“President trump’s planned visit to Maine tomorrow is just one more way to divide us as the nation grapples with a deadly pandemic, record unemployment and widespread peaceful protests of police brutality and systemic racism,” said Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D) in a press release.

“We do not need the President visiting the state of Maine.  I’m please me’s coming to recognize the wonderful people who are working hard to make the swabs that make our tests so much more available in that critical work that they’re doing here – but he’s not coming here to do this,” said Pingree.  “He’s coming here to have a political rally in the second Congressional District. It’s just one more way to divide us.  If there was ever a time we needed to president who could bring us together, that could talk about these difficult issues and reassure us that we can move forward together, it’s now.  That’s not what we have,” concluded the Congresswoman’s press release.

As of today more than 109,000 Americans have died of COVID-19, 1.9 million are infected with the virus, 42 millions of Americans are out of work and peaceful protests have been held nationwide ever since the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police.
