Billie Eilish made an appearance at the 2020 Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night and she didn’t hold back about her feelings for President Donald Trump.
“You don’t need me to tell you things are a mess. 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,” said Eilish during the televised broadcast. “Leaders who will fight against systemic racism and inequality, and that starts by voting for someone who understands how much is at stake, someone who is building a team that shares our values. It starts with voting against Donald Trump and for Joe Biden.”
