In response to Eric Trump’s appearances in Ohio today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper released the following statement:

“Ohioans need competent leadership, not more Trump campaign photo ops. Even as Ohio surpasses 200,000 cases and hospitalizations reach an all-time high, the White House has admitted that they’ve given up on controlling the pandemic. We deserve better than a president who’d rather surrender than do his job.

“Eric Trump can’t spin the truth: we can’t afford four more years of Donald Trump’s incompetence. That’s why Ohioans across the state are making a plan to vote and casting their ballots for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”

BACKGROUND ON TRUMP’S BROKEN PROMISES TO OHIO

Promise: “My plan is to crush the virus.” [Donald Trump, Dayton, Sept. 21, 2020]

  • Reality: With more than 226,000 Americans dead and more than 8.8 million infected, the United States has 4 percent of the world’s population but 20 percent of infections and deaths. In Ohio alone, more than 200,000 people have contracted the virus, and more than 5,200 have lost their lives.

Promise: “We have to protect our most vulnerable citizens against this horrible virus.” [Trump, Clyde, Aug. 6, 2020]

Promise: “I promise you, in the days ahead, we’ll continue to put the health of America first.” [Mike Pence, Zanesville, Sept. 16, 2020]

  • Reality: Politico: Trump official pressured CDC to change report on Covid and kids. “The episode is the latest example of how Trump appointees’ interference has rippled across the health department — and how even when career experts can find common ground with political officials, they have been tainted by the unprecedented efforts to shape their findings.”

Promise: “We’re attacking the virus from every angle. And through this aggressive strategy, we will win the war, and it will happen sooner than people think.” [Donald Trump, Clyde, Aug. 6, 2020]
