Junior Trump Staffer Enters NH-01 Race Despite Granite Staters’ Clear Rejection of Trump Agenda
MANCHESTER, NH – Former Trump White House Communications staffer Karoline Leavitt announced her run for Congress today, lauding so-called progress made under the Trump Administration and promising a return to the anti-democratic values of the disgraced former President. Granite State Progress Executive Director Zandra Rice Hawkins released the following statement:
“Granite Staters very clearly rejected the Trump agenda last year, but former Trump staffer Karoline Leavitt is sadly still proud of her role in the trainwreck that was the Trump era. It’s disturbing that Leavitt continues to tout an administration that peddled lies and disinformation as we witnessed the death of 400,000 Americans and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The Trump Administration’s legacy is one that emboldened white supremacists and instigated a deadly insurrection on our nation’s capital through vicious, hate-filled rhetoric and disinformation, in addition to encouraging foreign nations to interfere in our elections. New Hampshire is still dealing with the rise of white nationalism spurred by the Trump Administration, and we don’t need more racist dog whistles from the likes of Karoline Leavitt.”
