Meet Marco Gutierrez, the founder of Latinos for Trump. He thinks Mexican culture is “very dominant” in the U.S., which is “causing problems.”

Marco Gutierrez, the founder of Latinos for Trump, was on MSNBC when he made one of the most nonsensical claims of this presidential campaign. During an interview on “All In With Chris Hayes,” Gutierrez was arguing the importance of Donald Trump’s immigration plan when the Mexican-born Trump surrogate started to go a little haywire. Rather than using statistics, Gutierrez argued that if Trump loses the presidential race, the U.S. will be plagued with “taco trucks on every corner.” TACO TRUCKS ON EVERY CORNER.
“My culture is a very dominant culture,” Gutierrez told Joy Reid. “It is imposing, and it’s causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”
Of course, in the 21st century, this comment created its own hashtag, #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner. What Gutierrez thought was a nightmare scenario actually sounded like a dream come true to lots of people.

Gutierrez may have inadvertently given Hillary Clinton the push she needs to win the presidency.

To clarify, if Trump loses we get taco trucks on every corner? *casts vote for more taco trucks*
How can anyone consider more taco trucks to be a bad thing?

Clearly, Gutierrez was using the taco trucks as an analogy about how undocumented immigrants are “invading” the country.
If Gutierrez wanted to scare people into voting for Trump, he definitely missed the mark.

But, then again, what do you expect from the Mexican-born founder of Latinos for Trump?
