Donald Trump has never had broad appeal among the Hispanic community. Right from the start of his presidential campaign, he came out guns blazing, calling Mexicans rapists and thieves, and has since continued his series of tone-deaf comments about Hispanic culture, seemingly unfazed by — or unaware of — how they come off.
Despite his unpopularity, Trump has a select few supporters in the Hispanic community, among them Marco Gutierrez, who founded the group Latinos for Trump. On Thursday night, Gutierrez went on MSNBC to defend his candidate to host Joy Reid, warning Americans of the supposed threat Hispanic culture poses.
My culture is a very dominant culture, and it's imposing and it's causing problems. If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks on every corner.
Gutierrez's choice to warn the public of the horrors of (delicious) taco trucks springing up in neighborhoods confused Reid, as well as many viewers.
Though Gutierrez clearly meant the remark as a cautionary tale about Hispanic culture, many people took to Twitter to express their support for #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner. The resulting chuckle-worthy tweets turned a crude warning into a celebration of what is arguably America's favorite dish (next to pizza).
