“My plan would be to start very, very small, perhaps 1% of issued T-bills would be backed by hard currency, by gold, silver platinum or bitcoin.”


Kennedy Jr. plans to gradually increase the allocation depending on the outcome of the initial phase. If elected president, his administration will work on policies to reform the financial system, backing the dollar and U.S. debt obligations with hard assets, and growing business and tech jobs in the US.
