Michigan Democratic Party statement on Trump’s Lansing Rally

The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes on the announcement of Trump’s Lansing rally:

“Yet again, Donald Trump is coming to Michigan to showcase his reckless disregard for our lives as COVID-19 cases spike. From day one of this crisis, Trump has lied, dodged responsibility, and refused to take this deadly pandemic seriously while Michigan pays the price. Now, over 7,000 have died, over 150,000 have been sickened, and countless have lost their jobs or been forced to shut down their business while Trump tanks the economy. Meanwhile, Trump said on the debate stage on Thursday that Americans are learning to “live with” coronavirus, nevermind the destruction the virus has caused Michigan and the country. There’s nothing Trump can say or do at his rally to make Michigan voters forget the devastation he is forcing on our state and we are turning out in droves to reject his destructive agenda, voting early in-person and on election day for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Gary Peters, and Democrats up and down the ballot.”
