RFK Jr. Accuses Biden and Trump of Collusion, Exclusion from Debates

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has accused President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump of colluding to exclude him from the upcoming presidential debates. Kennedy’s claims come after Biden and Trump confirmed their participation in two debates, leaving out Kennedy from the lineup.

Kennedy took to social media, notably on his X (formerly Twitter) account, to voice his accusations. “Presidents Trump and Biden are colluding to lock America into a head-to-head matchup that 70% say they do not want,” Kennedy tweeted. “They are trying to exclude me from their debate because they are afraid I would win. Keeping viable candidates off the debate stage undermines democracy.”

The debates, scheduled to be hosted by CNN and ABC, have drawn criticism for their exclusion of Kennedy, who has been gaining traction in recent polls. In addition, Kennedy’s assertion of collusion reflects broader concerns about the democratic process and the role of third-party candidates in the electoral system. Critics argue that excluding Kennedy from the debates undermines the principles of fairness and inclusivity.

The exclusion of Kennedy is particularly significant given his rising popularity among certain demographics. Recent polls have shown Kennedy polling at around 10 percent of registered voters across battleground states, sapping support from both Biden and Trump. Kennedy’s campaign has been invigorated by young voters and social media, with his message resonating strongly among these groups.

Kennedy’s accusations against both Biden and Trump have drawn attention to the challenges faced by independent and third-party candidates in the electoral process. Kennedy’s campaign has vowed to continue its fight for inclusion in the debates, emphasizing the importance of giving voters a choice beyond the traditional two-party system. His adept use of social media has helped overcome hurdles posed by the political establishment, along with corporate, and legacy media, allowing his message to resonate with a growing number of voters. As his campaign continues to push for inclusion in the debates, Kennedy’s candidacy symbolizes a larger movement seeking to reshape the political landscape and provide voters with a wider range of choices.
