Eric Trump campaigns for his father in Maine

The son of President Donald Trump spoke to supporters at an event in Saco Thursday.At the Camp Ellis Pier, Eric Trump talked about how the Trump administration is now helping fishermen, some hurt by China’s cutting imports of lobster in response to Trump trade tariffs. But Trump was quick to attack Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and the Democrats. “These are people who’ve never accomplished anything in their lives. You have Biden, who has been a politician for 47 years, the guy has never once signed a paycheck, he’s never created a job,” Trump said. The president’s 36-year-old son criticized certain protesters and appealed to the crowd’s support of Second Amendment rights. “It’s not just the war on enforcement right now from the radical left, it’s a war on Christianity, it’s the war on religion, it’s a war on family values,” Trump said. “The same people that want to get rid of all law enforcement also want to take away your guns.” After the rally, WMTW News 8 asked Trump about a new statewide Quinnipiac University poll showing two-thirds of Mainers disapprove of the president’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. “My father’s done a great job with coronavirus. You see the economy, the economy is roaring back. The world’s coming back, 10.4 million new jobs in the past 90 days.” Trump said. “Here’s what I can tell you: I have been in the state a couple hours now; the love is unbelievable.” The chair of the Maine Democratic Party said the president cannot run from his record. “Donald Trump four years ago made us a lot of promises,” said Kathleen Marra. “He promised that we’d have cheaper, better health care, he promised better trade deals. He promised he’d defend America’s working class, and in four years broken all of those promises.”Donald Trump won the state’s 2nd Congressional District in 2016. Eric Trump told WMTW News 8 the campaign is aiming to win the whole state this November, not just the northern part. But that Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday shows Biden leading Trump in Maine 59% to 38%
