DNC Chair Talks Trump’s Failure to Students and the Path To Victory in Michigan
May 14, 2020
Perez: “This election is about trust, who can you trust to preserve your health care, who can you trust to dig us out of this economic ditch that this president has found us in, who can you trust to keep their promises.”
DNC Chair Tom Perez joined Michigan educators for a roundtable discussion on how Trump and DeVos’ failed coronavirus response has failed students, teachers and communities.
EdWeek: “In a virtual conference Wednesday hosted by the DNC that focused on how Michigan’s schools are coping with the coronavirus pandemic, DNC Chairman Tom Perez sharply criticized how Trump and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos have addressed a wide variety of education issues.”
Chair Perez also joined Fox 2 in Detroit to talk about Joe Biden’s strong path to victory in Michigan.
“This election is about trust, who can you trust to preserve your health care, who can you trust to dig us out of this economic ditch that this president has found us in, who can you trust to keep their promises. Joe Biden is a known commodity in Michigan. Barack Obama and Joe Biden saved the auto industry and Michiganders will remember that. Joe Biden wants to ensure that Michiganders have access to opportunity.
“This election will be about common decency, this election will be about who can lift us out of the worst economic trouble since the Great Depression …The issue is not someone’s age, the issue is someone’s character, what can they do for you. And the best demonstration of what they will do for you in the future is what they have done for you in the past.
“Joe Biden has been a steady hand at the tiller. He is someone who has fought for the right to form a union. He is someone who has fought for health care for all. He is someone who understands that we have to lead around the world, he has the respect of global leaders.”
