NM governor hopes to meet with Trump

by Evelyn Rupert  |  published on June 5, 2016

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R) said she is looking forward to a meeting with presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, little more than a month after he bashed her while campaigning in the state.

“Governor Martinez is encouraged by Mr. Trump’s commitment to protect New Mexico’s labs and bases, which are not only important to our state but also our national defense. The Governor hopes to visit with Mr. Trump in the near future to discuss this issue and others that affect New Mexicans. As she has said, this has never been about her — it’s about the issues that impact New Mexico,” the governor said in a statement.

The two have not had a positive relationship so far: While campaigning in New Mexico last month, Trump attacked the governor, telling the crowd that “she’s not doing the job.” Aides for Martinez retorted that she doesn’t care what Trump thinks about her and will focus on what he’ll do for New Mexicans.

But Trump seemed to backtrack on his remarks, telling a Santa Fe paper this week that he hopes to have her endorsement and saying that he respects her.

    She had better be for making the US great, not amnesty, not illegal aliens, not unvetted refugees, not increased visas. It she favors any of that crap or the PC administration or the rinos she is our enemy!

    Why do so many have to be dumb before they get smart – or is Martinez just following the orders of the Establishment’s Stop Trump Campaign. To late – the Citizens are finally opening their eyes and are ending 28 years of the 1% Establishment control of OUR Government with their Professional Politician Puppets. President Trump 2016 – step #1 in taking OUR Government back.

    So Trump walks back his rhetoric after his handlers tell him he is losing more and more Hispanics…wow.

    • Luke

      And evidently her handlers have told her to reach out to Trump..
      Only the working and wanting a job hispanic will be voting for Trump anyway and I doubt he has lost any of those who are on the dole or are illegal, they already vote demonrat for the freebies..

        Trust me, that is a fact about him not losing hispanic votes. The hispanics don’t like the wet backs either. They know what they represent. Can you guess why they are called “Wet Backs”? Pretty obvious, huh?

    • psychosally

      dont think he walked back anything -only trying to bring everyone together

      • Barrustio

        I see what you mean…he just has a strange way of “bringing everyone together”

    • SDofAZ

      No, bar. He is not losing any hispanic votes. Are you hispanic at all? We call em wetbacks,( illegal border crossers). Guess you are not what you say you are. Dah! By your chosen name at least.

      • Barrustio

        Yeh I know what YOU call them. My American Hispanics may not get along with illegals but we are still human enough to not denigrate anyone by their given name…but then that only applies to the civilized.
