The “Latinos for Trump Roundtable” was closed to the public, but was live-streamed.

Those taking part in the discussion were mostly small business owners in Nevada, and thanked the president for his efforts to keep them afloat.

“It is a breath of fresh air to have a president that we know we can have the opportunity to start a business, and bring our vision to fruition,” said Victoria Seaman.

The roundtable lasted about 40 minutes.

“We’ve been waiting for you because we need you we need your policies and everything you do,” says Jesus Marquez. “We have a governor who has been very tough on us.”

One attendee brought up the current gaming bar restrictions that remain in Nevada amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Unfair, very unfair,” said President Trump, in response.
