Mixed martial arts fighter Jorge Masvidal has made it clear that he stands fully behind President Trump in the 2020 elections. 

Masvidal had some harsh criticisms of Joe Biden and the Democratic party.

“The Democrats just think that they’re entitled to the Latino vote. They think that we just have to hand it over to them,” he said. “That’s right. We sure as hell don’t.”

Last week Masvidal joined Donald Trump Jr., U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio at a Fighters Against Socialism rally where they were joined by other UFC fighters and a large crowd.

“They gotta show us what they can do for us — what they can do for our communities,” he said. “We’re not gonna buy the same ‘woof tickets’ and false promises that destroyed great countries like Venezuela and Cuba. It’s not gonna happen.” Fox News reported.

Masvidal then attacked Biden for playing despacito on his phone to pander to Latino voters.

“You know what else is not gonna work for them?” Masvidal said of Biden and the Democrats. “Playing ‘Despacito’ on your cellphone to pander to us. Hell no. You gotta give us some credit for having heads on our shoulders.”

Trump 2020 Campaign official Steve Cortes elaborated the point on a Twitter video.

“Biden panders to Hispanics. He did play ‘Despacito’ on his phone in a truly cringe-inducing moment. But who delivers real, tangible results?” Cortes wrote

“Under George W. Bush, one, uno month under 5%,” Cortes said. “How many under Obama and Biden? Zero. Big goose egg. How many under President Trump? Twenty-six. Twenty-six months under 5% jobless rate for Hispanic Americans. That’s real prosperity.”

Biden has been further criticized for calling Latino voters more diverse than Black voters.

“Now what I mean full diversity, unlike the African American community and many other communities, you’re from everywhere,” Biden explained. “You’re from Europe, from the tip of South America, all the way to our border in Mexico, and the Caribbean. And different backgrounds, different ethnicities, but all Latinos. We’re gonna get a chance to do that if we win in November.”

Masvidal believes the choice for voters in this year’s election is a clear one: “We either re-elect President Trump and keep America great,” he said, “or we let Joe Biden destroy the greatest country the world has ever seen.”

Now, I’m a professional athlete and I’ve been one for most of my life so I’ve always seen things through a sports lens. That makes Donald Trump our head coach and before the global pandemic, we were winning Super Bowls.

And when you’re winning Super Bowls, you don’t fire the coach. It doesn’t matter if you don’t like the plays he runs, the players he puts on the field, or what he says on Twitter.

You sure as hell don’t replace him for another coach who’s been in the business for 47 years at every level and never won a f—ing game.” Fox News Reported
