(FixThisNation.com) – Ramaswamy, a presidential candidate from the GOP, strongly criticized former President Obama’s recent comments regarding minority candidates within the Republican Party. He argued that these remarks align with a “toxic” ideology propagated by liberals.

During a podcast interview with David Axelrod, Obama expressed his views on the Republican party and its minority members. Specifically, he mentioned that those from racial minority backgrounds tend to propagate the notion that everything in the country is “great” and that anyone can achieve success. These remarks were made in response to a question about Senator Tim Scott’s messaging in his 2024 presidential campaign.

Obama further criticized Scott’s optimistic stance, asserting that presidential candidates should have a comprehensive plan to address “generational poverty” and the enduring impact of centuries of racism in society. In contrast, Ramaswamy, in his interview with Fox News, rebuked Obama’s perspective and accused liberals of promoting the idea that minorities are not permitted to deny the existence of systemic racism. He characterized this as a “toxic philosophy” endorsed by the left, claiming that individuals who are Black or brown are forbidden from expressing their skepticism about systemic racism.

Ramaswamy firmly rejected this premise and emphasized the importance of open discussions on the topic, highlighting that candidates like himself, Scott, and Nikki Haley should be able to freely voice their opinions. He further argued that Obama’s remarks set a negative example for American society as a whole.
