Democrats blast Trump prior to his Canfield Fair visit

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

As soon as Donald Trump's visit to the Canfield Fair was confirmed, local democrats scheduled a news conference at their tent on the fairgrounds.

The democrats brought in Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO. The labor leader used Labor Day to again hammer Trump's record on outsourcing jobs, and saying the GOP nominee is not a friend of working class families.

"When people hear the facts, that he wants to lower wages and he thinks right work is a good thing,  they'll understand that he's a fraud and he's out for Donald Trump," said Trumka.
 
Several local democratic office holders also were on hand, including Ohio Senate Minority Leader Joe Schiavoni, who says Trumps own business record contradicts his promises. 

"Actions speak louder than words. And when you look at the actions of Donald Trump it speaks louder that the words that he'll say at this fair today," Schiavoni said. 

 A group of Trump supporters carrying sings also showed up to counter the democrats event.  They say they believe Trump is gaining support because Americans want something new.

"I think the American people are tired of the democrats and they're ready for something new.   I think Trump is for the people and here at the Canfield Fair there is a lot of support for Trump," said Trump supporter Mike Young.  But the AFL-CIO leader says Trump has demonstrated that working people are not his priority.

"He'll make it harder for American families to make ends meet and he'll tear our country apart," Trumka said.  By the time the democrats news conference ended, the crowd was already building around the GOP tent in anticipation of Trump's arrival.
