“We need a climate president”: Actor Jane Fonda endorses Bernie Sanders

The actor Jane Fonda has endorsed Bernie Sanders for the US presidency, citing his plans to tackle climate change.

Fonda told USA Today: “We have to get a climate president in office, and there’s only one right now, and that’s Bernie Sanders.”

Fonda has been an outspoken activist for combatting climate change, regularly showing up at weekly protests in Washington that often ended up in arrest.

Climate change is one of the top issues in the primary race, which has now narrowed to Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden as the top main candidates.
