Donald Trump Jr. Slams RFK Jr. As ‘Radical Democrat’ During Newsmax Appearance

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.
