Riz Khan Sits Down for Interview With Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya English’s Riz Khan, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. discusses his unique political stance, campaign strategies, and perspectives on various critical issues facing the United States and the world.

Running as an independent, Kennedy brings a distinct approach to the 2024 US presidential election, emphasizing the need for an alternative to the traditional two-party candidates, who he claims are the most unpopular in American history.

“You know, there are 60 percent or 61 percent of the American public in the most recent poll who do not want President Biden or President Trump as president,” Kennedy tells Al Arabiya English. “These are the two most unpopular candidates ever to run in America. The entire span of American history since polls started to run as the candidate for a major political party, both of them.”

The interview touches on Kennedy’s controversial views on various issues, including immigration, foreign policy, and the Israel-Palestine conflict. He advocates for controlled immigration, arguing against the current policy he describes as chaotic and managed by drug cartels.

Kennedy does not shy away from discussing his personal battles, including overcoming drug addiction, which he believes adds to his relatability and positions him as a candidate focused on healing and recovery.

“I talk about it openly. I think it’s important for people to hear about that. I think it’s important for people to hear stories of recovery and my impression is that there’s so many Americans now being touched by addiction,” he says.
