Sherrod: “Trump Sold People Phony Populism … Then He Betrayed Them”

Sen. Sherrod Brown led a roundtable discussion today on the need for Vice President Joe Biden’s newly announced economic recovery plan.


Brown was joined by Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga, United Steelworkers Local 979 President Dan Boone and Mahoning-Trumbull AFL-CIO Labor Council Sergeant at Arms Jaladah Aslam, who reinforced how Biden’s plan for will bolster working families, create jobs, raise wages and help America Build Back Better.


Brown contrasted Biden’s plan with Donald Trump’s betrayal of Ohio workers: “Trump sold people phony populism to make them think he was on their side, then he betrayed them. Go no further than the Mahoning Valley. He told workers, ‘Don’t sell your homes, these jobs will be back,’ and they weren’t. He did nothing.”



Local Leaders Protect the Health and Safety of Ohioans

As coronavirus cases have spiked in the Buckeye State and health experts attribute the increase to “people … not wearing masks,” local leaders have taken action to protect the health and safety of Ohioans by requiring face coverings in public in their communities.


“We are incredibly proud of the Ohio leaders who are following the science and listening to experts who are advocating for public mask requirements to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “We should not wait until we are the next Arizona or Texas and our hospitals are stretched to the breaking point before taking decisive action to protect the health and safety of Ohioans — lives are at stake.”


“This shouldn’t be a partisan issue. Unfortunately, it seems that most Ohio Republicans are taking their cues not from the vast majority of Americans who support wearing face masks to protect public health or our GOP governor, but from the president, who refuses to wear a face mask, refuses to practice social distancing and holds rallies in crowded settings. Donald Trump is increasing the chances that many more Americans will die from the coronavirus, and he’s doing it because he thinks it will help him politically.”
