“So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable”
Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue was at the White House this week with other Latino business leaders, as part of the ‘Hispanic Prosperity Initiative.’
Unanue offered some praise to President Trump and the unhinged left, including certain members of Congress, immediately called for a boycott of his company.
Dennis Romero reports at NBC News:
Goya Foods’ CEO said U.S. ‘blessed’ to have Trump as a leader, and calls for boycott quickly followed
Goya, which says it’s the nation’s largest Hispanic-owned food brand, is facing a backlash after its chief executive met with and heaped praise on President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday.
On Twitter, #BoycottGoya and #GoyaFoods were trending in the United States, and some Latinos were also using the hashtag #goyaway.
Trump reached out to Latino voters Thursday with a promised expansion of his “Hispanic Prosperity Initiative,” an effort said to include more taxpayer support for charter and private schools, and added tax benefits for “Opportunity Zone” development in urban neighborhoods.
Unanue appeared on FOX News this morning and said he refuses to apologize to the left, noting that he received no criticism when he agreed to appear under similar circumstances with President Obama in 2012:
Unanue called the pushback against him visiting the White House “suppression of speech.” Unanue said that he was previously invited to the White House for an event hosted by the Obama administration for Hispanic Heritage Month.
“So, you’re allowed to talk good or to praise one president, but you’re not allowed to aid in economic and educational prosperity? And you make a positive comment and all of a sudden, it is not acceptable,” Unanue said.
Unanue said he is not apologizing for his remarks supporting Trump’s economic policy and would not turn down other future invitations.
“I didn’t say that to the Obamas and I didn’t say that to President Trump.”

.@GoyaFoods has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations.
Now their CEO, Bob Unanue, is praising a president who villainizes and maliciously attacks Latinos for political gain. Americans should think twice before buying their products. #Goyaway https://t.co/lZDQlK6TcU

Supporters of Goya are pushing the hashtag #BuycottGoya
My brother came up with a terrific idea and I am encouraging all to join me in purchasing $10 worth of @GoyaFoods products and donating them to your local food bank. Let's push a BUY-cott, not a boycott. Let's show the #Goyaway people what compassion can do. https://t.co/SoHXRXHADG

This is not going to end any time soon. From now until the election, the left will try to cancel any person or company which does not share their rabid hatred of President Trump.
