Trump Visit Highlights GOP Favoritism for Elite Over Working Families

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. –  Instead of using his visit to meet with average South Dakotans to hear their concerns, President Donald Trump is instead attending a high-dollar fundraiser on behalf of Rep. Kristi Noem. The SDDP released the following statement from Executive Director Sam Parkinson responding to the President’s visit:

“The fact that President Trump is using his time in South Dakota to raise money from wealthy donors at an event very few South Dakotans can afford, instead of meeting with working families to hear their concerns about tariffs, healthcare, and government corruption is incredibly revealing about his – and the Republican Party’s – priorities. While President Trump’s time in office has been great for the wealthy donors attending this fundraiser, it has been a disaster for middle-class South Dakotans. While the Republican Party continues to cater to the interests of those at the top, at the expense of everyone else, Democrats will continue working for an economy that works for all South Dakotans.”

Here’s a look at some of the ways Trump/Republican policies are hurting South Dakotans:
