REPORT: Half Of Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Board Is Ready To Resign Today


After Donald Trump’s acidic hard-line immigration policy speech last night, his Latino surrogates are abandoning ship. It started with one, then others followed. First, Houston attorney Jacob Monty resigned from Trump’s National Hispanic Advisory Council, while Latino conservative leader Alfonso Aguilar said he is “inclined” to pull his support as a consequence of Trump’s speech. Monty said, “I was a strong supporter of Donald Trump when I believed he was going to address the immigration problem realistically and compassionately. What I heard today was not realistic and not compassionate.”

Then, one by one, more Latino advisors for the GOP presidential nominee jumped off the Trump Train Wreck:

Two other Hispanic Trump advisors also told Politico they were considering pulling out the campaign, with one, Pastor Ramiro Peña, going as far as the call the Trump campaign a “scam.”

Meanwhile on Twitter, conservative pundit Leslie Sanchez reported that a Hispanic Trump advisor had tipped her off that half of Trump’s Hispanic advisory board was expected to resign.

It’s not one or two. Half of Trump’s Hispanic advisory board is ready to resign following his immigration speech.

Donald doubled down on his bombastically caustic rhetoric, calling immigrants murderers and thieves. Donald promised that the first two million would be out of the country within an hour of his taking the oath of office.

Well there goes Donald’s minority outreach, even though it never came to fruition anyway. Donald speaks down to African-Americans while speaking in nearly all-white areas. He travels to Mexico after disparaging the country’s citizens for over a year. To win, Donald would need strong support from women, blacks and Hispanics. Meanwhile, half of  his own Hispanic advisory board is resigning due to his inflammatory remarks. Donald polls favorably among black people at zero percent. And women just don’t like the cringeworthy arsehole. Donald can’t possibly win with only the Old White People’s Vote. He needs more than that.
