Vivek Caves on Plan to Cut Aid to Israel: 'We Would Never Cut Off Aid to Israel Until Israel Told Us They Were Ready'

GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy ran away from his proposal to cut aid to Israel by 2028 on Saturday, instead promising that he would provide endless US aid to Israel "until Israel told us they were ready for it" to be cut off.

"To be clear, we would never cut off aid to Israel unless Israel told us they were ready for it," Ramaswamy told an Israeli news outlet in an interview he shared to his own Twitter page.

"The US-Israel relationship will be stronger by the end of my first term than it has ever been in US history and than it ever will be under any of those other administrations if anybody else is elected," he said.

The idea Israel would ever ask the US to stop giving them billions of US taxpayer dollars for free is just comical. As I noted earlier this week, Israel regularly uses the billions we give them to buy US treasuries -- effectively lending us back our own aid money and charging us interest. The US Treasury's latest numbers showed Israel is currently holding $46 billion in US treasuries.

Ramaswamy also pledged that he wants to expand the Abraham Accords -- a scam worked out by the Israel lobby which consists of bribing Arab kings to normalize relations with Israel by offering them billions of US taxpayer dollars and high-tech weaponry which can be used to oppress their own populations -- with the "Abraham Accords 2.0."

He said his "2.0" plan would bring "Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar [and] Indonesia" into the pact (aka bribery scheme).

"The other area where I think the US-Israel partnership is critical is staying strong with respect to making sure Iran never ever ever becomes a nuclear power -- even has basic nuclear capabilities -- we will never allow that to happen on our watch," Ramaswamy said.

Fellow GOP presidential contender Nimrata "Nikki Haley" Randhawa called Ramaswamy out during the debate on Wednesday for wanting "to go and defund Israel."

"You want to cut the aid off!" Randhawa said. "Let me tell you, it's not that Israel needs America, America needs Israel!"

It only took Ramaswamy three days to not only abandon but completely reverse his "America First" policy.
