Joe Sestak have not signed the statement, based on the email.

“Donald Trump’s presidency has been defined by broken promises, hateful rhetoric, and choosing to side with lobbyists and the top 1 percent at the expense of everyone else. This week, when he comes to New Hampshire we expect more of the same,” the statement reads. 

“We believe that all Granite Staters should have access to affordable health care, that children shouldn’t fear for their lives when they go to school, and that the economy should work for everyone - not just those at the very top.”

Kayleigh McEnany, Trump's national press secretary, pushed back on the claims made by the Democratic staffers.

"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 healthcare 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," McEnany said in an emailed statement.

Trump will hold a rally in New Hampshire on Thursday as he continues his reelection campaign.
