Indian-origin Vivek Ramaswamy "would be very good" as the country's Vice-President, said former US President Donald Trump who is competing with other Republican candidates to run for the top post in 2024.

When asked whether the 45th US President would consider Ramaswamy, a 38-year-old biotech entrepreneur, as his deputy, Trump said, "I tell you, I think he'd be very good."

Vivek Ramaswamy earlier hinted that he may run on a joint ticket with former president Donald Trump as his running mate if he does not win the Republican nomination, according to a media report.

Meanwhile, not just Trump, Ramaswamy's calibre has also been endorsed by entrepreneur Elon Musk, who had praised the 38-year-old as 'very promising'.

"He is a very promising candidate," Musk wrote on X.

Born in 1985, Vivek Ramaswamy is an American pharmaceutical executive, hedge fund manager, lobbyist, and entrepreneur.

In the American political scenario, Ramaswamy is seen as a rising star in the campaign following a strong performance at last week's Republican debate.

He has been portraying himself as an outsider who is willing to develop former US President Donald Trump's "America First" agenda.

US voters will exercise their rights on November 5, 2024 to elect a new President.
