It’s always important who we choose to lead the most powerful country on earth, but now more than ever we really have to get this right. I could write whole volumes about the failures of the current occupant of the Oval Office, from the way he’s mismanaged the pandemic to how he encourages white supremacists. But what I want you to know before you vote is this: it’s not just that Donald Trump is the wrong choice — it’s that Joe Biden is the right one. In particular, with just weeks until Election Day, I want to share a bit about why there is no better person to lead us as Commander-in-Chief.

There’s no question: Under Trump, the United States is weaker, sicker, poorer, more divided, and dangerously unprepared for future threats, from new pandemics to the climate crisis to growing challenges from China and Russia. The alliances that keep us safe are frayed, our military has been abused and mismanaged, and other key national security agencies have been hollowed out. And this year, as we scrambled to find basic medical equipment and other key supplies, we’ve seen how much America is dependent on other countries — especially China — instead of building the things we need here at home.
