#TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner went viral Friday, less than 24 hours after a Latino Trump supporter made a polarizing comment on MSNBC.
"My culture is a very dominant culture," Latinos for Trump co-founder Marco Gutierrez said Thursday night, if Hillary Clinton wins the White House. "And it's imposing, and it's causing problems. If you don't do something about it, you're gonna have taco trucks every corner."
Gutierrez’s comments came several days after Donald Trump visited Mexico’s president and gave a speech in Arizona laying out his plan for immigration. In his speech, Trump stressed border control and called yet again for building a wall on the Mexican border.
It didn’t take long for the twitterverse to weigh in, turning the hashtag into one of the top trending topics in the nation, and in Seattle.
Here’s a sampling of posts from politicos, presidential candidates, celebrities and voters alike.
Actress Eva Longoria tweeted, “What’s wrong with #TacoTrucksonEvereyCorner and encouraged fans to use her taco truck emoji.
Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin tweeted that taco vendors played a big part in the American economy.
Seattleites also weighed in, most of whom were thrilled at the prospect of more #TacoTrucksonEvereyCorner.
Crap. In Seattle we'll probably just get mayo-soaked, syrupy Canadian tacos. #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner— Scott Stevens (@nontanto) September 2, 2016
