Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump issued a Cinco de Mayo greeting on Twitter today, boasting that the best taco bowls in the world are made at Trump Tower. Trump also said that he loves Hispanics.
Reactions to the tweet were varied:
Perfect https://t.co/iR6MkHdOq9— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) May 5, 2016
somehow less patronizing than that "Hillary is just like my abuela" campaign from a few months ago https://t.co/3PgzdSlUFb— Almaqah (@_Almaqah) May 5, 2016
This was all a ruse to sell hotel food?— Tim Carney (@TPCarney) May 5, 2016
is this even real life any more— darth!™ (@darth) May 5, 2016
is it https://t.co/G25PRr0z2k
This is kinda like when Hillary Clinton assumed all the wait staff at the hotel she was speaking in were illegal. https://t.co/sqPZooDafZ— RBe (@RBPundit) May 5, 2016
Oh c'mon Trump I wouldn't even do this in character ?? https://t.co/fxhght0FaY— Kate (@katethewasp) May 5, 2016
It's hard to put into words how much I love this tweet https://t.co/hvh4oFY0UL— Nate (@BarstoolNate) May 5, 2016
If you put the hot sauce in Hillary's purse on Trump's taco bowl, it is really delicious. Believe me.— Jim Antle (@jimantle) May 5, 2016
Of course Donald Trump eats taco bowls, the only Mexican food that comes with a wall built around it.— Erin Gloria Ryan (@morninggloria) May 5, 2016
While Trump claims to love Hispanics, they're not really returning the favor. Over three out of four Hispanics have an unfavorable view of the candidate.
UPDATE: The plot...thickens?
Just got off phone with Trump Grill, says they don't serve taco bowls. It's not on the menu online.— andrew kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) May 5, 2016
UPDATE II: Judd Legum of ThinkProgress has found the taco bowl/salad. They're apparently a seasonal item at Trump Café.
