Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

From The Hill:

Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chair Michelle Lujan Grisham sent a letter to President Trump Thursday rejecting an invitation to a reception honoring Hispanic Heritage Month.

Lujan Grisham, who is also the Democratic nominee for governor in New Mexico, slammed some of the White House’s policies and Trump’s rhetoric.

“During your presidential campaign and as president, you demonized and dehumanized the Hispanic community and spread fear and untruths.

[…]

“You have ignored and recently tweeted lies about the devastation and loss of life in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, compared immigration to an infestation, and attacked a judge because of his Hispanic heritage,” she wrote. “That rhetoric is not only unbecoming of the President of the United States; it has no place in American political discourse.”

Grisham added: “We are not a nation of fear, cruelty, division, or prejudice. We are a nation of dignity, humanity, tolerance, and hope, and those shared, essential values transcend our political differences.

And there it is again, Trump is a racist.

Of course, Lujan Grisham knows in her heart that Trump did not “demonize and dehumanize the Hispanic community.”

She’s just doing this to score points politically.

Everyone knows Trump was referring to illegal immigrants and criminals when he said Mexico was not sending “their best and brightest” on the campaign trail. That’s simply a fact.

Unfortunately for Lujan Grisham, Hispanic support for 45 is on the rise.

From Real Clear Politics:

In a new Harvard/Harris poll released this week exclusively to The Hill, President Trump’s overall approval rating rose to 47 percent, just two points shy of the highest level of his presidency, per that survey. The main driver of his growing popularity now: a stunning 10 percent rise in Trump approval among Hispanics.

That growing support among Latinos would surely surprise many Trump critics in Washington and the legacy media, who remain fixated on border issues. So intense is their hysteria regarding border enforcement that people like former CIA Director Michael Hayden compared our detention policies to the Auschwitz concentration camp in a tweet and MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch proclaimed on “Morning Joe” that ALL Trump voters are essentially Nazis.

[…]

Hispanics, by definition, are primarily a working-class demographic, as we on average own only a tenth of the household wealth of white families. Thankfully, President Trump’s policies of tax cuts and regulatory relief point to a brighter economic future for all wage earners, including Hispanics. For example, an incredible 2 million Americans have dropped off food stamps since Trump was elected. In the most recent government jobs report, wages for non-managerial workers rose at a 2.7 percent annual clip, the highest in a decade. The jobless rate for non-college graduates just hit the lowest level since 2001. These gains are highly beneficial to hard-working Hispanics, as Trump’s policies continue to lift the economic underdogs.

Hopefully, one day, Trump will be embraced for turning the country around economically and not remembered as a racist – because there’s simply no proof.
