Goya foods have become a staple for those who support President Trump.
Their CEO refused to capitulate to the Left, and instead praised the President.
And the CEO of Goya just trolled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez so hard she didn’t know how to respond.
Democrats think they own Latino voters.
But in reality, Republicans are making massive gains in their communities, with Florida being won largely due to massive Latino support for President Trump.
So it shouldn’t be surprising that major figures in the Latino community showed their public support for President Trump.
Goya CEO Robert Unanue is perhaps the most high-profile to do just that.
As Obama’s former HUD Secretary Julian Castro said while attacking Unanue, Goya “has been a staple of so many Latino households for generations.”
So it was a shock to the Left when Unanue spoke at the White House to praise President Trump, stating, “We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.”
In response, Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a boycott attempt against the company.
Oh look, it’s the sound of me Googling “how to make your own Adobo” https://t.co/YOScAcyAnC

That boycott didn’t work.
Supporters of President Trump hit the grocery stores in response, and bought tons of Goya products.
Grocery store shelves across the country were left barren of Goya products as the company was forced to try to keep up.
And during that time, it turns out that the Goya CEO was celebrating, and very thankful for Ocasio-Cortez’s boycott attempt.
During an interview on the Michael Berry Show, he praised the socialist personally.
“We still have to chat with AOC; I love her,” Unanue continued. “She was actually our Employee of the Month; I don’t know if you know about this, but when she boycotted us, our sales actually increased 1,000%. So we gave her an honorary – we never were able to hand it to her but she got Employee of the Month for bringing attention to Goya and our adobo. Actually our sales of adobo did very well after she said ‘Make your own Adobo.’”
While he does love the response to her boycott attempt, he did go after her for going “against her own people.”
“It’s interesting that AOC was one of the first people to step in line to boycott Goya,” Unanue said. “go against her own people, as supposedly a Puerto Rican woman, to go against people of her own Latin culture. She’s naïve.”
