‘The Democrats are taking away our tacos and burning the Virgin Mary!’ Trump campaign unveils wild new Spanish-language ads in wake of Goya boycott (and call Biden ‘the deportations guy’)
- The Trump campaign debuted a series of radio and TV ads highlighting liberals’ call to boycott Goya after the company’s CEO praised President Donald Trump
- One of the radio ads goes from blasting Democrats for ‘taking away my tacos’ to saying they’re ‘burning churches and even the Virgin Mary’
- ‘And did you see them marching with the Che Guevara flag over by Biscayne?’ another one of the radio ads says
- Joe Biden looks weaker among Latinos than Hillary Clinton did in 2016, which could give Trump an opening
- Sen. Bernie Sanders did better among Latino voters than Biden in the Democratic primary, who attracted protesters for Obama-era deportations
The Trump campaign debuted a series of wild, new Spanish-language television and radio ads highlighting liberals’ call to boycott Goya after the company’s CEO Robert Unanue appeared at the White House on July 9 and praised Trump.
One of the radio ads goes from blasting Democrats for ‘taking away my tacos’ to saying they’re ‘burning churches and even the Virgin Mary’ and then calls Biden ‘the deportations guy,’ according to the English translation.
A series of new Spanish language radio and television ads debuted featuring the recent controversy over Goya, a food company popular with Latinos
The ads feature President Donald Trump’s Democratic rival Joe Biden linking him to the Goya boycott and liberal extremists

The Trump campaign’s Goya ad also features Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, linking AOC and other Democrats to leftist figures
Both the radio and TV ads stoke fears that Democrats are in line with socialists and leftist figures like Che Guevara
The ads capitalize on a controversy started after Goya CEO Robert Unanue (pictured) appeared at the White House on July 9 and praised President Donald Trump

Another radio ad says ‘Democrats and their socialist mouthpieces want to shut down Goya just because its CEO visited the White House.’
‘Many Hispanics would lose their jobs but Democrats like Joe Biden do not care,’ it goes on. ‘They’re hypocrites and very extreme.’
The spot also warns Latino voters that Democrats ‘want to raise our electric bills.’
‘And Biden is too weak to defend us,’ it says.
A third ad, which features a conversation between two Spanish-speaking women, has one saying, ‘I think the Democrats have a loose screw mama.’
And another pointing out, ‘And did you see them marching with the Che Guevara flag over by Biscayne?’ which is a Miami-based reference.
The ads will target Florida’s Latino voters.
The Trump campaign recruited actress Susana Pérez to read the voiceover in the television ad, which shows imagery of Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez labeling them as extremists and socialists and linking them to leftists figures like Guevara.
Trump will likely need to win Florida again if he plans to beat Biden in the Electoral College.
He could do so with Latino voters who Biden is seeing less support from than Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton.
In the 2020 Democratic primary, Sanders, a self-proclaimed democratic-socialist, attracted a big chunk of the Democratic Latino vote, which allowed him to easily win the Nevada caucuses.
Biden, on the other hand, attracted protesters throughout the primary over the Obama administration’s deportation record.
