Residents are shocked and hurt by the message in the letter, regardless of their political affinity.
A tenant named Cindy Marquez told 9News that her family has lived in the park for 20 years and this is the first time something like this has happened around an election. She ended up translating the letter for her Spanish-speaking parents and notifying her neighbors, as it had been slow to circulate despite being dated October 19th.
“I mean, we can’t control how this whole election goes,” said Marquez to reporters. “We can’t control what everyone else does, you know? We can’t control the results.”
She continued, “I mean everybody was pretty shocked, honestly. 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?”

A trailer park in Fort Morgan, Colorado, has become the scene of yet more election coercion on behalf of Donald Trump. Other reports of employers threatening people’s jobs if Joe Biden should be elected are horrifying enough. In this situation, the landlords of the trailer park are reportedly threatening to double the rents of residents should Trump lose the election.
