Working Ohioans Can’t Afford Another Four Years Of Trump’s Chaos

COLUMBUS — Following the release of the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ August jobs report earlier today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper released the following statement:

“Donald Trump promised to bring jobs back to Ohio. But at every turn, he’s left working families worse off. Whether he’s botching our response to the pandemic and sending our economy into a meltdown, throwing farmers’ livelihoods into chaos, blaming Ohioans for shuttered plants or using Twitter to undermine thousands of Ohio jobs, his incompetence is costing us every day. We can’t afford another four years of this chaos; this November we’re putting an end to Trump’s failed presidency and sending Joe Biden to the White House.”
