Construction worker hangs Mexican flag on Trump Tower in Vancouver: ‘Mexicans were there, building it’

A construction worker visiting Trump International Hotel in Vancouver made a statement against the building’s namesake this weekend.

Diego Saul Reyna posted a photo and message to Facebook, documenting his hanging of a Mexican flag at the top of the hotel’s tower on Saturday.

“Because from the concrete pouring, finishing, drywall, taping, wood forming and general [labor], Mexicans were there, building it…”

As of Monday morning, the post had more than 1,600 shares and a mixture of comments, some lending Reyna their support, while others seemed to defend the GOP frontrunner.

From The Daily Dot:

Reyna doesn’t work at the Trump Tower construction site, but he told Huffington Post Canada that he has Mexican and Muslim friends who do and who are frustrated and upset that they can’t say anything. That’s why Reyna stepped in and hung the flag. He also said, “I’m not concerned about Trump rising to power. I’m concerned about his values and his points of view extending to our country.”

Reyna’s post has now been shared more than 3,500 times. The flag has reportedly since been removed.
