Taco Truck Owner Racks Up Sales At Trump Event In Detroit

"That's so true."

Donald Trump's visit to an African American church in Detroit brought both cheers and protests Saturday — but one of the star attractions was a taco truck. One of the humble vehicles, which now straddle the worlds of political symbol and internet meme, was parked outside.


The Tacos El Caballo truck set up near Great Faith Ministries International to provide a counterpoint to critics of U.S. immigration policy, its owners told Michigan Public Radio's Rick Pluta.


Nancy Paz, who immigrated from Mexico, tells Pluta that she parked her family's taco truck near the church Trump visited on Detroit's west side Saturday in the hope that the Republican presidential candidate might glimpse it on his way in.


"Because Donald say the Mexican people, they doesn't work," Paz told Pluta. "We come here to say, yes, we work hard, for the family."


The truck did brisk business this morning — so much so that a form of surge pricing kicked in, raising the price for a steak, pork, or chicken taco from $1.50 to $2.50, Pluta reports.


Inside the church, Trump delivered a short speech that mentioned discrimination and the marginalization of young black men; he also stressed the importance of family.


While his arrival had been met with protesters holding "Dump Trump" signs, during his speech, Trump was cheered and applauded several times — particularly when he announced he would quote the Bible's 1 John, chapter 4. After reading a verse aloud that reflects on the goal of loving each another, he pronounced, "That's so true."


"As his remarks ended, church leaders then placed a Jewish prayer shawl upon Trump's shoulders," the Detroit Free Press reports.


Separately, Trump also spoke to Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, pastor of Great Faith Ministries, for an interview on Jackson's Impact television network.


The hashtag #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner became wildly popular after Marco Gutierrez, who was born in Mexico and co-founded Latinos for Trump, said about immigration rates on MSNBC, "If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks [on] every corner."


That audacious statement set off discussions on Twitter and elsewhere about a vision of the future that seems like a dream to some, and is [purportedly] a nightmare to others.




The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."
