Setting aside the rabid political opposition to President Donald Trump, the business community seems to know the president offers the best opportunity for a promising future when it comes to the economy.

Case in point, Arte Moreno, the owner of the Los Angeles Angels, said Monday that it was “very necessary” to vote for Trump — of course, the Major League Baseball owner just set himself up for the next cancel target on the left, just ask the CEO of Goya, who said “we are truly blessed to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.”

 

Moreno, a fourth-generation Mexican American, was at a “Latinos for Trump” round table at the Phoenix Arizona Grand Resort & Spa, the Arizona Republic reported.

“We all know where we have been,” he said. “It’s necessary to focus on today and the future, and it’s very necessary to vote for President Trump.”

Coming from a conservative family, Moreno is a longtime Republican supporter and donor, according to the newspaper.

And the owner told those gathered a second Trump term would help small business owners — considering the Angels are currently valued at nearly $2 billion by Forbes, after Moreno bought the team for $184 million, he seems to know what he’s talking about.

Trump headlined the event following a visit to California, and “pledged he would not let down Latinos, would continue to cut red tape to make it easier to do business and vowed to stand with law enforcement,” The Republic reported.

The message went over well, as the article said the crowd “leapt to their feet to cheer his support of law enforcement and jubilantly chanted ‘four more years’ early in his remarks.”

This was reportedly the president’s fifth visit to Arizona this year, with the newspaper contrasting this effort with his Democratic opponent. Trump carried Arizona in 2016, beating Hillary Clinton by 4%.

“Trump’s attention to the crucial battleground state underscored his campaign’s efforts to limit momentum for his Democratic rival, Joe Biden,” the Republic noted. “The former vice president has not visited the state this year and has said he planned to travel here after Labor Day. On Monday, his Arizona campaign spokesperson still could not say when Biden would be making an appearance.”

Attendee Marie Lopez, 34, who wore a “Latinos for Trump” t-shirt with her husband, told The Republic she is voting for Trump.

“I just think it’s important for him to be elected again because there’s two totally different ways the world, I think, could go,” Lopez said. “I believe in his values and the majority of what he stands for and how he’s trying to save our country. It’s not perfect, but I believe he’s trying and that’s what’s important.”

Trump enjoys good support from the Hispanic community, as seen in Florida, where Cuban American voters strongly support the president. This has Democrats in a near panic.

There was a humorous moment at the event, when Trump said he’d like to hear from Moreno about how the Angels are doing, calling them a “great team.”

“We’re not playing that great right now,” the owner shot back, as the audience broke out laughing.
