At a speech in Ripon, Wisconsin, Vice President Mike Pence offered debunked smears against Joe Biden and a tone-deaf message to Americans suffering economic hardship. Pence bragged that in the first three years of his administration, Donald Trump created 7 million jobs. What he failed to mention is the 30 million jobs lost and 51 million Americans who have filed for unemployment after this administration allowed the economy to tank through their mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Donald Trump and Mike Pence created an economic crisis by mismanaging the coronavirus and millions of families are now struggling because of their failures,” said Kyle Morse, an American Bridge 21st Century spokesperson. “With the White House unwilling and incapable of acknowledging the mass pain they have caused, all they have left is tone-deaf cheerleading for an economy that no longer exists. Trump and Pence are responsible for failing to stop coronavirus from spreading and allowing the economy to fall into recession. The American people will hold them accountable at the ballot box.”
