Trump Drops Democrat’s Name For His Running Mate

During a Newsmax interview on Thursday, Donald Trump was questioned about the potential that his choice for vice president would be Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. Trump is running for the Republican Party’s presidential candidacy; Kennedy Jr., on the other hand, is running for the Democratic Party’s nomination to take on President Joe Biden and has a sizable portion of the party’s support.

First brought up was the possibility of Kennedy Jr. running as an independent by host Rob Schmitt, to which Trump responded: “He [RFK Jr.] got great support in the party – in the Democrat party. He has got 20 percent [of Democrats supporting him]. I saw a poll today [were he got] 23 percent of the vote. That is a lot of vote and so I don’t know would he run as an independent? He can get a lot of votes I can tell you.”

The host continued, “I don’t think that can happen, but have you ever thought about that?” after revealing that some people have suggested a unity ticket between Trump and Kennedy. “No, but people have suggested it,” Trump retorted. “I read the same things you do. There are a lot of people suggesting it. No question about that,” 

Trump continued, “I have known him over the years. He’s a smart guy and well-intentioned. I really believe that he is really well-intentioned.” In spite of the fact that he denied having previously considered such a pairing, he was aware of its demand and holds Kennedy Junior in high regard.


Due to the fact that both political figures have faced censorship, there are many similarities between them. RFK Jr. recently appeared before Congress as a witness regarding some of the censorship he encountered. In his acceptance speech for the president, Kennedy recalled that “5 minutes into my speech, when I was talking about Paul Revere, YouTube de-platformed me.” He made it clear that he was “talking about [his] campaign and the conversations that we ought to be having with each other as Americans but I was shut down.”

Kennedy regarded the First Amendment and the right to free expression as the “the fertilizer, it’s the water, it is the sunlight for our democracy. We need to be talking to each other.”

Kennedy has advocated for the need to undermine the prevalent “surveillance state” and would support Trump in his fight against the deep state in that regard.
