She went from Trump hater to Trump supporter, just like that.
Jorge Ramos sat down with the Republican National Committee’s Director of Hispanic Outreach, Helen Aguirre Ferre. Since taking her position as the head of Latino outreach, Aguirre Ferre has spent several interviews walking back negative comments she’s made about Donald Trump. Unsurprisingly, that is exactly what she did in her recent interview with Ramos. During the interview, Ramos shows footage from a previous interview Aguirre Ferre gave to “Al Punto” where she went in on Trump. Not only did she say he is “uncomfortable with a strong, independent woman,” she even claimed that he was doing more damage than good for the party.
“For me, Donald Trump does not represent the Republican Party. Donald Trump wasn’t Republican until very recently. He’s been a Democrat all his life,” Aguirre Ferre previously said.
When pressed by Ramos to tell him whether or not she still agrees with that statement, she did what every other Republican has done. She attacked Hillary Clinton. She also proved that her words are malleable by praising Donald Trump on his value and respect of women because he let his daughter run the company while he campaigns. Such a different tone towards Trump in such a short amount of time.
“Jorge, like I have repeated to you, what we have seen from Trump on the level of his business, how he acts, how he behaves with women in his business,” Aguirre Ferre told Ramos. “You can see that he has highlighted the female role, and, importantly, in his business he has lifted up the role of the women in an extraordinary way to the executive level.”
When asked if she has met Donald Trump in person since being hired by the RNC she responded, “I haven’t met Donald Trump in person.”
