DNC launches digital homepage takeover highlighting Trump’s failed COVID-19 response in The Triangle Tribune, a Black Newspaper

Ahead of President Trump’s trip to The Triangle today, the Democratic National Committee reserved a homepage takeover of The Triangle Tribune, a Black newspaper, highlighting Trump’s failed coronavirus response. The Triangle Tribune reaches voters in Morrisville, where Trump is set to visit today.

Additionally, today at noon, the North Carolina Democratic Party hosted a press call featuring congressional candidate Deborah Ross, NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin and State Senator Jay Chaudhuri to discuss how Trump’s failed, ineffective coronavirus response has hurt North Carolinans and resulted in almost 109,000 cases and nearly 1,800 deaths statewide. The speakers also highlighted how teachers and parents are plagued by uncertainty around sending students back to school, and the Trump administration is making it worse by threatening to cut funding for public schools that don’t reopen.

“At every turn, Donald Trump’s incompetence has made this crisis worse — especially for communities of color —  and North Carolinians have paid the price,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “As cases continue spiking across the state, North Carolinians are worried about how they’re going to keep food on the table and whether they can send their children back to school safely. And instead of rolling up his sleeves and doing the work, Trump would rather pick fights on Twitter and pose for photo ops. Enough is enough. We need a president who can pick up the pieces and put our nation back together. We need Joe Biden.”

The homepage takeover utilizes all of the advertising space on The Triangle Tribune’s homepage — including multiple banner ads — and will run for 24 hours. Images of the ads are below:
