In response to Trump’s failure to prepare and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic which has led to an unemployment rate of 13.3%, including a 14.5% unemployment rate in the Granite State, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“Today, Donald Trump and the NH GOP are celebrating that 21 million Americans and over 100,000 Granite Staters are unemployed and more than 100,000 Americans are dead due to Donald Trump’s chaotic and unprepared response to the coronavirus pandemic. This is not ‘joyous’ as Trump stated and it’s certainly not ‘the strongest economy we’ve ever seen’ as NHGOP alleged.
“Trump failed to prepare for a pandemic, and as a result, we’ve seen the worst unemployment since the Great Depression.”
“Donald Trump ignored warnings, failed to ramp up testing or secure supplies, and downplayed the crisis for months. And while New Hampshire’s lowest-income workers have been hit hardest by this crisis, America’s billionaires have gotten richer and continue to profit.”
