US Election: Trump backer’s Taco warning if Clinton wins:

The founder of Latinos For Trump has been widely mocked for warning of a future with “taco trucks on every corner” in the US if Hillary Clinton wins the presidential election.

Marco Gutierrez was explaining why he supports Donald Trump, a day after the presidential candidate’s visit to Mexico.

“My culture is a very dominant culture and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems,” he told MSNBC.

“If you don’t do something about it, you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”

Will the trucks offer burritos also? Will the meat be shredded or ground? Will the Cokes come from Mexico?

There are a lot of questions that have to be answered to determine whether this is merely a good idea or a great idea. 😆
