Donald Trump’s ‘Taco Bowl’ Message: ‘I Love Hispanics’

New York Times
By Ashley Parker
May 5, 2016

Less than 48 hours after becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump began his Hispanic outreach with … “taco bowls.”

Yes, taco bowls.

On his social media accounts, including Twitter, Mr. Trump shared on Thursday afternoon a photo of himself eating what he called a taco bowl and offering a thumbs up at his desk in Trump Tower, along with the message: “Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!”

Hispanics, however, do not yet love Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump has alienated many Hispanic voters with his campaign, which he began with a speech that dubbed some Mexicans as criminals and rapists. His rallies often include rowdy calls to build a large wall at the border with Mexico.

Eighty-two percent of Hispanic registered voters view Mr. Trump unfavorably and only 8 percent view him favorably, according to a CBS News poll in April.

But for those hoping to experience Mr. Trump’s taco magic, they may actually have to head to his Trump Café — not the Trump Tower Grill, as he claims — as some eagle-eyed reporters have already pointed out.

The Tower Grill does not, in fact, offer taco bowls, but the Trump Café has them on Thursday’s Cinco de Mayo menu as a “Taco fiesta!”
