Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff is heading off to the snowcapped Swiss Alps to deliver a message against antisemitism, Islamophobia and other forms of hate.
That’s according to the Times of Israel, which said Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband is scheduled to arrive in Switzerland on Thursday and that his agenda “includes a roundtable discussion with CEOs on combating hate that is to be hosted by Bank of America’s Brian Moynihan.”
“Emhoff will make his first-ever appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week to talk about combating religion-based and other forms of hate and promoting gender equity and women’s rights, the White House says. He also will discuss the issues in meetings with foreign government officials and private sector leaders,” the newspaper reported.
Communications director Liza Acevedo said in a statement on Tuesday her boss will advocate on behalf of the Biden administration’s “commitment to countering the global rise of Antisemitism, Islamophobia, and hate of all kinds.”
“This trip builds on the Second Gentleman’s leadership on combating hate, fostering unity and collaboration, and tackling gender inequality,” Acevedo said.
Moynihan was in the news not too long ago over Bank of America handing over to the FBI information on everybody who was in the D.C. region around the time of the Jan. 6th protest.
The CEO was also the center of focus for a consumer advocacy group over Bank of America’s politicized business policies, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
Consumers’ Research charged back in June that BOA has gone “full woke,” pointing to the bank’s race-based home financing and the decision to cut off loans to gun manufacturers and fossil fuel industries, the outlet reported.
“We are putting Bank of America on notice,” executive director Will Hild declared. “CEO Brian Moynihan has wielded the United States’ second-largest bank like a political club. Under his watch, the bank has brought China’s social credit system to American soil by using arbitrary [environmental, social, and corporate governance] metrics to potentially lock individuals and businesses out of key banking services.”
