MANCHESTER, N.H.- President Donald Trump is making a campaign stop in New Hampshire this week. But not all in the Granite State are welcoming him with open arms.
The Democratic Party is planning a number events leading up to the Manchester rally. The party accuses the president of breaking a laundry list of promises he made in 2016.
“2016 was not merely another four year election. This was a defining moment in American history,” said President Trump when he announced his reelection bid in June.
But democratic leaders in the state continue to resist.
“These have been pretty dark days,” said Ray Buckley, New Hampshire Democratic Party chairman. “Families of New Hampshire and families of America are less safe than they were. Both economically, physically and for their future.”
The party is mobilizing this week in an effort to “expose” the broken promises on health care, women’s rights and taking the special interests.
“I think continuing those conversations, going to doors and really just to voters, talking to our neighbors. This is a way we defeat Donald Trump,” said Holly Shulman, New Hampshire Democratic Party spokesperson.
Shulman worked with President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign which she says was quite different.
“There is no evidence that they are organizing, that they are doing anything but stumping policies that will take the country backwards,” she said.
Local 22 & Local 44 News will be at Thursday at the SNUH Arena in New Hampshire. The rally kicks off at 7:00 p.m. but doors open at 4:00 p.m.
Democrats will also be holding a protest across from the arena.
