Florida Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez, believes that President Donald Trump’s approval rating within the Latino community causing losses for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in the state.
“You have a president that has delivered, has kept his promises and has really authored a great chapter in terms of [record-low] Latino unemployment … homeownership on the rise,” Nuñez said, according to Fox News on Sept. 13.
In contrast, Biden does not represent Latino values and has not campaigned in Florida, Nuñez noted.
“Latinos care about faith, they care about family, and they care about freedom,” she said. “And Joe Biden doesn’t stand for any of those things,” Nuñez said.
Nuñez also warned that Biden’s plans to raise taxes on families to 80 percent and to defund police displeases the Latino community.
“Latinos do not want to see their families in peril when they go out the door, when they go to restaurants they don’t want to be accosted by rioters,” Nuñez said.
Nuñez spoke at the Republican National Convention on Aug. 25 and in her speech, she rejected the socialist agenda being pushed by the Democratic Party, led by Biden.
“The radical left systematically chisels away at the freedoms we cherish. They peddle dangerous ideologies, cower to global progressives, and normalize socialism to dismantle our Constitution,” Nuñez, said, according to the Miami Herald.
Nuñez, of Cuban origin, recalled how her parents fled Cuba because of Fidel Castro in 1959 “when the Castro regime abolished religious freedom. She also co-chairs the National Coalition of Latinos for Trump.”
During the Republican National Convention, Nuñez praised some of President Trump’s achievements, who is also campaigning to continue leading the White House for a second four-year term.
“President Donald Trump has put America first. His pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda has ushered in historically low unemployment record job creation, higher wages, and rising homeownership,” Nuñez reiterated, according to Miami Herald.
