In the run-up to Tuesday’s US Presidential election our student reporting team aims to explore, explain, enlighten and even entertain you on the race for the White House.
CELEBRITIES have been coming out en-masse to endorse ‘their man’ Joe Biden as the 46th President of the USA.
From Twitter to Instagram, celebrities from the worlds of sport, music, film and TV have been publicly backing their respective candidates.
Biden celebrities outnumber Trump supporters by six to one, which Democrats will hope suggests that a Biden landslide could be on the cards, with passionate support from the likes of Tom Hanks, Cher, The Rock and Madonna.
Dwayne Johnson, aka ‘The Rock’, has over 300million followers on social media, making him the most followed celebrity on Instagram – and he’s an extremely vocal Biden fan.
But Trump also has some big hitters behind his campaign.
Really interesting, with all the current racial tension in America right now is that Trump has secured celebrity support from left-field campaign ‘candidate’ Kanye West and rapper 50 Cent. Other high-profile Trump supporters include movie stars Jon Voight and Kirsty Alley.
Look through the lists below to find out just who in the world of showbiz is supporting who.
One final word of warning, though, for Biden supporters … and some comfort for the Trump camp: four years ago Hillary Clinton was adored by global icons and A-listers such as Robert De Niro and totally dominated the celebrity endorsement stakes, but … we all know how that turned out.
Below are a selection of Tweets from the social media accounts of the rich and famous, showing which side of the ballot box their loyalties lie.
Are they donkeys or elephants?
