The Texas AFL-CIO issued the following statement regarding Trump's visit to Texas:

“Donald Trump spent four years as President bringing out the worst in America. Now, he brings his circus of violence, con-men, and wanna-be dictators to the Texas-Mexico border for a final victory lap. Trump slandered immigrants, heartlessly separated families, and cost our nation lives and jobs by completely failing to meet the challenge of the pandemic. Trump’s capstone effort to overturn the results of his failed reelection would have ended American democracy as we know it.

The Texas labor movement condemns yesterday’s outright assault on our democracy.
