A year ago it seemed unlikely Donald Trump would become the Republican presidential candidate. Yet, over 365 days since the businessman and reality star announced his candidacy for president, here we are.
Trump may have flip-flopped on several issues over that time, but his ability to offend members of the Latino community has remained disturbingly consistent. And it hasn’t gone unnoticed: According to recent polls, Trump holds only 14 percent of the Latino vote compared to Hillary Clinton’s 76 percent.
Last August we collected just nine particularly outrageous things the Republican candidate had said about Latinos around the time of his campaign launch. Now, with the general election in full swing, we’ve compiled an updated list of Trump’s absurd ― and dangerous ― anti-Latino remarks.
Here are just nine ridiculous things the Donald has said about Latinos in the last year.
