Donald Trump Jr’s Unusual Accusation: Labeling a Presidential Candidate as a ‘Democratic Infiltrator’ with Potential to Impact His Father’s Campaign
Donald Trump Jr. Unleashes Another Fiery Critique, This Time Focusing on a Presidential Contender
In a recent outburst, Donald Trump Jr. directed his attention towards a presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. After previously making eyebrow-raising comments about Hillary Clinton, Donald Jr. now turns his scrutiny to one of his father’s former rivals, Kennedy.
During a gathering with Trump campaign volunteers, Donald Jr. expressed suspicions about Kennedy’s true affiliations within the political arena. “It consistently seemed like he was a Democratic operative strategically positioned to undermine the Trump campaign,” asserted the author of “Liberal Privilege.” He continued, “It’s hard to believe he’d be in the race if the Democrats didn’t have a vested interest.”
Earlier in 2023, Kennedy had declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race as a Democrat, but later transitioned to a third-party nominee on October 9, as reported by CNN Politics. The reason behind Donald Jr.’s skepticism, according to OK, lies in the alignment of some of Kennedy’s principles with those held by Trump supporters. These shared views encompass the desire to abolish the two-party system and concerns regarding COVID-19 vaccinations.
Although Kennedy may not have been a Republican nominee, the concern expressed by Donald Jr. revolves around the potential impact of Kennedy as a “plant” who could divert voters away from supporting Trump and instead garner their votes for Kennedy.
Interestingly, Donald Jr. is not the sole voice raising concerns about Kennedy’s entry into the third-party arena. According to the same OK article, Ron DeSantis, in an event in New Hampshire, commented, “With RFK Jr. as a third-party candidate, you now have an additional factor to consider. RFK Jr. could attract voters who are against lockdowns and skeptical of Dr. Fauci, potentially hurting Trump’s chances.”
