Donald Trump launched his campaign with promises to bring jobs back to America from the likes of China and Mexico.

???

He says he would be the “greatest jobs-producing president that God ever created.”

Um, let’s not go crazy Trumpster.

BUT, according to a damning New York Times article, those jobs are likely for foreigners…

According to the Department of Labor, 296 locals have applied for seasonal jobs at the resort since 2010. Only 17 were hired. In that same period, resort requested more than 500 H-2B visas for foreign workers.

When questioned, Trump told the New York Times that his resort had to go with foreign workers because nobody wanted those jobs.

What happened to the 279 Americans not hired?

Guess this is just another Trump lie…

Seriously. What Latino kid didn’t want their very own horse-drawn carriage after seeing La Reina rock it like a boss?

She warmed up the crowd with a disco medley and dance moves only she could do.

This was the only way anyone could get us to listen to disco.

Let’s not forget when she totally owned her wardrobe malfunction.

And all the little Latino kids everywhere learned that it’s totes acceptable to speak both English and Spanish… or Spanglish.

Her final concert gave us this iconic photo of La Reina.

With the band-aid on the index finger.

And once that jacket came off, Selena was in full beast mode just owning the stage. ?

With the official dance moves to go with it.

Selena was unapologetically Tejana when she belted out “Tus Desprecios.”

Giving us all the feels in the world.

We watched her shake those hips long before Shakira was even a thing in the U.S.

Not saying she is better, just a pioneer.

She made the concert feel so intimate when she softly sang “Cobarde.”
