TAMPA, Florida (PNN) - October 14, 2020 - Top UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal offered a full-throated endorsement of President Donald Trump and urged fellow Hispanic voters to do the same in a speech that has gone ultra-viral.
Masvidal, a Miami resident of Cuban and Peruvian heritage, joined Donald Trump, Jr. on a recent “Fighters Against Socialism” stump tour across South Florida to rally support for the president’s reelection bid.
“The Democrats think they’re just entitled to the Latino vote. They think we have to just hand it over to them,” Masvidal said in a clip that has been viewed over 4 million times since being posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
“We’re not going to buy the same woof tickets and false promises that destroyed great countries like Venezuela and Cuba. It’s not going to happen. You know what else is not going to work for them? Playing Despacito on their cell phone to pander to us.”
Quoting Barack Obama, Masvidal asserted, “Elections have consequences. That is true. Those words have never been more true than they are today.”
Masvidal, also known as “Gambred,” says his father escaped Communist Cuba on a raft made from tractor tires.
“Since I was about knee-high, I’ve been hearing about the horrors of communism and socialism,” Masvidal said. “We either re-elect President Trump and (make) Amerika great again, or we elect Joe Biden and the radical Left takes us down the slippery slopes of socialism and misery.”
