‘Who Do You Love More, The Country Or The Hispanics’ Trump Asks At MAGA Rally

At a rally in New Mexico last night, Donald Trump made a bunch of strange and racist comments about Steve Cortes, a member of his Hispanic advisory council.

Implying that Cortes was too light-skinned to be Hispanic, Trump said, “He happens to be Hispanic, but I’ve never quite figured it out, because he looks more like a WASP than I do.”

Trump continued to put his foot in his mouth by saying that there is nobody who “loves his country more or Hispanics more” than Cortes.

Then, the President of the United States asked Cortes which he prefers more—because apparently one cannot both love America and be Hispanic at the same time.

“He says the country. I don’t know. I may have to go for the Hispanics, to be honest with you,” Trump says. “We’ve got a lot of Hispanics. We love our Hispanics. Get out and vote.”

Cortes, a tried and true Trump supporter who regularly appears on CNN (although he has not been on in a while), recently wrote an article for the Florida Daily about how Trump has earned Hispanics’ trust:

“The president’s deft management of the economy is winning him the support of the Hispanic community nationwide, so the Democrats should be terrified,” Cortes writes. “Why would we put our prosperity at risk, after all, by voting for any of the far-left ideologues pursuing the Democratic Party’s nomination, all of whom are hell-bent on reversing President Trump’s successful policies?”

I don’t know—children in cages, for one?

Folks had a lot to say about Trump’s racist comments.

“This isn’t just bad behavior or ‘unsavory rhetoric’. This is a man who RIGHT NOW is trying to end birthright citizenship, has babies in concentration camps, and whose words just inspired a racist to drive hundreds of miles to kill Hispanics back-to-school shopping at Wal-Mart!”

Trump is predictably delusional in thinking that his tactics are making him popular with Hispanic voters. A Washington Post-ABC News poll recently found that only 25 percent of Hispanics approve of Trump’s job as president—which is lower than his overall approval rating of 38 percent.
