Presidential hopeful Donald Trump says Latinos “love” him and that he’ll win their vote in 2016 despite controversial comments he made about Mexican immigrants that cost him his business relationships with the likes of NBC, Univision, Macy’s and NASCAR.
“I’ll win the Latino vote because I’ll create jobs,” he told NBC News on Wednesday. “I’ll create jobs and the Latinos will have jobs they didn’t have. I’ll do better on that vote than anybody. I will win that vote.”
In his first campaign announcement in June, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best … they are bringing drugs and they are bringing crime, and they’re rapists.” He’s since repeatedly stood by his comments and shrugged off his former business partners, calling them “weak.”
In the interview, he also took swipes at Hillary Clinton.
“In the history of the U.S. there’s never been a Secretary as bad as Hillary,” he said. “The world blew up around us, we lost everything, including all relationships. There wasn’t one good thing that came out of that administration or her being Secretary of State.”
