"The Democratic Party has long been committed to ensuring that all Americans, especially the most most vulnerable, have access to housing that is safe, decent, and affordable," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairwoman Martha Laning.
"Our party is continuing that work to this day because we want every American, regardless of income, to have a roof over their head for a fair chance to get ahead," she continued. "You shouldn't have to be a millionaire to buy a home, save for the future, and give your children better than you had."

"We can't risk having someone in the White House who would dare bet against the American people for their own personal gain," concludes Laning. "Donald Trump clearly does not have the best interest of the American people at heart and he does not have the temperament or stability to be President of the United States."
"Donald Trump is a risk we cannot take," she said.
