A man in Virginia has already raised more than $100,000 to purchase and donate Goya food products after the CEO faced a liberal boycott for praising President Trump at the White House.
“The GoFundMe page, created by Casey Harper, a producer for conservative political commentator Eric Bolling, has raised more than $115,000 since it was first launched over the weekend. The page, which calls on patrons to ‘support Trump & feed the hungry,’ initially had a goal of $10,000,” reports The Hill.
“What if we rise up to say no to cancel culture AND feed the hungry at the same time?” the author writes.

From Fox News:
“We were part of a commission called the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative and they called on us to be there to see how we could help opportunities within the economic and educational realm for prosperity among Hispanics and among the United States,” Unanue told “Fox & Friends.”
Politicians and celebrities are boycotting Goya, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the country, after its CEO, Robert Unanue, praised President Donald Trump during an event Thursday at the White House.
“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” said Unanue, who is of Spanish descent, at the event.
Trump hosted Hispanic leaders at the White House on Thursday and signed an executive order on the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative to use more taxpayer support for private and charter schools and “improve access by Hispanic Americans to education and economic opportunities.”
