Hispanic Chamber CEO: Hispanics ‘Outraged’ by Trump ‘Rhetoric of Hatred and Divisiveness’

Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom With Carol Costello,” U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Javier Palomarez said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has “outraged” the Hispanic community with his “rhetoric of hatred and divisiveness.”

Palomarez said, “Rightly so, the Hispanic community is outraged. What Donald Trump has done, unfortunately continues to do. It’s a rhetoric of hatred and divisiveness. It was the Dallas chapter of the league of united Latin American citizens that felt strongly enough that they boycotted and got out in front of the stadium and tried to call attention to the fact that, you know, hate speak has no place in the presidential debate. And that it’s time we start talking again about the substance and what these individuals, all of them, have made in making America greater country and keeping us together.”
