ICYMI: Wisconsin Democrats, Small Business Owner, Take Trump to Task Over Tax-Scam bill and Chaotic Trade War With China

(MADISON, WI) -- Yesterday, Democratic Party of Wisconsin State Party Chair Ben Wikler, State Senator Janis Ringhand, and cheesemaker small business owner Anna Landmark slammed President Trump on the year anniversary of him calling for a boycott of Wisconsin based Harley-Davidson. They highlighted that after promising to bring back jobs and improve wages, Trump passed his tax-scam bill that incentivizes companies to outsource jobs and does little for hard working Wisconsinites. Wikler, Sen. Ringhand, and Landmark all highlighted that Trump is now adding insult to injury with his chaotic trade with China, which is crushing farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses.
