Donald Trump proclaims on Cinco de Mayo: ‘I love Hispanics!’


How does Donald Trump celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee used the holiday to dine on a taco bowl and proclaim: “I love Hispanics!”

“Happy #CincoDeMayo!” Trump said in a post on his Twitter and Facebook accounts Thursday.

The post features a smiling Trump giving a thumbs up and digging his fork into a meal at the Trump Tower Grill.

“The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill,” he said in the post.

“I love Hispanics!” Trump added.

The taco bowl, however, was nowhere to be found on the Trump Tower Grill’s online menu — but a Thursday special called the “Taco fiesta!” was available at the Trump Tower Café, according to its website.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s campaign fired back at Trump’s post, citing an interview Trump gave to NBC News’ Lester Holt on Wednesday.

“ ‘I love Hispanics!’ —Trump, 52 minutes ago,” the campaign said in a post on Twitter linking to Trump’s Instagram post.

“ ‘They’re gonna be deported.’ —Trump, yesterday,” the post continued.

Trump was asked by Lester Holt on Wednesday whether he stands by his promise to deport the nation’s undocumented immigrants.

“They’re going to be deported,” Trump said. “Look we either have a country or we don’t. We have many illegals in the country and we have to get them out and go through a process, go through a system and ones who have done well and have really achieved we want to bring them back in.”
