(SNews) – Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has praised his potential 2024 election rival President Donald Trump.
RFK Jr. spoke about Trump during an appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” today.
Steve Doocy asked Kennedy if he will debate Democrat President Joe Biden, saying it “doesn’t look like it will happen.”
Kennedy said it is critical that Biden debate him, not run scared.
Biden will eventually have to debate Trump if the Democrat president continues his campaign.
Kennedy said: “We’re gonna try to get the president to debate, we think it’s really important.
“It is important for the Democratic party because ultimately the president will have to debate a Republican, and likely, we don’t know, but it’s gonna be Trump.
“Trump is probably the most successful debater in this country since Lincoln-Douglas in the way he dispatched 16 Republican opponents, one after the other, in 2016.
“It was really quite extraordinary.
“He has his own technique that people like.
“And it is like going to a prize fight and you need practice.
“And that usually happens during a primary.
“And asking the president not to debate during the primary is like asking a prize fighter to practice for his big bout by sitting on the couch and eating Chick-Fil-A.”

“It’s interesting that you’re saying that and praising him because you normally don’t hear that from a candidate, you could potentially run against him.”
