Robert F Kennedy said in March that his wife had been the biggest hindrance in his presidential run, but he said she had agreed. He is the co-founder of the Environmental Law firm and was praised for running his campaign on the issue of pure water, which also includes cleaning the Hudson River in New York. These points are valid, but he has faced many controversies for acting against vaccines in recent years, and it has proved a counterblast. His family was against him, and his sister Kerry Kennedy called him dangerous for being anti-Vaccine.
Other siblings of Kennedy Jr. condemned his views on the COVID-vaccine and said it could have deadly outcomes. Mr. Kennedy was removed from Facebook and Instagram for violating company policies in the offense of sharing falsified stuff about vaccines and propagating medical misinformation.
More Participants for the Presidential Run
In the last month, Kennedy said he had considered running for the Presidency race. He said if he participated, his motto would be eliminating the corrupt merger between the state and the corporate administration. Kennedy added that the evil coalition had been responsible for demolishing the country’s economy and the exhaustion of the middle class. Moreover, he said that the lands and water had been polluted, children had been poisoned, and the crooked merger had ruined their values.
Both the Republican and the Democratic parties hold their contests to find the nominee for the president of the White House. Mr. Biden has also hinted that he would run for re-election but has yet to announce his candidacy. He was expected to launch his presidential campaign in early April, but rumors claim Biden has rescheduled it. It is also reported that he may announce it in the early summer.
Last month Marianne Williamson, another Democrat, declared to run for the White House. Donald Trump has become the first candidate from the Republicans who informs his candidacy for the Presidential elections. Nikki Haley, John Bolton, Chris Christe, and Steve Laffey have also joined from the Republican side. Some of the candidates from the Democrats are Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Haris, Stacey Abrams, and Marianne Williamson.
