However, longtime political observers have said a Trump victory next year is unlikely, since registered Democrats outnumber Republicans in New Mexico and the state has not voted for a GOP presidential candidate since 2004.

The state Latino population is overwhelmingly Democratic.

On September 15, 2019, Breitbart News reported Trump's warning that Democrats are searching to "confiscate" guns.

Trump's last trip to New Mexico was met with resistance: protesters lit fires, smashed a door and threw rocks outside his Albuquerque rally in May 2016, the scene of chaos taking place in the weeks after he became the presumptive Republican nominee. U.S. representative Deb Haaland described the president as misogynistic and ego-driven, saying the Democrats will fight to make sure New Mexico stays blue.

To win in New Mexico, analysts say he'll have to win over Hispanic voters who make up a third of the electorate.

But it's an affordable bet to take for the RNC, given its relatively small population and centralized media, said Brian Sanderoff, president of Research & Polling Inc.

CBS News quoted Trump saying, "Democrats are searching to confiscate guns from law-abiding People".

Monday's rally kicked off a three-day West Coast swing for the president, who planned to travel Tuesday to California for fundraising events and return to Washington on Wednesday.

Trump won the White House in 2016 with electoral votes from traditional Republican-leaning states and some surprise Democratic-leaning ones.

She calls his visit "big", saying that "he's coming for us in New Mexico because he cares".

Near Albuquerque city centre, a few hundred Democrats gathered to hold their own rally.

Trump's efforts in New Mexico will provide a test of how well his often-harsh rhetoric about immigrants will play with Hispanic voters, who comprise almost 40% of New Mexico's electorate. Some elected leaders, including U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland, spoke. "A massive wall. We should tell them 'open borders, ' let anybody come in".

"And at the center of America's drug crisis, this is where the Hispanics know it better than anybody, people said, 'Oh, the Hispanics won't like a wall.' I said, 'I think they are going to love it, '" said Trump.

New Mexico is in the midst of an oil production boom that has boosted employment and spurred a state government spending spree from first-year Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on public education, roadway projects and tax rebates for film productions.

The Green New Deal calls for virtual elimination by 2030 of greenhouse gas emissions responsible for global warming and meeting 100% of USA power demand through renewable and zero-emission energy sources, including nuclear power.

"Thank you very much, President Trump".

Still, Trump certainly pulled a crowd at his Rio Rancho rally.
