Port Moody Man Hangs Mexican Flag On Vancouver’s Trump Tower Rooftop

Port Moody Man Hangs Mexican Flag On Vancouver's Trump Tower Rooftop

A Port Moody man’s message was heard far and wide this weekend.

Diego Saul Reyna, one of the Trump Tower Vancouver construction workers proudly hung a Mexican flag from the building’s rooftop to send a message to Donald Trump.

Throughout his Republican presidential campaign, Trump has heavily criticized Mexican immigrants numerous times.

Reyna made a short video and shared the photo above on his Facebook page, and proudly explained exactly why:

“WHY DID I PUT A MEXICAN FLAG ON THE ROOF TOP OF TRUMP TOWER VANCOUVER? 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, 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”
