DPW Statement on Trump Visit to Milwaukee
MADISON -- The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler on President Donald Trump’s visit to Milwaukee today:
“Trump knows as much as we do that the future of our nation depends on what happens in Wisconsin in 2020. But for Wisconsin families, Trump’s presidency has been an unmitigated disaster -- he’s jacked up their health care costs, raised their taxes to give handouts to wealthy corporations, and pitted Wisconsinites against each other for his own political gain. He’s spearheading a lawsuit right now that could rip away health care from millions of Wisconsinites.
“One year from today, Democrats will officially nominate their candidate for president here in Milwaukee. But we’re not giving Trump a one-year head start. Democratic Party of Wisconsin is organizing a historic grassroots statewide operation now, so the nominee can hit the ground at warp speed next summer. In November 2020, Wisconsin will be the state that ends the Trump era once and for all.”
