Nobel Prize Winners Endorse Clinton for President
70 Nobel Prize winners endorsed Hillary Clinton on Tuesday via an open letter to the American people.
The Hill reports:
In the letter, the laureates wrote that Clinton will preserve the country’s freedoms, safeguard national security and unite the country to work toward a better future.
“It is imperative that Hillary Clinton be elected as the next President of the United States,” the laureates wrote.
“Some of the most pressing problems that the new President will face — the devastating effects of debilitating diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, the need for alternative sources of energy, and climate change and its consequences — require vigorous support for science and technology and the assurance that scientific knowledge will inform public policy.”
That support is essential to the U.S’s economic future, they wrote.
“Strong advocacy for science agencies, initiatives to promote innovation and sensible immigration and education policies are crucial to the continued preeminence of the U.S. scientific work force. We need a president who will support and advance policies that will enable science and technology to flourish in our country and to provide the basis of important policy decisions.”
The letter makes no mention of Clinton’s Republican rival, Donald Trump.
