One year removed from the 2016 election and Donald Trump hauling in that “better than Romney” 28 percent of the Hispanic vote, MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff teamed up with a Latino radio host to interview several Latino Trump voters and gauge their perceptions of how the president is doing so far.
The response the MSNBC host got was likely not what he was expecting.
“Are you still happy with the way that you voted and the way that he’s doing?” Soboroff asked.
“Yes, especially in the economy,” the Latino show host responded. “We are growing at 3.1 percent.”
“What surprised me most when I was here last time, so many of your listeners called in and said to me, ‘it doesn’t matter that I’m Latino, it doesn’t matter that Donald Trump has insulted so many members of my race,’” Soboroff said. “I wanna know, a year later, since all of this, do people out there, do your listeners feel the same way?”
They played several calls to find out:
“I feel way way way better with this president than before he was president,” said one listener. “So, I will vote for him again and probably for his family if they run for president after 2020.”
Another listener didn’t pin the ending of DACA to Trump, but rather to Obama for setting the expiration date. Trump merely let it expire, according to the listener.
“Enough is enough!” said a listener. “Enough of the political correctness. Enough that everybody gets coddled. Enough of the establishment.”
“I voted for Donald Trump … and at this point in my life I am not sorry,” said one female listener. “Actually, I am very proud of Donald Trump to be my president.”
At what point would the host consider rescinding his support?
“If something comes out that proves that he did something illegal, I’m not going to support any of that. But for now, he’s good.”
