DNC Statement on Donald Trump Fundraiser in The Hamptons

Ahead of Donald Trump’s fundraiser in Southampton, New York today, Democratic National Committee spokesperson Will Baskin-Gerwitz released the following statement:

“The invitation to today’s fundraiser promises Trump’s donors ‘the trip of a lifetime,’ but for most New Yorkers, that would be a trip back to the start of the year — before Trump failed to respond to the pandemic, before over 30,000 of their neighbors succumbed to COVID, and before more than a million lost their jobs. But no one can undo the damage he’s caused, so there’s only one trip that’s top of mind for working Americans: the one Trump will take in January when he finally leaves the White House for good.”


Promise: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.” [CNBC Interview, 1/22/20]

Promise: “We are marshalling the full power of the federal government and the private sector to protect the American people.” [Oval Office Address, 3/11/20]
