The letter, sent to tenants of the trailer park in Fort Morgan, said their rent would not be raised for at least two years if Donald Trump is re-elected, KUSA-TV reported.

Impatient Democrats want Biden to do more in Texas

  Impatient Democrats want Biden to do more in Texas AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The whispers about Texas are picking up again. Polls are unusually tight. Political money is piling up. Millions of new voters are on the rolls, and Jill Biden flew in this week for an 800-mile campaign swing that stretched from El Paso to Houston. Taken together, all signs point toward November's election being the closest in America's biggest red state in decades. But that is no high bar given a long trail of blowouts. And with early voting already underway, the surprise of Democrat Joe Biden appearing viable in Texas so late in the game is making some party leaders and supporters impatient for the former vice president to go all in.

The landlord started sending letters to the tenants , but decided enough was enough when he received no reply, and decided to visit the property on Wednesday. 'When I finally got into the house, I knew they hadn't been there for a while,' he said .

Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden , to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to e-mails obtained by The Post.

According to KUSA-TV, the letter concerned a number of residents, who called it a kind of voter suppression and said they feared they would be forced to move based on something that was out of their control.

Ok Colorado Freedom Riders... There is a violation in our own backyard and Voter Suppression comes in all forms......

"TO ALL TENANTS: Please understand IF Joe Biden is elected as our next President, everything you do and have to pay for will change completely," the letter, dated October 19, said.

"Everything will be increased. Like paying ALOT (sic) more in taxes, utilities, gasoline, groceries, new permits, fees and regulations...everything! This also means YOUR RENT will be increased to cover these expenses. Most likely, rent would DOUBLE in price!

Mr Pence said : " Joe Biden would double down on the very policies that are leading to unsafe streets and violence in America's cities." Earlier on Wednesday, Mr Trump said he would send federal law enforcement to Kenosha by agreement with the state's governor.

It added: "Voting is your choice and we are not telling you how to vote. We are just informing our tenants what WE will do according to the election results. If Trump wins, we all win. If Biden wins, we all lose. VOTE on November 3, 2020."

Bernie Pagel, the person who signed the letter, has been contacted for comment.

Cindy Marquez told KUSA-TV that she and her family have lived in the trailer park for 20 years. After receiving the letter, Marquez said she spoke to neighbors, who were "pretty shocked."

They are concerned that if rent doubles, they may be forced to move, she said. Marquez said her family is living pay check to pay check and are barely making ends meet as it is.

"I mean, we can't control how this whole election goes," she told the station. "It was mainly hurtful, you know? How could someone say something like that or basically threaten us according to something that we can't control?"
