Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey announced Sunday that he is endorsing Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for president.
Dorsey’s endorsement came via a tweet in which he shared a Fox News interview where RFK Jr. argues he would be the Democratic presidential nominee most capable of beating former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2024.
In the thread Dorsey called the Democratic National Committee (DNC) irrelevant, and said that he was both endorsing RFK Jr. as well as predicting that he will win the Democratic nomination.
Kennedy officially declared his candidacy to challenge incumbent Democratic President Joe Biden this April in Boston, and hit the campaign trail for the first time this week.
A controversial candidate due to his anti-vaccine stance, a Fox News poll taken at the end of April showed he had the support of almost 20 percent of Democratic primary voters, trailing President Biden by about 40 points.
The Team Kennedy Instagram account was given a 180-day ban on June 1, but RFK Jr.’s personal Instagram account was reinstated Monday after being banned in 2021 for violating the platform’s medical misinformation policy.
Kennedy is set to join Twitter CEO Elon Musk and tech entrepreneur David Sacks in a Twitter Space for an interview at 2 p.m. on Monday, just as Republican presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis did for his campaign announcement on May 24.
