News from the DNC (Democratic National Committee) and ASDC (Association of State Democratic Chairs), among others, will be shared here.


This is the DNC's Battleground Brief - a weekly wrap-up of Trump's broken promises and everything you need to know across the path to 270. 


"RUTH BADER GINSBURG STOOD FOR ALL OF US." Americans across the country are mourning the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As Vice President Biden noted last night , “Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for all of us. She was an American hero, a giant of legal doctrine, and a relentless voice in the pursuit of that highest American ideal: Equal Justice Under Law. May her memory be a blessing to all people who cherish our Constitution and its promise. "

MAKE A PLAN TO VOTE! This week, Biden for President and the Democratic National Committee rolled out new features on IWillVote.com - the DNC's voter participation website - to help voters request and return their ballot by mail, learn important information about the voting process in their state, and make a plan to vote. See for yourself:

  • (AZ) Tucson Weekly: DNC, Biden Campaign Roll Out Online Guide to Voting by Mail . “The Democratic National Committee and Team Biden are expanding the Iwillvote.com website to help you better understand voting in Arizona (or whatever state you happen to be in).

" 


  • (CO) Colorado Politics: Biden campaign, Democrats roll out enhanced voter participation website . “'The new suite of features on IWillVote.com will be crucial in helping Coloradans update their registration, get accurate information about registration and voting deadlines, ballot drop box locations in their area and so much more,' Ernie Apreza, the Biden campaign's Colorado state director, told Colorado Politics. He added that the site 'will help ensure that Coloradans will turn out in full force this November.' ”


  • (FL) Infobae: Joe Biden's campaign launches an online tool to boost voting by mail . “Today, the Biden campaign for President and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) have announced new features of the VoyaVotar.com page, and have chosen Infobae to report on them in Florida.

"


  • (GA) Atlanta Journal-Constitution : “Joe Biden's campaign and the Democratic National Committee are beefing up the website to help Georgia voters more easily request mail-in ballots.

  • (NH) Manchester Ink Link: Democrats launch new voting information website . “The New Hampshire Democratic Party, in coordination with the Democratic National Committee, announced a new website that they believe can help more than 5,000 Manchester voters across party affiliations expected to vote by mail for this November's election. The website, IWillVote.com, provides information on registering to vote, checking voter registration, voting by mail and requirements for voting in person in New Hampshire and in other states. The website is also available in Spanish at VoyaVotar.com. "


  • (PA) Penn Capital-Star : “Late last week, Politico reported that more Democrats than Republicans are requesting mail-in ballots in such key battleground states as Pennsylvania. And that cohort includes voters who didn't participate in the 2016 election. To leverage that advantage, we can exclusively report this morning that the Democratic National Committee and Joe Biden's presidential campaign are beefing up the party's online portal, IWillVote.com, to make it even easier for people to request a ballot. "


"LATINO FAMILIES ARE SUFFERING": DEMOCRATS CALL OUT TRUMP'S DISASTROUS RECORD FOR LATINOS. As National Hispanic Heritage Month kicked off this week, Democrats highlighted Donald Trump's record of failure for Latino families and continued ramping up unprecedented engagement with Latino communities across the country.

In Arizona:

Arizona Press: Mother of an immigrant family and community leader in Arizona sends strong letter to Trump . "Every time a presidential election approaches, my family and I gather around the dinner table and wonder, 'Are we better than four years ago?' We ask ourselves: Are we more financially stable? What if our children have better paths to the opportunities of the future? If we feel safer in our communities? We wonder if the leaders of our country are honest, have moral values ​​and are respected? With the November elections only a few weeks away, it is clear that the answer to all those questions is a resounding 'no'. And there is one person to blame: President Trump. "

  • KAWC: Arizona Latino Leaders Speak in Support of Biden Before Trump Event in Phoenix . “Ahead of a Latinos For Trump gathering Monday in Phoenix, Arizona Latino leaders met on a Zoom call to say President Donald Trump has failed Latino families in his words and actions. State Sen. Rebecca Rios said Trump's visit shows he is' desperate '…' Look, the bottom line that many of us know is that Trump has abandoned Latino families. Joe and Kamala know the Latino community and we know them. Trump has turned his back on Latinos every step of the way. '”


  • Univision Arizona : “'[At] hour it sees that it cannot win this contest, without the Hispanic vote, then what does it do? It looks for us and asks us for the vote saying that it is with us and that from the beginning it has been fighting for our country. From now on I tell you, let's go ahead and vote for Biden, "said Yasser Fernando Sánchez, member of Republicans for Biden."


In Colorado:

Colorado Democrats: As Hispanic Heritage Month Begins, Colorado Latina Leaders Highlight the Challenges Colorado Latinx Families Are Facing Under Trump. “This Hispanic Heritage Month, the consequences of Donald Trump's chaotic pandemic response have been thrown into sharp relief as Latinos in Colorado and across the country bear the brunt of his failures. Under Trump, Latinos are facing staggering job losses, shuttering small businesses, and higher coronavirus infection and death rates. ” 

In Florida:

Miami Herald: Democrats detail Hispanic voter data as Biden plans to meet Florida Puerto Ricans . “Ahead of Biden's first trip to Florida as the Democratic presidential nominee - a Tuesday visit to Tampa and the heavily Puerto Rican city of Kissimmee - Democrats detailed what they said is a state-of-the-art voter database helping them reach and potentially win over Hispanic voters. They said the data helps them track voters who left hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico for Florida and message on a more meaningful level to Latinos descending from other nations. ”

In Nevada:

Las Vegas Review-Journal: DNC launches new ad critical of Trump on El Tiempo website . “The Democratic National Committee launched a new digital advertisement Sunday on the homepage of Review-Journal sister newspaper El Tiempo's website to criticize President Donald Trump's record with Latinos as the president campaigns in Nevada this weekend. The advertisement shows a picture of the White House and reads: 'This administration has failed us,' or 'This administration has failed us.' It links to a Democratic online petition. "

In Texas:

Rio Grande Guardian: Julián Castro: Latino families are suffering . “Latino families are suffering. We are grieving the loss of our loved ones, while at the same time facing severe economic instability and an uncertain future… Instead of providing a clear model to tackle this health and economic crisis, Donald Trump chose a divisive and gimmick-filled approach. He didn't lift a finger to help our families stay safe or get back to work. Instead, he spent his time attacking immigrants, trying to deport Dreamers through attempts to repeal DACA and undermining health professionals. ”

ON THE AIRWAVES. This week, the DNC War Room released a new television ad, 'Red Handed,' contrasting how Trump publicly downplayed the threat the coronavirus poses to children, while privately admitting its dangers to journalist Bob Woodward. The ad aired in key media markets in Florida, Minnesota, and Nevada:



  • (NV) Nevada Independent: DNC up with first Nevada ad targeting Trump over coronavirus response . “The Democratic National Committee is going up on air in Nevada for the first time this election cycle on Wednesday with an ad focusing on President Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic… 'You took an oath to protect our citizens. Mr. President, these deaths are on your hands, 'the ad says. 'It's time to put America back in the hands of a president who will protect the country and tell us the truth.' ”


“WHAT DO WE HAVE TO LOSE? A LOT. " Marking the first-ever National Black Voter Day, the DNC rolled out a print ad campaign targeting African American community newspapers across five battleground states:

Buzzfeed News: Democrats Are Taking Their Case Against Donald Trump To Black Newspapers In Battleground States . “The Democratic National Committee is launching a new advertising push against President Donald Trump in five newspapers that serve Black communities in battleground states, part of a concerted effort to ensure Black voters turn out in large numbers in states that could sway the presidential race… The full-page color ads will appear in the coming days in the Charlotte Post, the Michigan Chronicle, the Milwaukee Community Journal, the Philadelphia Tribune, and the Westside Gazette in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. "



IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THIS BAD. With 45 days until Election Day, Democrats across the battlegrounds are continuing to slam Trump's incompetent handling of the pandemic, highlighting the devastating consequences for working families. 

  • (AZ) Arizona Republic : “In a 'fact check' issued Wednesday morning, the party said the Trump administration had disproportionately helped white, higher-income Arizonans, leaving everyone else to face higher unemployment rates and other consequences… Party spokesman Tyler Cherry also issued a statement saying families throughout the state were still hurting, 'worrying how they're going to put food on the table or pay their bills.' ” 



  • (NH) Concord Monitor: Rep. Annie Kuster: Trump has failed manufacturers in the Granite State. “Aggressive work to boost American manufacturing during the Obama-Biden administration was beginning to bear fruit, seeing strong growth in New Hampshire and around the country. Unfortunately, New Hampshire's manufacturers and manufacturers across the country suffered a serious blow: the Trump administration. While President Trump loves to talk about American manufacturing, the results we see today make it clear that he has only delivered broken promises and empty words. "


  • (NH) Valley News: Former US Sen. Gordon Humphrey: Trump put politics ahead of American lives . “This week, the 200,000th American victim of the novel coronavirus will die. We're in crisis, and tragically, it will get worse before it gets better. As a US senator, I served under three presidents, a Democrat and two Republicans. All three were honest in dealing with crises. Today's president is not… By knowingly downplaying the pandemic and stifling nonpartisan experts like Dr. Fauci, the president put politics ahead of public health - ahead of American lives - and he wasted months resulting in a frantic, fragmented state-by-state response instead of a coherent national response. "


  • (PA) WESA: Democrats Renew Push On Economic Issues . “Democratic efforts to rally behind the plan will begin later this morning with a Pittsburgh-based 'virtual roundtable' focused on Biden's support for unions and manufacturing. That will be followed by a series of 'Broken Promises' events hosted statewide by Pennsylvania Democrats, and intended to remind voters of the economic costs of the failure to contain the coronavirus pandemic. "


  • (TX) McAllen Monitor: Dems, Biden campaign focus on South Texas COVID spread in presidential bid . “The Biden campaign and the Texas Democratic Party highlighted the devastation caused by COVID-19 in the Rio Grande Valley on Wednesday and blamed the president and governor for it… Together, they pointed at ways in which they believe the Trump Administration and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott failed the area, and argued former Vice President Joe Biden would have a better response as president. "


  • (VA) Blue Virginia : “'Even before the pandemic, the economic situation for far too many people in this country - especially for people of color - was not a good one. We've consistently - during the time of this administration - had an unemployment rate for African Americans that has been double that of whites… The importance of this election coming up could not be more clear, 'said Chris Lu, former Deputy Secretary of Labor . "


HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE. Wherever Trump, Pence, and their cronies go, Democrats are calling out their broken promises. See for yourself:

In Arizona: 

Arizona Press: Mother of an immigrant family and community leader in Arizona sends strong letter to Trump . "Every time a presidential election approaches, my family and I gather around the dinner table and wonder, 'Are we better than four years ago?' ... With the November elections just a few weeks away, it is clear that the answer to all those questions is a resounding "no." And there is one person to blame: President Trump. " 

  • KAWC: Arizona Latino Leaders Speak in Support of Biden Before Trump Event in Phoenix .   “Ahead of a Latinos For Trump gathering Monday in Phoenix, Arizona Latino leaders met on a Zoom call to say President Donald Trump has failed Latino families in his words and actions. State Sen. Rebecca Rios said Trump's visit shows he is' desperate '...' Look, the bottom line that many of us know is that Trump has abandoned Latino families. Joe and Kamala know the Latino community and we know them. Trump has turned his back on Latinos every step of the way. '” 


  • Arizona Republic : “Arizona state Rep. Lorenzo Sierra, D-Avondale, said Trump was bringing his 'snake oil' to Arizona. 'He has made our community expendable,' Sierra said. 'President Trump, we see through your lies, we see through your incompetence and we're not going to take that, we're going to work very, very hard to make sure that you are the one-term, worst president ever in the United States and Joe Biden is the president to do that. Joe Biden understands the Latino community. '” 


In Georgia:

WGXA: Georgia Democratic faith leaders: President has failed to 'represent our values.' “The faith leaders spoke out ahead of the President's son's 'Evangelicals for Trump' event that's taking place in Forsyth. The leaders say that throughout Trump's administration he has failed 'to represent our values, including attacks on the Affordable Care Act in the middle of this pandemic, his complete failure to lead on this pandemic despite knowing the potential dangers as early as February, and his attacks on Black and brown communities in Georgia and across the country. '”

  • Atlanta Tribune: Georgia faith leaders call out Trump's cruel policies . "'I am appalled that Donald Trump did not recognize the severity of this virus and he failed to tell the truth.' said Reverend Leela Waller, survivor of COVID-19 and pastor in Marietta, GA ... 'I came this morning to say: it is time for a change, it is time for someone to listen to others and help us fight this crisis. '”

 

In Maine: 

Portland Press Herald : “Democrats are quick to point out that the highly touted trade relief program wouldn't have been necessary if Trump had avoided the trade war with China altogether, and that the reopening of Northeast Canyon and Seamounts Marine National Monument does not help Maine lobstermen because it is so far away, and was never closed to lobstering anyway. 'President Trump's disastrous leadership and broken promises have wreaked havoc on our economy,' said Kathleen Marra, the [chair] of the Maine Democratic Party. "

In Michigan: 

Detroit News : “'Here's the truth: Our state has lost over 57,000 manufacturing jobs under Donald Trump's disastrous leadership,' [Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Christian] Slater said. 'And while Governor Whitmer was taking steps to save lives in Michigan, Trump was lying about COVID-19 to the American people while he called it a' killer 'behind the scenes.' "

  • Detroit News : "The Michigan Democratic Party on Monday released a statement on behalf of Democratic US Rep. Andy Levin arguing that Trump has 'failed Macomb County.' 'Don Junior can have all the boat rallies he wants, but Macomb County voters know his dad has failed us,' Levin said in a statement, noting the loss of tens of thousands of jobs as the result of manufacturing plant closures in Michigan. "


In Minnesota: 


Bemidji Pioneer: 'The decision should be easy for Minnesotans': DFL leaders, Bemidjians participate in Zoom call ahead of Trump visit . “Thursday afternoon Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan, Democratic – Farmer – Labor Party elected officials, and area community leaders participated in a press call ahead of Trump's visit to Bemidji set for Friday evening. Major themes of the call were Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, Joe Biden's simultaneous and contrasting Minnesota visit, veterans' issues, Trump's relationship with tribal nations and the environment. "

In Nevada:


  • This Is Reno: Dems decry President Trump's visit to Nevada, focus on November . “On Saturday the Nevada State Democratic Party hosted a call with the National Democratic Party [Chair] Tom Perez to focus on the 2020 campaign and activities and issues in Nevada… 'Nevadans have really taken it on the chin as a result of Donald Trump's colossal failure to address the pandemic, colossal failure to address the economic collapse, colossal failure to address our civil rights pandemic, 'Perez said. 'Nevadans won't be fooled by Donald Trump because they've been living with the consequences of his broken promises every single day.' ”


  • Reno Gazette Journal : “Democrats staged a call on Saturday pointing out the danger of gathering a large group of people amid the pandemic, especially in a state where there is a 50-person limit on gatherings… 'Over 190,000 Americans are dead, including nearly 1,500 Nevadans. But still, Trump continues to care more about boosting his own ego through super spreader rallies than about the health and safety of Nevadans, '[Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II] said. " 


In New Hampshire:

Union Leader : “New Hampshire Democratic Party chairman Ray Buckley said the Trump administration has been unhelpful in the fight against addiction. 'Not only was Trump's opioid commission called a' sham 'by its own members, he has repeatedly tried to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from the Medicaid programs currently saving the lives of Americans struggling with addiction,' Buckley said in a statement Thursday. "

  • Manchester Ink Link : “The stop was one of three in the area made by Eric Trump, with the tour not escaping the notice of New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley. 'The only valuable contribution Eric Trump could make to Granite Staters today is to give us an explanation of why President Trump has broken promise after promise to New Hampshire veterans,' said Buckley. 'They want to know why Trump has farmed out oversight of the VA to his donors at Mar-a-lago, why he used veterans as guinea pigs to test supposed' miracle cures' like hydroxychloroquine at the height of the pandemic, and why he calls them 'losers' and' suckers' behind their back. '”


In North Carolina:

Wilmington Star News : “In response to Ivanka Trump's visit, Austin Cook, communications director for the North Carolina Democratic Party, said her visit 'won't provide any comfort to the working families who are struggling to get by right now.' 'The Trump administration has left communities like Wilmington behind, and four more years of the same backwards economic policies won't put our city back on its feet,' he said. "

In Ohio:



  • WSYX: Democrats React to VP's Visit . “He goes around and pretends that there are these imaginary auto plants that he helped create. So, enough is enough. We're tired of the insults. We're tired of him ignoring us. "


  • Columbus Dispatch: Ahead of Pence visit, Ohio Democrats, union leaders talk about betrayal of workers . “Democrats and union leaders dismiss Vice President Mike Pence's 'Workers for Trump' event Wednesday in Zanesville as 'another photo op' from a Republican administration that has ignored Ohio workers. US Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Niles, and three union leaders spoke at an online news conference Tuesday to claim that President Donald Trump and Pence have allowed Ohio's working men and women to suffer on their watch. 'In Ohio, we feel Donald Trump has betrayed us, betrayed the workers,' Ryan said ahead of Pence's planned campaign event as the Nov. 3 choice of Trump or Democrat Joe Biden grows nearer. ”


  • Cleveland Plain Dealer : “'Ohioans don't need Mike Pence parachuting into Zanesville,' said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. 'We need a president who's prepared to lead us out of this crisis and build us back better. That leader is Joe Biden, and this November, Ohioans are sending him to the White House. '”


In Pennsylvania: 

Philadelphia Inquirer: Trump rewrites the history of his coronavirus response in Philly town hall . “The event was filled with many of Trump's by now familiar falsehoods, misdirections, and exaggerations. Even before he spoke, Philadelphia Democrats took aim at Trump's response to the pandemic. State Sen. Sharif Street said Trump had shown little concern for the city and failed to provide the resources Philadelphia needs, all while trying to make it harder to vote with lawsuits attacking voting by mail and ballot drop boxes. 'He is attempting to frustrate the votes of folks, but especially the votes of Black and brown folks,' Street said. 'Our communities have already been hit hardest by COVID-19 and he doesn't care.' ”


  • WPVI : “Meanwhile, a coalition of Pennsylvania Democrats held a virtual news conference ahead of the town hall tonight. The group, led by State Senator Sharif Street and Representative Malcolm Kenyatta, challenged the president on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. They also focused on what they call 'broken promises' that Trump made to Pennsylvania's unemployed workers and struggling small businesses. ”



In Wisconsin: 


WXOW: State Democrats host virtual press conference ahead of President's visit . “Democrat Tricia Zunker, who is challenging Tom Tiffany again for Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District seat ... joined a dairy farmer, retailer, and occupational therapist to discuss the effects of Trump's first term in office and how it impacted people in Wisconsin. Much of the focus centered on the administration's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 'It didn't have to be bad at all. This pandemic was avoidable. Over 200,000 lives have been lost and that's 200,000 grieving families. '”


  • Wisconsin Public Radio : “Ahead of Thursday's event, Democrats focused their fire on the president's handling of the pandemic. Polling shows most Americans disapprove of Trump's response to COVID-19. In a press call Thursday morning, Zunker, who will face Tiffany again in November, and others emphasized Trump's 'failed' COVID-19 response. A statement from the Marathon County Democratic Party said 'the president continues to downplay the severity of the pandemic by hosting super-spreader events for political photo-ops.' ”


FIRED UP, READY TO GO! Democrats across the country are turning out and requesting ballots at a record pace. Meanwhile, as the clock ticks toward Election Day, Trump's vote-by-mail attacks are continuing to haunt him in the battlegrounds.

Politico: 'A huge risk': Trump's allies can't sway him on mail-in voting . “Now, five Republicans close to the president's campaign say that if Trump keeps up his vacillating mail-in voting rhetoric, they fear infrequent voters, especially older ones, will simply sit out the election. In an election in which a record number of Americans are expected to cast ballots by mail, that could cost Trump a victory. 'He should be encouraging people to do it, if that makes them feel more comfortable,' said Karl Rove, a veteran Republican strategist who has been informally advising Trump's campaign. "


  • (NH) Concord Monitor: Voters set records despite viruses . “[C] ollege towns in many cases saw their highest turnouts in the past four years. Hanover, for example, received 2,394 votes for the Democratic ballot - a 70% increase compared to 2018, when 1,406 people voted… The reasons for the swell in Democratic enthusiasm are likely nationally driven; interest in the presidential election appears to have grown significantly. According to the numbers, that surge has, for now, survived a pandemic. "


  • (OH) Statehouse News Bureau: Democratic Absentee Ballot Requests Still Outpacing Republican Applications . “Secretary of State Frank LaRose reports 1.4 million applications have been received so far, well more than the 1.2 million ballot requests received in all of 2016… Democrats are dominating those requests, even in Republican counties. An analysis of only mailed-in ballots from all of 2016 compared to absentee ballot applications sent in so far in 2020 shows requests from Democratic-affiliated voters are way ahead of those from voters affiliated with the Republican Party. "


THE PLAYING FIELD. Trump continues to lose ground where he can least afford it. Check out the battleground trends that will drive these final weeks before Election Day:

  • Politico: Trump hails 'manufacturing miracle' as factories bleed jobs . “Trump's anti-trade agenda and a pandemic-induced recession have combined to shutter factories and accelerate decades-old trends toward automation, eliminating hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs, many for good, including in the Rust Belt states he needs to win in November … The White House's trade wars kicked the sector into another slump in 2019, with Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Pennsylvania facing declines or plateaus in manufacturing employment even back in February - well before Covid-19 forced layoffs at dozens of plants . As of July - the most recent month for which data is available - each state is down between 20,000 and 40,000 workers from pre-pandemic levels. "


  • Politico: 'A heart pumping blue blood:' How fast-growing Orlando threatens Trump's reelection . “The president must win Florida to capture a second term. But the increasingly Democratic Orlando region stands in his way as one of the few places in Florida with a bench of Democratic officials and a grassroots infrastructure to go along with it. As a result, the Biden campaign and Florida Democrats think it can help deliver the crowning blow to Trump in November. "


  • Arizona Republic : “The pandemic year has reshaped voters' priorities as the state and country approach an election that many have described as the most consequential one they've participated in their lifetimes. Several big issues are now viewed through the additional filter of COVID-19… Voters described how their views on health care and governmental management of a public health crisis have changed because of the pandemic, and in some cases taken on more urgency. They discussed how economic impacts from shutting down businesses and uncertainty have affected their pocketbooks. "


FINALLY, YOUR WEEKEND READING: Arizona Mirror: Mr. President: Our veterans aren't 'losers' or 'suckers,' and they deserve better . “When I hear our Commander-in-Chief attack our nation's veterans as 'losers' and denigrate the honor of our fallen brothers and sisters, I'm not just outraged. I feel abandoned… Mr. President: Our veterans, fallen or otherwise, are not losers. They are heroes. " 

  • News & Record: Hardly 'A Loser.' "My brother, 1st. Lt. John Preston Karr, First Platoon, D Company, Second Battalion, 8th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division, was killed in action in Vietnam on May 25, 1969… He was doing his job to protect his troops and is a hero. He was not a loser, he was not a sucker, as Donald Trump has labeled such brave men. "

MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. NEW: Vice President Biden’s CNN Town Hall

2. Trump Politicizes COVID-19 Vaccine

3. Trump Lied To Americans and Downplays COVID-19

NEWS OF THE DAY

4. Unemployment in Trump’s Recession


MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. NEW: Vice President Biden’s CNN Town Hall

  • Biden said this election is about Scranton versus Park Avenue.

    • Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that working class Americans are not his priority — the wealthiest 1% and Wall Street are.

    • As president, Biden will fight for families like the ones he grew up with in Scranton and make sure people like Trump who inherited everything finally pay their fair share.


  • Biden made clear he will not just be a Democratic president, he will be everyone’s president. He will bring Americans together to address the challenges our country faces.


  • Biden spoke about the issues that matter to voters: COVID-19, keeping Americans safe, systemic racism, the climate crisis, and the recession.

    • Biden laid out the steps he would take to contain the virus, including promoting universal mask wearing, fixing the testing fiasco, getting PPE to frontline workers, helping schools and small businesses, and distributing vaccines equitably.


  • Trump has failed to keep Americans safe and owns the chaos happening on his watch. Biden has condemned violence in every form it takes — from unwarranted police shootings to extremists to looting.

    • Trump has done nothing but fan the flames of racism. Biden will seek to heal racial wounds — not use them for political gain. 

    • Biden does not support defunding the police, but does support reforming police departments.


2. Trump Politicizes COVID-19 Vaccine

This week, Vice President Biden was briefed by public health experts and delivered remarks on developing and equitably distributing a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine.


  • Americans trust health experts and doctors to approve a vaccine — they do not trust Donald Trump because he’s continually lied about COVID for his own political gain.

    • Trump sees a vaccine as a political tool. Biden sees it as a lifesaving product of science and research.

    • Instead of listening to the experts and instilling confidence, Trump contradicted his own CDC director on when a vaccine will be ready for the public.


  • Trump is playing politics with our lives. He is putting his reelection ahead of Americans’ safety by not following the science to ensure a vaccine is safe and effective.


  • Given this administration’s track record on PPE and testing, Biden has laid out three questions Trump’s administration must answer to assure the American people that politics will play no role in the approval and distribution of a safe and effective vaccine.

    • What criteria will be used to ensure that a vaccine meets the scientific standard of safety and effectiveness?

      • Trump must publicly commit to respecting the independent judgment of the professional staff at the FDA to make this determination.

    • Who will validate that the administration’s decision to greenlight a vaccine is driven by science rather than politics?

      • There have been multiple examples of Trump exerting political pressure on the FDA and undermining public confidence.

    • How can we be sure that the distribution of the vaccine will take place — safely, cost-free, and without a hint of favoritism?

      • Biden has called for an effective distribution plan for months. Given Trump’s record on testing, PPE, and reopening schools safely, Americans have every reason to worry whether he will fall down on the job again.


3. Trump Lied To Americans and Downplays COVID-19

This week, the DNC War Room released a new television ad, “Red Handed,” that blasts Trump for lying to the American people about the severity of the coronavirus.


  • Trump lied to the American people and downplayed the coronavirus for months despite knowing how deadly it was. It’s a stunning act of betrayal.


  • A former senior White House aide has now confirmed Trump put his reelection above the health and safety of the American people.

    • Olivia Troye, a former coronavirus task force senior adviser, said she witnessed Trump’s “flat-out disregard for human life.”

    • Trump rarely attended task force meetings, contradicted his health officials, and wasted months to slow the virus, which “cost lives.”

    • A lifelong Republican, she is now supporting Joe Biden because Trump has “made this ongoing response a failure.”


  • Trump is on tape admitting that he knew the virus was “deadly,” but that he was “playing it down.”

    • Trump told the public that COVID would miraculously “disappear,” that it was no more dangerous than the flu, and that it would “pass.”

    • As Trump lied to the American people, he told the truth to Washington insiders — that the coronavirus is “more deadly” than the flu and that it was airborne and highly contagious.


  • Trump’s lies didn’t prevent panic, they cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.

    • Now, more than 6.6 million Americans have been infected, nearly 200,000 have died, and millions are unemployed because he purposefully didn’t do his job.



NEWS OF THE DAY

4. Unemployment in Trump’s Recession

  • Trump’s economy is working for his rich friends and big corporations, but American workers have been left behind.

    • Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their health insurance and ability to make ends meet — but Trump is focused on more tax cuts for the wealthiest 1%.


  • Yesterday, new numbers were released showing nearly 1 in 5 workers (almost 30 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance, with 1.4 million workers filing new unemployment claims last week.

    • For 26 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.


  • It didn’t have to be this bad but Trump purposely downplayed this virus.

    • More than 13 million Americans are out of work

    • More than half the jobs lost haven’t come back

    • Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president in recorded history

    • More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good

    • Trump’s actions have “combined to shutter factories … eliminating hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs”


  • Biden and Harris will put workers, small businesses, and middle-class families first. They know we can’t just go back to the way things were before the virus — we have to build back better.

MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. NEW: Tax Policies: Trump Rewards Wealth, Biden Rewards Work

Today, the Biden campaign released Joe Biden’s plan to reward work, not wealth, requiring corporations and the wealthy to pay their fair share while enacting more than a dozen middle class tax cuts as President.


  • Trump’s tax policy has rewarded multinational corporations over small businesses and the wealthiest Americans over working families.

    • 83% of Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax giveaway will ultimately go to the top 1% of earners in this country.

    • 91 Fortune 500 companies paid no federal income taxes in the first year under Trump’s tax law.

    • Trump’s tax giveaway made our country’s racial wealth gap worse, with the average Black and Latino family receiving less than half the tax savings as the average white family.

    • Trump even snuck in a hidden middle-class tax hike that will kick in after he leaves office to pay for this permanent corporate tax giveaway. 


  • Trump needs to get off the golf course and provide emergency tax relief to middle class families as part of a new COVID-19 response package.

    • Trump has refused to deliver for struggling working families.

    • Instead, Trump wants to give a $30 billion tax break to the top 100 billionaires in America, who’ve made more than $300 billion this year.


  • Biden will require corporations and the wealthiest Americans to finally pay their fair share. He won't ask a single person making under $400,000 per year to pay a penny more in taxes.

    • In fact, he will enact more than one-dozen middle class tax cuts that will finally give working families the financial support they deserve.

      • Biden will increase tax credits to help working families afford health insurance, child care, and buy their first homes.

    • Trump is focused on further enriching billionaires like himself, while Biden wakes up every day asking how he can help the middle class.


2. NEW: Trump Politicizes COVID-19 Vaccine

Yesterday, Vice President Biden was briefed by public health experts and delivered remarks on developing and equitably distributing a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine.


  • Americans trust health experts and doctors to approve a vaccine — they do not trust Donald Trump because he’s continually lied about COVID for his own political gain. 

    • Trump sees a vaccine as a political tool. Biden sees it as a lifesaving product of science and research.

    • Instead of listening to the experts and instilling confidence, Trump yesterday contradicted his own CDC director on when a vaccine will be ready for the public.


  • Trump is playing politics with our lives. He is putting his reelection ahead of Americans’ safety by not following the science to ensure it’s safe and effective.


  • Given the administration’s track record on PPE and testing, Biden has laid out three questions Trump’s administration must answer to assure the American people that politics will play no role in the approval and distribution of a safe and effective vaccine.

    • What criteria will be used to ensure a COVID-19 vaccine meets the scientific standard of safety and efficacy?

      • Trump must publicly commit to respecting the independent judgment of the professional staff at the FDA to make this determination.

    • Who will validate that the administration’s decision to greenlight a COVID-19 vaccine is driven by science and not political motivation?

      • There have been multiple examples of Trump exerting political pressure on the FDA and undermining public confidence.

    • What is the plan to allocate and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to Americans cost-free, safely, equitably, and without politics?

      • Biden has called for an effective distribution plan for months. Given Trump’s record on testing, PPE, and reopening schools safely, Americans have every reason to worry whether he will fall down on the job again.


3. Trump Lies To Americans and Downplays COVID-19

This week, the DNC War Room released a new television ad, “Red Handed,” that blasts Trump for lying to the American people about the severity of the coronavirus.


  • Trump lied to the American people and downplayed the coronavirus for months despite knowing how deadly it was. It’s a stunning act of betrayal.


  • Trump is on tape admitting that he knew the virus was “deadly,” but that he was “playing it down.”

    • Trump told the public that COVID would miraculously “disappear,” that it was no more dangerous than the flu, and that it would “pass.”

    • As Trump lied to the American people, he told the truth to Washington insiders — that the coronavirus is “more deadly” than the flu and that it was airborne and highly contagious.


  • Trump’s lies didn’t prevent panic, they cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.

    • Now, more than 6.6 million Americans have been infected, 195,000 have died, and millions are unemployed because he purposefully didn’t do his job.


  • Trump continues to downplay the virus, endanger lives, and muzzle health officials.

    • Yesterday, Trump contradicted his own CDC director on the effectiveness of masks and testing, and when a vaccine will be widely available.

    • Trump is completely disconnected from Americans’ suffering — claiming we are “substantially” below 100-240,000 deaths when nearly 200,000 have died.

    • Trump continues to politicize COVID-19discounting deaths in “blue states.” COVID isn't a red state or blue state issue, it has impacted all Americans. 9 of the 10 states with the most infections per capita have Republican governors.

    • Trump is holding a potential “superspreader” rally in Wisconsin, even after the NIH Director and Dr. Fauci rebuked the lack of precautions at his rallies.


NEWS OF THE DAY

4. Unemployment in Trump’s Recession

  • Trump’s economy is working for his rich friends and big corporations, but American workers have been left behind.

    • Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their health insurance and ability to make ends meet — but Trump is focused on more tax cuts for the wealthiest 1%.


  • Nearly 1 in 5 workers (almost 30 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance, with 1.4 million workers filing new unemployment claims last week.

    • For 26 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.


  • It didn’t have to be this bad but Trump purposely downplayed this virus.

    • More than 13 million Americans are out of work

    • More than half the jobs lost haven’t come back

    • Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president in recorded history

    • More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good.


  • Trump and his Republican enablers in Congress are blocking real relief for American workers. Instead of taking bold action, Senate Republicans voted on a bill that doesn’t do enough to fight the virus, abandons state and local governments struggling with the fallout from the pandemic, and ignores families facing hunger and homelessness.


  • Biden and Harris will put workers, small businesses, and middle-class families first. They know we can’t just go back to the way things were before the virus — we have to build back better.


5. NEW: Trump and Barr Politicize the Justice System

  • Bill Barr has repeatedly politicized the Justice Department and acted as Trump’s personal fixer instead of working on behalf of the American people.


  • This week, Barr put his overt politicization on full display as he made clear he will do whatever it takes to protect Trump and his political interests:

    • Barr called stay at home orders the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history, other than slavery.

      • Barr thinks public health orders — which the Trump administration has called for — are worse than Jim Crow, Japanese-American internment, the massacre of Native Americans, and the denial of women’s rights.

    • Barr, who has been accused by DOJ officials of political interference, said he had the right to intervene in investigations and to overrule career lawyers.

    • Barr wanted the DOJ to bring criminal charges against Seattle’s mayor for her handling of protests in her city.

    • Barr has repeatedly floated a conspiracy theory that other countries may distribute counterfeit ballots, which election officials say is virtually impossible.

    • Barr accused his own employees, without evidence, of trying to thwart the administration and repeated Trump campaign talking points.


  • Vice President Biden will return integrity to the DOJ and will never politicize our justice system. His attorney general will be the people’s lawyer, not his personal lawyer.

MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. NEW: Trump Lies To Voters at ABC Town Hall

  • During a televised town hall with undecided voters, Trump sprayed a firehose of lies on COVID, health care, and other topics. 


  • Trump lied about his failed response to the coronavirus — praising himself when we have the worst coronavirus outbreak in the world, and contradicting experts.

    • Trump claimed he “up-played” the virus even though he has admitted on tape to downplaying it.

    • Trump claimed he did a “great job,” but his response has been one of the worst in the world, with more reported cases and deaths than any other country.

    • Trump claimed “some people say don't wear masks,” but his own coronavirus task force and every reputable expert says to wear one

    • Trump took credit for China travel restrictions, but they were filled with holes and allowed tens of thousands of people to fly in from China.

    • Trump claimed the country’s “excess mortality” is better than Europe, but we have a higher mortality rate than Europe.


  • Trump lied about health care — he has no health care plan and is in court trying to eliminate protections for preexisting conditions with no replacement.


  • Trump lied about the economy — we don’t have a “super V,” we have slowing job growth and Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president since the Great Depression. 


  • It’s no wonder voters at the town hall were left “fuming” at Trump’s lies and “reanimated” to vote for Biden. They know Trump “was lying through his teeth” and didn’t answer their questions.


2. Trump Lied To Americans and Downplayed COVID

This week, the DNC War Room released a new television ad, “Red Handed,” that blasts Trump for lying to the American people about the severity of the coronavirus.

      • Trump knew COVID was dangerous and harmful to children, while in public he said they were “almost immune.”

      • Trump knew COVID was airborne, while in public he rejected mask wearing and held indoor rallies with no social distancing.

      • Trump knew COVID was more dangerous than the flu, but repeatedly told the public it wasn’t.


  • Trump’s lies didn’t prevent panic, they cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.

    • Now, more than 6.6 million Americans have been infected, 195,000 have died, and our economy has been devastated because he purposefully didn’t do his job.


  • Trump continues to downplay the virus, endanger lives, and muzzle health officials.

    • Trump held a potential “superspreader” indoor rally in violation of Nevada’s health guidelines, even after NIH Director Dr. Collins and Dr. Fauci rebuked the lack of precautions at his rallies.

      • Trump said he’s “not at all concerned” about getting COVID because he’s “on a stage and it’s very far away.” He doesn’t care if his supporters get sick or spread the virus as long as he’s fine.

    • Dr. Fauci said he disagrees with Trump’s claims that we’re “rounding the corner,” and said the number of cases and deaths are “disturbing.”

    • Trump’s political appointees are interfering with CDC reports to downplay the virus.


3. NEW: Trump Politicizes COVID-19 Vaccine

Today, Vice President Biden will receive a briefing from public health experts and deliver remarks on developing and equitably distributing a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine.


  • Trump is playing politics with our lives. He is putting his reelection ahead of Americans’ safety by pushing for a vaccine before Election Day instead of following the science to ensure it’s safe and effective.

    • We cannot allow a repeat of Trump’s testing and PPE fiascos when it comes to a vaccine. The stakes are too high.

    • Dr. Fauci and other experts have called Trump’s promises of a vaccine before Election Day “unlikely” and “very remote.”



  • Joe Biden will rely on science and experts to guide his coronavirus response, including in developing a vaccine. Biden and Harris have laid out three questions his administration must answer so every American can have confidence in a safe and effective vaccine:

    • What criteria will be used to ensure a COVID-19 vaccine meets the scientific standard of safety and efficacy?

    • Who will validate that the administration’s decision to greenlight a COVID-19 vaccine is driven by science and not political motivation?

    • What is the plan to allocate and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to Americans cost-free, safely, equitably, and without politics?


NEWS OF THE DAY

4. Wildfires and the Climate Crisis

This week, Vice President Biden delivered remarks on the wildfires ravaging the West and how he'll tackle the climate crisis, and Senator Harris met with first responders in Fresno, CA.


  • We stand with the families who have lost everything and those forced to evacuate their homes; the firefighters and first responders risking their lives; and the millions forced to inhale smoke with every breath.

    • We urge everyone in the path of the wildfires to stay safe and heed the warnings of local officials.


  • The science is clear, and these deadly signs are unmistakable — climate change poses an imminent, existential threat, and has made these fires worse.

    • But just like with COVID, Trump ignores the science and experts, endangering American lives.

    • Once again, Trump fails his most basic duty to this nation — he fails to protect us. We are not safe in Trump’s America


  • Trump has denied the reality that is climate change and its effect on wildfires.

    • Trump denies that climate change is the cause of worsening fires, despite the clear and overwhelming evidence.

    • Trump instead blames California’s forest management and “explosive” trees, despite the fact that most of California’s forests are federally managed.

    • Trump threatened to withhold federal aid from California for combating wildfires.


  • Joe Biden knows we must act now to defeat the climate crisis. His climate plan will:

    • Build a 100% clean energy economy — creating 10 million jobs

    • Invest record amounts in research and innovation — more than we spent to put a man on the moon

    • Build a more resilient infrastructure, more efficient power grid, and 500,000 public charging stations for electric cars


5. Unemployment Claims Rise in Trump’s Recession

  • Trump’s economy is working for his rich friends and big corporations, but American workers have been left behind.

    • Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their pay, health insurance, and the dignity of work.


  • Nearly 1 in 5 workers (29 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance.

    • For 25 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.


  • It didn’t have to be this bad but Trump purposely downplayed this virus.

    • More than 13 million Americans are out of work

    • More than half the jobs lost haven’t come back

    • Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president in recorded history

    • More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good, and 60% of closed businesses are closed for good.


  • Trump and his Republican enablers in Congress are blocking real relief for American workers. Instead of taking bold action, Senate Republicans voted on a bill that doesn’t do enough to fight the virus, abandons state and local governments struggling with the fallout from the pandemic, and ignores families facing hunger and homelessness.


  • Workers deserve a president who will put them first. Biden and Harris know we can’t just go back to the way things were before the virus — we have to build back better. They’ll create millions of good-paying, union jobs and reward work, not wealth.

Friends, 

I hope this email finds you and your loved ones safe. While the wildfires ravage the West, the President continues to spray a firehose of lies on the science behind climate change, COVID, health care, and other topics. To put it bluntly, we are given new reasons to elect different leadership on a daily basis.
 

With 47 days to go until the election (just 7 weekends!), we are firing on all cylinders and want to make sure you have multiple opportunities to take action. Campaigning during a pandemic is certainly unique, and we need all hands on deck to contact as many voters as possible. In this update, you’ll find info on:

  1. Upcoming events (like our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month tomorrow with Women for Biden and Mujeres Mobilize!)
  2. Weekly recurring phone banks and trainings
  3. Our expanded one-stop shop for voting info at IWillVote.com and VoyaVotar.com
Let's get to it!

Women for Biden + Mujeres Mobilize Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration

We’re excited to be gathering during the first week of Hispanic Heritage Month and hearing from some incredible Latina activists from around the country. Join us THURSDAY at 7 PM ET and learn how you can take continued action with Todos con Biden, Women for Biden, and Mujeres Mobilize!

P.S. Yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris released their plan to ensure Puerto Rico has the resources they need and deserve, and outlined how they will work directly with the people of Puerto Rico to rebuild and restore hope. You can read the English version of the plan here and the Spanish version here


Ways to Take Action

I’m including many phone banking opportunities below, which I know can be intimidating. I successfully lobbied my own mom to phone bank for the first time this cycle - and I believe you can do it too! If you’re hesitant about starting, just reply to this email and I’m happy to talk it through with you. Each volunteer opportunity below also offers a training to begin.

One of my favorite ways about how we are organizing in the pandemic is we really are organizing in culture and in language across so many different groups. So if you’d prefer to take action with another one of our constituencies, just let me know and I’ll gladly send you a recommended event! 


One-Stop-Shop for Voting Info

This Monday, we released the brand new IWillVote.com site, which is the most comprehensive and accurate source of voting information no matter what state you live in. There is a large team working behind the scenes to ensure data is rapidly updated with any changes happening on the ground, like additional polling sites being added or extended voting hours. 

Previously, you could check or update your registration and find voting locations. Now, voters will also be guided through their best voting-by-mail option based on their state and county regulations, including:

  • Requesting a ballot online: A voter will be directed to their state’s online vote-by-mail request form. 

  • Requesting a ballot by email: A voter completes a vote-by-mail request form, including uploading a picture of their signature (where required), on IWillVote.com. The form is automatically emailed to the state. 

  • Printing and mailing their request: A voter completes a vote-by-mail request form on IWillVote.com. The voter then prints, signs, and mails the request form to the state. 

  • Requesting a prepaid return envelope: A voter completes a vote-by-mail request form on IWillVote.com and requests a prepaid return envelope for it. The voter will then receive their completed request form via mail to sign and return in a prepaid return envelope.

  • View all deadlines in one, easy-to-read, and mobile-friendly place: We know there are lots of deadlines and that it can get confusing which is why we've created state-specific "learn more about voting" pages that include deadlines, voter registration requirements, and ID requirements for voting. 

 

Additionally, in the coming days, the site will allow users to find ballot drop locations near them, find their early vote polling location(s), and find their Election Day polling location. This information comes directly from the Secretaries of State across the country. Want graphics to share this site with your network? Check out the folder below! 


Thank you for all you do and all you continue to do to better our nation. I look forward to working with you as we sprint towards the finish line!
 

In Solidarity, 

Taylor Barnes

MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. Trump Lied To Americans and Downplayed COVID

Yesterday, the DNC War Room released a new television ad, “Red Handed,” that blasts Trump for lying to the American people about the severity of the coronavirus.


  • Trump lied to the American people and downplayed the coronavirus for months despite knowing how deadly it was. It’s a stunning act of betrayal.


  • Trump is on tape admitting that he knew the virus was “deadly,” but that he was “playing it down.”

    • Trump told the public that COVID would miraculously “disappear,” that it was no more dangerous than the flu, and that it would “pass.”

    • As Trump lied to the American people, he told the truth to Washington insiders — that the coronavirus is “more deadly” than the flu and that it was airborne and highly contagious.

      • Trump knew COVID was dangerous and harmful to children, while in public he said they were “almost immune.”

      • Trump knew COVID was airborne, while in public he rejected mask wearing and held indoor rallies with no social distancing.

      • Trump knew COVID was more dangerous than the flu, but repeatedly told the public it wasn’t.


  • Trump’s lies didn’t prevent panic, they cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.

    • Now, more than 6.5 million Americans have been infected, 194,000 have died, and our economy has been devastated because he purposefully didn’t do his job.


  • Trump continues to downplay the virus, endanger lives, and muzzle health officials.

    • Trump held a potential “superspreader” indoor rally in violation of Nevada’s health guidelines, even after NIH Director Dr. Collins and Dr. Fauci rebuked the lack of precautions at his rallies.

    • Trump’s political appointees are interfering with CDC reports to downplay the virus.


2. Hispanic Heritage Month

  • Trump has spent four years attacking Latinos and their contributions to our country. He has used immigration as a political wedge, fanned the flames of white supremacy, and treated Latinos like they’re not Americans.

    • Trump’s attacks on health care — including the ACA and Medicaid — have disproportionately affected Latino communities.

    • Trump failed to address coronavirus racial disparities and failed to get aid to Latino small business owners while big corporations got millions.

    • Latinos were disproportionately left out of Trump’s tax law that instead benefitted the top 1%.

    • Trump’s decision to try to rescind DACA and eliminate protections for TPS recipients could devastate Latino communities and the entire U.S. economy.

    • Trump has demonized Latinos — saying undocumented immigrants were “invading” and “infesting” our country and illegally diverted money from the military to pay for his unnecessary border wall.

    • Trump’s immigration policies have cruelly torn Latino families apart.

    • Trump treated Puerto Ricans as second-class citizens and delayed hurricane relief efforts to the island.


  • Biden and Harris are building a broad and diverse winning coalition — and Latino voters are an essential part of it. Biden has made clear that he is going to fight for every vote.

    • The campaign has a robust Latino outreach program that prioritizes reaching Latino voters where they are via digital, TV, radio, mail, and phone.


  • This year, the Latino community has the opportunity to be the deciding factor in this election. Between 2015 and 2020, an estimated 5.7 million Latinos gained eligibility to vote for the first time.

    • In six states carried by Trump in 2016, including Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, the estimated population of newly eligible Latino voters exceedsTrump’s 2016 margin of victory.

    • In Michigan, a state Trump carried by 10,704 votes, almost 46,300 Latino Americans gained eligibility leading up to 2020.

    • Trump ignored warnings and didn’t ramp up production of masks, leaving health care workers without life-saving PPE and facing shortages of medical supplies which could last years because Trump has no plan.


2. Wildfires and the Climate Crisis

Vice President Biden released a statement and will deliver remarks at 1 PM ET on the ongoing wildfires in the West.


  • We stand with the families who have lost everything and those forced to evacuate their homes; the firefighters and first responders risking their lives; and the millions forced to inhale smoke with every breath.

    • We urge everyone in the path of the wildfires to stay safe and heed the warnings of local officials.


  • The science is clear, and these deadly signs are unmistakable — climate change poses an imminent, existential threat, and has made these fires worse.


  • Trump has denied the reality that is climate change and its effect on wildfires.

    • Trump denied that climate change is the cause of worsening fires, despite the clear and overwhelming evidence.

    • Trump instead blames “forest management,” despite the fact that most of California’s forests are federally managed.

    • Trump threatened to withhold federal aid from California for combating wildfires.

    • Trump was nearly silent for weeks as record wildfires ravaged the West.


  • Joe Biden knows we must act now to defeat the climate crisis. His climate plan will:

    • Achieve a 100% clean energy economy and net-zero emissions no later than 2050

    • Stand up to polluters who harm communities of color and low-income neighborhoods

    • Create more than 10 million well-paying jobs and reinvigorate our manufacturing

NEWS OF THE DAY

4 Unemployment Claims Rise in Trump’s Recession

  • Trump’s economy is working for his rich friends and big corporations, but American workers have been left behind.

    • Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their pay, health insurance, and the dignity of work.


  • Data released last week showed new unemployment claims increased again and nearly 1 in 5 workers (29 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance.

    • For 25 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.


  • It didn’t have to be this bad but as new reporting shows, Trump purposely did not take this virus seriously.

    • More than 13 million Americans are out of work

    • More than half the jobs lost haven’t come back

    • Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president in recorded history

    • More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good


  • Trump and his Republican enablers in Congress are blocking real relief for American workers. Instead of taking bold action, Senate Republicans voted on a bill that doesn’t do enough to fight the virus, abandons state and local governments struggling with the fallout from the pandemic, and ignores families facing hunger and homelessness.


  • Workers deserve a president who will put them first. Biden and Harris know we can’t just go back to the way things were before the virus — we have to build back better. They’ll create millions of good-paying, union jobs and reward work, not wealth.

This is the DNC’s Battleground Brief -- a weekly wrap-up of Trump’s broken promises and everything you need to know across the path to 270. 


NEVER FORGET. Yesterday, Americans of every background and ideology joined together to reflect on the profound loss inflicted on our country 19 years ago. As the DNC Veterans and Military Families Council wrote, “September 11th is a somber day when we all can wrap our arms around each other in support and love. It is a day when true heroes are memorialized: from first responders, to airline passengers, to the military, to so many more.”



“SACRIFICE” — NEW AD CALLS OUT TRUMP’S DISRESPECT FOR THE MILITARY. This week, the DNC War Room released a new 60-second television ad calling out Donald Trump’s long history of disparaging America’s service members. The ad is airing in key media markets with large veteran and military communities in Arizona, Florida, Maine, North Carolina, and Virginia. See how it’s playing in the battlegrounds:


In Arizona:

Arizona Republic: Democrats seize on Trump's attacks on Sen. John McCain in a play for battleground Arizona. “Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and national Democrats are aiming to use President Donald Trump’s continuing attacks on the late Sen. John McCain against Trump in Arizona, the 2020 battleground state McCain represented on Capitol Hill for more than three decades … ‘Trump attacked John McCain, tortured for years, as a loser who was not a war hero,’ the ad says. The one-minute ad is airing on cable TV in the Phoenix media market as part of a six-figure buy. The ad will be targeted to military families and veterans.”

In Florida:

Bay News 9: DNC Begins Airing Ad in Tampa Bay Area Market Attacking President Trump For Alleged Comments About Military. “The Democratic National Committee ‘War Room’ is releasing a new television ad today in the Tampa Bay area television market that blasts President Trump for what the DNC says is a ‘long record of disparaging comments about America’s service members.’”


In North Carolina:

Fayetteville Observer: “Nationally, Democrats clearly think the alleged Trump comments give them an opportunity. The Democratic National Committee has invested in a 60-second ad, ‘Sacrifice,’ that plays off Trump’s comments about the military and began airing Wednesday in the Fayetteville and Raleigh-Durham markets.”

In Virginia:

Blue Virginia: New DNC Ad Hits Trump Over His Disparaging Comments About Veterans’ Sacrifice. “The DNC War Room is releasing a new television ad today, ‘Sacrifice,’ that blasts Trump for his long record of disparaging comments about America’s service members. The 60-second spot will air on cable in the Roanoke-Lynchburg media market as part of a six-figure buy. Virginia has one of the highest concentrations of veterans in the United States.”


WORKING FAMILIES DESERVE BETTER. This week, Democrats across the battlegrounds continued calling out Trump’s cratering economy and failed record for working families. See for yourself:

  • (AZ) Arizona Democrats: “Following Labor Day, the Arizona Democratic Party hosted a press call with Arizona labor leaders and small business owners to highlight how Trump’s failed leadership has hurt workers and working families across Arizona. During the call, Arizona AFL-CIO Executive Director Fred Yamashita, State Senator Lupe Contreras (Senate District 19), and Tucson small business owner José A. Jiménez called out the devastating consequences of Trump’s failed leadership for Arizona workers, working families, and unions.”


  • (CO) Colorado Newsline: Renewed federal aid urged by Colorado Democrats, labor groups. “Joined by Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, Colorado Democrats and union leaders on Wednesday warned of an urgent need for more federal relief as workers and local governments across the state continue to suffer economic hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic. ‘Local governments and state governments desperately need the help, and the suffering is going to continue until they get it,’ Perez told reporters on a Sept. 9 press call.” 


  • (NV) Las Vegas Sun: Culinary Union to Trump: We will protect our families. “[U]nder President Donald Trump, working people have been overlooked and undervalued. Now, the economic fallout from Trump’s botched pandemic response has spiraled out of control. As the coronavirus spreads across our state, working people are bearing the brunt of both a public health disaster and an economic meltdown.” 


  • (NH) Nashua Telegraph: Failure to contain pandemic continues to wreak havoc for tourism workers. “The Trump administration could have taken decisive action to scale up widespread and continuous testing to help us contain the spread of COVID-19. Instead he downplayed the risks, even as he knew the consequences could be disastrous. Now, six months on, the pandemic is far from contained and the economic recovery has been mixed at best and catastrophic at worst. Tourism has declined precipitously — it’s hard to blame people for not wanting to plan family travel when a deadly airborne disease is raging — and that means that working people in the industry have been hung out to dry.”


  • Asian Journal: AAPI working families deserve better than Trump’s dangerous rhetoric, failing economy. “This week, as we came together to mark Labor Day, the consequences of Donald Trump’s failed presidency are still being felt in AAPI working families across the country. Trump’s disastrous coronavirus response has inflamed existing racial inequalities and economic disparities in AAPI communities. Thanks to Trump, AAPIs are being disproportionately impacted by a historic recession — and scapegoated for a pandemic that his own administration has utterly failed to contain.” 


“IT’S UNDENIABLE, AND IT’S INEXCUSABLE”: This week, we learned that Donald Trump admitted to purposefully downplaying the severity of COVID-19 to the American public. Across the country, Democrats are continuing to highlight the devastating consequences of that betrayal.

  • ABC News: Democrats rope in college students to hammer Trump on coronavirus response. “Democrats have found a new strategy to target holes in the Trump administration’s approach to coronavirus: give college students the mic. ‘I want to go to a game again; I want to be able to hang out with my friends again. And I want to attend classes and go to the library like normal again. But none of that can happen until we elect Biden and Harris this November,’ college student Cecelia McDermott said during a press conference held virtually by the Wisconsin Democratic Party on Friday morning.’”


  • (MI) Michigan Daily: Michigan, Ohio Democrats put rivalry aside to blame Trump for a fall without football. “At the press conference Friday, Dingell described her love for Michigan football and her disappointment in the canceled season. ‘There’s nothing better on a Saturday than a Big Ten football game,’ Dingell said. ‘Quite frankly, I like football more than I like politics and suddenly we don’t have a season this fall ... the way that COVID has been handled from the very beginning is determining what’s happening in this country.’”


  • (AZ) Arizona Republic: Woman who lost father to COVID-19 says Trump should resign after downplaying virus. “Kristin Urquiza — the former Maryvale resident who drew national attention for a searing obituary of her father that slammed politicians' handling of the COVID-19 pandemic — called for President Donald Trump to resign Wednesday after reports he'd purposely downplayed the severity of the novel coronavirus … ‘The president is on record lying,’ Urquiza, whose father died of COVID-19 in June, told The Arizona Republic. ‘It’s undeniable, and it’s inexcusable.’”


  • (NH) New Hampshire Union Leader: Denny Ruprecht: A year of college unlike any other. “While some readers of this piece may know me as a state representative, others know that I’m also still a college student … As college years ramp up around the globe, students in countries with comprehensive national strategies to contain coronavirus are in a much safer position to go back to school. The United States is different, however. This was a global crisis, but the severity of that crisis stands out in America. Why? Because we have a President of the United States in Donald Trump who was completely incapable of handling this crisis.”


HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE. Wherever Trump, Pence, and their cronies go, Democrats are calling out their broken promises. Check it out:

In Florida:

Palm Beach Post: PBC Dems ahead of Jupiter visit: Trump's environmental record is a mess. “President Donald Trump is no friend of the environment, Florida Democrats said Tuesday as the president headed to Jupiter … ‘To come here in Palm Beach County and to claim a record of environmental advocacy and championing environmental issues is not only disingenuous,’ [state Sen. Bobby] Powell said. ‘It's disrespectful and it’s downright preposterous. We don't have time for another four years.’”


  • Florida Politics: Florida Democrats accuse Donald Trump of empty promises on environment ahead of Jupiter visit. “Several Florida Democrats are hammering Donald Trump‘s environmental record as the President heads to Florida’s southeast coast Tuesday … Jupiter Vice Mayor Ilan Kaufer used his remarks to advocate for Trump’s presidential opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, arguing Biden would be better on the environment. ‘Vice President Biden understands the urgency of addressing these climate change impacts and sea level rise and understands the impact that it’s having on our economy and the well-being of our communities,’ Kaufer said.”


In Michigan:


NBC25: Whitmer says Trump is a “threat” ahead of Mich. visit, Democrats & Republicans respond. “Today, during Governor Whitmer's press conference, she said the greatest threat to America's people is the current President … During a separate press conference today where Democrats met to discuss the President's upcoming visit, Flint congressman Dan Kildee called Trump a ‘performer’ and said Trump ‘failed’ the American people with how he handled the pandemic.”


  • WNEM: Democrats respond to Trump's visit saying it's a health concern during COVID-19. “‘He’s willing to let people get COVID-19 if it somehow advances his political goals,’ said Congressman Dan Kildee. Kildee doesn’t think President Donald Trump should be holding large in-person rallies like the one scheduled at MBS airport on Sept. 10. He says Trump’s actions are too dangerous in a COVID-19 world. ‘The fact that you have to have people out there at MBS, and from what I’ve heard, many of them, maybe most of them, not wearing any masks is an indication of that same fact.’”


  • ABC 12: Michigan Democrats concerned about COVID-19 spreading at Trump Rally. “‘He knew that coronavirus was deadly. He knew that it spread quickly. He understood the risks, and by his own admission, he tried to minimize those risks. That caused many Americans to die that didn’t have to, so his visit comes at a very important time where the President has some explaining to do,’ Congressman Dan Kildee said during a phone interview with ABC12.”


In Minnesota:


Associated Press: Trump, Biden surrogates bring campaign messages to Minnesota. “‘We have the coronavirus pandemic, we have the economic collapse and we have a civil rights pandemic and what they all have in common is Donald Trump adding gasoline to the fire, inciting fear, sowing chaos, pitting Americans against each other,’ said Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez.”


  • CBS 3 Duluth: Group gathers in opposition to Trump Jr.’s Duluth visit. “Minnesota's DFL party held a virtual meeting Wednesday, criticizing the Trump administration. State Representative Liz Olson said Trump Jr.’s visit was an effort to distract from real issues. ‘I hope it's a waste of their time to come here and spread their divisive narrative amongst a group of people that really aren't buying it,’ Olson said. ‘It's an attempt to divide us.’”


  • KIMT: Minnesota DFL Party Responds To Donald Trump Jr.’s Visit To Duluth. “Minnesota DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin calls Trump Jr.’s visit a distraction from his father’s failed response to the pandemic. ‘It doesn't matter how many times Trump, Pence, or their family members come to Minnesota,’ Martin said, ‘it will not change the fact that Donald Trump has failed Minnesotans plain and simple.’”


In Nebraska: 


Omaha World-Herald: “The Democratic National Committee, in a statement, attacked Lara Trump’s visit as a ‘transparent attempt to distract from the reality of Trump’s toxic record in Nebraska.’ Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb echoed that, saying the president failed to respond appropriately to the coronavirus, leaving a wounded economy.”


In Nevada:


Associated Press: “State Democratic Party spokeswoman Madison Mundy said Trump and his allies are trying to turn a public health crisis into a partisan issue. ‘If Trump had offered leadership and a clear national strategy to contain COVID-19 months ago, instead of intentionally downplaying the virus, these emergency directives would not be necessary and thousands of Americans would still be alive,’ Mundy said in a statement Thursday.” 


  • Las Vegas Review-Journal: “‘The fact that Donald Trump was even considering holding these unsafe events in the midst of a global pandemic is just the latest example of his poor judgment and complete disregard for Nevadans’ public health and safety,’ said Madison Mundy, spokeswoman for the Nevada State Democratic Party. ‘The state is currently reeling from a pandemic exacerbated by Trump’s disastrous coronavirus response. Limitations on in-person gatherings in Nevada were established to fill the void in leadership created by Trump. Thanks to emergency directives implemented by state leadership, great progress has been made in controlling deadly outbreaks. Trump is only the victim of his own incompetence.’”


  • KLAS: “‘Once again, Trump and his allies are making Nevada the target of their lies and deceit, turning a public health crisis into a partisan issue. While Trump, his campaign and the Nevada GOP seek a scapegoat, the truth is, they only have Trump to blame.’” 


In North Carolina:


Winston-Salem Journal: N.C. Dems critical of Trump's leadership on pandemic. “A trio of current and former North Carolina Democratic women leaders criticized President Donald Trump ahead of his stump speech in Winston-Salem, saying the president offered little leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic and hasn't done enough to help working families amid the recession and racial unrest. Former Gov. Bev Perdue was joined by N.C. Rep. Evelyn Terry, Forsyth, and Kathy Manning, the Democratic candidate for the revamped 6th Congressional District”


  • Newsweek: “The state chapter of the Democratic Party criticized the in-person event, stating it would pose health concerns due to the coronavirus pandemic. ‘Just as he spreads misinformation about phony coronavirus treatments and ignores our public health experts, holding a full-blown, in-person rally is a dangerous dereliction of Donald Trump’s responsibility to protect public health,’ Austin Cook, communications director of the North Carolina Democratic Party, said in a statement.”


In Ohio:


Columbus Dispatch: “Before Donald Trump Jr.‘s appearance in Lima, Ohio Democrats continued to highlight what they say are the president’s broken promises to Ohio, including the shuttering of General Motors’ Lordstown assembly plant, an economic engine for the Youngstown area. ‘Donald Trump promised to bring jobs back to Ohio, then he promised that COVID-19 was ‘totally under control,’’ Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper said in a prepared statement. ‘Instead, as a result of his incompetence and chaotic failure of leadership, Trump has broken both promises and left working Ohioans to pick up the pieces.’”


In Pennsylvania:


Beaver County Times: Trump failed Beaver County workers, families. “Communities like Beaver County trusted [Trump] to keep his promises, bring jobs back to our region, and get our economy booming again. But here we are four years later and the truth is, we are worse off than before. And today, Mike Pence is coming to town to try and tell Beaver County workers that he and Trump are on our side. Nothing could be farther from the truth.”


  • Beaver County Times: Local Democrats blast Trump ahead of Pence visit. “Beaver County Democrats lambasted President Donald Trump’s ‘job-killing’ policies and COVID-19 response ahead of Vice President Mike Pence’s latest visit to western Pennsylvania. Terri Mitko, Beaver County Democratic Party chairwoman, and Bob Williams, a Brighton Township resident and steelworker challenging state Rep. Josh Kail, joined Senate Democratic Leader Jay Costa of Allegheny County on a Wednesday call to address state unemployment numbers and manufacturing decline during the Trump presidency.”


  • KDKA: Pennsylvania Democrats Question Trump-Pence ‘Love Affair’ With Beaver Co. “Mitko says Beaver County Democrats won’t be fooled again and even some Republicans are switching to Joe Biden. ‘People who are fed up with what’s going on in the Republican Party, particularly with the politics there, with the state of the economy in Beaver County and with the shenanigans that are going on in the White House,’ Mitko said.”


  • WTAE: PA Democrats and Steelworkers Union president say Trump has failed to deliver on promises. “As Vice President Mike Pence headlined a ‘Workers for Trump’ event in Beaver County, Pennsylvania Democratic leaders charged President Donald Trump has failed to deliver on his promises here ... ‘He (Trump) had promised he was going to bring back steel mills and we would be stronger than ever, and that just has dropped,’ said Bob Williams, a steelworker who is running as a Democrat for a seat in the Pennsylvania State House.”


In Virginia:


Prince William Times: We deserve a president who keeps his promises to veterans. “Now Trump is running for president again, making the same claims that no one’s done more for our troops than him. And when Vice President Mike Pence visits VMI this week, he’ll probably say the same. But behind those boasts are missing checks and broken promises to our nation’s veterans and military families. In fact, he regards those who’ve given their lives for our country as ‘suckers’ and ‘losers.’”

  • WSLS: Virginia Democrats criticize Vice President's VMI visit. “The vice president’s trip to VMI drew criticism from some leading Democrats in Virginia. Several of them, including VMI graduate and delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy, voiced their concerns about Pence’s visit. They believe his stop in Lexington is a hollow salute to the military that distracts from his administration’s issues … ‘Vice President Mike Pence is using Virginia Military Institute as a backdrop to try to repair Trump’s reputation and the damage that he’s done from his most recent attacks on our men and women in uniform.’”


In Wisconsin:


News 8000: WI union leaders say Trump administration has betrayed working Wisconsinites. “They say the President has betrayed working Wisconsinites and that promises have not been kept. AFSCME Council 32 representative Valerie Landowski said the administration’s response to COVID-19 has failed Wisconsin. ‘It’s wreaked havoc on Wisconsin families. We aren’t getting the PPE we need in our facilities. We’ve seen thousands of layoffs and furloughed employees. This has created an economic downturn that will destroy the economy of Wisconsin and nationally for years to come,’ Landowski said.”


KEEPING OUR FOOT ON THE GAS: While Republicans hypocritically scramble to recover from Trump’s attacks on vote-by-mail, Democrats are continuing to expand our advantage across the battlegrounds.

Politico: Democrats build big edge in early voting. “Democrats are amassing an enormous lead in early voting, alarming Republicans who worry they’ll need to orchestrate a huge Election Day turnout during a deadly coronavirus outbreak to answer the surge.”

  • “The Democratic dominance spreads across an array of battleground states, according to absentee ballot request data compiled by state election authorities and analyzed by Democratic and Republican data experts. In North Carolina and Pennsylvania, Democrats have a roughly three-to-one advantage over Republicans in absentee ballot requests. In Florida — a must-win for President Donald Trump — the Democratic lead stands at more than 700,000 ballot requests, while the party also leads in New Hampshire, Ohio and Iowa.”


  • “Even more concerning for Republicans, Democrats who didn't vote in 2016 are requesting 2020 ballots at higher rates than their GOP counterparts. The most striking example is Pennsylvania, where nearly 175,000 Democrats who sat out the last race have requested ballots, more than double the number of Republicans, according to an analysis of voter rolls by the Democratic firm TargetSmart.”


Florida Politics: Florida Democrats grow mail ballot enrollment edge to more than 700,000. “More than 700,000 more Democrats in Florida requested absentee ballots than Republicans ahead of the presidential election. The Florida Democratic Party announced Friday that over 2.22 million Democrats registered to vote by mail. That expands an enrollment advantage to 717,000 over Republicans. ‘Our volunteers, partner organizations and the coordinated campaign team have worked tirelessly to educate Democrats about vote-by-mail, and with 43 days until the vote-by-mail enrollment deadline we are excited to see this margin continue to grow,’ said Terrie Rizzo, Florida Democratic Party chair.”

ON THE GROUND: 52 DAYS OUT, TRUMP CONTINUES REPELLING KEY VOTERS. From farms to the suburbs, Trump continues to drive away the voters he needs to reach 270. Check out the battleground trends playing out in the final weeks before Election Day: 

Politico: Harvest of shame: Farmworkers face coronavirus disaster. “Six months into the pandemic, according to a POLITICO analysis, these workers appear to be victims of the worst of the Covid-19 crisis. For several weeks, many of the places that grow the nation’s fruits and vegetables have seen disproportionately high rates of coronavirus cases — a national trend that, as harvest season advances in many states, threatens already vulnerable farmworkers, their communities and the places they work.”

  • Valdosta Daily Times: Survey: 82% of farmers suffered financial loss due to COVID-19. “Georgia farmers have suffered substantial financial losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic … A new impact study released this month by the University of Georgia Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development shows that 82% of farmers have seen revenue loss — those predicting an annual loss on average expected to be short nearly $50,000.”


Arizona Republic: ‘It's not what Christ taught’: How voters of faith are viewing Trump and Biden in Arizona. “[Former] state Sen. Bob Worsley, a Republican, is working alongside other members of the LDS church to help elect Biden. He wrote a letter condemning Trump, signed onto by 200 members of his church, writing Trump was the ‘antithesis’ of the church’s teachings. ‘Anger and fear is divisive, it doesn’t drive us together, it drives us apart,’ he said. ‘And it’s not what Christ taught when he was here. We’re to love our neighbor, love our neighbors, love our enemies, not be angry.’”

Philly Inquirer: The Philly suburbs aren’t the only suburbs where Democrats are on the rise in Pennsylvania. “Suburban voters are getting a lot of attention in 2020. Democrats are hoping big turnout for Joe Biden in the suburbs, where Donald Trump’s presidency has soured even Republicans on their party, could overcome the president’s growing advantage in rural areas and small towns. Trump is hoping to revive his dwindling suburban support with a law-and-order message. In Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia suburbs have become an epicenter of the Democratic Party. But the suburbs of central Pennsylvania are also seeing smaller gains, which could have an important impact in November and signal where Democrats can expand their party in the years to come.”

MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

2. Trump Lied To Americans and Downplayed COVID

NEWS OF THE DAY

3. Unemployment Claims Rise in Trump’s Recession

4. Trump Attacks Fallen Soldiers and Wounded Veterans


MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

Today, Vice President Biden is commemorating the anniversary of 9/11 at memorial events in New York City and Shanksville, PA. The campaign has pulled their ads for the day to acknowledge the anniversary.

  • 19 years ago, almost 3,000 people were brutally murdered and thousands more were injured in the deadliest terrorist attack in history. As the towers fell and the smoke rose, only one thing was certain: Our world would never be the same.


  • Today, we remember not only the horrors of that fateful morning, but the heroes who got us through it:

    • The first responders and ordinary citizens who braved fire and falling debris to get to those in peril

    • The passengers of Flight 93 who spent the final minutes of their lives ensuring others would be spared from harm

    • The flight attendants, who stayed calm amid the chaos in order to alert authorities of the hijacking

    • Their actions saved untold lives, and their courage should inspire us all.


  • In honor of those we lost, we hold fast to the values that were attacked, but not defeated, on that tragic day: liberty, justice, and equality for all.

    • We pray for them, we pay tribute to them, and we promise to never forget them.


2. Trump Lied To Americans and Downplayed COVID

Trump admitted on-the-record in taped interviews with Bob Woodward that he worked to conceal the true threat of coronavirus from the American people.


  • Trump lied to the American people and downplayed the coronavirus for months despite knowing how deadly it was. It’s a stunning act of betrayal.


  • Trump and the White House can’t spin this: Trump is on tape admitting in his own words that he knew the virus was “deadly,” but that he was “playing it down.”

    • Trump told Americans that it would “go away” or miraculously “disappear,” that it was no more dangerous than the seasonal flu and the virus would “pass.”

    • As Trump lied to the American people, he told the truth to Washington insiders, that the coronavirus is “more deadly” than the flu and that it was airborne and highly contagious.

      • Trump knew COVID was dangerous and harmful to young people, while in public saying they were “immune.”

      • Trump knew COVID was airborne, while in public he didn’t embrace mask wearing and held indoor rallies with no social distancing.

      • Trump knew COVID was more dangerous than the flu, but repeatedly told the public it was the same as the flu.


  • Trump’s lies didn’t prevent panic, they cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.

    • Now, more than 6 million Americans have been infected, 190,000 have died, and our economy has been devastated because he purposefully didn’t do his job.

    • Trump “ludicrously” compared himself to FDR and Churchill, who unlike Trump told the public the truth about the threats they faced and the difficulties ahead.


NEWS OF THE DAY

3. Unemployment Claims Rise in Trump’s Recession

  • Trump’s economy is working for his rich friends and big corporations, but American workers have been left behind.

    • Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their pay, health insurance, and the dignity of work.


  • New unemployment claims increased again last week and nearly 1 in 5 workers (29 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance.

    • For 25 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.


  • It didn’t have to be this bad but as new reporting shows, Trump purposely did not take this virus seriously.

    • More than 13 million Americans are out of work

    • More than half the jobs lost haven’t come back

    • Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president in recorded history

    • More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good


  • Trump and his Republican enablers in Congress are blocking real relief for American workers, with Senate Republicans instead voting on a bill that doesn’t do enough to fight the virus, abandons state and local governments struggling with the fallout from the pandemic, and ignores families facing hunger and homelessness.


  • Last night, Trump claimed he saved the automobile industry, but the Obama-Biden administration did. In reality, Trump broke his promises to rebuild American manufacturing:

    • Auto industry investment slowed under Trump, even before the pandemic

    • Trump’s tax cuts encouraged offshoring jobs and factories

    • Manufacturing was in a recession even before COVID

    • Trump’s own administration isn’t buying more American-made products


  • Workers deserve a president who will put them first. Biden and Harris will invest in American manufacturing and innovation to ensure that the future is made in America.


4. Trump Attacks Fallen Soldiers and Wounded Veterans

This week, the DNC War Room released a new television ad, “Sacrifice,” that blasts Trump for his long record of disparaging comments about America’s service members.


  • Trump’s attacks on service members and veterans are beyond disgusting — they’re un-American.


  • Trump inherited everything and sacrificed nothing, and has no respect for those who have given everything for our country.

    • Brave Americans who have sacrificed life and limb in defense of our freedoms are not “losers” or “suckers.”

    • America’s heroes deserve a president who respects their courage. Sadly, they do not have one now.

    • Trump can’t defend his alleged comments, so instead he’s attacking military leadership.


  • The Atlantic’s report has already been confirmed by numerous outlets, including Fox News. And Trump can’t hide his long history of disparaging military service and denigrating American heroes like John McCain.


  • As a military family, Joe and Jill Biden know the burden shared by those who give everything to our country. It’s why they’ve always prioritized the health and well-being of service members, veterans, and military families.

MESSAGE OF THE DAY

1. NEW: Trump Lied To Americans and Downplayed COVID

Trump admitted on-the-record in taped interviews with Bob Woodward that he worked to conceal the true threat of coronavirus from the American people.


  • Trump lied to the American people and downplayed the coronavirus for months despite knowing how deadly it was. It’s a stunning act of betrayal.


  • Trump and the White House can’t spin this: Trump is on tape admitting in his own words that he knew the virus was “deadly,” but that he was “playing it down.”

    • Trump told Americans that it would “go away” or miraculously “disappear,” that it was no more dangerous than the seasonal flu and the virus would “pass.”

    • As Trump lied to the American people, he told the truth to Washington insiders, that the coronavirus is “more deadly” than the flu and that it was airborne and highly contagious.

      • Trump knew COVID was dangerous and harmful to young people, while in public saying they were “immune.”

      • Trump knew COVID was airborne, while in public he didn’t embrace mask wearing and held indoor rallies with no social distancing.


  • Trump claims he didn’t want to “panic” Americans, but Americans needed to know the truth. His lies cost an untold number of lives and caused devastating economic harm.

    • Trump has been inciting panic for the last four years —  about everything from caravans to suburbs and crime — and was a constant voice of panic about the Ebola pandemic threat in 2014.

    • When Americans needed facts the most, Trump lied to them. Now, more than 6 million Americans have been infected, 190,000 have died, and our economy has been devastated because he purposefully didn’t do his job. .


2. NEW: Unemployment Claims Rise in Trump’s Recession

Yesterday, Vice President Biden delivered remarks in Warren, MI on his plan to ensure the future is Made in America by all of America’s workers.


  • Trump’s economy is working for his rich friends and big corporations, but American workers have been left behind.

    • Millions have lost their jobs — and with it their pay, health insurance, and the dignity of work.


  • New unemployment claims increased again last week and nearly 1 in 5 workers (29 million Americans) are receiving unemployment assistance.

    • For 25 weeks, more workers have filed unemployment claims than any week during any previous recession.


  • It didn’t have to be this bad but as new reporting shows, Trump purposely did not take this virus seriously.

    • More than 13 million Americans are out of work

    • More than half the jobs lost haven’t come back

    • Trump is on track to be the worst jobs president in recorded history

    • More than 100,000 small businesses have closed for good


  • Trump broke his promises to rebuild American manufacturing:


  • Workers deserve a president who will put them first. Biden and Harris will invest in American manufacturing and innovation to ensure that the future is made in America.


NEWS OF THE DAY

3. Trump Attacks Fallen Soldiers and Wounded Veterans

Yesterday, Trump complained about a new DNC War Room television ad, “Sacrifice,” that blasts him for his long record of disparaging comments about America’s service members.


  • Trump’s attacks on service members and veterans are beyond disgusting — they’re un-American.


  • Trump inherited everything and sacrificed nothing, and has no respect for those who have given everything for our country.

    • Brave Americans who have sacrificed life and limb in defense of our freedoms are not “losers” or “suckers.”

    • America’s heroes deserve a president who respects their courage. Sadly, they do not have one now.

    • Trump can’t defend his alleged comments, so instead he’s attacking military leadership.


  • The Atlantic’s report has already been confirmed by numerous outlets, including Fox News. And Trump can’t hide his long history of disparaging military service and denigrating American heroes like John McCain.


  • As a military family, Joe and Jill Biden know the burden shared by those who give everything to our country. It’s why they’ve always prioritized the health and well-being of service members, veterans, and military families.


4. Six Million Coronavirus Cases While Trump Politicizes Vaccines

  • The U.S. has over 6.3 million confirmed cases and 190,000 deaths because Trump has failed to contain COVID-19.

    • Trump lied to Americans, downplayed the virus despite warnings from experts, and 6 months into this crisis still doesn’t have a plan.


  • Trump failed to keep children and families safe despite knowing the threat COVID posed to young people. Now half a million kids have been infected.

    • As early as March, Trump privately said he knew the coronavirus posed a threat to young people, but he has demanded schools reopen unsafely and publicly claims children are “virtually immune” from the disease.


  • We are just 4% of the world’s population but have nearly 25% of the world’s cases and over 20% of deaths.


  • Trump is playing politics with our lives. He is putting his reelection ahead of Americans’ safety by pushing for a vaccine before Election Day instead of following the science to ensure it’s safe and effective.

    • We cannot allow a repeat of Trump’s testing and PPE fiascos when it comes to a vaccine. The stakes are too high.

    • Dr. Fauci and other experts have called Trump’s promises of a vaccine before Election Day “unlikely” and “very remote.”


  • Joe Biden will rely on science and experts to guide his coronavirus response, including in developing a vaccine.

NEWS OF THE DAY

3. Six Million Coronavirus Cases While Trump Politicizes Vaccines

  • The U.S. has over 6.3 million confirmed cases and 190,000 deaths because Trump has failed to contain COVID-19.

    • Trump doesn’t listen to experts, doesn’t take it seriously, and doesn’t have a plan.

    • The White House has effectively admitted that its containment strategy has failed, and now is following through with Trump’s demand to “slow the testing down.”


  • Trump has failed to keep children and families safe: half a million kids have been diagnosed with COVID-19 as Trump demands schools reopen unsafely and claims children are “virtually immune” from the disease.


  • We are just 4% of the world’s population but have nearly 25% of the world’s cases and over 20% of deaths.

    • Dr. Fauci and other experts have called Trump’s promises of a vaccine before Election Day “unlikely” and “very remote.”

    • Even pharmaceutical companies have had to publicly respond to Trump’s politicization of a vaccine.


  • Joe Biden will rely on science and experts to guide his coronavirus response, including in developing a vaccine. Biden and Harris have laid out three questions his administration must answer so every American can have confidence in a safe and effective vaccine:

    • What criteria will be used to ensure a COVID-19 vaccine meets the scientific standard of safety and efficacy?

    • Who will validate that the administration’s decision to greenlight a COVID-19 vaccine is driven by science and not political motivation?

    • What is the plan to allocate and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to Americans cost-free, safely, equitably, and without politics?
