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.
