on your results.

"I'm sure the upset her team would have really wanted is for second place, and that would have really solidified her spot as the Trump alternative."

Wright compared Haley's reaction to Bill Clinton, claiming she wants to be "right in the mix" by convincing voters "she can make a comeback".

She continued: "She's saying I made third, I'm coming back, and they'll try to carry that momentum into New Hampshire."
