Diego Reyna — a construction worker living in Canada — posted a picture to Facebook Saturday showing the Mexican flag he placed atop of Trump Tower in Vancouver Saturday.
According to the Daily Dot, the flag only stayed up for a few minutes, but that was plenty of time for Reyna to snap a quick photo.
“Why did I put a Mexican flag on the roof top of Trump Tower Vancouver?” reads the caption. “Because from the concrete pouring, finishing, drywall, taping, wood forming and general labour, Mexicans were there, building it, doing good work.”
“The comments Trump has made about us, did not stop us from doing the high quality work we have always done, in our home country or when we migrate to the US/Canada,” Reyna continued. “Mr. Trump, we did our best work, your tower here in Vancouver is premium quality, and we were a crucial part of it, not just Mexicans but immigrants as a whole, like your ancestors were, you are not Native American.”
“The insults you have said about us, have not changed our work ethics. While working on your tower, Mexicans didn’t steal anything nor raped anyone. We just did the best work we could possibly do, for my ourselves, our families and the future tenants in your building.”
Reyna further wrote that he hopes his post will gather enough shares “so it can get to Mr. Trump’s news feed.”
So far, the photo has been shared nearly 4,000 times.
