Why Nature supports Joe Biden for US president

We cannot stand by and let science be undermined. Joe Bidenís trust in truth, evidence, science and democracy make him the only choice in the US election.

On 9 November 2016, the world awoke to an unexpected result: Donald Trump had been elected president of the United States.

This journal did not hide its disappointment. But, Nature observed, US democracy was designed with safeguards intended to protect against excesses. It is founded on a system of checks and balances that makes it difficult for a president to exercise absolute power. We were hopeful that this would help to curb the damage that might result from Trumpís disregard for evidence and the truth, disrespect for those he disagrees with and toxic attitude towards women.

How wrong we turned out to be.

No US president in recent history has so relentlessly attacked and undermined so many valuable institutions, from science agencies to the media, the courts, the Department of Justice ó and even the electoral system. Trump claims to put ĎAmerica Firstí. But in his response to the pandemic, Trump has put himself first, not America.

"The president's vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning"

"The president's vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We are still not on a clear path to a full recovery."
