NEW YORK (AP) -- Goya Foods is facing a swift backlash after its CEO praised President Donald Trump at White House event.
"We all truly blessed, at the same time, to have have a leader like President Trump who is a builder," Unanue said standing at a podium beside Trump.
As clips of Unanues remarks circulated on social media Thursday, Latinos and longtime supporters of Goyas food slammed the CEOs commendation of Trump, citing the presidents incendiary rhetoric and controversial policies aimed at minority communities and immigrants. By early Friday, Goya was still a top trending term on Twitter along with the hashtags #Goyaway and #BoycottGoya as a number of public figures, and Democrats such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) and former presidential candidate Julián Castro, criticized Unanue a third-generation Spanish American for praising Trump.
Former presidential candidate Julian Castro was among those to take to Twitter, saying Unanue praised someone who villainizes Goya's customer base.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York said she would learn to make from scratch some of the Latin cuisine that Goya makes.
Goya recently donated thousands of pounds of food to families in the Bronx and Harlem who have been affected by COVID-19. The company also made a big donation to a public school in Queens.

The POS's at AP (this post) did slightly better job than the ChiCom author at the Compost. The AP article mentions the fact that Goya recently donated food to those in NY - last paragraph of course.
Actually, both are pimping the boycott and neglect the true impact that Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue is making. Unanue is donating over a million cans garbanzos and a million pounds of food to food banks to aid those left unemployed or homeless by the "massive government COVID-19 hoax" (my words). Some people do and build for a living. Other's are just commie pieces of schiff that confiscate from the productive, loot, riot, burn and raze businesses. Castro and AOC need to be called out and cancelled. ¡Permanentemente! ¡Es necesario colgar estos pedazos de mierda por ser traidores!
Crazy Cortez probably has a trouble boiling water
wonder how many are hate RATS that are doing the posts?
This is good for Trump. Such “boycotts” will not only not work but they will add to the Hispanic participation in the backlash against the Marxist Democrats.
I’ll make it a point to go Goya when I can on groceries.
was just thinking the same thing. They have some decent products, so its not going to be difficult.
Associated Press engages in boilerplate hate speech and disgorges DNC talking points.
Partisan Media Shills update.
I doubt that she has the ability or ambition to do such a thing.
What’s the ticker for Goya ?
See, if you are a racist democrat, EVERYBODY who is your black, or who is your Mexican (surname) is owned by you and MUST vote religiously your party! And to a proper statist democrat, “Thou Shalt Vote Blue” is more religiously followed than any other religion, is the only religion allowed outside Sharia.
(Of course, Christianity or males or women are excluded from ANY rights if they support the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Third Amendment ...)
Goya oh boya!
Give it a few days to see if he stands by his statements.
Anybody see the movie Trumbo? This sort of thing reminds me of it. Hedda Hopper doesn’t like this.
That is actually what we are seeing the left do to individuals and businesses today. They are channeling Hedda.
“A strong supporter of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) hearings, Hopper named suspected communists and was a major proponent of the Hollywood blacklist.”
A form of attempted (and often successful) blacklisting is exactly what we are seeing today. And the MSM is knee deep in it. Or neck deep.
She should try growing her own nopalitos in her DC apartment.
#BuyGoya now trending on Twitter.
The Democrats are overdoing their hate for Trump because in doing so theyre showing their true hatred for America! Theyve been exposed. All those moderate RATs who will try to distance themselves as Antifa, BLM and the rest of the radicals get even more crazy as we head closer to the election needs to have this crap attached to them. Theyre all guilty by association as far as Im concerned! The Democrat Party is Americas only TRUE enemy! Anyone with a D by their name is an enemy of this country!
This Goyim supports Goya.
Dear AOC, good luck trying to make Tacos al Pastor from scratch.
She could ask her food delivery service if they use Goya products.
