Over 1000 economists, including several Nobel Prize laureates, have come out against President Trump‘s reelection bid.
“In just one term in office, Donald Trump has rendered the United States unrecognizable, and has faced no consequences for doing so,” the economists wrote in an open letter.
The signatories describe Trump’s time in office as a “sustained assault” on democracy and his coronavirus pandemic response as full of “dangerous misinformation.”
“For these reasons, we strongly recommend that the electorate do what no one else can: reclaim your democracy by voting to remove Donald Trump from office,” the economists wrote.
Prominent economists such as Nobel laureates Paul Milgrom, Oliver Hart and Alvin Roth were among those who signed the letter.
