Mana's Fher Olvera to Donald Trump: 'Don't Be Naive, People Aren't Stupid'
After Donald Trump's speech in Ohio earlier this week, where he told Latino voters to "give him a chance," Maná's frontman Fher Olvera took to Twitter to give the Republican presidential nominee a message: "Don't be naive, people aren't stupid."
The "De pies a cabeza" singer continued his message writing that Trump only said these things because he's behind in the polls, not because he actually meant it.
"Look at Trump now, changing his message towards undocumented immigrants in the U.S. So weird, right? He's actually behind on the polls now but during a very long time, he didn't care about offending and demeaning all the Mexicans and Latinos that have worked hard in the U.S."
Olvera ended his message by asking all Latinos to go out and vote in November.
"You have already made your racist comments clear. Without the Latino vote, you will not be president. What I mean is that 'it's easier for you to reach the sun than to become president of the United States.' All Latinos in the U.S., go out and make your vote count."
On Sept. 9, Maná will kick of its Latino Power tour, which is billed as a call to vote for Latinos nationwide.
"We have baptized our new tour ‘Latino Power,’ because with the strength of their collective vote this year, U.S. Latinos can further empower our community -- demanding more respect and effecting real change in the living conditions and opportunities for our people," the band said earlier this year.
The U.S. trek will take Maná to key markets including Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.
