Latin Grammys Ask Donald Trump to ‘Discontinue His Affront’ on Latinos

In the wake of Donald Trump’s slew of negative comments about the United States’ Latino population, Latin Recording Academy President and CEO Gabriel Abaroa Jr. has released a statement condemning Trump’s “affront” on the country’s Latino residents.

Whether you’re talking about Mexico, South America, Central America, Spain or Portugal, Latin culture has been so beautifully intertwined into American culture that it is almost imperceptible to recognize the benefits of that integration,” Abaroa said. “Nonetheless, we should not take for granted the countless contributions Latinos make to American culture. Given his recent statements, Mr. Trump needs a respectful reminder of that fact.
