RFK Jr. says Biden poses ‘much worse’ threat to democracy than Trump

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said Monday that he believed President Biden poses a greater threat to democracy than former President Trump.

Kennedy Jr. said during an appearance on CNN’s “OutFront” that Biden is a “much worse” threat to democracy than Trump because the current president has “weaponized” federal agencies to censor his political opponents.

“I can make the argument that President Biden is much worse,” Kennedy Jr. said. “And the reason is that President Biden is the first candidate in history, the first president in history to have used the federal agencies to censor political speech or censor one’s opponent.”

“The greatest threat to democracy is not someone who questions the election results, but a president of the United States who will use the power of his office to force social media companies Facebook, Instagram, Twitter to open a portal and give access to that portal to the FBI, to the CIA, to the IRS, to the NIH, to censor his political criticism,” he added.

Kennedy Jr. first challenged Biden for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination before launching a bid for the White House as an independent in October to take on Biden and Trump in the 2024 election.

The comments come after Biden repeatedly asserted that Trump posed a threat to democracy because of his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol, for which the former president was federally indicted. Trump, who has falsely alleged for the past three and a half years that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him due to voter fraud, said in December that Biden was the “real threat.”

CNN host Erin Burnett pressed Trump’s alleged role in trying to overturn the 2020 election.
