Main Points:

  1. Visit to 9/11 Memorial: On Monday, Vivek Ramaswamy visited the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero in New York City. He attended the Fire Department of New York's pipe and drum tribute at Station 10 during his visit.
  2. Controversial Comments: Ramaswamy has faced criticism for comments he made in a recent interview with The Atlantic, where he implied that federal agents might have been on the planes that hit the Twin Towers during the 9/11 attacks. He stated, "I think it is legitimate to say how many police, how many federal agents, were on the planes that hit the Twin Towers." He mentioned that this should be a part of the comprehensive assessment of the 9/11 events.
  3. Response to Criticism: When questioned about his comments by CNN's Kaitlan Collins , Ramaswamy claimed he was taken out of context. However, The Atlantic released the full audio tape and transcript, showing that he was accurately quoted. Ramaswamy defended his statements during his visit to the memorial, emphasizing the importance of a government telling its people the truth.
  4. Reference to Declassified Documents: Ramaswamy referred to declassified documents from two years ago as the basis for his comments. He mentioned a hard fact from these documents but did not elaborate further during the visit.
  5. Criticism from Republican Rivals: Ramaswamy's comments have drawn criticism from other Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence and former U.S. Representative Will Hurd. Hurd remarked that Ramaswamy's comments were disrespectful to the lives lost on 9/11.
  6. Social Media Post: Ramaswamy marked his visit to the 9/11 Memorial with a post on the social media platform "X," where he emphasized unity among Americans and honored the bravest and finest individuals present at the memorial.
