Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris condemned “populism” as a threat to democracy on Monday, including it, along with coronavirus and climate change as the three greatest crises threatening the world today.
In an International Women’s Day address to the European Parliament, Harris warned that the popularity of populism is growing:
“Today, we face crises on almost every front. A pandemic that has taken the lives of more than two and a half million people worldwide. A changing climate threatens the future of our Earth.
“A rise in populism is working to undercut democracies everywhere. Neither the United States nor Europe is immune from these threats.”
