Burgum Pushes For RFK Jr’s Inclusion In Presidential Debates, Criticizes Biden

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, a Republican, has advocated for the inclusion of independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in the upcoming presidential debates, asserting that it would offer an opportunity to scrutinize Kennedy’s positions on critical issues.

Speaking on Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, Burgum remarked, “It’ll be a great opportunity to expose him as the Green New Deal spending, liberal Democrat that he is, and President Trump versus two Democrats, I think American people would enjoy watching that.”

Both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have agreed to participate in a CNN debate scheduled for June 27. Despite the absence of an independent candidate in presidential debates since Ross Perot in 1992, Kennedy’s campaign has insisted on his inclusion.

Trump has escalated his criticism of Kennedy in the lead-up to the election, questioning the alignment of Kennedy’s vaccination stance with his public image and suggesting Kennedy could potentially disrupt the electoral landscape.

Governor Burgum also voiced concerns about Biden’s leadership, expressing apprehensions about the president’s “capacity” to fulfill his duties, not only during the debate but also in his overall role as president.

Amid speculation about Trump’s vice presidential pick, Burgum is rumored to be among the contenders. He has been spotted attending Trump’s legal proceedings in Manhattan, which he described as “election interference.”

Other individuals reportedly under consideration for Trump’s running mate include Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Byron Donalds (R-FL), and Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and J.D. Vance (R-OH).

Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris has accepted an invitation from CBS News to debate against Trump’s eventual vice presidential nominee, with the event scheduled for either July 23 or August 13. Similar to the presidential debate, this debate will be conducted in a studio setting without a live audience.
