Trump’s Absent Triumph and Vivek’s Sharp Jabs Dominate Third GOP Debate

'Nothing changed. Trump won...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Republican candidates for presidential clashed in the third GOP debate, sparking a whirlwind of intense Twitter buzz. 

Vivek Ramaswamy, a standout figure of the night, garnered attention with scathing remarks that reverberated across Twitter. Notably, despite the absence of former President Donald Trump, who continues to opt out of the debates, he was declared the de facto winner by some commentators.

Ramaswamy’s fervent address against RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel went quickly viral, particularly as the GOP grappled with its embarrassing shortcomings in the Nov. 7 elections in Virginia, Kentucky and New Jersey.

“We’ve become a party of losers… since Ronna McDaniel took over as chairwoman of the RNC in 2017 we have lost 2018, 2020, 2022, no red wave, that never came,” he said before demanding McDaniel’s immediate resignation, echoing sentiments expressed by several influential Republicans.

The spotlight then turned to former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, as Ramaswamy boldly questioned the crowd, “Do you want a leader from a different generation, who’s going to put this country first or do you want Dick Cheney in three-inch heels.” 

Haley’s retort fell flat, attempting to correct Ramaswamy by claiming she wears “5-inch heels” as “ammunition.”

The confrontational atmosphere persisted as Ramaswamy accused Haley of hypocrisy, highlighting her alleged criticism of TikTok while allowing her daughter to use the app.

Haley swiftly defended herself, spewing a slur at Ramaswamy. “Leave my daughter out of your voice … You’re just scum.”

Meanwhile, Trump’s presence loomed large over the event, with some pundits on Twitter declaring him as the winner of the night. 

Brigitte Gabriel, author and commentator, proclaimed on Twitter, “President Trump is the winner of tonight’s debate,” while podcast host Megyn Kelly reinforced the sentiment, asserting, “Nothing changed. Trump won.”

While the debate unfolded, Trump held a rally in Florida, attracting the endorsement of Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders 

Even the traditionally left-leaning New York Times acknowledged Trump’s dominance in the polls and the GOP.

“But in the end, it was unclear how the five candidates onstage could catch Mr. Trump if they would not directly answer the question that started and ended the debate: Why should Republican voters choose them over Mr. Trump?” the Times remarked.
