Trump in Arizona. The president of the United States, Donald Trump, visited the state of Arizona on Monday in search of the support of voters Latinos, assuring that the United States will not be “another Venezuela” and strongly criticizing his opponent, the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, Joe Biden.

To Biden, the President Trump accused of wanting to hand over the country to anarchist groups that want to withdraw funds from police departments.

Trump stated that many Latino businesses have been affected by protests against police violence that have taken place across the country, supported in agreement with Trump by Democratic mayors and governors.

During an event organized by Latinos for Trump in Phoenix, the president pledged to “take care” and “not disappoint” Latinos.

The president said he was pleased with the results of the polls that according to him favor him among the Latino community, although he did not give further details.

This is Trump’s fifth visit to Arizona this year, but the first focused on the Latino community.

The president participated in a round table with representatives of the Latino community, including several business owners and members of the law enforcement agencies.

It is estimated that 32 million Latinos nationwide will be eligible to vote on November 3.

Of these, a little more than one million reside in Arizona, which represents about 24 percent of the total electorate in this state.

During the event, Trump highlighted the achievements of his Administration that have benefited the Latino community, among which he cited a low unemployment rate, as well as the highest rates in recent years of Latinos who are buying homes.

He took the opportunity to criticize Biden by assuring that in the last 47 years, the former vice president has “failed” the Latino community and that he has “sent” his work to China.

Trump’s visit to Arizona is part of a tour of the president through several western states, with the purpose of seeking the support of the Latino electorate with the help of groups such as Latinos for Trump.

“I love Latinos, I will never let them down,” Trump assured those present.

It is a complicated challenge, especially when many Latinos do not forget Trump’s first words when he announced his campaign for the Presidency in 2016, when he said that many Mexican immigrants were “rapists.”

Among the attendees was Arturo “Arte” Moreno, the first Mexican American to own a professional baseball franchise, Los Angeles de Anaheim in California.

Moreno recounted how he achieved his “American dream”, and defended what he said is the right of Latinos to vote and re-elect Trump as president of the United States.

Those present praised Trump’s work to sign the new United States-Mexico-Canada Free Trade Agreement (T-MEC).

Trump has been heavily criticized by politicians and members of the Latino community for his harsh immigration policies of the past four years, including the separation of families at the border, his obsession with building a border wall with Mexico, and his attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Critics are like Regina Romero, Tucson’s first Latina mayor, who called Trump’s attempts to win the Latino vote “hypocrisy.”

“Actions and words have consequences, especially here in Arizona,” Romero said in statements sent to Efe.

For his part, former Vice President Biden reacted to the president’s visit to the state of Arizona by stating that the Republican president intentionally misled Americans about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic and that even today, he does not have a plan to contain it.

“People from all walks of life are suffering under his failed leadership, from small business owners trying to keep their doors open and their employees on payroll, to parents struggling with a difficult and chaotic start to the school year. and Latinos in Arizona bear a disproportionate burden, ”Biden said in a news release.

Arizona, a traditionally Republican state, is considered key to defining who will occupy the White House for the next four years.

A poll released Sunday by OH Predictive Insights gives former Vice President Joe Biden a ten-point lead over Trump, something that political analysts say worries the Republican president’s campaign.

The survey has a margin of error of four points.

According to The Hill, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had a small lead over President Trump in the battlefield state of Arizona and has a greater than nine-point lead in Minnesota, according to a new poll released Sunday.

Biden is backed by 47 percent of likely voters in Arizona, compared to 44 percent for Trump, according to the CBS News poll released Sunday.

Biden’s three-point lead is within the poll’s margin of error.
