Jorge Rivas, the owner of Sammy’s Mexican Grill, stole the show at a Latino roundtable with President Donald Trump in Phoenix, Arizona on Monday.
Rivas told the story of how their Mexican restaurant was beset by online hate after he and his wife attended a Trump rally with a sign that read “Latinos for Trump.”
Recalling Trump’s response to the news by promoting the restaurant on Twitter, he thanked the president for his support.
“I want to say that your tweets have helped tremendously,” he said with a grin.
The president attended the roundtable as part of a campaign swing out West.
Several Latinos spoke about why they supported President Trump, citing his efforts to secure the border, creating safer communities, and creating a strong economy for small businesses.
Rivas spoke from the heart, explaining why he was a Trump supporter from the first day that he announced his campaign
