It only took 30 seconds for this San Jose man to break down why Trump’s meeting with Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, won’t earn him any approval points from the Latino community.
Although Trump’s meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is a move to show Trump’s base that he’s “getting things done,” a man talking to KRON4 News explained that, to him, Trump’s meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto reeks of pandering. “That’s like saying [Mexico’s president] is my homie right here. And we’re cool cause he’s my homie… so we’re all cool, right?”
Nope not cool.
The man added that Mexico’s President is “one of the most hated presidents in the history of Mexico.” And that might be an understatement. President Nieto currently holds a record low 23 percent approval rating, and is almost as unpopular with Mexicans as Donald Trump, who has a 22% approval rating with Latino voters. Yeah, Donald Trump, who accused Mexican citizens of being rapists and criminals, is only a little more hated than the person who actually leads Mexico.
If Trump really wants to get in with Latinos, the San Jose citizen had a better solution, like going to “someone’s abuelita’s house to go make some food, take the trash out, take the dog for a walk.” Either way, it’ll be interesting to see EPN’s approval ratings after the meeting.
