NCDP Statement on Trump Campaign Relaunch

Raleigh – North Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin released the following statement in response to President Trump’s campaign relaunch today:

“President Trump may be launching his reelection campaign today but he’s peddling the same broken promises and blatant corruption he’s pushed from day one. He promised to protect North Carolinians with preexisting conditions. Instead, he and North Carolina’s complicit Senators are pushing a dangerous lawsuit that would rip up our health care system. He said he’d fight for people left behind by our economy. Instead, he rigged it to benefit corporate CEOs and those at the top at the expense of everyone else.

“From putting an anti-public school extremist at the head of our public schools, working to open up our coast to offshore drilling, and sparking harmful trade wars that bankrupt family farms and hurt already struggling rural communities, President Trump continues to rig our country to help the wealthy and powerful. North Carolinians are tired of his empty promises and do-nothing Republicans like Senator Tillis who rubberstamp his corrupt administration, which is why North Carolina will play the defining role in electing a new president and Senate who will follow through on their promises and reform a corrupt Washington that values power over everyday people.”
