Marco Gutierrez, founder of Latinos for Trump, warned of the future problem of "taco trucks on every corner" in the U.S. because his culture is "very dominant" (video below).
Gutierrez issued his dire prediction while being interviewed by Joy Reid, who was guest hosting MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes."
Reid asked Gutierrez if Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is hurting the Republican Party by alienating Latinos with his "no amnesty" speech in Phoenix on Aug. 31, but Gutierrez praised Trump's "tough message."
"We need to understand that this is a different time, and we’re having problems here," Gutierrez stated.
"What problems? What problems are you talking about?" Reid asked.
"My culture is a very dominant culture," Gutierrez replied. "And it’s imposing and it's causing problems. If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner."
"Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute," Reid exclaimed. "I'm sorry. Hold on a second. I have to let Adriano in here. I don’t even know what that means and I’m almost afraid to ask."
Democratic Sen. Adriano Espaillat of New York added, "I’m offended."
Gutierrez defended his assertion: "I'll tell you what that means. The Spanish never conquered Mexico. We have a lot of good things that we’re bringing to the United States, but we also have problems."
The hashtag #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner exploded on Twitter, with many commenters making severe mockery of Gutierrez, notes The Huffington Post:
That’s the worst thing you can think of? What else? Invading mariachi bands?
is this supposed to be a threat because it just sounds delicious, said another.
Taco trucks on every corner? If they serve good food what's the problem?
I live out in the country. Wish a taco truck would show up here once in a while.
EVERYWHERE WILL BE PORTLAND IN THIS NEW DYSTOPIA.
I'm not seeing a downside ... creating jobs and feeding us delicious food.
Did someone say Taco Truck? On every corner? Yummy! Bring it Amigos! What a great country!
the only good idea I've heard out of ANY trump surrogate...
Gutierrez didn't give up on his message and later tweeted: "Hillary Clinton = taco trucks on every corner," which brought yet more tweets for tacos and ridicule for Gutierrez.
