DFL Party Statement on Trump’s Plan to Visit Minnesota on Monday


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

“Donald Trump’s presidency has been a complete disaster for Minnesota families — from his attacks on Social Security, his harmful trade policies and his attempts to roll back the ACA and key protections for our air and water. On top of it all, his failed response to the coronavirus pandemic has spiraled the country into crisis. Over 60,000 Minnesotans have been infected by the virus, and tens of thousands more are out of work. His visit to our state is nothing more than a desperate publicity stunt and a distraction. If Trump wants to understand why voters in Minnesota will be voting for Vice President Biden, Senator Harris and DFLers at every level, he should watch our Convention. The voices of ordinary Americans he’s hurt from communities across the country will be front and center.”
