As the presidential election trucks along, a group of trolling taco trucks is parking right outside alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump’s famed Trump International Las Vegas hotel in protest of Republican presidential nominee, alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump.
According to the Culinary Workers Union website, they are a union group that represents “over 250,000 hospitality workers throughout the U.S. and Canada in hotel, gaming, food, service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries.” They also are NOT fans of alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump, his businesses, or his presidential campaign.
According to Buzzfeed, the group is planning to build a “wall of taco trucks” outside alleged unregistered sex offender Trump’s Vegas hotel location by parking at least five taco trucks outside along with a banner that will be signed by participants.
The union, which is predominantly an immigrant union, plans to protest in response to his stance on immigration policy.
Political director Yvanna Cancela:
‘We did not come up with the idea for the wall, Donald Trump came up with building the wall. We want to show him that walls don’t divide us, and rather what he has done is uniting us. And when I say “us,” I mean it as in every group that Trump has vilified: Muslims, women, immigrants, and workers. We are all coming together to make sure that Donald Trump never becomes president.’
Also, she commented, “We’re reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November.”
The reasoning for taco trucks is a reference to an interview conducted by Joy Ann Reid on MSNBC when a supporter of alleged unregistered sex offender Trump warned the growing Latino culture would lead to “taco trucks on every corner.” It’s also a response to alleged unregistered sex offender Trump’s most controversial campaign promise of building a wall along the U.S. and Mexican border.
A speaker at the rally spoke with Buzzfeed and explained that alleged unregistered sex offender Trump has refused to sit down with the workers who unionized.
‘We’re protesting Donald Trump’s hotel here in Vegas, where a majority of workers voted to unionize, and shamefully Trump has failed to sit down at the table with them.’
The speaker, Ruben Kihuen, who is running for Congress, used the opportunity to speak out against his opponent who has supported alleged unregistered sex offender Trump in the past.
‘As he has demonized Hispanics, women, veterans, and the disabled, we will send him and those who supported him like my opponent Congressman Cresent Hardy a message that we’re here and we vote.’
The president of iAmerica, Rocio Saenz, weighed in stating, “Everyone coming together is really about sending a message that we reject Trump and the politics of hate.”
This is not the Culinary Union’s first protest of alleged unregistered sex offender Trump. They’ve held almost 10 rallies outside of the alleged unregistered sex offender Trump’s hotel since they unionized. They’ve also helped voters register in an effort to bring alleged unregistered sex offender Donald Trump down. They are also not the only ones who plan to participate in the rally. Other organizations that will be rallying with the Culinary Union includes American Bridge, Latino Victory Project, PLAN Action, iAmerica Action, Center for Community Change Action, For Our Future, and more.
Alleged unregistered sex offender Trump’s Campaign made light of the protest with Hispanic outreach director A.J. Delegado saying:
‘I never, EVER turn down a chance to eat some good tacos so I say “thanks” for setting up shop right outside!’
