#Goyaway: Calls To Boycott Goya Foods After CEO Praises President Trump

Updated 1:25 a.m. ET Friday

Twitter users are calling for a boycott of Goya Foods, a brand most known for its Hispanic-staple food offerings, after the CEO of the company lavished praise on President Trump during a Thursday visit to the White House.

Robert Unanue, chief executive of the family-owned operation since 2004, said the country was "blessed" to have Trump at the helm, during remarks following a roundtable with Hispanic business and political leaders from across the country.

"We're all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder," Unanue said during the Rose Garden speech.

"We have an incredible builder. And we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president, and we pray for our country — that we will continue to prosper and to grow."

Unanue also announced a plan, along with some partners, to donate 1 million cans of Goya chickpeas and 1 million pounds of food to food banks.

A statement issued late Thursday by Goya Foods did not address the negative reaction from some in the Hispanic community to Unanue's White House appearance and praise of Trump.

In the statement, Unanue reiterated his support for the president's Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, which Trump established by executive order at the White House roundtable.

"Our country faces a time of historic challenge but we will meet that challenge together and continue to work towards greatness, focus on a strong recovery, and hold onto the hope for a healthier future for all," Unanue said in the statement.

Trump has maintained a tenuous relationship with much of the Hispanic community since his first campaign speech for the presidency, in which he described Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and "criminals."

Unanue, a third-generation Spanish American, enraged many with his remarks at the White House, including some high-profile Democrats who also signaled that they would no longer support Goya's products.

"Oh look, it's the sound of me Googling 'how to make your own Adobo,' " Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Thursday evening, referencing the popular seasoning.

Julián Castro, a fellow Democrat, also said Americans should "think twice" before buying Goya products.

By Thursday evening, "Goya," #BoycottGoya and #Goyaway were trending topics on Twitter.

Just another example of the tolerant left going after a company because the CEO said some nice words about the President. Never mind the fact that he also worked with Barack and Michelle Obama when asked and never said a disparaging word about either of them.

Then we have our resident moron from the US Congress (I know, there are many morons in that body, but in this case it is AOC) essentially proposing a boycott of this company. This is the same idiot that killed 25,000 potential jobs in her own district, trying to shut down a company that employees thousands of workers, just because she doesn't like Trump.

Add to that failed Presidential candidate Julian Castro also calling for a boycott. And who says that the Democrats don't want to shut down the economy?

Anyone who thinks that "we are blessed" to have Trump as president is an enemy of rational thought. People can spend their money as they choose, but I'm certainly not giving Goya another penny.

And there he is, the embodiment of the Left in this country. They will gladly shut down a company and put thousands of people out of work just to pacify their own feelings. Never mind that this same CEO worked with the Obama administration when asked and said similar things in regards to the President. Any and everyone that doesn't fall into line with their demented way of thinking, must be punished and publicly shamed.

That's tolerance for you!

Proof that the article is biased,

That is a false statement, it is missing the words "some" and "illegal". As in some illegal Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals.
The article's author should be sued for libel.

What about in 5 months or 4 years 5 months when there is a different president that Goya praises?

I understand that most here don't agree, but Trump is a genuinely evil piece of garbage who represents the absolute worst aspects of this country and there is no way in hell that I am going to support anyone publicly praising him. I think Goya can survive without the dollar or two my daughter occasionally spends on their chick peas.
