LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles, Las Vegas Bureau) – Remember the Latino surrogate for the Trump campaign who a month ago warned that without tighter immigration policies from the Republican presidential nominee, “you’re going to have taco trucks on every corner.”
Needless to say, that didn’t sit well with Latino voters and the Trump campaign has been trying hard to do some damage control since then.
Now, the smart Donald Trump has turned that gaffe into his advantage, hoping to win back the votes of minority voters. Well, at least the Filipino American voters.
Trump, campaigning heavily in the state of Nevada which has a large Filipino population, declared that November 8, election day, will be “Lumpia Tuesday.”
Food trucks hired by the Trump campaign will be stationed at polling places throughout the country giving away free lumpia to all those who will promise to vote for the Donald when they go into the voting booth.
Lumpia is that delicious Filipino delicacy, akin to the Chinese eggroll.
So, on November 8, go out and vote. And have a lumpia!
