Robert F Kennedy Jr, independent candidate running for president, on Wednesday claimed that Donald Trump and President Joe Biden are 'colluding' to exclude him from debates. This comes as the Republican and Democrat agreed to square off in a Georgia debate hosted by CNN on June 27 and another hosted by ABC News on September 10.
RFK Jr suggested that he was not invited for the presidential debates and denying him access is a threat to democracy in a country that values free speech. “Presidents Trump and Biden are colluding to lock America into a head-to-head match-up that 70% say they do not want,” he wrote on X, platform formerly known as Twitter.
The independent candidate further added: "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. Forty-three percent of Americans identify as independents. If Americans are ever going to escape the hammerlock of the two-party system, now is the time to do it. These are the two most unpopular candidates in living memory."
CNN, in its announcement, said that the prerequisite will be for candidates to 'receive at least 15% in four separate national polls of registered or likely voters that meet CNN’s standards for reporting'. RFK Jr is currently averaging 10.8%, as per the latest RealClearPolitics aggregate of polling.
The Biden-Harris campaign Chair Jen O’Malley Dillon wrote a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, saying that the “squandering debate time on candidates with no prospect of becoming president.”
