WASHINGTON, DC: To win support of Libertarian voters, independent presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr issued some of his most scathing comments against former President Donald Trump on Friday, May 24, according to the New York Post.

Notably, even while Trump blasted RFK Jr as a 'radical' and a 'Democrat plant' who would secure Biden's reelection on November 5 by stealing votes from the GOP standard-bearer, RFK Jr had generally refrained from openly attacking Trump, reserving his most caustic remarks for President Biden.

RFK Jr goes all out against Donald Trump to win Libertarian support

However, when RFK Jr addressed delegates at the Washington Hilton for the Libertarian Party's national convention, he was ruthless.

Accusing the 45th president of doing nothing during the Covid-19 pandemic to protect freedoms of speech, assembly and worship, RFK Jr said, "President Trump allowed his health regulators to mandate science-free social distancing."

Kennedy argued that the former president and his administration had violated people’s First Amendment rights when they instituted health guidelines to combat the pandemic.


RFK Jr also attacked Trump for not acting during his administration to support former National Security Agency contractor and anti-surveillance whistleblower Edward Snowden and Julian Assange, the creator of WikiLeaks, whom Kennedy called a 'hero'.

Triggering shouts of “Free Assange!” from the audience, he said, "On my first day in office, I’m going to pardon Edward Snowden, and I’m going to drop charges, all charges for Julian Assange."


Notably, during his speech to the delegates on Saturday, May 25 night, Trump is anticipated to be interrupted by demonstrators demanding that the former president engage in a one-on-one discussion with RFK Jr.

Moreover, two head-to-head debates between Biden and Trump have been scheduled for June 27 and September 10. No third-party candidates will be permitted to participate under the rules established by the incumbent's campaign.

In early May, Trump said he would take on Kennedy, comparing him to a "sharper" and "more intelligent" version of Biden. RFK Jr made fun of Trump during his speech, stating that he hoped the former president would have the "courage" to address the topics.

Furthermore, before the independent hit the platform at the convention, Trump's team launched their attack on Kennedy. They ordered a mobile billboard to be driven around the Hilton that displayed attack advertisements which labeled Kennedy a "radical". The advertisements also highlighted his left-wing policy recommendations.

Several social media users grilled RFK Jr as he made scathing remarks against former President Donald Trump.

A user wrote on X, "Kennedy needs to go sit down somewhere he has no chance of being president" while one added, "Desperate...just like the Democrats...and just like the Democrats...he doesn't stand a chance against Trump."



A person also wrote, "At the end of the day he’s a big taxing, big spending, big government, over-regulating Democrat. We don’t need Democrats anymore. They’re the problem, not the solution" whereas one mentioned, "RFK is for larger government. That’s a deal break for me."



A user added, "RFK Jr You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you because it makes no sense at all."
