Beyoncé endorses Biden-Harris ticket one day before election

One day before the election, Beyoncé took to Instagram to endorse Joe Biden for president.

This endorsement comes a day before the 2020 presidential election between President Donald Trump and Biden.

In addition to the boomerang, Bey featured a second post which features a green background that says, “The Most Important Drop Is At The Ballot Box,” around the image is words like, “Vote,” “Ivy Park” and “Adidas.”

Back in 2016, Beyoncé was a big supporter of the Hillary Clinton campaign. She performed for a rally the former Democratic presidential nominee had in Cleveland in November of 2016. She addressed the crowd during the performance.

“There was a time when a woman’s opinion did not matter. If you were black, white, Mexican, Asian, Muslim, educated, poor or rich — if you were a woman, it did not matter,” she said.

“Less than 100 years ago, women did not have the right to vote. Look how far we’ve come from having no voice to being on the brink of making history, again, by electing the first woman president.”

Beyoncé’s husband, Jay- Z, also attended the rally at the time and openly showed his support for Clinton and spoke out against Trump.

“This other guy … I don’t have any ill will towards him, but his conversation is divisive and that’s not an evolved soul to me, so he cannot be my president,” he said.

Clinton went on to lose the race against Trump in the election that took place a few days later on November 8.
