Democratic politicians and leftists on Twitter are rallying to boycott Hispanic-owned food-maker Goya, after the company's CEO heaped praise on President Donald Trump.
During a speech in the White House Rose Garden following a roundtable for Hispanic businesses and leaders on Thursday, Goya CEO Robert Unanue said, "We're all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder."
He added, "We have an incredible builder. And we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country — that we will continue to prosper and grow."
Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) declared on Twitter, "Oh look, it's the sound of me Googling 'how to make your own Adobo."
Failed Democratic presidential 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"
