Donald Trump’s advisors might be as delusional as him. Michael Cohen, an attorney and executive in the Trump organization, or simply a Trump advisor, was quoted as saying: “…That’s OK because the ones that don’t like Trump aren’t even here legally and they can’t vote, so it doesn’t really matter, right? And I understand their point of view. They’re — they do not want to be asked to leave, right? And go back where? Go back to their homes? You know they don’t want to. So I understand.”
We’ve had a lot of WTF moments with Trump, but this is seriously WTF?! Alright, Mr. Cohen, let’s give you a lesson on the Latino population in the United States because, clearly, you need it. And maybe you can pass on this info to your boss.
The Latino population in this country is currently 57 million strong. Of those, ONLY 11 million are here illegally. Which means that there are 46 million Latinos living legally in THEIR country. Every year, 800,000 turn 18 adding to the 12 million Latinos already qualified to vote.
And guess what? The Latino Decisions/ImpreMedia poll found that of the registered Latino voters in swing states, 71 percent don’t like Trump. So do we matter? We think YES.
