Robert F. Kennedy Jr has said that President Donald Trump ‘discredited the American experiment’ in a new interview.

‘I think, in many ways, he’s discredited the American experiment with self-governance,’ added Kennedy Jr, an anti-vaccination activist who is the nephew of former president John F. Kennedy and son of his attorney general, Robert F. Kennedy.

Kennedy Jr went on to lament that, in his opinion, Trump has diminished the reputation of America in the minds of foreign citizens elsewhere.

‘If you go to China today and ask them, do you want a democracy like America has? You ask anybody in the world this, they will say no because why would we want a form of government that can produce leadership of a person who doesn’t read books, who’s not thoughtful about issues, who’s bullying, who … employs all the dark alchemies of demagoguery?’ he said. 

‘And it’s, you know, it’s destroying so much about the things about America that I admire and that make us an influence, that make us an exemplary nation,’ he continued. 

Kennedy Jr went on to boast that his uncle had been admired all around the world, predicting that Trump would never receive the same adulation.
