New Hampshire Fires Back
August 4, 2017
Yesterday it was revealed that Donald Trump insulted and disparaged the state of New Hampshire saying, “I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den,” in a phone call to the president of Mexico. Granite Staters did not take kindly to Trump’s harsh words and quickly turned them back on him.
“Donald Trump calling the state of New Hampshire a ‘drug-infested den’ is nothing short of disgusting and makes clear that he looks at the opioid epidemic as a political crutch, rather than as a national crisis affecting millions across the country. Perhaps instead of insulting the men and women battling these life threatening addictions, Trump should focus on developing policies that will help Americans overcome this epidemic. Trump’s comments are beneath the decency and dignity of the Office of the President and Granite Staters will not forget the president’s words about their home state,” said DNC Northeast Press Secretary Elizabeth Renda.
