Through a video chat on Instagram, Jennifer López and Alex Rodríguez showed their public support for the presidential elections to the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, with whom they discussed various issues.
“I think our voice has never been more important. We want to come together as a team to defeat covid-19 and rebuild this American economy that needs us all. “, said the former baseball player.
Biden assured that “there is much to do,” recognizing that a Latino is three times more likely to contract the virus, compared to a white person. “There are 3 million unemployed and 200,000 dreamers working on the front lines of essential workers who risk their lives now ”, added.
Both the singer and the ex-athlete showed their excitement by giving Biden their vote. “For me, it’s about unifying the nation again, getting rid of this hatred,” said López, who pointedly hated the simple fact of imagining his children “walking in a world where it is okay to be racist or to be prejudiced because our administration says it is okay.”
For his part, Rodríguez specified that the presidential election does not involve having or not having a party affiliation, but rather having a sense of humanity. “I think of those young Latinos and African Americans who need help. (I hope) they get the support they need, ”he said.
López specified that he has been holding talks with Latina women to make them understand the importance of their voice and vote. Later, Rodríguez intoned in Spanish his invitation for the Latino community to exercise its right: “Please go to the ballot and vote this year”, concluded.
