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

  • Total state coronavirus cases: 266,136; deaths: 4245.
  • Trump has held six in person rallies with crowds as large as 23,000 practicing little to no social distancing and few masks since June in the state.
  • The state unemployment rate is 7.3 percent, compared to 4.9 percent when Trump took office.
  • 295,800 fewer North Carolinians were employed in September compared with February — a 6.4 percent decline.
  • 119,000 more North Carolinians are uninsured now than when Trump took office.
  • 503,000 North Carolinians would lose their health coverage and 4.2 million with preexisting conditions would have protections stripped away if the Trump backed lawsuit to repeal the ACA succeeds.
