Vivek Ramaswamy, GOP presidential candidate and skeptic of the government’s account of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, said on Wednesday that the government’s version of events is not accurate.

Alex Stein of BlazeTV asked Ramaswamy if 9/11 was an inside job.

Ramaswamy responded, “I don’t think the government has told the truth.” “Again I’m driven to evidence and data. I’ve seen over the last few years that we have been skeptical of what government tells us.”

“I don’t have any evidence, but do you believe what the government has told us about 9/11? No way. Is it true that I believe the 9/11 Commission?” He added.

“Yeah, the 9/11 Commission lied,” Stein agreed.

Ramaswamy repeated his remarks on X (formerly Twitter).

Ramaswamy clarified later that he does not believe that the U.S. played a role in 9/11. Ramaswamy agreed that Al-Qaeda had been the primary architect.

“Do I believe our government has been completely forthright about 9/11? No. Al-Qaeda clearly planned and executed the attacks, but we have never fully addressed who knew what in the Saudi government about it. We *can* handle the TRUTH,” the GOP presidential candidate tweeted.

Ramaswamy later posted another tweet, saying, “The reason people don’t trust the government is that the government doesn’t trust the people. It’s actually that simple.”

Ramaswamy later explained to Shelby Talcott his 9/11 remarks.

“I think there have long been unanswered questions about who knew about it in the Saudi government. That’s what I was getting at,” Ramaswamy said, telling Talcott that he doesn’t actually believe 9/11 was an “inside job.”

Prior to speaking about 9/11, Ramaswamy was asked his thoughts on whether the 1969 Apollo moon landing was fake or legitimate.

“I have no evidence to suggest it was fake,” Ramaswamy said of the moon landing. “So I’m going to assume it was real.”

Ramaswamy mocked Stein subtly to explain his remarks. He said: “Some guy, who is a comic, was spouting questions about the Moon Landing not being real prior to that.”

Ramaswamy’s popularity has increased in recent polls, specifically in a Morning Consult survey, where he is ranked third with 9 percent of the vote, behind Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Donald Trump.

Trump faces multiple federal indictments, but Ramaswamy has pledged to pardon him if he is elected president.
