Trump’s Failure to Prepare for COVID-19 Costs Over 100,000 Granite Staters Their Jobs

In response to Trump’s failure to prepare and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic which has led to the unemployment rate nationwide rising to 14.7%, including a record 16% unemployment rate in the Granite State, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:

“Granite Staters are paying the price for Donald Trump’s failure to prepare for and contain the coronavirus. Every day that Trump downplayed the severity of the coronavirus, spread false information about ‘treatments,’ and refused to take responsibility for his failures, Granite Staters were losing their jobs. Now, months after the first reported case, more than 170,000 Granite Staters have filed for unemployment and are worried about feeding their families, and paying their bills. All the while, Republicans like Chris Sununu and every Republican candidate running for Congress and the Senate continue to parrot Trump’s disinformation. Granite Staters will not forget how Trump left them behind during this crisis.”
