Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy announced Tuesday that any prospective members of his hypothetical presidential administration must sign a pledge rejecting neoconservative foreign policy beliefs.
“STOP WORLD WAR III,” he posted on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

The link leads to a “No to Neocons” pledge, which it says prospective political appointees must sign and commit to if they want to be considered for roles in a Ramaswamy administration.
The pledge includes three statements. According to Ramaswamy, potential administration members must agree “Avoiding WW3 is a vital national objective,” “War is never a preference, only a necessity,” and “The sole duty of U.S. policymakers is to U.S. citizens.”
As Ukraine fends off an invasion from Russia and Israel is warring with Iran-backed terrorist group Hamas, Ramaswamy has been vocal in his opposition to additional emergency aid to the countries. He has suggested the U.S. needs to focus on issues domestically instead.
