SIOUX CITY | One year ago, Donald Trump was pleased to commemorate Cinco de Mayo, the May 5 celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
Trump chose to send a tweet with a smiling photo of himself about to eat a taco salad bowl in his office at Trump Tower, with the phrase "I love Hispanics!"
The tweeted photo caused a furor, with people citing the president having a poor grasp of how to highlight Mexican culture. One day later, Trump in a "Fox & Friends" interview defended his tweet.
"As of yesterday, I had 59,000 re-tweets, 59,000 re-tweets in the short period of what — that's got to be some kind of a record," said Trump, who went on to win the presidency in November. "People loved it."
