Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez sat down for a virtual chat with Joe Biden before the general election.
The couple participated in a conversation about the importance of voting for the Democratic presidential nominee, as seen in a video uploaded to YouTube on Friday.
“We are excited and excited to vote,”; Rodriguez said. “I think our voice has never been more important. We want to come together as a team to defeat COVID and revitalize the US economy that needs all of us.”
Lopez added, “For me, it’s [about] uniting the country again, you know, erasing this hatred. Thinking about my kids walking into a world where it’s OK to be racist or naughty because our administration says it’s OK – that, to me, is really sad because it’s not the country I believe I grew up in. “
In the video segment, which also features Biden’s wife, Jill, they talk about the need to contain a COVID-19 outbreak, which has indefinitely affected the Latino population, and the potential there are Latin voices.
“My kind of hope and quest for the Latino community is that they begin to understand their power,” J. Lo said. “The number of their vote.”
