DFL Party Statement on Trump’s Failure to Build Caring Economy, Lack of Understanding Challenges MN Families Face


Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement on Trump’s failures to build a caring economy, as Joe Biden announces plan to create a 21st Century Caregiving and Education Workforce:

“Our state is experiencing a caregiving crisis, which has only been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic and Trump’s disastrous response. Trump failed to deliver on his childcare promises, failed to secure real progress on paid family leave, and is now pushing all schools to fully reopen, but has no plan on how schools, teachers, and caregivers can do so safely. Trump doesn’t understand the challenges working families face, and has only made things worse for Minnesota families through his botched response to coronavirus.”
