The Democrat party has left the building. There are currently six Democrat mayors in Minnesota who are now endorsing President Donald Trump for the 2020 election because they believe that the Democrat party has left them by moving far left and that Joe Biden has done nothing for the working class.
Those six Democrat mayors are as follows: Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich, Virginia Mayor Larry Cuffe, Ely Mayor Chuck Novak, Chisholm Mayor John Champa, Babbitt Mayor Andrea Zupancich, and Two Harbors Mayor Chris Swanson.
These are their words, not mine. The Democrat mayors penned and signed a letter explaining their position and it was posted as a PDF file on Trump’s campaign site.
Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents’ jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class. We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good paying jobs elsewhere. Today, we don’t recognize the Democratic Party. It has been moved so far to the left it can no longer claim to be advocates of the working class. The hard-working Minnesotans that built their lives and supported their families here on the Range have been abandoned by radical Democrats. We didn’t choose to leave the Democratic Party, the party left us.
Also pointed out, by Breitbart, is that President Donald Trump and his administration are often trying to reduce and lower taxes while Democrats thrive on increasing taxes.
Biden himself suggested before that he would increase taxes and consider rolling back Trump’s tax cuts.
Instead of taxing people more, we need to hire or elect people who are good at math and actually know how to manage a budget without letting their friends get expensive overpriced contracts or wasting money on programs we don’t actually need.
