I'm 22 years old. I am a college student. I am a female. I am Mexican. I am a Republican through and through. When I tell people this, they seem shocked. Here's why it's hard being a Hispanic Trump supporter in 2020.
1. "You're joking, right?"
When I say "Trump 2020," most people that don't know me well will laugh because they think it's a joke. When I tell them I'm not joking, they ask me how I can support a man that "hates" people like me. Well, he doesn't. Democrats and the media just twist everything.
2. "So you agree with keeping your own people locked in cages?"
No, I don't. That's the thing about politics, you won't always agree with your candidate. There is never a perfect candidate or president. Take it or leave it.
3. "So then does that mean you want to abolish ICE?"
Nope. ICE is actually doing something to keep us safe. My parents came over to the USA legally after waiting years, other families can do that too. If you do something illegal, expect to get the consequences of it.
4. "So you're a racist and hate women, right?"
This makes me laugh. Again, the media and liberals brainwashing everyone. I think Donald Trump actually does a lot to help women and BIPOC. Do your research.
Simple question, OK. Why? Because I hold my values close to my heart. I love our country. I love life. I love the military. I don't support BLM because all lives matter — including the preborn. I will stand for the flag and anyone that doesn't need to re-evaluate what the word respect means.
