Former Vice President and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden demonstrated a simple way to silence President Donald Trump’s outrageous claims once and for all in a new ad released Friday.
The spot begins with audio of Trump falsely claiming that the climate crisis is a hoax — but the sound of the president’s conspiracy theories gets quieter and quieter as a pen fills in a circle to vote for Biden.
“You have the power to silence him,” the tweet sharing the ad read.
Trump has repeatedly called global warming “bullshit,” and his administration has pursued an anti-environment agenda by slashing climate regulations and promoting the use of fossil fuels.
Biden, meanwhile, has called Trump a “climate arsonist” and has proposed transitioning America’s electricity grid off gas and coal by 2035.
You have the power to silence him.
