Republican Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy comes into a controversy after criticism for comments on the 9/11 attacks.
He comes into the controversy of September 11 and the January 6 Capitol attack on Monday. In this attack, a total of 2,977 people were killed.
Ramaswamy, who got a high rank in GOP, said confidently that the Atlantic had misquoted him, as he was talking about the January 2021 attack on the capitol, not about the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.
In his statement, he said, “I was in U.S. history class in 11th grade on 9/11. We didn’t just learn history; we watched it unfold as we watched the aftermath of the catastrophe. I remember to this day watching the heroism of the firefighters, police officers, and first responders who ran not from Ground Zero but toward it to help their fellow Americans in need. We honor those who lost their lives as well as their families.”

He also said to the Atlantic, “I think it is legitimate to say, how many police, how many federal agents were on the planes that hit the Twin Towers? Like, I think we want- maybe the answer is zero, probably is zero for all I know, right? I have no reason to think it was anything other than zero. But if we are doing a comprehensive assessment of what happened on 9/11, we have a 9/11 commission, absolutely that should be an answer the public knows the answer to.”

He said the government lied about the 9/11 attack in his comment. He was blamed for misquoting his comment. He also said, “Al-Qaeda has planned and successfully executed the attack, but we have never fully addressed who knew what in the Saudi government about it. We *can* handle the TRUTH,” many people lost their lives in that attack.
Former President Mike Pence, the other contender for the Presidential nomination, said, “I think comments like that, conspiracy theories like that, dishonor the service and sacrifice of our armed forces who fought against our enemies determined to kill us.”
On Monday, Ramaswamy was welcomed by the people of New York and shook hands with Firefighters, survivors, families, and supporters. When the ceremony was completed, a reporter asked him about his past statement about the 9/11 attack, but he said, “This is not the right time to talk about that comment, but I remain stuck to that comment.” Vivek Ramaswamy attended the anniversary and highlighted the importance of the president that “People Can Trust.”
