“Nevada voters should know that it doesn’t matter which Democrat becomes their party’s nominee, because the big government socialist agenda will be front and center no matter who it is,” Kayleigh McEnany, the Trump campaign’s national press secretary, said in a statement.

“Under President Trump, we’re seeing the best economy in more than 50 years and we’re putting America first again. Democrats would undo all that success, kill millions of jobs, and raise taxes on top of it,” she added.

Trump and his allies have repeatedly hammered Democrats as embracing “socialist” policies as the party’s presidential contenders debate a range of progressive policies such as “Medicare for All” and the Green New Deal.
