This Mexican Construction Worker Proudly Displayed A Mexican Flag On Trump’s New Tower

“There’s a little present for Mr. Trump so that every time you judge us you can think who is building your towers? We are.”

Diego Reyna is a construction worker in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Reyna is one of the people working to build Donald Trump’s new shiny tower in the middle of downtown Vancouver. He decided to remind Trump of who helped build his multi-billion dollar empire: immigrants.

He starts the video by giving viewers a “tour” of the view from atop the tower when he points out a Mexican flag that he placed at the top for the world to see. After all, many of Trump’s towers would not be here today if it was not for the immigrants who built them, and some of those immigrants were undocumented. Heck, even some of his regular employees in the hotels are undocumented immigrants, like Ricardo Aca.

“From the drywall to the concrete finish to the steel framing to the cleaning and the scrap, this building is standing here today thanks to us, to our hard work and out labor,” Reyna says in the video. “There’s a little present for Mr. Trump so that every time you judge us you can think who is building your towers? We are.”

Here is the Facebook post at the center of the story.

“MR Trump, we did our best work, your tower here in Vancouver is premium quality, and we were a crucial part of it, not just Mexicans but immigrants as a whole,” Reyna wrote. “The comments Trump has made about us, did not stop us from doing the high quality work we have always done, in our home country or when we migrate to the US/Canada.”

Here Are The Many Ways Gloria from ‘Modern Family’ Is A Kick-Ass Mother

Modern Family / ABC

Gloria Pritchett, Sofia Vergara’s character on “Modern Family,” is often criticized for being a one-dimensional stereotype of Latinas. But, if you actually take time to watch the show, there are lots of moments where Gloria shows more depth than you realize.

She promotes positive body image.

Gloria compliments her son, Manny, and praises how wonderful he is whenever she gets a chance.

She’ll even go as far as enlisting other family members to build his confidence:

But she does it for a reason.

Soooooo this ^ is why Gloria tries so hard to make sure her son does not have a body complex.

She’s talked about the difficulties of learning a new language.

And she encourages Manny to speak Spanish…

Even though he’d rather learn French.

 And she defends her home by any means necessary.

Remember the time someone egged the Pritchett house? Gloria was HEATED. You know the saying, an eye for an egg. (No one says that.)

She won’t let anyone tell her kids they can’t do something.

Even if they can’t.

She helps her kids conquer their fears.

Much like my mom, Gloria has a fear of bikes and her children riding them. But Gloria knows her fears shouldn’t be passed down to her kids, so she lets Jay teach Manny and herself how to ride a bike.

Manny loved the bike lesson. Gloria did not.

In the end, Gloria becomes an example for Manny, showing him she won’t give in to her fears.

She keeps her family traditions alive.

She reminds Manny to stop and smell the roses. Literally…

Before Gloria married Jay, she was a single mother who worked her booty off as a hairdresser to make ends meet. She not only enjoyed it AND was really good at it, but also missed it from time to time.

She also teaches Manny how to defend himself…

Just like her.

She does whatever she can for her unborn baby.

Gloria dedicated herself to singing to unborn baby Joe after reading that singing helps babies in the womb. Unfortunately, she sounds like a cat in heat when she sings. A very loud cat. In a lot of heat.

Only listen if you are very brave. Or deaf.

She’s always checking in on her kids to make sure they’re OK…

Even when it’s to the point of smothering.
