RECAP: Donald Trump’s Disastrous Wednesday in Nevada


by Nevada Democrats

Las Vegas, NV – On Wednesday, Donald Trump made campaign stops in Southern and Northern Nevada that were nothing short of a disaster. In a matter of less than 12 hours, Trump managed to botch the pronunciation of ‘Nevada’ while lecturing a crowd in Reno on how to say the state’s name, offend women, scare children, and refuse to take a position on Yucca Mountain — a project that would turn Nevada into a nuclear waste dump. Everywhere he went, Trump was met by protesters (and poultry) calling him out for his refusal to release his tax returns and his offensive rhetoric.

Here are some of the lowlights from Trump’s disastrous visit:
