Jack Dorsey Endorses Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for President

Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former CEO of Twitter, backed Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

On Sunday, the influential tech billionaire tweeted a Fox News YouTube video titled “Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Argues He Can Beat Trump and DeSantis in 2024” writes, “He can and will.”

When asked if he was approving or predicting, he replied“Both.”

Kennedy, a nephew of President John F. Kennedy and the son of his slain brother Robert F. Kennedy, is like Dorsey a strong supporter of Bitcoin, which he recently described as an “exercise of democracy”.

Last month, Kennedy delivered a well-received message opening speech at a Bitcoin conference in Miami. He called Bitcoin a “bulwark” against “government and corporate expansion and intrusion.”

“As president, I will ensure that your right to own and use Bitcoin is inviolable,” he added.

He is committed to defending the right of self-custody of Bitcoin and other digital assets. “You should be able to own your own private keys, the same way you own your car keys or you own your wallet… I don’t think the government has the right to demand access to your key bitcoin or any of your passwords. Saying otherwise to cede essential territory to the surveillance state.

Anti-vaccine activist, Kennedy frequently and controversially attacked Anthony Fauci, former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, over his handling of the pandemic, accusing him of orchestrating ‘fascism’ and writing a book on the subject.

When a Twitter user commented that there was “no chance the DNC [Democratic National Committee] allows him to be nominated,” Dorsey replied, “All the more reason. he later added that the DNC “seems more irrelevant by the day” and wrote “the end of an empire”, to which Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and current owner of Twitter replied with two fire emoji.

Earlier on Sunday, Musk tweeted that he will host Kennedy on the Twitter Spaces audio platform on Monday afternoon. Dorsey responded to this, writing, “Excellent.”

The event unfolded quickly, with Musk ask Kennedy Friday on Twitter, “Do you want to do a Spaces chat with me next week?” Kennedy replied in the affirmative and Dorsey intervened“That would be great.”

Twitter Spaces also played a big role in politics last month, when Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his candidacy for president there, although technical issues ruined the event.

On Friday night, Musk tweetedThe system is being upgraded and stress tested ahead of @RobertKennedyJr’s interview on Monday.

When a Twitter user comments that Kennedy’s shaky voice is “a problem”, Dorsey replied calling it a “super power”, saying it sets the candidate apart.
