DNC Statement on Trump Campaign’s South Carolina Fundraiser

Ahead of the Trump campaign’s fundraiser in Lake Keowee, South Carolina today, Democratic National Committee spokesperson John Weber released the following statement:

“South Carolinians don’t need the Trumps parachuting in for a high-d0llar fundraiser. They need tests, personal protective equipment, and a president with the capacity to lead. But nearly seven months after Donald Trump promised that the virus was ‘totally under control,’ the pandemic is still getting worse every day. South Carolina can’t afford four more years of his incompetence and broken promises.”


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]
