Hillary Clinton has made her endorsement for the 2020 election—and, unsurprisingly, she's not getting on board the Trump train. The 2016 Democratic nominee endorsed Joe Biden at a virtual "Women's Town Hall" event discussing the coronavirus crisis Tuesday, CBS reports. "Just think of what a difference it would make right now if we had a president who not only listened to the science ... but brought us together," she said, per the AP. "Think of what it would mean if we had a real president, not just someone who plays one on TV."

Biden "has been preparing for this moment his entire life," Clinton said. "This is a moment when we need a leader, a president like Joe Biden." In a tweet earlier Tuesday, Clinton shared a photo of a smiling Biden with his arm around her shoulders and Barack Obama in the background. CNN notes the endorsement had long been a "forgone conclusion," as Clinton has always pledged to back the eventual nominee. She'll be adding her name to the list of heavy-hitters who have endorsed Biden in recent days, including Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Bernie Sanders. Bill Clinton is not yet on that list.
