Protesters build “wall” of taco trucks outside Trump’s hotel in Las Vegas

taco-trucksNevada’s Culinary Union is protesting against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump by creating a mock barrier outside his Las Vegas hotel ahead of the third and final presidential debate.

 

The “wall” included several food trucks ― including the taco trucks that a Trump supporter once warned could be “on every corner” if the GOP nominee loses in November.

 

The hundred or so gathered chanted “Dump Trump” and “Make America Great Again – start here!”

 

The trucks then handed out tacos.

 

The union represents more than 50,000 workers in Nevada, and the Trump hotel is one of the very few on the Las Vegas Strip that does not have union-negotiated contracts for its workers.

 

Culinary Workers Union 226 political director Yvanna Cancela told the media that, they did not come up with the idea of building the wall but it was Donald Trump himself, who came up with the idea. They want to show Trump that walls cannot divide them. He also included that, Muslims, women, immigrants and workers all are united in this battle. They are all coming together to make sure that Donald Trump never becomes the President.

 

Last month, the union launched a campaign calling on supporters to boycott all Trump businesses, a bid to bring hotel management to the negotiating table.

 

The groups also organized about 40 taco trucks to register voters in Las Vegas, where about a third of the population is Hispanic.

 

Until recently, Trump has repeatedly said that, if elected, he would build a “great wall” on the southern border of the US to keep out immigrants — and make Mexico pay for it.
