SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, has sided with Democrat Joe Biden for this year’s presidential election.
In an ad aired by The Lincoln Project, Popovich said he’s voting for Biden because “a vote for Donald Trump is a vote against the very ideals upon which our democracy was founded.”
“Our democracy is at stake,” the basketball legend said in the video that was released on Thursday.
"I stand for truth over lies." Gregg Popovich— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) October 29, 2020
Popovich is seen wearing a cap for the San Antonio Food Bank in the video.
He further says that he stands for “truth over lies,” access to affordable healthcare and equality, and rejects white supremacy.
“Each of us must decide where we stand,” he said.
Amid a summer of civil unrest and a health crisis, Popovich has blasted the president over his handling of the coronavirus, saying he’s failed to unify the country.
Not holding back, he called Trump a “coward” in an interview with The Nation.
The Lincoln Project, formed by Republicans, is aimed at defeating Trump and “Trumpism,” according to its website.
