Over 100 celebs come together to thwart Trump's White House bid

By Associated Press

Over 100 celebrities are formally standing up to Donald Trump by joining a campaign that’s urging Americans to deny the Republican candidate the White House.

The campaign, which is part of MoveOn.org Political Action’s #UnitedAgainstHate campaign, rolls out as Democrats prepare to officially nominate Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate.

In an open letter signed by the celebrities, they say they believe it’s their “responsibility to use our platforms to bring attention to the dangers of a Trump presidency, and to the real and present threats of his candidacy.”

Donald Trump wants to take our country back to a time when fear excused violence, when greed fuelled discrimination, and when the state wrote prejudice against marginalized communities into law … Some of us come from the groups Trump has attacked. Some of us don’t. But as history has shown, it’s often only a matter of time before the “other” becomes me.

Among the communities it says Trump has attacked are Mexican and Latino people, black people, LGBTQ people, women and their health-care providers, Asians, refugees, people with disabilities, working-class people, American prisoners of war, and others.

“We call upon every American to join us,” the letter says, “to stand together on the right side of history, to use the power of our voice and the power of our vote to defeat Donald Trump and the hateful ideology he represents.”
