ICYMI: Ohio Dems Call Out Trump’s Broken Promises on Two-Year Anniversary of Youngstown Rally

In case you missed it… On the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s Youngstown speech in which he told the people of the Mahoning Valley, “Those jobs [that] have left Ohio, they’re coming back. They’re all coming back. Don’t move, don’t sell your house,” Ohio Democrats called out Trump for his broken promises at a news conference outside the now-shuttered Northside Regional Medical Center in Youngstown.

Youngstown Vindicator: Valley Dems to Trump: You broke promises

On the two-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s rally at the Covelli Centre, in which he urged people “don’t sell your house” because jobs were returning, Democrats criticized the Republican president for breaking his promises to the area.

Braylin Rushton of Campbell, a laid-off Lordstown General Motors worker, said when Trump gave tax cuts to the wealthy and to corporations, he “made it easy” for GM to idle the local plant.

Rushton was part of a Wednesday news conference outside the former Northside Regional Medical Center on Gypsy Lane, organized by the Ohio Democratic Party.

Party Chairman David Pepper said Trump “keeps breaking his promises” to the Mahoning Valley and hasn’t done anything to help it as it experiences the closing of businesses including Northside and GM and the impending Aug. 31 closure of The Vindicator.

Pepper said Trump put policies in place, such as the tax cuts that “made it easier to send jobs overseas, policies that support corporations and not workers.”

The party is paying for three billboards in the area that criticize Trump as well as yard signs and online advertising.
