Incredible but true what seems to have happened in the USA, between politics and sport. In fact, it seems that the Admin of US President Donald Trump has tried to convince Serena Williams and other sports stars for an advertising campaign on the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.
As we know and have seen in recent months, Donald Trump has often downplayed the presence of the virus in the US, with controversial statements unsupported by science, and despite the fact that the Stars and Stripes country is the hardest hit by the pandemic and he himself has contracted the coronavirus.
The $ 300 million coronavirus ad campaign was supposed to go on stage just before the elections still unfolding in the US, but both Serena Williams and the other sportsmen and sportswomen contacted would have refused, making Trump's administrator's proposal fail.
The advertising campaign was supposed to have been funded by taxpayers, which is said to no longer run before November 3. This campaign would be designed by Donald Trump's advisers to defeat despair over COVID-19. Michael Caputo, who was selected by Trump to lead the operation, had also suggested framing the campaign around helping the president.
The campaign was supposed to focus on video interviews between celebrities and administration officials discussing the coronavirus outbreak and Trump's response to the crisis.
Serena Williams last news
Serena Williams is undoubtedly recognized as one of the strongest tennis players in tennis history.
Off the pitch Serena has always been interested in other topics outside of sports, she has never hidden her dislike for the current president of the United States Donald Trump and is always very active for the Black Lives Crazy campaign.
In 2018 Serena Williams returned to play after pregnancy and Nike designed a suit for her specifically to help her move. In 2019 Nike designer Virgil Abloh designed a dress for her with the words Mother, champion, queen and goddess.
The 23-time Grand Slam title champion gave an interview to Vogue where she covered various topics. Here are her statements: "As an athlete, entrepreneur, daughter, sister, wife and mother, I know that I can't always be perfect but the secret is to be prepared for what life has in store for us.
This is every woman's success and every success should then inspire another. We are stronger when we support each other. You know nothing about everyday life and in the end most people went to school less than the very young Greta Thunberg.
No one can afford to judge and in this society no one expects women to be the leaders of the future or the CEOs of the future. This story must change. For me I think it may not improve over time, but those in my position can show that we women and we people of color have a voice and God knows why I use this voice of mine.
I love to defend people and especially to support women. To be the voice millions of women don't have. When I was a girl, everything was different. I remember Venus and her physique that was considered "acceptable" by society, she had very long and thin legs while I remember that there were no people like me on TV, people so "big" There was no positive body image and I also think it was a different era.
"Over the course of her career Serena Williams has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles out of 33 finals played and even 73 wins in 98 finals played. Serena Williams' dream is to equal the Grand Slam record of 24 that still belongs to Margaret Smith Court.
