RFK Jr. claims Trump 'emissaries' asked him to serve as Trump's running mate

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has claimed that former President Donald Trump's "emissaries" asked him to serve as Trump's running mate.

"President Trump calls me an ultra-left radical. I'm soooo liberal that his emissaries asked me to be his VP. I respectfully declined the offer," Kennedy tweeted.

Chris LaCivita, a Trump campaign senior advisor, claimed that nobody from Trump's campaign has reached out to Kennedy about serving as vice president.

"Re-upping this from January …was true then and it's true now @RobertfKennedJr ….your a leftie loonie that would never be approached to be on the ticket..sorry!" LaCivita tweeted while sharing a January post in which he had declared, "NO ONE from the Trump Campaign ever approached RFK jr (or ever will) - one of the most LIBERAL and radical environmentalists in the country."

Trump has described Kennedy as "the most Radical Left Candidate in the race" but has also said that he likes him and that there are "some nice things about him." He has said that he thinks Kennedy "will do very well" and take many "votes away from crooked Joe Biden." Trump has called Kennedy a "radical left Democrat" but also said that Kennedy is a "better man than Joe Biden."

Trump, the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee, has not yet announced his pick for running mate.

Kennedy announced Nicole Shanahan as his running mate last month.
