As Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue joined to President Trump in the Rose Garden Thursday evening (july 9th), the CEO of a company that claim itself as America’s biggest Hispanic food organization recollected his grandfather. The Spanish immigrant and Trump share something in common, Unanue said.

“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder, and that’s what my grandfather did,” the executive said. “He came to this country to build, to grow, to prosper. And so we have an incredible builder, and we pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country that we will continue to prosper and to grow.”

In any case, what were proposed to be celebratory remarks denoting Trump’s signing an executive order that vows to improve Hispanic Americans’ entrance to educational and monetary open doors rather powered a firestorm of backfire focusing on Unanue and Goya that finished in far reaching calls to blacklist the well known brand.

As clasps of Unanue’s comments circled via web-based networking media Thursday, Latinos and long-term supporters of Goya’s food hammered the CEO’s recognition of Trump, refering to the president’s combustible way of talking and questionable approaches focused on minority networks and workers. By early Friday, “Goya” was as yet a top inclining term on Twitter alongside the hashtags #Goyaway and #BoycottGoya as various open figures, including Democrats, for example, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and previous presidential applicant Julián Castro, reprimanded Unanue — a third-age Spanish American — for applauding Trump.

“Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling ‘how to make your own Adobo,’” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, sharing a video of Unanue speaking.

Castro urged Americans to “think twice” before buying Goya products.
