MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff interviewed Latino Trump voters one year after the election and discovered that many are thrilled with how the president is running the country.


Perhaps expecting the Latino Trump supporters regret their vote, Soboroff seemed somewhat surprised when a Latino radio host and his listeners had nothing but praise for Trump.

“Are you still happy with the way that you voted and the way that he’s doing?” Soboroff asked the radio host.

“Yes, especially in the economy,” he responded. “We are growing at 3.1 percent.”

“What surprised me most when I was here last time, so many of your listeners called in and said to me, ‘it doesn’t matter that I’m Latino, it doesn’t matter that Donald Trump has insulted so many members of my race,'” Soboroff recalled. “I wanna know, a year later, do people out there, do your listeners feel the same way?”

“I feel way way way better with this president than before he was president,” one listener said. “I will vote for him again.”

Soboroff asked a listener how he felt about Trump ending DACA, and the listener countered that Trump did not specifically end DACA, but allowed it to expire under Obama’s rule.

“I voted for Donald Trump … and at this point in my life I am not sorry,” a female listener said. “I am very proud of Donald Trump to be my president.”
