The Lincoln Project: Historic

The following is taken from The Lincoln Project press release:

July 5, 2020 – The Lincoln Project today released their latest ad, “Historic”, highlighting the staggering levels of unemployment amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, plaguing both its citizens as well as the U.S. economy.

This pain of lost employment cuts through gender and race—with men and women, African Americans and Hispanics alike, all experiencing significant job loss.

Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project said, “Every American right now is asking themselves, ‘Am I better off than I was four years ago?’ With 8 million fewer Americans working today than when Donald Trump first took office, we know the answer.”

“Millions of hardworking Americans are facing looming evictions, past due bills, and an uncertain job market, while the President continues to boast about the NASDAQ on Twitter. He’s completely out of touch.” Galen continued.

With every other wealthy nation on Earth reopening and having contained this virus, it’s obvious Donald Trump completely mishandled our response to the pandemic. He politicized masks, went out of his way to downplay the seriousness of the virus, likening it to the flu. He even called it a hoax.

How many people have died due to his negligence? How many jobs and small businesses are never coming back because of his lack of leadership?

And now, coronavirus cases are on the rise, stalling state re-openings, and we continue to have an Executive branch that’s failed to deliver a clear plan of action. So, when the country is asking if we can afford four more years of Donald Trump, the answer is clear: no.

The Lincoln Project: Rushmore

From the official YouTube description: Trump’s legacy is his countless failures, and the damage he’s done to America and its people. Our Founding Fathers look down at him with disdain.

The following comes from The Lincoln Project’s official press release for “Rushmore”:

July 2, 2020 – The latest ad released by The Lincoln Project, “Rushmore,” contrasts the American leaders enshrined on South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore and our current President, ahead of Trump’s planned visit to the monument this Fourth of July weekend.

“Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt all deeply understood the revered responsibility of the Presidency, and each played a pivotal role in preserving our Republic. Donald Trump, in contrast, shirks his oath of office, constantly shifts blame to disguise his incompetence, and uses his position to further divide the American people,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project.

As the nation reckons with a complicated legacy regarding historical monuments, Trump need not worry that any of his will be sullied in the future. He’s already irreparably tarnished his legacy and will only be remembered for his countless failures, and the damage he’s done to America and its people.

The Lincoln Project: Which Side of History

The following comes from the official press release from The Lincoln Project:

July 1, 2020 – The Lincoln Project’s latest video, “Which Side of History,” released today, commends Mississippi for taking a historic step in lowering their state flag, the last to feature the Confederate emblem, and beginning the process of reconciling our country’s painful past, while lamenting President Trump for continuing to sow hate and division, this time tweeting out a video of alleged supporters in Florida yelling, “White Power!”

Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project said, “This week, Mississippi chose the right side of history. Unfortunately, it’s not a choice our problematic President cares to make. It’s more important to Trump to peddle his deplorable racist agenda — stoking division, fear, and chaos — rather than to help our country heal.”

“If the last three and half years weren’t reason enough, Trump has succeeded in making it impossible for any true, patriotic Republican or Independent to support anyone but Joe Biden this November. The Lincoln Project endorses Biden, and is confident he will restore integrity and character to the office of the Presidency once again,” said Galen.
