VIDEO: Trump enchantment of New Mexico supporters, including Native voters

Native American voters from several tribes turn out to both support and protest the president at a rally in New Mexico.

In Rio Rancho, New Mexico, Donald J. Trump rallied his supporters Monday night at the Santa Ana Star Center. Residents of the Land of Enchantment were quick to respond to his appearance. Reporter Jonathan Sims was there to capture the action and filed this video report.
