RFK Jr. to enrich workers and protect American industries by passing tariffs on foreign imports
Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has vowed to enrich the American working class and to sustain American industries by imposing tariffs on foreign imports
In a series of posts on Twitter revealing another part of his platform, Kennedy lamented how the country's very top earners – the billionaire elites – are seeing their share of income grow exponentially, while the share of income among working and middle-class Americans has steadily declined.

"The top share of income going to the top 10 percent has increased from 35 percent in 1945 to more than 45 percent today," wrote Kennedy. "Capitalism only functions equitably if workers … can claim a fair share of the economic pie."
To rectify this decline in the income growth of the American working and middle classes, Kennedy said that, as president, he would consider imposing tariffs on foreign imports and using the proceeds to protect workers and industries.
"As president, I will protect American labor and American industry. One thing I will consider: Tariffs on imports from countries that allow exploitation of workers," he wrote. "American industries should not be forced to offshore to low-wage areas as nations compete with each other to sacrifice wages and working conditions in a 'race to the bottom.'"
American middle class being systematically destroyed – by COVID-19 lockdowns, warmongering
Since the beginning of his campaign
, Kennedy has talked about how the American middle class is being weakened. Late last month, right after he announced his bid for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination, he noted how the American middle class was "systematically" wiped out
as a result of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdowns.
"The strength of a nation comes from a strong economy and a vibrant middle class, and we have wiped out the middle class in the country systematically," said Kennedy during an interview on Fox News
He pointed out how lockdowns were exceptionally costly on the middle class and how they only truly benefited the wealthy.
In another interview, Kennedy called Democrats the "party of war"
as he lamented how billions of dollars are being sent overseas at the expense of taxpayers, especially middle class ones.
"The Democratic Party at this point has become the party of war," he said. "We've sent $113 billion to Ukraine."
Kennedy added that a lot of Americans are tired of the "forever wars" at a time when more than half of Americans can't even "put their hands on $1,000 if they have an emergency."
"Our real national strength is going to come from economic power and a robust economy and a robust middle class and not from projecting military power abroad," he added. "[Biden] says that the economy is humming along, but that's not what I hear when I'm out in western Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Hampshire, Florida. I see people really living in a state of desperation that I never thought I would see in the United States of America."
The American middle class, as of 2021, is made up of approximately 77.4 million U.S. households who have an annual income of between $27,000 to $141,000. The top one percent of income earners in the country holds more wealth than all of these people combined.
