In an editorial in Vanity Fair, Giuliani says she saw as a child the kind of “cruel, selfish politics that Donald Trump has now inflicted on our country.” She said the “only way to end this nightmare” is to vote for Biden and his running mate, Sen.

“The only way to end this nightmare is to vote,” she wrote. “There is hope on the horizon, but we’ll only grasp it if we elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”

Giuliani said she constantly debated with her father about a variety of issues growing up, adding that she felt like she was getting nowhere. In 2016, she felt that she needed to speak out in a more "substantial" way and endorsed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonIntercept DC bureau chief says Biden picks are 'same people' from Obama years The Hill's 12:30 Report - Third vaccine candidate with 90% efficacy Biden won — so why did Trump's popularity hit its highest point ever?

“It’s taken persistence and nerve to find my voice in politics, and I’m using it now to ask you to stand with me in the fight to end Donald Trump’s reign of terror,” she wrote.

The former New York City mayor's daughter slammed Trump for using his presidency to “stoke the injustice that already permeated our society, taking it to dramatically new, Bond-villain heights.” She said another term would harm the LGBTQ+ community, women, immigrants, people with disabilities and people of color.

Giuliani said that Biden was not her first choice but added that the former vice president is not afraid to surround himself with people who disagree with him, saying it “speaks volumes about what an inclusive president he will be.”

“In Joe Biden, we’ll have a leader who prioritizes common ground and civility over alienation, bullying, and scorched-earth tactics,” she writes.

The filmmaker then pleaded to those planning to cast a symbolic vote or not voting to reconsider, saying, "It is more important than ever to avoid complacency. This election is far from over, and if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that anything can happen.”
