    A group called “Latinos for Trump” held its first rally in Orange County on Sunday, named “Operation Taco Bowl” after an infamous Donald Trump tweet. Hispanics and African Americans joined other Trump supporters in voicing both their support for the Republican presidential nominee and their opposition to the Democratic Party and its nominee, Hillary Clinton.

    “The Democrats think they can own and acquire Hispanics’ loyalty for generations to come,” Jorge Herrera, 31, said into a microphone at a podium in front of Anaheim City Hall, where dozens of Trump supporters had gathered for the rally. “Who do they think they are? They will never own my loyalty. They will never own Hispanics’ loyalty.”

    When asked how he feels about the Democratic Party claiming the Hispanic vote, Herrera told Breitbart News:

    It’s just pandering. They don’t care about us. We can see middle class income down, Hispanic wealth is down, African-American wealth is down. You look at the top Democrat cities, they’re all down. It’s all about talk, no action. The statistics prove they have done nothing for everybody.

    Asked how fellow Hispanics react to his political leanings, he said:

    They’re not informed. They listen to Univision. They listen to the mainstream media, which happens to be very biased. They don’t know the truth and why we’re here, what we stand for. That’s why we’re having this event today and trying to get that message out to the community.
