During an interview on CNN, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late-Robert Francis “Bobby” Kennedy who was assassinated in 1968, said Donald Trump “could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to,” and could easily be “the next Teddy Roosevelt.”
In the discussion with CNN Tonight host Don Lemon on Dec. 14, Lemon noted that Microsoft founder Bill Gates had said Trump could be another JFK and asked Robert Kennedy Jr. if he thought a comparison could be made between the Kennedys and the Trumps.
Kennedy said, “Well, I think Donald Trump can be, you know, any kind of president he wants. He’s actually — he has this extraordinary opportunity because he’s coming into office less burdened by obligation than probably any president in our history with the possible exception of Andrew Jackson.”
“And you know, both of them, Jackson and Trump came in, they were — people were sickened, they were outraged when Jackson came in and they thought it was the end of the world and he became a — unless you were an American-Indian, he became a very good president in defending the country against corporate power and really democratizing America in many ways,” said Kennedy.
