YPSILANTI– The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes on Donald Trump’s campaign events in Ypsilanti:
“Donald Trump showed Michigan nothing but neglect and disinterest while our state was devastated by a global pandemic for which he refused to prepare. Frontline health care workers went without PPE, hospitals faced ventilator shorages, and our economy was sent into a downward spiral while he picked partisan fights with local leaders and focused on sham messaging gimmicks.
“Now, after an erratic and failed COVID-19 response from Donald Trump, Michigan has seen over 5,000 deaths and 1.7 million job losses in our state, but this president thinks he can declare ‘mission accomplished’ and take a victory lap. Today’s events were pathetic, partisan campaign stunts from a president who is becoming increasingly desperate as he sees Michigan slipping through his fingers. Cheap words and empty promises can’t undo the damage he has done to our state.”
