Today’s Flashback: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. “Left the Door Open” on Project 2025

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following Monday’s National Conservatism Conference, MoveOn Political Action slammed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for previous statements supporting the Heritage Foundation, the right-wing think tank behind Project 2025, the extremist policy proposals for a second Donald Trump administration. 

The Deseret News reported that RFK Jr. “left the door open” on Project 2025 and said, “I’ll be interested in talking to everybody.” He also keeps a copy of Heritage’s “Mandate for Leadership” conveniently located on his desk. That doesn’t seem like reference material a so-called “independent” candidate would need to have. 

“RFK Jr. has told us he’s open to using MAGA’s Project 2025 playbook for inspiration. That’s troubling and disqualifying. The Trump and Heritage Foundation effort would gut checks and balances and give MAGA full rein to ban abortions and end the rule of law by allowing the Justice Department to prosecute Trump’s political enemies,” said MoveOn spokesperson Britt Jacovich. “You either support Trump and Project 2025, or you don’t. By spoiling the race and reelecting Trump, he’d all but ensure this hellscape would become the law of the land.”
