DFL Party Statement on Trump’s Plan to Visit Minnesota Next Friday


Today, DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response to reports that President Trump will visit Minnesota next Friday:

“Just hours after Joe Biden announced his plans to visit Minnesota next Friday, Trump followed Biden’s lead and decided to do the same. While Biden will talk with voters about his plans to build back better after the pandemic, Donald Trump will undoubtedly spew dangerous lies about the state of our country in hopes to distract Minnesotans from the reality of his failed administration. Minnesotans won’t be fooled. From his attacks on Social Security and Medicare to his trade policies that hurt our farmers — we know that Trump is not on the side of hardworking Minnesotans. And to make matters worse, Donald Trump admitted that he lied to the American people from the very start of the pandemic for his own political gain. As result, over 80,000 Minnesotans have been infected by the virus and thousands are still left without work. Minnesotans deserve better. Starting on September 18th, the very day Trump is in Minnesota, voters will flock to vote early for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Tina Smith and DFLers up and down the ballot.”
