On Thursday, Donald Trump Jr., the son of former President Donald Trump, attacked Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an independent presidential candidate, labeling him a radical Democrat and “no conservative.”
When asked about Kennedy during an appearance on The Balance with Eric Bolling of Newsmax, Trump responded as follows:
“I saw it sort of started like nine months ago. He was appearing in my social feeds from people I don’t follow, but they were forced feeding it down there because I think they were trying to create, you know, a cudgel to Trump, someone else, but the reality is RFK is a radical liberal who happens to be anti-vax.” Trump Jr. said.
“That may be the one policy where he leans a little bit right, but he was for open borders for his entire life. He’s against farmers, he was a radical environmentalist, he was super anti-gun, you know? He says he’s changed his mind. He’s changed his mind on everything that he did for decades?” he continued.
“Everything magically six months ago? I don’t believe that. So you know, he’s a phenomenal alternative to Joe Biden as a Democrat, but he is a radical Democrat.” he added.
A theme of Trump Jr.’s comments seemed to be that he believed that RFK Jr. was part of a concerted effort to prevent his father from being re-elected in the fall.
“But you know, it’s all part of the machine to try to stop Trump as far as I’m concerned, and again, yeah, I think he’s certainly a better viable option, you know, than Joe Biden for the Democrats, but he is no conservative. Let’s not kid ourselves.” he concluded later in the conversation.
