Trump supporter Marco Gutierrez warns Americans that if Donald Trump loses the forthcoming presidential election, there will be a "Taco truck on every corner."
"My culture is a very dominant culture, and it's imposing — and it's causing problems," Marco Gutierrez of Latinos for Trump told Joy Ann Reid. "If you don't do something about it, you're going to have taco trucks on every corner."
Gutierrez does not realize, of course, that this is the single most wonderful promise to be made by any electoral candidate in any race ever, since the dawn of human civilization and any of the hypothetical alien civilizations to have preexisted it and which may have had their own analogues to the delicious Taco.
The Washington Post runs down the economic implications of there being a taco truck on every corner.
If you assume that three people work in each truck, that's 9.6 million new jobs created. The labor force in August was 159.4 million, with 144.6 million employed. Adding 9.6 million taco truck workers would help America reach nearly full employment — and that's just the staffing in the trucks. Think about all of the ancillary job creation: mechanics, gas station workers, Mexican food truck management executives. We'd likely need to increase immigration levels just to meet the demand.
UPDATE: Xeni noticed that Pulitzer-winning food critic Jonathan Gold also approves.
