Trump’s failing pandemic response continues to put Iowa health & jobs at risk

  • Total state coronavirus cases: 125,722; deaths: 1,714.
  • Trump held one in person rally with a crowd as large as 3,000 practicing little to no social distancing and few masks since June in the state.
  • The state unemployment rate is 4.7 percent, compared to 3.4 percent when Trump took office.
  • 81,800 fewer Iowa residents were employed in September compared with February — a 5.2 percent decline.
  • 24,000 more Iowa residents are uninsured now than when Trump took office.
  • 187,000 Iowa residents would lose their health coverage and 1.3 million with preexisting conditions would have protections stripped away if the Trump backed lawsuit to repeal the ACA succeeds.
