Trump Finally Gets His Wall — Of Taco Trucks

A wall of Taco Trucks is lining up outside the Trump International Las Vegas hotel, ahead of the final presidential debate.

Update:  Nothing says debate night more than fresh tacos.

With the final presidential debate just hours away, the "wall" of taco trucks is not only standing tall, but gaining momentum.

Six trucks can be seen assembling outside the Trump International Las Vegas hotel as a protest against the Republican nominee.

 

CNN reported that workers were heard chanting slogans and handing out tacos.

One worker was heard saying, "If you don't get out and vote, this clown could be president."

 

The Culinary Union, which has organized the protest, has been railing against Trump after his refusal to bargain with hotel employees after they unionized in December.


Donald Trump might be getting the wall he’s dreamed of after all. 

However, it isn't exactly what he had in mind but rather, a wall of taco trucks. And no, Mexico’s not paying for it.

On Tuesday, the Culinary Union announced its plan to set up five taco trucks outside the Trump International Las Vegas hotel ahead of the final presidential debate set to take place at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Wednesday.

The group, which represents Latino and immigrant workers, has been vocal about its distaste for the Republican nominee.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, political director for the union Yvanna Cancela said, “We’re reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November.”

Since last December, the union has organized approximately 10 rallies outside the Trump hotel alongside other groups including the Latino Victory Project, American Bridge, and the Center for Community Change Action, among dozens of other immigrant activists.

Trump has raised the ire of the Hispanic and immigrant communities throughout his campaign. In addition to his promise to build a wall along the Mexican border, he famously kicked off his presidential campaign by calling Mexicans “rapists.”

He later questioned a judge’s ability to be partial because of his Mexican heritage and he has called for all undocumented workers to be deported.

Latinos for Trump founder, Marco Gutierrez

Back in September, the founder of Latinos for Trump, Marco Gutierrez, unknowingly coined the hashtag "Taco Trucks On Every Corner" on Twitter while defending Trump’s call to build a wall during an interview on MSNBC. 

“My culture is a very dominant culture, and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems,” he said. “If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”

As the Culinary Union proceeds with their brilliant plan, it would appear that Gutierrez’s “prediction” is coming true.
