Twitter co-founder and former CEO of the social media platform Jack Dorsey has made his choice of candidate for the US presidential elections known to the public. Apparently, the tech entrepreneur will be supporting the nephew of a former president of the United States.
Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr is among those vying for the highest political position in the US, and he has gotten the support of one of the world's biggest crypto and tech personalities.
The primary reason behind the support of Jack Dorsey towards the Democratic presidential candidate is his pro-crypto stance. Some of the popular names in the presidential race apparently don't have favorable views of the crypto market.
Robert Kennedy Jr has often shown how he plans to ensure the prosperity of the crypto industry if he is elected into any political position. Even without any position, the US presidential candidate has spoken many times about the importance of the crypto industry in the country.
Jack Dorsey, currently the Block Inc. CEO, said he believes Robert Kennedy Jr can win the presidential elections in late 2024. While sharing a YouTube clip from Fox News featuring Kennedy explaining how he plans to beat popular Republican presidential candidates, Jack Dorsey stated his support for the presidential candidate and acknowledged that he has all it takes to win against other prominent figures like Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.
On his Twitter page, Jack Dorsey wrote, "he can and will." Another Twitter user under the post asked him if he was endorsing the presidential candidate or just predicting; Dorsey replied, "both."

Robert Kennedy Jr Presidential Bid
Democratic presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr is the nephew of the former president of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and declared his 2024 presidential ambition on the 19th of April. He is an environmental lawyer and outspoken vaccine critic and has spoken many times about his disdain for the Covid-19 vaccines.
Kennedy is also pro-crypto, which is the major attraction to his presidential ambition. The crypto community has rallied around him, as they see him as the one they can abolish some of the restricting regulations in the United.
He has criticized the government on many issues regarding the crypto industry, including the proposed 30% tax for crypto mining.
"Cryptocurrencies, led by bitcoin, along with other crypto technologies are a major innovation engine. It is a mistake for the U.S. government to hobble the industry and drive innovation elsewhere. Biden’s proposed 30% tax on cryptocurrency mining is a bad idea. Yes, energy use is a concern (though somewhat overstated), but bitcoin mining uses about the same as video games and no one is calling for a ban on those. The environmental argument is a selective pretext to suppress anything that threatens elite power structures. Bitcoin, for example," Kennedy stated in a Twitter post.
As part of his campaign, Robert Kennedy Jr has called on his supporters to donate using Bitcoin. As for his chances in the upcoming presidential elections, several polls have indicated that Kennedy Jr has some chance in the forthcoming US presidential elections. However, he still has some gap to cover if he is to win the presidential primary and, subsequently, the 2024 elections. According to a poll by Fox News, Kennedy commands support from 16% of the Democratic primary voters.
