Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said he would not accept the vice presidential spot on former President Donald Trump’s 2024 ticket, saying he’s already been approached by Trump’s team.
“I would not take that job,” Kennedy, 70, said in a recent interview with NewsNation. “I’m flattered that President Trump would offer to me, but it’s not something that I’m interested in.”
“People from the team have reached out to me,” he said.
Trump senior adviser Chris LaCivita rejected the claim that the Trump campaign approached Kennedy.
“This is 100% FAKE NEWS — NO ONE from the Trump Campaign ever approached RFK jr [or ever will] — one of the most LIBERAL and radical environmentalists in the country,” LaCivita posted to X. “For all the fake news — update your stories.”
Trump has previously hinted that he’s already made his decision on his next running mate but earlier this month told Fox News’s Bret Baier that he’s in no rush to reveal his choice.
