Louisiana Democrats Statement on LAGOP Ad and Chaos in Trump’s America

BATON ROUGE, LA – After the Louisiana Republican Party released an ad claiming that we aren’t safe in a Democratic-led America – including videos of actions currently taking place in a Trump-led America – Sen. Karen Carter Petreson, Chair of the Louisiana Democratic Party released the following statement: 

“Trump is fanning the flames of hate and division, defending accused murderers, and Republicans are trying to blame the chaos that ensues on his political opponents — despite the fact that, last we checked, he is currently the president. Every clip the LAGOP included in their latest ad comes straight from scenes in Trump’s America. They can’t change that fact, which is why they’ve resorted to false attacks. Vice President Biden has repeatedly condemned violence and called for an end to the chaos and hate that Trump is fanning. He’s who we need as president to bring our country together and build a better future for all.”

The LAGOP says that “we won’t be safe in a Democrat America,” but look at Trump’s America:

  • Trump has no plan to contain COVID, which has infected more than 6 million Americans and kills thousands a week.
  • Trump has demanded schools reopen unsafely, endangering kids, teachers, and their families.
  • Trump wrecked the economy, with more than 1 in 10 workers unemployed and tens of millions going hungry.
  • Trump is encouraging chaos, rather than calming tensions, with Kellyanne Conway even cheering on more violence and chaos because she thinks it’ll help Trump politically.
