Kimberly Guilfoyle—Donald Trump Jr.'s girlfriend who was also subsequently hired as a senior campaign advisor to President Donald Trump—gave an interview on Wednesday, May 6, during which she made some pretty hard-to-defend statements.
During the interview, Guilfoyle claimed:
"Latinos have never done better than under President Trump."

Unfortunately there were just a couple past incidents that got in the way of Guilfoyle's point.

@thehill She must be referring to the ones who didn't spend time in cages. #givemeabreak— Megan Karasch (@Megan Karasch)1588781150.0
President Trump and the Latinx community have not always seen eye to eye.
@thehill Oh yeah, because we like being called criminals and rapists, and seeing our brethren locked in cages being treated like animals.— Nita (@Nita)1588785352.0

@LALewman Why is it that the Racists always feel they have the right to speak for those that they oppress! It is insane.!— SEER METATRON (@SEER METATRON)1588783155.0
Though Trump's benefits from the economic upturn created by President Obama gave him some good early numbers, his mishandling of the recent pandemic left a lot of those gains behind.
@LALewman She must mean when president doom helped PR by throwing paper towels at us. https://t.co/gzqfha5lw3— BobbieNYC (formerly JaneFoster_Thor)🇵🇷 🇸🇳 🇪🇸 (@BobbieNYC (formerly JaneFoster_Thor)🇵🇷 🇸🇳 🇪🇸)1588783347.0
Trump literally began his campaign by attacking the Latinx community.
@thehill Kimberly remind us how much you are paid each and every month for saying sh.. like this— Dorothy (@Dorothy)1588780922.0
Many felt Guilfoyle's claim would be better framed as a hilarious joke.

It's also worth remembering that Guilfoyle would never have a job at the White House if she wasn't dating a member of the President's family.
@thehill Tell us again what qualifies this woman to advise Americans on any topic much less one like this?— Alane (@Alane)1588782696.0
Despite these innumerable offenses against the Latinx community, Trump is confident they will vote for him in November.
Once the election arrives, the President will get to see whether Guilfoyle is correct.
