wisdemsMADISON - President Donald Trump will officially kick off his re-election campaign Tuesday in Orlando, Florida where he will undoubtedly lie about his long record of broken promises. In Wisconsin, Trump’s attempts to “make America great” have raised taxes on the working class while enriching himself and wealthy corporations, fueled a crisis in Wisconsin’s dairy industry, and jeopardized health care access for millions of Wisconsinites.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler will offer a response to Trump’s announcement on a press call TOMORROW and make the case that Wisconsin voters will reject a second term for President Trump.

WHO: Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler

WHEN: Monday, June 17 at 10:30 AM CT
