Donald Trump, Junior is in Duluth later this afternoon (5pm) on the campaign trail for his father ahead of the November election. State DFL Chair Ken Martin today said the visit is “an attempt to distract from the epic failure in responding to coronavirus that’s infected over 80,000 Minnesotans and left thousands more out of work.” State GOP Chair Jennifer Carnahan countered that Martin “pushes and promotes and blames Republicans and their president and anyone with an “R” after their names for COVID-19 which is wrong.” Martin said it’s “outrageous that a guy who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth like Donald Trump Junior would come to northeastern Minnesota. What would Donald Trump Junior know bout hard work? He hasn’t worked an honest day in his life.” To which Carnahan responded, “with all due respect, Congressmen Dean Phillips was also born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but you don’t see Republicans going around condemning him or putting him down because of the family he was born into.” Trump Junior is hosting a “Make America Great Again” campaign rally at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. A maximum of 250 people will be allowed to attend the rally, due to COVID-19. At a stop this morning in Prior Lake, Jill Biden, campaigning on behalf of her husband Joe, told reporters “we absolutely can win Minnesota and I looked at the polls this morning, it’s looking good, but we’re not taking any vote for granted.” President Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump visits the state tomorrow.
