( – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. claimed on Frady in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that despite the fact that his father was assassinated in 1968, the Secret Service protecting presidential candidates denied him protection. In his post, he noted that normally those candidates who wish to be protected will need to file a request and wait for 14 days. However, his claim has remained unanswered more than 88 days after its filing. He added that his campaign has sent multiple follow-up emails but that the Biden administration had refused to accommodate his request.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas had in response stated that according to his findings, Kennedy Jr. did not require the protection requests.

Kennedy on the other hand noted in his post that his campaign had requested from a leading protection firm a report on the security risks he was facing which was included in the request.

Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y., Kennedy Jr’s father had been killed in June 1968 in California while campaigning. Five years earlier his uncle President John F. Kennedy had also been shot to death in November 1963 in Dallas, Texas.

The Secret Service is legally authorized to provide protection to “Major presidential and vice-presidential candidates and their spouses” for up to 120 days before the presidential election. It is up to the Secretary of Homeland Security to determine which candidates are considered “major presidential” candidates.

Kennedy is one of the Democratic presidential candidates in 2024 running against President Joe Biden for the Democratic Party nomination in 2024. His presidential bid is considered to be a long shot bid.
