Vivek Ramaswamy, the “CEO of Anti-Woke Inc.,” is running as a Republican for president of the United States in 2024.

The millionaire investor and author announced the official start of his campaign during an appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Ramaswamy’s announcement follows weeks of rumors and reporting that he was considering a 2024 bid.

“We are in the middle of this national identity crisis, Tucker, where we have celebrated our diversity and our differences for so long that we’ve forgotten all of the ways that we are really just the same as Americans, bound by a common set of ideals that set this nation into motion 250 years ago, and that’s why I am proud to say tonight I am running for United States president,” Ramaswamy said.

At the same time of his announcement on Carlson’s show, Ramaswamy, 37, released his 2024 campaign website, as well as his first campaign ad on social media.

“We’re in the midst of a national identity crisis. Faith, patriotism & family are disappearing. We embrace one secular religion after another — from wokeism to climatism — to satisfy our deeper need for meaning. Yet we cannot even answer what it means to be an American,” Ramaswamy said on Twitter.

“The GOP can fill that void. E pluribus unum: from many, one. That is the dream that won the American Revolution; that reunited us after the Civil War, that won us two World Wars & the Cold War. That is the dream that still gives hope to the world. That is American exceptionalism,” he said.

Ramaswamy is a political newcomer and will likely face a crowded field in the GOP primary in 2024. As of his announcement, however, just two others have declared their candidacy as Republicans in 2024: former President Donald Trump and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

If he won the White House in 2024, Ramaswamy’s first act would be to repeal Executive Order 11246, he told The New York Times. That order “requires affirmative action and prohibits federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin,” according to the Department of Labor.
