Jack Dorsey, co-founder and ex-CEO of Twitter has endorsed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for president on the grounds that he is the most viable Democratic candidate against the likes of former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, both of whom are Republicans.
The anti-vaccination environmental lawyer and son of the deceased New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination in April, challenging incumbent President Joe Biden.
Jack Dorsey sparked controversy when he shared a video of Kennedy in conversation with Fox News’ Harris Faulkner. A video was uploaded with the text suggesting RFK Jr. contends he is capable of defeating the Republican front-runners in 2024.
Dorsey then wrote that Kennedy can and will.
In response to a user’s question about whether he was endorsing or merely predicting, Dorsey replied, “Both.”
Dorsey continued to defend his unexpected decision after a Twitter user mentioned that the Democrat party would not permit the controversial Kennedy to be on the ticket because of his anti-vaccine position.
Dorsey agreed but said the Democrat party becomes less relevant by the day.
In two recent polls on potential Democratic candidates in the 2024 election, Fox Business reported that Kennedy, 69, had polled at 16% and 20%, respectively.
Back in January 2021, a report showed that someone on the inside of the social media platform covertly filmed Then-CEO Jack Dorsey’s operational plan before the widespread censoring of pro-Trump followers.
Project Veritas published the video in which then-Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is shown urging to take further action toward President Trump and the people who support him on the social media platform. Dorsey stated that blocking Trump was just the start.
Dorsey explained that his focus was on the account @realDonaldTrump, but the situation will extend far beyond that account and would continue beyond the upcoming weeks, including his Presidential inauguration.
