Michigan Democratic Party Statement on Today’s Unemployment Numbers

LANSING– The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on today’s unemployment report on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes:

“Donald Trump was more interested in playing political games and praising China than preparing for COVID-19 and Michiganders are paying the price. Now, over 110,000 are dead and over 21 million Americans are unemployed, including over 1.7 million Michigan workers. This unemployment report is a devastating reminder of how Donald Trump has failed, putting big corporations and the wealthy first before everyday working people. Trump’s lack of leadership and erratic behavior has tanked the economy and forced Great Depression levels of unemployment. We can’t afford four more years of this devastation.”
