Democratic candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has refused to stoop to the level of attacking former President Donald Trump, earning him the respect and admiration of millions of Americans who are tired of the negative politics of the left.
During a town hall hosted by News Nation, Kennedy proved his common sense and statesmanship by focusing on issues that unite us rather than divide us. When asked about his thoughts on Trump, Kennedy took a high road and refused to engage in mudslinging. “Here’s what I’m not going to do in this race. I’m not going to attack other people personally. What I’m trying to do in this race is bringing people together,” Kennedy said.
As a result of his principled stance, Trump praised Kennedy as a “common-sense guy” and “a very smart guy” during an appearance on the Howie Carr Show. Trump is known to have a history of supporting candidates who share his vision for America..
Kennedy returned the favor by thanking Trump for his kind words and expressing his pride in being liked by the former President. “I’m proud that President Trump likes me,” Kennedy said.
Despite their political differences, Kennedy also expressed his respect for current President Joe Biden. “I like President Biden even though I disagree with him on a number of policy fronts,” Kennedy said.
However, Kennedy didn’t stop there. He also called for more unity in the country and urged Americans to stop hating on each other. “We’ve got to stop hating on each other,” he said.
Kennedy’s message of unity, common sense, and civility has resonated with a wide range of Americans who are tired of the divisive politics of the left. He has polled between 10 and 20 percent and garnered support from a number of disgruntled Democrats, including former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Alicia Silverstone.
Despite his growing popularity, the Democratic National Committee has refused to schedule a debate between Biden, Kennedy, and other candidates, including Marianne Williamson and Cornel West. Perhaps they are afraid of what Kennedy might say and how his message might resonate with the American people.
Kennedy has also been floated as a potential vice-presidential option if former President Trump wins the GOP nomination. Former Trump White House advisor and War Room host Steve Bannon has called on Trump and Kennedy to join together for a “unity ticket” in 2024. “Bobby Kennedy would be an excellent choice for Trump to consider,” Bannon said during a War Room episode this past April.
While Kennedy has thrown cold water on the idea as of this point in time, his message of unity and common sense has struck a chord with millions of Americans who are looking for leaders who can put the needs of the country ahead of their own interests. Who knows what the future holds, but one thing is certain: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a rising star in American politics and a patriot who deserves respect and a fair chance at the presidency.
