Last week, big dumb dummy Donald Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
This stupid statement cost him deals with NBC, Spanish-language television network Univision, and Macy’s. Now, Welcome2theBronx blogger Ed Garcia Conde has added to the much-deserved pile-on by starting a petition calling on elected officials to cancel Trump’s contract with the city to operate the Ferry Point Golf Course in the Bronx. The population of the Bronx is majority Hispanic/Latino, and someone who is vocally racist toward Hispanic people does not deserve to make money there of all places.
Garcia Conde writes:
Not only is this an insult to the Mexican community but it is an insult to The Bronx who is home to one of the largest Mexican populations along the East Coast.
It is also an insult to a borough that prides itself as a home for so many immigrants from all over the world, immigrants that work hard to achieve that American dream, immigrants that contribute to the taxes that paid for Trump’s Ferry Point Golf Course in our borough to the tune of $230 million. It is an insult to the borough with the highest Latino population in New York City.
We have little to add except to say that Ed Garcia Conde is right, and fuck Donald Trump.
