President Donald Trump continues to remind us why we elected him.
Earlier this week, Trump announced that he would be putting an end to a longstanding tradition where former President Barack Obama would honor Mexico through a Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House.
According to reports, Trump decided to axe the 16-year-old tradition and will hold a much smaller celebration elsewhere.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The reported modification of the White House celebration of the Mexican holiday was initially revealed by Spanish-language media outlet La Opinion, which noted that there had been no official announcement of any change in plans and cited unnamed government sources. The White House did not respond to requests for comment, according to The Hill.
Hispanic activists weren’t pleased.
“The decision of the White House to renounce the celebration of Cinco de Mayo is another slap for many Mexican Americans and Latinos,” complained Felix Sanchez, co-founder and president of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts. “Instead of embracing our nation’s multicultural heritage, we are deepening divisions, not looking for common ground.”
However, Trump doesn’t hate Mexicans or their holidays, he just doesn’t see any reason to throw a massive celebration.
Does anyone remember this tweet?
