ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Donald Trump made some new promises to New Mexicans at his rally in Albuquerque Sunday night.

Those big promises came just nine days before the election in a state that has voted Democrat in recent Presidential elections. Trump made promises of lower taxes, safety and security and to unleash New Mexico’s “vast resources to bring jobs and higher wages to the state.”

During his speech Trump touched on the rising costs of health insurance, saying that New Mexico is one of the states hit the hardest by Obamacare. Trump announced he will lower the cost and make it more affordable to families.

Trump also promises massive tax cuts for New Mexico families and his plan to make the state rich by bringing jobs into what he said has already lost 40 percent of its manufacturing jobs.

He then went on to say that if New Mexico wants to be a rich state, it has to be a safe state, citing numbers of a 53 percent increase in crime from last year in Albuquerque. Trump attributed those numbers to drugs pouring in from across the border.

“We’re going to stop that. We’re going to build a wall, don’t worry about it,” said Trump. “And Mexico’s going to pay for the wall.”

Trump also touched on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, saying the FBI just released another 650,000 emails were found. Trump asked the crowd how much time anyone has to send that many emails.

Compared to Trump’s rally in May, Sunday’s rally was much more peaceful, with only one instance of protesters having to be removed from the crowd.
