The Trump Taco Conspiracy

Donald Trump, perhaps more than most Americans, loves tacos. The suggestion that tacos are only made by Mexicans is racist — the worst sort of identity politics. The reality is that the taco was an invention of a fellow New Yorker named Juvenico Maldonado in 1947 (USTPO №2,506,305).

The reality is that if you’re not in Texas you might not have heard of the breakfast taco. When I travel to Miami or Mexico it is almost impossible get a breakfast taco — they were invented in San Antonio.
