NV Dems Statement on Hillary Clinton’s Reno Speech Hitting Trump’s Divisive “Alt-Right” Candidacy

“Shame on Donald Trump and extremists like Congressman Heck, Congressman Hardy and Danny Tarkanian who continue to support his racist campaign.”

Las Vegas, NVNevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange released the following statement today following Hillary Clinton’s speech in Reno on Donald Trump fueling the conservative fringe hate movement:

“Hillary Clinton is exactly right: from day one, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. The man who led the baseless ‘birther’ attacks against President Obama has spent his time on the campaign trail demonizing immigrants, fear-mongering about Muslim Americans, insulting the African American community, offering dog whistles to white supremacists, and refusing to condemn his anti-Semitic supporters. Shame on Donald Trump and extremists like Congressman Heck, Congressman Hardy and Danny Tarkanian who continue to support his racist campaign. At its core, our state celebrates diversity and inclusion. Trump’s mainstreaming of hate groups threatens the fabric of our democracy, and Nevada voters will reject Trump’s divisive candidacy at the ballot box in November.”
