ABC News(LAS VEGAS) — Donald Trump raised some eyebrows in the Silver State Wednesday night when he told Nevadans how to pronounce their state’s name — differently than they do.
“Heroin overdoses are surging and meth overdoses in Nevada, Nuh-VAH-da,” he told the crowd in Reno. “And you know what I said? I said when I came out here I said nobody says it the other day, has to be Nuh-VAH-da.
“And if you don’t say it correctly and it didn’t happen to me but it happened to a friend of mine he was killed.”
Generally, the state’s name is pronounced Nuh-VAD-uh.
During the rally, Trump hit Hillary Clinton on Obamacare, using her husband’s words — that it was the “craziest thing” — against her.
“The first thing we’re going to do is repeal and replace Obamacare,” Trump said. “President Clinton has come out and told the truth about Obamacare in all fairness he told the truth.”
