Canadian Worker Flies Mexican Flag on Trump Building
Va nc ouver : A Mexic a nborn Canadian construction worker said he hung Mexico’s flag atop Vancouver’s Trump International Hotel and Tower over the weekend to remind the billionaire who built the tower.Diego Reyna walked up 40 flights of stairs and recorded a 43-second video that said the building wouldn’t exist without immigrants. “It was a symbolic act,” Reyna said on Tuesday. “When you say everyone in my family, my teachers, my children yet to be born are criminals and rapists, it is time to take a proactive effort.”
In the video, he said Mexicans performed everything from drywall to concrete finishing on the project. During his campaign for the Republican president i a l nomination, Trump has been criticised for saying Mexican immigrants are bringing crime and drugs to the US and are “rapists.”
“This building is standing here today thanks to us, to our work,” he said. “There’s a little present for Mr Trump, so every time you judge us you can think who is building your towers.”
Reyna, 30, said in a separate Facebook post that Mexicans didn’t steal or rape but just did the best work they possibly could.
