Trump Inflicts Economic Disaster On Nevada With A Failed, Chaotic Pandemic Response


by Nevada Democrats

Following the release of depression-level unemployment figures, Nevada State Democratic Party Chair William McCurdy II released the following statement:

“Donald Trump had a chance to take this crisis seriously. Instead, he wasted time, downplayed the pandemic, and failed to take action. Now, as the virus continues to spread, Nevadans are facing an economic catastrophe unlike anything we’ve seen since the Great Depression. Trump can’t spin that reality, and Nevadans can’t afford another four years of his failed, chaotic leadership.”

BACKGROUND ON TRUMP’S FAILED CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE

Promise: "We're going to have health care that is so good and so much less expensive … I'm asking for your vote, so we can save health care for every family in your state and in this country." [Trump Campaign Rally, Las Vegas NV, 10/30/16]

Promise:  “Anybody that wants a test can get a test.” [Trump Remarks at CDC Headquarters, 3/6/20]

  • Reality: Trump’s testing “strategy” would provide tests for just 2% of Nevadans.

  • Reality: Two months after Trump’s promise on testing, Dr. Anthony Fauci says we’re still a month away.

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