FDP Statement on Trump Ending Negotiations Over New Coronavirus Relief and Media Advisory

2 mins read

In response to Donald Trump instructing Republicans to stop negotiating with House Democrats on coronavirus relief until after the election, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement: 

“Hundreds of thousands of Floridians remain unemployed, small businesses are struggling to stay open, and people are facing eviction — but this President is refusing to work with Democrats to pass a deal that would help every American. Donald Trump and Republicans care about one thing, pushing their Supreme Court Nominee through and ripping health care away from millions of Americans. We will be reminding voters of that every day until November 3rd.”

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
