DPNM Statement on Donald Trump’s Speech on the Economy

Albuquerque, N.M. – The Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) issued the following statement after Donald Trump delivered a speech on the economy today.

“Trump is only out for himself, and his actions contradict his rhetoric—his own businesses manufacture outside of the U.S. With the report of New Mexico being 49th in child well-being thanks to the corporate-first policies of Governor Susana Martinez, we cannot afford to risk our country’s economy on Trump’s reckless and unpredictable behavior.”

An analysis by Moody’s Mark Zandi shows that Trump’s economic plan would cost 3.5 million jobs and cause another recession.
