A leader of the Columbian socialist movement and a former member of a terror group has endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States.
According to The Daily Wire:
Colombian Senator Gustavo Petro, one of the leaders of the far-left socialist movement in the country, championed presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s candidacy on Monday, saying that if he were able to vote in U.S. elections that he would vote for Biden.
“Did you endorse Joe Biden as a candidate for President of the United States?” CNN host Juan Carlos Lopez asked.
“Well, if I could vote, which I cannot. I’m not a citizen of the United States,” Petro responded. “But if I could vote in the United States, in the interest of my Latin American people, I would vote for Biden, without a doubt.”
Reuters reported that Petro spent “years in the now-defunct M19 rebel group – which stormed the Supreme Court in 1985, leading to the deaths of more than 100 people,” Reuters reported.
The Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium lists the group as: “Left Wing Terrorist Groups (Maoist, Marxist, Communist, Socialist).”
