Republicans And Democrats Unite To Fight Back After Trump Calls New Hampshire A Drug Infested Den

Trump attacked the state of New Hampshire by calling it a drug invested den, and both Republicans and Democrats are fighting back.

In a leaked phone call with Mexico’s president, Trump said, “And we have the drug lords in Mexico that are knocking the hell out of our country. They are sending drugs to Chicago, Los Angeles, and to New York. Up in New Hampshire – I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den – is coming from the southern border.”

Here is the statement from Republican Gov. Chris Sununu:

Sen. Jeanne Sheehan (D):

Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) said:

Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D) said in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, and posted to her Facebook page, “No, Mr. President, you’re wrong about New Hampshire – but you have failed to help us fight the opioid crisis. We need recovery facilities NOW. Stop attacking health care and make the investments you promised.”

The really crazy thing about Trump’s statement is that he was wrong. Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire. Of course, the perpetually stuck in the 2016 election Trump may have been referring to the New Hampshire primary, but his claim that he won New Hampshire is flat out wrong.

Instead of leading a nation, Donald Trump is turning states against him one at a time.
