Trump’s Hispanic Heritage Month Speech Included His Complaining That Some Latino Leaders Are Too Tough

President Trump celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month today at the White House along with his wife Melania. During a speech to the press and attendees, Trump mentioned the number of Latino Medal of Honor recipients and the importance of standing up against the Communist regime in Cuba. He also took a moment to express his sadness about the mass shooting that happened in Las Vegas earlier in the week. And once again, Trump’s words raised a few eyebrows, just as they did during his trip to Puerto Rico.

After talking about the important relief work happening in Puerto Rico, Trump attempted to pronounce “Puerto Rico” in Spanish.

“We are also praying for the people of Puh-werto Rico,” Trump said with extra breathing to emphasize his Spanish accent. “We love Puh-weto Rico. Puh-werto Rico.” Then, with a smirk on his face, Trump added, “And we also love Porto Rico, heh.”

Those were the words Trump had for the island of people trying to recover from a devastating hurricane that all but wiped out the island. The same people Trump threw paper towels at during a four-hour visit earlier this week.

Trump also joked that some of the Latino leadership he interacts with are just too tough.

“You teach our children. You lead our churches. You protect our communities and you defend our nation. Among you are leaders in government, faith, and business. Fantastic people in this audience,” Trump said at the White House event. “I know some of them, and believe me, they’re very tough and they’re very smart. Sometimes they’re too tough. But that’s OK. I have to deal with it. I have to deal with it. Fantastic people.”

Trump’s Hispanic Heritage Month event would have been totally void of any immigration talk had it not been for this guy.

The man above has been identified as Freddy Burgos, a member of the Virginia Republican State Central Committee, who recently had to issue an apology for anti-Muslim and anti-immigration tweets. According to The Washington Post, Burgos called Islam a cult organized by Satan, compared Muslims to Nazis, and called District Judge Gonzalo Curiel an “anchor baby.”

That about sums up Trump’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration today.

AOC Is Calling On Democrats To Hold No Punches In Response To Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation

AOC Is Calling On Democrats To Hold No Punches In Response To Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation

It’s official. Amy Coney Barrett, the judge who is opposed to marriage equality and the Affordable Care Act, is a Supreme Court justice. Barrett has two years of experience as a judge and her confirmation to the Supreme Court has renewed the fight by Democrats, especially AOC.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ready to fight after the latest Supreme Court confirmation.

Amy Coney Barrett is President Trump’s third Supreme Court appointee and her confirmation has reenergized Democratic politicians. Rep. AOC used the confirmation to call for the Democrats to step up and fight like Republicans.

During President Obama’s last year, the Republican-led Senate refused to hold hearings for his appointee Merrick Garland 8 months before the election. Sen. Mitch McConnell at the time claimed it was inappropriate to hold a hearing during President Obama’s last year. Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation was rushed through with only 8 days till an election.

Barrett’s confirmation is energizing Democratic voters and what they want to see from a Democratic-controlled government.

Democratic voters have long been calling for politicians to pushback against the Republican Party. A common sentiment among the voters is that the Democrats in power have not been forceful enough on behalf of the voters. Rep. AOC is a politician elected to power in the name of that frustration.

An argument has been made to change the court by following past precedent.

Democratic candidates and politicians are calling the Republican Party’s move to confirm Barrett a sham. The argument used is that millions of American have already voted and the confirmation should have been held until the election. Democrats claim that if President Trump loses then Barrett’s confirmation goes against the will of the American voters.

Voters are hoping for a more vocal Democratic Party.

There is one week before the election and millions of people have already voted. Millions more will vote before Nov. 3 and both parties are doing everything in their power to win the election. Democrats saw a historic surge in donations after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death through ActBlue. It is clear that the Democratic Party is motivated but will it translate into votes.

Black Eyed Peas With Jennifer Hudson Redo Lyrics Of ‘Where Is The Love’ For Powerful Biden Ad

Black Eyed Peas / YouTube

There are seven days left until the 2020 presidential elections. Democrats and Republicans are doing everything they can to make sure that their party wins. The Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Hudson joined the fight for a Biden/Harris administration with a powerful ad.

The Black Eyed Peas, Jennifer Hudson, and Joe Biden are appealing to the love of the American people.

The Black Eyed Peas with Jennifer Hudson reworked the lyrics to the groups mega hit “Where Is The Love” to appeal to the American voters. The video starts with Joe Biden quoting the late civil rights activist Ella Baker saying, “Give people light and they will find the way.”

Biden’s ad is a final push to appeal to the American voters’ compassion and love. Images of protesters fighting against police brutality and white supremacy stand alongside the white supremacists marching with torches. The stark realities of two Americas is shocking as people from all walks of life hold up hearts with their hands to appeal to voters.

The ad is resonating with voters who are desperate for a hopeful message from the White House.

Fear and hate have dominated the past four years. Marginalized communities have lost rights and progress under the Trump administration. The administration has apologized for white supremacists while underplaying the danger it poses to the U.S. The FBI has named white supremacy the biggest domestic terror threat in the U.S. yet the Trump administration has done little to limit it. During the first presidential debate, President Trump was asked to condemn white supremacy and he was not able to do so.

For Biden, the election is a referendum on what kind of nation we want moving forward.

People are excited to see this collaboration. It is tugging at everyone’s heartstrings. Hate crimes have increased significantly under the Trump administration and police brutality has become more visible. The deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor highlighted the need to better train our police forces and change policing in the U.S. Americans took to the streets for months protesting the disproportionate share of local and state budgets allocated to police departments.

People are focusing on the issues on the ballot.

The Democratic Party is highlighting the issues represented on the ballot this election. From immigration to healthcare to democracy, the argument from the Democratic Party is that this election is the most consequential election of our lifetime. Furthermore, the Democratic Party and the Biden/Harris campaign argue that the soul and spirit of our nation are on the ballot.

Don’t forget to vote on Nov. 3 or send in your mail-in ballot in time to make sure that your vote and voice are heard.
