RFK Jr. Says Biden Is A Bigger Threat To Democracy Than Trump

Despite the claims on the left, Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. believes that former President Donald Trump is less of a threat to democracy than President Joe Biden.

During an interview on CNN’s “OutFront” on Monday night, Kennedy made the “argument that President Biden is a much worse threat to democracy.”

Referring to Biden’s weaponization of federal agencies, Kennedy stated, “And the reason for that is President Biden is the first candidate in history, the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech, so to censor his opponent. I can say that because I just won a case in the federal Court of Appeals and now before the Supreme Court that shows that he started censoring not just me — 37 hours after he took the oath of office, he was censoring me.”

“No president in the country has ever done that. The greatest threat to democracy is not somebody who questions election returns, but a president of the United States who uses the power of his office to force the 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 CISA, to NIH to censor his political critics,” he added.

Going further to emphasize his point, Kennedy placed Biden as the first president in the U.S. history to use “his power over the Secret Service to deny Secret Service protection to one of his political opponents for political reasons.”

Host Erin Burnett then asked, “So, just to be clear, you’re saying you could make an argument that President Biden is a worse threat to democracy than Donald Trump?”

In response, he said, “Absolutely. Who else has ever tried to — who else has ever tried to — what president in history has ever tried to censor political opponents? What president has weaponized the federal agency?”

Several Democrats, including Biden himself, have claimed that Trump is a threat to democracy. During his State of the Union address last month, the president took a swipe at his political rival, as he accused him of trying to “bury the truth of January 6th.”

“We must be honest: … Democracy must be defended,” he stated.
