A gloves-off Nikki Hailey calls Vivek Ramaswamy “just scum” and grabs centerstage  

Not that they were ever on, but Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley has completely taken off her gloves against her fellow Indian American presidential aspirant Vivek Ramaswamy, calling him “just scum.” 

During Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate, a third in the series, Haley and Ramaswamy had a head-on collision over the use of all things, TikTok. At one point in the debate, in the context of banning the popular mobile app TikTok because of its Chinese connection, Ramaswamy pointed out that Haley’s daughter was using it.
