CNN was once again surprised to find out the lies they have been spreading have not been accepted by those they deem as the ruled class. They sent reporters to the border, hoping to film anti-Trump responses by talking to Latinos they thought would oppose the border wall. As Gomer Pyle would say, “Surprise, surprise, surprise.” On Monday’s Erin Burnett OutFront, CNN’s Miguel Marquez noted that a full 34% of Latinos support President Trump. That may seem like a small amount, but it’s the most support any Republican candidate has ever gotten, meaning their vote could reelect the President.
Rolando Rodriguez, who lives a mile from the border in McAllen, Texas, said he wants a 2,600-mile border wall that is “longer and taller.”
When asked how much taller he wants the border wall to be, Rodriguez replied, “twice as much at least.”
Rodriguez, who said he supports Trump because of religious issues and “border politics,” added that he believes that the border wall will be a barrier for the “bad people” and not the “good people.”
CNN also found Mayra Gutierrez, who is in the process of getting her U.S. citizenship so she can vote for Trump. She said she supports Trump because of abortion, the economy, and immigration.
“We do have a lot of problems here with immigration, and I do support his stance for the wall,” Gutierrez told CNN.
Joacim Hernandez, the president of the Hidalgo County Young Republicans, told the outlet that the last time Trump visited the area, there were a lot of Latinos “that were out there supporting him.”
Marquez’s interviews were consistent with what former longtime Univision anchor María Elena Salinas told CNN in January about Trump’s appeal among a significant number of Latinos. Salinas implied that Trump could have more support among Latinos than conventional wisdom and even polling suggests.
