Trump has been busy the past several weeks before opening day. He has met with tech industry leaders, football heroes, Mitt Romney, Michele Obama, and even Kanye West. However, he has not met with a single Hispanics leader.
Trump’s decision to meet with Kanye West before Hispanic leaders is very indicative. During the election, Trump viciously berated the Hispanic population with insults. Trump called Hispanics “rapists” and accused them of bringing drugs and crime into the America.
After all, Trump’s entire presidency hinges on his ability to build this massive wall between America and Mexico (to keep all of them Mexicans out!). Trump also promised his supporters that he would deport millions of undocumented workers.
“It is unacceptable that he has yet to build a relationship with Latino and Muslim communities that he has targeted the most throughout his campaign,” said Hector Sanchez, the chairman of the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda. “Communities that are now suffering because of the things he said.”
“We have always had Democratic and Republican presidents speak to us. Him not speaking to the Latino community is dividing this country,” Wilkes said.
Another anti-Hispanic aspect of Donald Trump’s presidency, is that he could be the first president in 24 years not to have a single Hispanic in his Cabinet.
If we can deduce from the disgusting and racist comments that Trump made about Latinos during the election, as well as his ignorance of the entire Hispanic population, Hispanics should certainly be scared about what a Trump presidency will mean for them.
Trump has expressed his desire to split up homes, sending all illegal aliens back to where they came from.
The party is over. Time to take cover.
