President Kennedy Comments on Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy's World Tour

Feb. 21, 1962 - President Kennedy suggested today that the world trip by his brother Robert had been worthwhile because it had helped make foreign students recognize the failures of communism. Robert F. Kennedy, the Attorney General, arrived in Rome yesterday near the end of a four-week goodwill trip that has included spirited debates with university groups in Japan and Indonesia. President Kennedy said at his news conference today that one of the nation’s most serious, yet stimulating problems is “how to tell our story in a way that makes it new and exciting to young students and also to have them examine objectively the serious failures of the Marxist system which can be told from the Berlin wall to China.”
