Siblings of Robert F Kennedy Jr have denounced his candidacy of Robert for the U S Presidency.

In a statement circulated through site X, they said despite his sharing the same name as ‘our father, he did not share the same values, vision or judgement.’ They said his announcing the candidature was ‘dangerous for the country’

‘The decision of our brother Bobby to run as a third party candidate against Joe Biden is dangerous to our country,’ the statement issued by Rory, Kerry, Hon Joseph P. and Kathleeen said.

Robert F Kennedy Jr – son of former US senator Robert F Kennedy and the nephew of president John F. Kennedy – has announced his independent candidacy for President of the United States to be held in November 2023.

Prior to this, he had announced his run for Democratic primary to defeat President Joe Biden.
