CEO of Goya Foods sparks outrage from Dems after saying we are “blessed” to have Trump as President

Democrats on social media are lashing out after Bob Unanue, the CEO of Goya Foods, a leading hispanic foods company, heaped praise on President Trump.

“We are all truly blessed to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” said Unanue during his speech at the White House’s Rose Garden.

“We have an incredible builder. And we pray.” Unanue continued “We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country — that we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

While, Unanue also showed off tremendous generosity by pledging more than one million pounds of food for food banks nationwide, Democrats were quick to condemn his praise for Trump.

The reaction was swift and many called for a boycott.

Rep. AOC tweeted:

Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling “how to make your own Adobo”

Former 2020 candidate Julian Castro tweeted:

@GoyaFoods has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations.

Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products. #Goyaway

Voto Latino tweeted:

The CEO of @GoyaFoods thinks we’re “blessed to have a leader” who’s letting this pandemic kill us, cage our children, and constantly dehumanizes us.

Yo Goya, tell your man to stop praising a racist. Latinos made him and his family rich by buying Goya products for decades.
