Democrat-turned-Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. criticized President Joe Biden for his D-Day remarks when he brought up the Russia-Ukraine war.

During his speech on Friday, Biden asked different hypothetical questions about how soldiers who fought in World War II would have responded to the ongoing war. 

“Does anyone doubt that they would want America to stand up against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s aggression here in Europe today?" he asked. "Does anyone believe these rangers would want America to go it alone today? Does anyone doubt they wouldn’t move heaven and earth to vanquish hateful ideologies of today?”

Biden also recently publicly apologized to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy for a congressional holdup over $61 billion in military aid.

Kennedy criticized Biden's remarks on social media, saying the situation in Ukraine is not the same as World War II.

"A President of the United States cannot blithely engage in a historical saber-rattling with a nuclear power," he wrote on the social media platform, X. "It endangers the world, damages our moral and intellectual standing, and dishonors the sacrifice of our soldiers. Peace goes arm in arm with the truth."

Kennedy argued he was the only candidate in the race that would prioritize peace in the White House.
