Washington, D.C.–President Trump met with members of the Hispanic community this afternoon and signed an executive order establishing the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative and Interagency Working Group. Latino Victory Fund president & CEO Nathalie Rayes issued the following statement in response:

“Trump’s Hispanic Prosperity Initiative is political theater, a cruel trick designed to gloss over the fact that he has failed the Latino community. One executive order will not erase the damage he’s done to Latinos–thousands of children separated from families, millions at risk of losing their healthcare, a nearly 18 percent unemployment rate, and the highest infection and mortality Covid-19 rate, to name a few. Latino voters won’t be manipulated by Trump’s lies, but we will vote him out in November.”
