‘100% Republican’ — Cuban Americans high on Trump as 2020 ramps up in Florida

4

Perhaps no other ethnic group in the United States understand how dangerous the Democrat Party has become than Cuban Americans. In fact, the current front runner of the Democrat Party has openly embraced the brutal Castro Regime. As such, expect Cuban Americans (particularly in Florida) to vote for President Trump in droves this November. #Trump2020

‘100% Republican’ — Cuban Americans high on Trump as 2020 ramps up in Florida

By Washington Examiner, March 3, 2020:

“Cien por ciento Republicano,” a worker on the factory floor shouted to Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart as he toured a local manufacturer of industrial, walk-in coolers and freezers.

Translated, the Amerikooler employee was telling the congressman that he is “100% Republican.” It’s a common refrain here in this mostly Cuban American, working-class city of about 240,000 in the heart of Miami-Dade County that is dotted with modest single-story homes, strip mall,s and warehouses — and dominated by Americans whose primary language is Spanish.

Part of a broader, Republican-leaning diaspora community that has proliferated throughout South Florida and spawned generations of native-born Americans since the rise of the Castro dictatorship decades ago, Cuban Americans are fervent backers of President Trump, attracted by his economic policies, stance against Cuba, and especially the perception that he is an unabashed patriot.

Cuban Americans are a critical component of the Trump coalition in this 2020 battleground, which by itself could hold the keys to his reelection.

“I love Trump,” said Nereida Queiros, 74, a Republican voter who spoke to the Washington Examiner during a “comedor” — a regular luncheon for low-income, Cuban American seniors at the Wilde Community Center in Hialeah. Comedors, particularly at Wilde, are must-visits for politicians hunting for votes in this community.

Queiros, who supervises programs for seniors at the center, has lived in the United States for 50 years but still speaks in broken, heavily accented English and required a translator for portions of this interview, conducted as Diaz-Balart, a ninth-term Republican, checked in with his constituents, seniors who gathered for lunch and conversation.

“He’s doing what he has to do for this country,” Queiros said, explaining an enthusiasm for Trump that has been unaffected by immigration and refugee policies that Americans of other Hispanic ethnicities have derided as hostile or even prejudiced. “He says straight — he [doesn’t] think political. He say what he feel.”

According to Florida exit polling from the 2016 presidential contest, Trump captured at least 54% of the Cuban-American vote, which accounted for 6% of the statewide electorate. That was not insignificant in a contest with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton that Trump won by 1.2 percentage points, a tight margin typical for this swing state over the past two decades.

Cuban Americans are high-intensity voters — they show up, making the Republican advantage with this bloc important.

Cubans for Trump held a massive rally in Miami.These patriotic Americans are Bernie Sanders’ worst nightmare.It’s a shame the media doesn’t ask them for their opinion of socialism!
