FACT SHEET: Trump Has Broken His Promises To Working Ohioans

3 mins read

More than five years ago, Donald Trump launched his campaign from Trump Tower with a promise to “be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.” Instead, he’s on track to oversee net job loss during his term — the first president to do so since Herbert Hoover. Meanwhile, working families across Ohio are paying the price for his devastating failures.

In The Wake Of Trump’s Disastrous Pandemic Response, Working Ohioans Are Struggling To Afford The Basics.

  • Trump’s failure to prepare for and respond to the pandemic has had a devastating impact on Ohio’s economy. More than 1.5 million Ohioans have filed for unemployment since the start of the pandemic. 
  • But instead of taking action to keep families afloat, Trump slashed enhanced unemployment benefits in half for tens of millions of Americans and zeroed out benefits for more than a million low-wage workers.

Even Before The Pandemic, Trump Broke His Promise To “Fill Up Those Factories” And Keep Ohioans On The Job.

  • Speaking in Youngstown in 2017, Trump told working families, “Don’t sell your house. […] We’re going to get those values up. We’re going to get those jobs coming back, and we’re going to fill up those factories or rip them down and build brand new ones.”

Trump Broke His Promise To “Take Care Of Our Farmers.”

  • Speaking in Columbus in 2018, Trump promised, “We’re going to take care of our farmers. Our farmers are great American patriots.”
