President Trump rode to the rescue of the owners of a Mexican restaurant in Arizona who were attacked on social media after they were spotted at a KAG2020 rally in Phoenix last week.
Betty Rivas, who owns Sammy’s Mexican Grill with her husband Jorge, had the audacity to attend a KAG2020 rally in Phoenix last week to support President Trump.
That prompted vile attacks on Social Media, as well as phone calls from the liberal mob after a picture of Betty Rivas wearing a “Latinos for Trump” was posted to a Facebook group.
“Very ugly stuff. They are saying nasty stuff about the restaurant,” owner Jorge Rivas said Friday, a day after he and his wife posted a video on Facebook defending their rights as “naturalized American citizens” to vote, support and meet whomever they please.
“Just because we are Latinos, it doesn’t mean that we have to feel like every other Latino in this country,” Rivas said in the video. “We are individuals and we feel that we have the constitutional right to meet and support whoever we want.”
The Rivas Also Received Some Very Nasty Phone Calls.
This isn’t the first time the Rivas faced hatred for their support of Donald Trump, they had a similar problem in 2016 when they also supported OUR President.
The unhinged left even resorted to some vandalism at their restaurant, in addition to the verbal harassment.
Rivas says the people in the area know them, so it’s not had too big an impact on the restaurant.
Jorge Rivas said they had a few bad days, but then had a “very good Saturday,” but none of the liberal harassment it isn’t going to make them change their mind about supporting President Trump or run them out of business.
On Sunday, the Rivas received a huge boost to the business – an endorsement from the President of the United States himself, Donald J. Trump:
The food is GREAT at Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona. Congratulations to Betty & Jorge Rivas on doing such a wonderful job. I will try hard to stop by the next time I am in Phoenix. Support Sammy’s! @foxandfriends

The Rivas Posted A Video Addressing The Leftist Hate
Meet Jorge and Betty Rivas, the owners of Sammy’s Mexican Grill.
They love President @realdonaldtrump. They were attacked in 2016 over their support of our President.
They were attacked again just over a week ago for attending his rally.
