Ortiz calls Trump’s comments on Latinos a ‘slap in the face’

BOSTON (WHDH) - David Ortiz spoke about Donald Trump in an interview with USA Today, calling the Republican presidential candidate’s comments on Latinos a “slap in the face.”

“I walk around sometimes, and I see Mexican people trying to earn a living in an honest way,” said Ortiz. “And to hear somebody make those kinds of comments, it hits you.”

Ortiz said while he does not know a lot about politics, Trump’s comments about building a wall and calling Mexicans “rapists” did not sit well with him.

“I think, as Latin people, we deserve better.”
