Just because Donald Trump is now the presumed Republican presidential nominee, it doesn't mean he's giving up his crazy antics, offensive comments or bizarre social media posts — no way. In fact, he managed to combine all three of those things in a Cinco de Mayo tweet aimed at winning back some of the Mexican voters he offended with his "build the wall, make them pay for it" foreign policy.
The candidate wished the Mexican community a happy Cinco by posting a photo of himself eating an entirely Americanized dish, the taco bowl, at his Trump Tower office. Even worse, he made the ridiculous claim that the best taco bowls in the country are made in his own kitchen and then capped off the tweet with a strange claim that he "loves Hispanics!"
See the tweet that's almost more insult than olive branch:
The 'love' that Trump has for Hispanics is most definitely not mutual, and many repsonded to the Tweet with disparaging words. Even assumed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, got in on the criticism:
@realDonaldTrump says: "I love Hispanic". But 87% of Latinos don't love him back and have a negative opinion of him. (Latino Decisions)— JORGE RAMOS (@jorgeramosnews) May 5, 2016
Lisa Navarrete, a spokeswoman for the left-leaning Nation Council of La Raza said that after watching the entirety of Trumps campaign this "doesn't surprise us at all." She hilariously adds, "My conclusion is either Donald Trump is completely clueless or he is the greatest troll in the history of the Internet. There are no other options."
It appears that Trump is now turning his sites on the national election, but with attempts to garner minority votes like this, the results may not be so heavily in his favor.
