The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Oakland County Democratic Party Chair Vaughn Derderian on Eric Trump’s event in Novi. The event comes after a previous one was cancelled due to the venue’s former employee’s involvement in the plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer.
“No matter where Eric Trump goes in our state, he can’t escape his father’s broken promises and failed leadership. Whether he’s at a gun range or a convention center, Eric Trump will spin lies about this administration’s disastrous record. Here’s the truth: Donald Trump’s failed COVID-19 response has devastated our state, leaving almost 7,000 dead in our state and sending unemployment skyrocketing. And despite the destruction he caused, Donald Trump has refused to lift a finger to help struggling working families in our state, tweeting demands instead of taking real action. Michigan voters are already turning out in record numbers in rejection of this administration and we’re going to work relentlessly through November 3rd to continue this momentum and elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Gary Peters, and Democrats up and down the ballot.”
