In a joint statement issued on Wednesday, Aug. 14, more than 20 Democratic contenders reunited to attack President Donald Trump ahead of his New Hampshire, according to the Hill.
“Donald Trump’s presidency has been defined by broken promises, hateful rhetoric, and choosing to side with lobbyist and the top 1 percent at the expense of everyone else. This week, he comes to New Hampshire we expect more of the same,” the statement, which includes all of the top-tier Democratic hopefuls, reads.
Kayleigh McEnany, national press secretary for Trump 2020 campaign, fired back to the Democrats’ claims, saying, “These Democrats are living in a fact-free delusional alternate reality. The facts are that New Hampshire has added 19,700 jobs since Donald Trump became president, reversing the loss of 3,400 manufacturing jobs under Obama and adding 1,700 instead.”
“The economy has never been hotter, and Democrats—from Biden to Bernie—would take health care away from 815,300 New Hampshire voters. New Hampshire simply cannot afford forgoing the prosperity in the Trump economy for the radical, job-killing proposals of delusional Democrats,” she wrote to the Hill.
President Trump on Thursday heads to New Hampshire for a rally, where his supporters have been camping for 36 hours to attend the event, McEnany tweeted.

Democratic candidates have been very vocal against the president, especially after the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, with some saying the president is a white supremacist or he is “fanning the flames of white supremacy.”
But accusing the president of being racist does not appear to be a new tactic for Democrats.
Hillary Clinton in her campaign in Nevada in 2016, was giving the same rhetoric, “He’s taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over one of America’s two major political parties. Trump is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters. It’s a disturbing preview of what kind of president he’d be.”
And 75 days later, Donald Trump would be president-elect.
Despite recent accusations from his rivals, Civitas showed on Wednesday that President Trump is leading top Democratic 2020 contenders in North Carolina, according to the Breitbart.
