It seems as though presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump, angering Latinos doesn’t stop.
On Wednesday evening, in an event organized by the League of United Latin American Citizens, about two dozen protesters gathered behind metal barricades opposite NBC headquarters at Rockefeller Center in New York to demand that the network rescind an invitation that Mr. Trump had accepted to host “Saturday Night Live” this week, according to NYTimes.
Many chanted “Dump Trump” and “Fight back.” There were placards reading “S.N.L. stop the hate.” Some wore costumes, including a man appearing as a cartoon-style plutocrat, replete with a black top hat and a papier-mâché mask featuring eyeballs emblazoned with dollar signs.
Juan Sanchez, a translator from Midtown Manhattan, was in the protests and believes that Mr. Trump, racial views aside, might be driven by ego.
“It’s all ‘I do, I do, me, me, me, myself, myself,’ ” said Sanchez. “I don’t think America deserves that kind of leadership.”
Xiomara Santos is an intern with the League of United Latin American Citizens. Santos believes that Mr. Trump seemed most interested in spreading negativity and that it’ll be a an awful idea for NBC to provide him with yet another platform.
Around 6:30 p.m. several protesters walked slowly across West 49th Street holding a cardboard box that they said contained a flash drive bearing 522,080 signatures to a petition demanding that NBC revoke Mr. Trump’s invitation.
