Film star Robert De Niro told the electorate to remember they were “the bosses” as he urged people to vote during an appearance at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City.
“Look at all of you,” the Taxi Driver star told the audience. “You are at this amazing concert because you took your responsibility as global citizens seriously. You took the time to join with other citizens to make a difference. Now we’re asking you to take your responsibility as US citizens seriously by voting.
“Voting is how we tell our government what we want and what we don’t want,” he added. “Put it another way, voting is how we hire and how we fire our leaders.”
