Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue said on Friday that he is not surrendering to a boycott over his visit to the White House.
“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” said Unanue, who is of Latin descent, at the White House event.

“We were part of a commission called the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative and they called on us to be there to see how we could help opportunities within the economic and educational realm for prosperity among Hispanics and among the United States,” Unanue told the media.

Behind Mexico, the United States is the second-largest Hispanic country in the world.

Liberal Hispanic-hating politicians and airhead Hollywood celebrities are boycotting Goya, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the country, because of the CEO’s praise of the president. But the American public is doing the opposite and from coast to coast, New York to California, Goya products are flying off shelves as consumers who have not previously purchased Goya products are doing so now in support of the CEO and President Trump.

On Saturday afternoon at a Giant grocery store in Severna Park, Maryland, a quiet DC suburban community that is not exactly a hotbed of Latin culture or residence, Goya products were quickly disappearing, as shoppers prepared to make meals with such Hispanic staples as Mojo marinade and classic Latin spices such as coriander and annatto.

Goya has also been a leader in philanthropy, donating millions of pounds of products to food kitchens and homeless shelters around the nation.

At the event in question, Trump hosted Hispanic leaders at the White House on Thursday and signed an executive order on the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative to use more taxpayer support for private and charter schools and “improve access by Hispanic Americans to education and economic opportunities.”

Self-hating Hispanics Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) and failed former Democrat presidential candidate Julian Castro of Texas pathetically tried to curry favor with Anglo-Saxon liberals by bowing and scraping before the altar of political correctness. To no avail, as their cowardice and Quisling behavior only cemented their image as craven sellouts of the culture practiced by people of their own heritage. Though one must admit, as both are of Puerto Rican and Mexican heritage respectively, a savory Cuban and/or South American meal may be beyond their culinary ken.

In alliance with the Uncle Tacos, a number of comically stupid celebrities took aim at Goya on social media with hashtags like #BoycottGoya and #GOYAWAY. Many urged people who use Goya products to start buying foods produced by the company’s competitors. As reported earlier, Americans are doing exactly the opposite, which shows the respect most Americans have for the counsel of the Hollywood crowd.

Goya CEO Unanue called the pushback a “suppression of speech.” Unanue said that he was previously invited to the White House for an event hosted by the Obama administration for Hispanic Heritage Month.

“So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable,” Unanue said. He said he is not apologizing for his remarks supporting Trump’s economic policy and would not turn down other future invitations. Why would he? The Trump invitation and subsequent liberal boycott has made his company lots of money.

AOC hates herself for not being "white". And the same with Castro. Both hate America and Trump and their own culture so badly, they just couldn't help trying to hurt this man and the company. They don't care if they put 4,ooo people out of work either do they? Everyone knows that little cow, AOC doesn't care one bit if other people have a job or not, she proved that when she ran Amazon out of NY.

I love Goya foods. I have been buying them for years especially living in Arizona, Mexican food is a staple around here next to the border. I am so glad this failed for the stupid liberals. They always cut off their nose to spite their face.

When are the liberal idiots going to figure out that they are in the minority? Every time they call for a boycott the conservatives meet their challenge by supporting whatever it is that the losers are boycotting proving once again, we are a larger contingency than they think we are. Same thing happened to Chic fil A years ago when the liberals called for a boycott, conservatives stood in lines wrapped around the stores for hours just to buy something from the chain. If there is one thing that can be counted on it is the stupidity of the liberal left, they have no brains when it comes to thinking.

It is always the right thing to stand up to the Democrats. Never give up and never give in to their stupid pc outrage over anything. Once you do, they have won. Never apologize for taking a patriotic stand like Drew Breez did. They win when we apologize. The libs are bullies and we have to stand strong against them.

I have known Bob Unanue for many years. Been with him at many fundraising events. He was always the first to give tp the cause! He is a principal minded man that has always done the right things. Shame on AOC for organizing a boycott and shame on all the other dems for their disgusting and hypocritical behaviour. They make me sick, not a word was said when he was invited to the White House and said similar things about Hussein Obama. Idiots

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

Published

The Democrats demonized President Trump for using the word ‘fight’. Trump’s attorneys responded today with a collage of clips from each of the Democrats in the room using the word ‘fight’.

This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
