The Trump name is making the rounds on social media once again, but this time it’s not about the Donald’s latest antics.
Over the weekend, a construction worker climbed to the top of the soon-to-be-opened Trump Tower in Vancouver to send a message.
For a few moments, the Mexican flag was clearly visible on the rooftop of the massive building.
Diego Saul Reyna, a Canadian-Mexican steel framer from Port Moody, shared a photo of the protest in a Facebook post that has since been shared nearly 10,000 times.
“From the concrete pouring, finishing, drywall, taping, wood forming and general labour, Mexicans were there, building it, doing good work,” he writes in the online post.
“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.”
On Tuesday, Reyna posted a follow-up message on his personal page translated from Spanish to say, “Mexican brethren, that flag was for all of us. We’re all up on that tower.”
