Ohio Dem shreds Trump’s ‘insane’ manufacturing plans: ‘He wants to get back to the horse and buggy’

Published

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) ripped into Donald TRump’s economic policies saying that they are devastating his constituents who work in the manufacturing sector in northeast Ohio.

Addressing the recently announced auto plant closures, Ryan complained to MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski that Trump’s tariffs and erratic intrusions while trying to figure out how to handle the U.S. economy are “insane.”

“Let me just say it’s brutal for a community like ours,” the Ohio Democrat explained. “We lost, you know, tens of thousands of steel jobs and now we’re losing General Motors. We used to be able to say, at least we have General Motors — now we’re losing that.”

“You’ve got to keep northeast Ohio in mind, they play by the rules, go to their little league and churches, they do everything right,” the exasperated Ryan continued.

Saying the Trump’s economic advisers are trying to take America back to the “horse and buggy” era, Ryan slammed them for turning their backs on workers.

“Where’s the social contract between the workers and the government?” he asked. “There’s always the hammer, they’re going to lose their pensions and jobs. I mean how much longer are we going to do this to where the worker don’t matter? I hope this is a real wakeup call for us to say workers — white, brown, black, gay, straight — working-class people have got to come together because it’s becoming impossible for them to keep their noses above water.”

Republicans seeking to keep control of the United States Senate were harshly criticized by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for failing to remove President Donald Trump from office during impeachment.

"For four years now, as both a candidate and president, Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked America’s voting system, falsely claiming voter fraud any time it suited his needs. In a new low, last week he threatened the federal funding of two states over their reasonable moves to facilitate mail-in voting," the newspaper noted in an editorial published online on Memorial Day. "What does it say that the head of the world’s leading democracy is so intent on undermining that democracy?"

On Monday, during his observance of Memorial Day, former Vice President Joe Biden donned a face mask in accordance with CDC guidelines — a contrast with President Donald Trump, who has frequently refused to wear a mask even in some places that require them.

But Fox News senior analyst Brit Hume went out of his way to mock how Biden looked wearing it.
