Donald Trump Jr. visits Wausau Submitted: 09/15/2020
WAUSUA - President Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr. paid a visit to the Stoney Creek Hotel in Rothschild on Tuesday.

His speech promoted his father and his campaign, while also criticizing Democrats, such as presidential nominee Joe Biden.

The rally followed CDC suggested guidelines by social distancing attendees, but more than half did not wear masks. During the rally, Trump Jr. did not speak about the current state of the pandemic, other than pushing for states to reopen their businesses and restart their economy.

Additionally he pushed that the 2020 election will not be based on experience not politics.

"Let's talk about brass taxes, about the economy. Joe Biden is running to the middle of America and he's talking to middle Americans, blue-collar Americans, on what he's going to do to fix things," Donald Trump Jr., said. In all fairness there is not a single person in American politics who has done more damage and destruction to blue color jobs than Joe Biden,"

In an email to WJFW, the Biden campaign refuted Trump's Jr. statement, saying Joe Biden is confident in his policies on how to fight the increasing number of COVID-19 cases as well as bringing jobs back to Wisconsin.

"Donald Trump Jr.'s trip today does nothing to change the fact that Donald Trump misled the American people about the COVID-19 pandemic and now, thousands of Wisconsin families are unemployed and small businesses are struggling to recover. Joe Biden has the experience to beat the virus and the vision to build our economy back better -- cracking down on corporations that ship jobs overseas, and investing in good-paying Wisconsin manufacturing jobs."

President Donald Trump will visit Mosinee on Thursday.
