Supermodel and philanthropist Gisele Bündchen tweeted a link to an April protest against President Trump and his climate policies at the same time Wednesday that her husband, NFL quarterback Tom Brady, was missing the New England Patriots' visit to the White House.
On April 29th in Washington- D.C. - March for climate, jobs, and justice. To change everything, we need everyone. https://t.co/dZaRiXQV46— Gisele Bündchen (@giseleofficial) April 19, 2017
The tweet links to a video promoting the People’s Climate March, a Washington, D.C., protest planned to coincide with Trump’s 100th day in office.
Brady, a longtime friend of Trump's, missed the Patriots' Super Bowl victory celebration at the White House to attend to "personal family matters." Brady's mother, who lives in Boston, as reportedly been ill.
During the presidential campaign, Brady refused to say whether he would vote for Trump. “Obviously there’s a lot of headlines to make, and I’ve tried not to make a lot of headlines,” he said.
Bündchen was less circumspect, making her opposition to the New York real estate mogul known.
Bündchen has supported many environmental causes throughout her career. In 2008, she began a project called “Forest of the Future” to begin replanting the Brazilian rainforest, and in 2011, the International Green Awards named her its most environmentally friendly celebrity.
Trump has drawn sharp criticism from green groups for his handling of the environment, moving to roll back Obama-era pollution policies and appointing an Environmental Protection Agency head who rejects the mainstream science behind climate change.
“We want to put hundreds of thousands of people into the streets of DC and bring our voices to the halls of political power,” the organizers of the People’s Climate March say on its website, noting they plan to also hold marches across the country.
