The Democrats need Latino’s to break hard towards them if they have any chance of beating Trump in 2020.
Trump’s numbers among this important voting block have been remarkably steady – around 40% in Texas and not much lower nationwide.
With unemployment at historic lows and wages increasing, expect Trump’s numbers to keep rising among Hispanics.
From Breitbart: Chants of “build the wall” broke out at Tuesday’s rollout of the Donald J. Trump for President Latino Coalition event in Miami, Florida.
Vice President Mike Pence was headlining the launch of the Trump 2020 presidential campaign event when chanting broke out among what was described by New York Times Miami Bureau Chief Patricia Mazzei as a largely Cuban/Venezuelan/Nicaraguan American crowd, “Build the wall.”
“We need four more years for President Donald Trump,” Pence said sparking the crowd to begin chanting those same words.
It’s notable that Pence did this event in Miami on Tuesday because on Wednesday and Thursday in the same city the Democrat candidates for president will have their first debates in the same city.
In addition to NBC and MSNBC hosting the debates, the Spanish language Telemundo is also co-hosting these first face offs among Democrats. Pence’s rollout of the Latino coalition for Trump comes as a prebuttal of sorts to the coming Democrat onslaught on the president in Miami later this week.
“Chants of ‘Build the wall’ have broken out at Latinos for a trump event in Miami as Pence talks about border security,” Mazzei described.
“Chants of ‘Build that wall’ erupt at Pence’s ‘Latinos for Trump’ event. VP says “in the midst of democrat obstruction…President Trump has taken decisive action to end the crisis at our southern border & we are securing our border.” Touts 400m of wall finished by next year,” said Associated Press reporter Alexandra Jaffe.
