Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. NY) in support of former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign:
Donald Trump is a coward, a pathological liar, and an existential threat to this country.
Let me explain why this is so important:
In the past three years, Donald Trump has torn apart the moral fabric of our country. He has eroded the institutions and values of our democracy. He has abused the power of his office to line his own pockets and cover up his crimes. He has used racism and xenophobia to turn Americans against one another.
And, in the midst of a global pandemic and economic crisis, he has failed to lead with even an ounce of compassion. He would rather peddle in conspiracy theories, undermine our experts, and dodge responsibility by casting blame upon anyone he can think of—even our first responders.
Now, more than ever, our country needs strong, moral leadership. We need vision, decency, experience, and a steady hand to right the ship. Joe Biden is up to the challenge. Now it’s up to us to have his back.
This election will be among the defining fights of our lives. And we cannot be complacent—not for a second. Trump’s poll numbers are at a record-high. He has amassed a formidable war chest, and is outraising Democrats by millions.
Please, make a donation to Joe Biden’s presidential campaign today. Years from now, let’s make sure that we can look back on this moment in history and say we did everything in our power to defeat Trump.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
