Billie Eilish: "Donald Trump Is Destroying Our Country And Everything We Care About"
"We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and COVID, not deny them, leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality."
Pop star and Grammy winner Billie Eilish took the virtual stage at the third night of the Democratic National Convention to remind voters about President Trump’s shameful track record on immigration, climate change, and the country’s response to COVID-19.
"Donald Trump is destroying our country and everything we care about," Eilish said. "We need leaders who will solve problems like climate change and COVID, not deny them, leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality."
Eilish then urged Americans to vote against Trump and to focus their efforts on electing Democratic presidential nominee former VP Joe Biden.
