DNC Statement on Pence’s West Virginia Fundraiser

Ahead of Mike Pence’s fundraiser in West Virginia tomorrow, Democratic National Committee spokesperson John Weber released the following statement:

“West Virginians need tests, personal protective equipment, and economic relief — they don’t need Mike Pence parachuting in for a high-dollar fundraiser. Nearly seven months after Donald Trump promised that the virus was ‘totally under control,’ working families are still dealing with the fallout of his incompetent pandemic response. We can’t afford four more years of this chaos.”


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]
