It’s been a crazy day for tacos after Latinos for Trump founder Marco Gutierrez went on MSNBC’s “All in With Chris Hayes” Thursday to say that a White House without Donald Trump would mean, of all things, more taco trucks.
The discussion came a day after Trump’s meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and a much-awaited speech on immigration. During his speech in Arizona, he had strong words for undocumented immigrants, specifically those he described as criminals. “Their days have run out in this country. The crime will stop. They’re going to be gone. It will be over. They’re going out. They’re going out fast,” he said.
Gutierrez, who is a Mexican immigrant, defended Trump’s stance on immigration, and said restrictions need to be tighter because Mexican culture is causing problems.
“My culture is a very dominant culture and it’s imposing and it’s causing problems,” he said. “If you don’t do something about it, you’re gonna have taco trucks every corner.”
What did social media have to say about a future with tacos ruling? The comments brought out some hilarious responses:

On a more serious note, all this taco truck talk brought up some points about the American economy:

But all this talk really just serves as a reminder for one thing:
Today would be a good day to have tacos for lunch.
