Without the votes of a majority of Latinos, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would not have won the White House. It would have been impossible.
Journalists like me who were born and worked in Latin America are well experienced with authoritarian leaders like Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has lied so many times – more than 20,000 times since he became president, according to a Washington Post count – that when he most needed people to believe him, few did.
