Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said during an interview this week that he believes that President Joe Biden is a greater threat to democracy than former President Donald Trump.

Kennedy made the remarks during a Monday night interview on CNN’s “OutFront” with host Erin Burnett.

“I can make the argument that President Biden is a much worse threat to democracy,” Kennedy said. “And the reason for that is President Biden is the first candidate in history, the first president in history that has used the federal agencies to censor political speech, so to censor his opponent. I can say that because I just won a case in the federal Court of Appeals and now before the Supreme Court that shows that he started censoring not just me — 37 hours after he took the oath of office, he was censoring me.”

“No president in the country has ever done that,” he continued. “The greatest threat to democracy is not somebody who questions election returns, but a president of the United States who uses the power of his office to force the social media companies, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter to open a portal and give access to that portal to the FBI, to the CIA, to the IRS, to CISA, to NIH to censor his political critics.”

“President Biden, the first president in history, used his power over the Secret Service to deny Secret Service protection to one of his political opponents for political reasons. He’s weaponizing the federal agencies,” he added. “Those are really critical threats to democracy.”

A few moments later, Burnett asked Kennedy: “So, just to be clear, you’re saying you could make an argument that President Biden is a worse threat to democracy than Donald Trump?”

“Absolutely,” Kennedy responded. “Who else has ever tried to — who else has ever tried to — what president in history has ever tried to censor political opponents? What president has weaponized the federal agency?”
