NHDP Statement on America’s 200,000th Confirmed Death from COVID-19

September 22, 2020

Concord, N.H. - In response to the news that America has now recorded over 200,000 confirmed deaths from COVID-19, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley issued the following statement: “Today, we must remember and support the families of the 200,000 Americans and over 430 Granite Staters affected by each unique loss from the COVID-19 pandemic. But we also should not forget that this national crisis did not have to be this bad. Donald Trump knew how deadly this disease was, but intentionally downplayed the risks, ignored the experts, and failed to create an effective national strategy. Meanwhile, Trump’s Republican allies like Chris Sununu, Corky Messner and Matt Mowers refuse to acknowledge these mistakes. Honoring the memory of those 200,000 Americans who have succumbed to COVID-19 will be an ongoing process that takes commitment from all of us. That commitment includes holding Donald Trump accountable for his failed leadership and stopping him from failing us again.”
