Serena Williams abandoned the $300 million advertising campaign due to hatred against Trump
What seems to have occurred in the USA, between politics and sport is unbelievable but true. It seems the Admin of Donald Trump has tried to persuade lots of sports stars, including Serena Williams, for an advertising campaign on the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.
As we have seen in recent months, Donald Trump often made controversial statements about the coronavirus’ presence in the US unsupported by science. After all, he has contracted the coronavirus, even though the pandemic hits the Stars and Stripes country.
Just before the elections were still unfolding in the US, the $300 million coronavirus advertising campaign was supposed to go on stage. However, Serena Williams and the other sportswomen and sportsmen on the whole contacted would have ignored, making Trump’s administrator’s proposal a failure.
The advertising campaign was supposed to have been financed by taxpayers; however, it was announced no longer runs. This campaign would be created by Donald Trump’s advisers to beat despair over COVID-19. Michael Caputo was selected by Trump to protect the operation and recommended raising the campaign around helping the president.
The campaign was assumed to focus on video interviews between administration officials and celebrities discussing the outbreak of Covid-19 and Trump’s reaction to the crisis.
Serena Williams latest news
Serena Williams is undoubtedly remembered as one of the greatest tennis players in sports history.
Serena has always been involved in other topics outside of sports. She is still very active in the Black Lives Crazy campaign and has never hidden her dislike for Donald Trump.
Nike designed a suit for Williams to help her move when she returned to play after pregnancy in 2018. In 2019 Virgil Abloh, Nike designer, created a dress for her with the words Mother, Queen, Goddess, and Champion.
In her interview with Vogue, the 23-time Grand Slam title champion covered different topics. Here are her statements:
“As a wife, mother, sister, daughter, athlete and entrepreneur, I know that I can’t always be perfect. However, the main secret is to be prepared for what life has in store for us.”
She supposed it is every woman’s success, and every victory should then inspire another. People are more powerful when they support each other.
“In the end, most of us went to school less than the young Greta Thunberg. You know nothing about everyday life,”she says.
For her, this story must change. No one can allow judging, and in this society, no one expects women to be the CEOs of the future or future leaders.
“I think it may not get better over time, but people in my position can prove that we women and we people of colour have a voice, and God knows why I use this voice of mine.”
Serena supports women primarily and loves to be the voice millions of them don’t have. She confessed when she was a girl, and everything was different.
“I remember my sister Venus. Her physique was considered “perfect and acceptable” by society. She had very thin and long legs while I remember that there were no people like me on TV, people so “big.” It was a different era. There was no positive body image,”she said.
Serena Williams has got 23 Grand Slam singles titles out of 33 finals played for her career, and even 73 wins in 98 finals played. Her dream is to reach the Grand Slam record of 24 that still belongs to Margaret Smith.
