For the last few weeks, we have been reporting on Donald Trump, who found himself the target of liberal backlash after he criticized the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico during his campaign announcement.
While many didn’t take Trump seriously as a presidential candidate at the beginning, that all changed last week when polls revealed that Trump is currently the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination. Despite his success, the GOP establishment has been on a mission to take Trump down because he refuses to let them control him.
One of the people most angry with Trump is Mexican Hollywood star Salma Hayek. According to Daily Mail, Hayek is so livid about his comments about Mexico that she refuses to even say his name, saying that his name is “toxic.”
“Thanks to that [the Mexico comments] all the things that he said – I don’t repeat and I don’t say his name because I don’t want to give him extra publicity – but beyond him – this concept of America being a place where there is no discrimination, and it’s not racist anymore…” she told reporters. “I think it’s beginning to show that discrimination and racism in this country is a bigger problem than we accept it is. At least he brought a light into a real problem.”
Unfazed by Hayek’s comments, Trump bragged to reporters yesterday that polls show that he is currently number one among hispanic voters.
“I know you’re surprised to hear that, but I’m number one with the Hispanics. I said that if I get the nomination I will win with the Hispanics,” Trump said. “I’m number one in Nevada, I’m number one in North Carolina, and number one nationally. But very importantly, I’m number one with the Hispanics, it just came out yesterday.”
“The illegal immigration in the United States is a huge subject and I brought it to the fore and everybody is thanking me for it, that’s one of the reasons why I became number one in the polls,” he added.
Trump isn’t going to let some dumb actress bring him down. Nice try, Salma, but Trump is still number one!
