CO Dems Statement on August Jobs Report

Today, the Colorado Democratic Party released the following statement in response to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) unemployment numbers, which reveals that more than 13 million Americans are still out of work:

Colorado Democratic Party Spokesman David Pourshoushtari:

“Like everything else he inherits, Donald Trump took a strong economy with 75 straight months of job growth and drove it into a ditch. Trump talks a big game, but nothing he says will change that he will go down in history as the worst jobs president on record — and nothing Trump says can spin the devastating toll his failed pandemic response has taken on workers and small businesses across Colorado.

“Working families in America and across Colorado are continuing to pay the price for Trump’s failure. Thanks to Trump, Colorado communities are facing soaring unemployment, a cratering economy, and a once in a generation public health crisis. We need leaders in the White House who will put public health ahead of politics and help our country build back better — that’s exactly why Coloradans will elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this fall.”
