In response to Donald’s Trump tweet about Maine’s lobster industry on the eve of the election, Maine Democratic Party Executive Director Lisa Roberts released the following statement:

“Mainers aren’t fooled by Trump’s pandering to our hardworking lobstermen and women. Four years ago, Trump promised the greatest trade deals in American history, but all we got was a failed trade war with China that caused Maine’s lobster industry to crater. Now, he’s trying to brush aside the extensive damage his disastrous trade policies have inflicted, but his attempts are too little, too late to clean up the mess he made. Our lobstermen and women won’t forget who’s responsible for throwing their industry overboard.”
