WATCH: Trump Adviser Engages In Casual Racism During Interview
Steve Cortes, a senior adviser to the Trump campaign who served on President Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council, claimed that a rise in sales of pickup trucks is proof that Hispanics are benefiting from Trump.
“Hispanics are also benefiting from this recovery right now, this economic renaissance that flourishes in our country,” Cortes said, offering the following example:
“Pickup truck sales, light and heavy weight truck sales, just hit an all-time high in September. Pickup trucks mean work. Hispanics are heavily involved in the kinds of trades that use pickup trucks.”
