Earlier this week the Third Presidential Debate took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. To which some local food vendors replied, this may be good for business… something to taco ‘bout.
The Culinary Union chose to build a wall of trucks around Trump’s International Las Vegas hotel near the UNLV where the debate was held. In addition to the taco trucks, a banner was held allowing people to sign for good fun.
The purpose of the taco-filled food wall outside of Trump’s Las Vegas hotel:
“We’re reminding Mr. Trump that immigrant workers here and across the country will be watching the debate and voting in November,” said Yvanna Cancela, Political Director for the largely immigrant led union.
Last December, Trump’s hotel workers chose to unionize. Their position, Trump refuses to bargain on workers’ rights issues. A vote took place and the union was put into effect. Their union is partnered with such groups as: The American Bridge, Latino Victory Project, PLAN Action, iAmerica Action, Center for Community Change Action, For Our Future, among others.
“Everyone coming together is really about sending a message that we reject Trump and the politics of hate,” said iAmerica president Rocio Saenz.
In addition to their hilarious attempt to bring attention to Trump’s bigotry, and hate-filled speech, The Culinary Union has been working year-long to help neutralize immigrants interested in voting against Trump next month, November. This has included some of his hotel workers…
So, exactly how many showed up Wednesday morning? Within a matter of hours before the debate, half a dozen taco trucks formed their wall. Chants rang out among the crowds, #DumpTrump and, #MakeAmericaGreatAgain – start here.
The Culinary Union represents nearly 50,000 Nevada workers. Last month, they even organized a call to supporters to boycott any and all Trump affiliated businesses.
To remind readers, all of this has come about due to Republican Candidate Nominee and Businessman Donald Trump, issuing the promise to build a wall along the border of the southern American and Mexican states.
After all the angry animosity, and waste of energy, shared on the debate stage, stomachs must have been rumbling for food. Wednesday night was one helluva tasty day…
