As Democrats await President Biden’s potential 2024 campaign announcement, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has decided to throw his hat in the presidential ring.
During an appearance on “Cavuto Live,” host Neil Cavuto noted that many Democrats are not “too keen” on his decision to challenge the President Biden, but Kennedy assured voters that he is in a “much better position” to go up against the anticipated Republican nominee, Donald Trump.
“Right now, polls show President Biden losing to Donald Trump, who is the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party” Kennedy argued, Saturday.
“Ultimately, I think I’m in a much better position to beat Donald Trump than Joe Biden is. And I also just disagree with him on basic issues, like my father did with Lyndon Johnson on censorship. I don’t think the White House should be censoring its political critics.”
The Democratic challenger continued, touting that if Americans have an “appetite” for truth, he will be in the “White House in 2025.”
“Like My dad ran on principle, he did not believe that he could win. And his objective was to tell the truth to the American people, and that’s what I’m going to do. And if there’s an appetite for that, I’ll be in the White House in 2025,” he said.
Some critics say that voters are looking for a fresh candidate in 2024, taking into account the physical risks associated with an older nominee. Kennedy Jr. weighed in, arguing that there are “things that [he’s] much more frightened of.”
