ITT Sound Off: Goya Flop

Maria and Julio dive into Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s visit to the White House. They talk about what the maskless meeting meant in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and Trump’s anti-Mexican, anti-immigrant, comments and policies. They also talk about Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue praising Trump. And finally, they break down Harper's “Letter on Justice and Open Debate,” examining how it serves to protect the elite. ITT Staff Picks:  - Gabrielle Bellot writes for Lit Hub about the transphobia embedded into the Harper's Open Letter and how it feels "to have your existence up for debate."  - Ana Lucía Murillo reports for Latino Rebels on how Goya President and CEO Bob Unanue went on Fox News Friday morning, refusing to apologize and instead defending his support of President Trump. - Al Jazeera reports on AMLO's visit to the White House, and the contrast between Trump's warm words to the Mexican president this week and his prior comments against Mexican immigrants.
