Donald Trump shared a special Cinco de Mayo message for his nearly 8 million Twitter followers Thursday. According to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, his own Trump Tower Grill has the taco bowl game on lock. "Happy #CincoDeMayo!" Trump wrote. "I love Hispanics!"
Though Trump's Cinco de Mayo message was promptly shared more than 50,000 times across his swatch of social media accounts, previous comments from the former Apprentice host have left others feeling less-than-enthused about the taco bowl:
Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton quickly shared her own thoughts on the Trump Taco fiasco, noting Trump had called for mass deportation just one day before proclaiming "I love Hispanics!"
For what it’s worth, the Trump Tower Grill's currently lists the "Taco fiesta!" for the seemingly hefty price of $13.50:
Trump kicked off his presidential campaign in June 2015, delivering now infamous remarks about Mexican immigrants that quickly led to many major corporations distancing themselves from Trump's brand. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said during his campaign announcement speech. "They're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
For a take on the deeper meaning behind Trump's taco-based Cinco de Mayo message, Complex reached out to our food-loving friends at First We Feast for the definitive assessment. "Is the taco salad supposed to be a vote of confidence for the Hispanic population?" editor Justin Bolois said. "We've already seen people upset over his alleged anti-taco sensibilities. Don't think this one is helping his cause, even if I approve of the dollop of sour cream."
