Wisconsin Democrats Blast Trump’s Calls for Economy to Crash

MADISON, Wis. — In an interview on Fox News last night, Donald Trump called for the economy to crash—which would devastate millions of working Wisconsinites. In response, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Oslund released the following statement:

“For years, Donald Trump has been committed to destroying the economy for Wisconsin families, and now that Wisconsinites are reaping historic gains from Bidenomics—from lower costs to record job growth—Trump is calling for the economy to crash. With Trump’s record as the worst president for jobs in modern American history, it doesn’t come as a surprise that he would root for Wisconsinites’ livelihoods to be crushed. Fortunately, President Biden and Vice President Harris have turned the country around from Trump’s failed MAGAnomics agenda and built a booming economy that’s delivering real results across our state. The contrast is clear as day between Trump’s plans to raise costs and cripple the economy and President Biden’s agenda that’s building the economy from the bottom up and the middle out—and Wisconsinites will remember that contrast at the ballot box this November.”

While Trump roots for the economy to be destroyed, President Biden is delivering for working Wisconsinites:

  • President Biden has helped create more than 14 million jobs, including 162,800 in Wisconsin alone, and helped create more jobs last year than during any year under Donald Trump.
  • Donald Trump has the worst jobs record since the Great Depression.
  • Under President Biden, 800,000 manufacturing jobs have been created, and another 875,000 in construction and engineering.
  • That’s more than at any point under Donald Trump.
  • 221,100 Wisconsinites will save an average of $800 on health insurance in 2024 and 1.2 million seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries in Wisconsin will save on prescription drug costs thanks to President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act.
  • Donald Trump wants to repeal the Inflation Reduction Act, which would raise Wisconsinites’ costs.
