DNC on Trump Canceling Jacksonville Convention

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Donald Trump canceled the RNC Convention in Jacksonville, Florida:

“From the very beginning of this pandemic, Democrats have put the health and safety of the American people first. Unlike Trump, we followed the science, listened to doctors and public health experts, and worked through plans to protect lives. That’s how we made the decision to hold a responsible convention that will bring our country together, ensure our delegates can take care of official business without risk to public health, and still shine a spotlight on our host community of Milwaukee. Next month, we will showcase our candidate, our values, and our vision to the nation while keeping people safe and engaging more Americans than ever before. That’s the kind of smart and steady leadership America deserves. And that’s the leadership Joe Biden will bring to the White House.”
