Trump on Hispanic Advisory Council member Steve Cortes: 'He looks more like a WASP than I do'

President Trump said Hispanic Advisory Council member and prominent Latino pro-Trump commentator Steve Cortes "looks more like a WASP than I do" during his rally in New Mexico on Monday night.

Trump referred to Cortes as a "WASP," the abbreviation for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, at his rally in Rancho Rio, N.M.

"He happens to be Hispanic, but I've never quite figured it out because he looks more like a WASP than I do," Trump said. 

Trump continued that "no one" loves Hispanics or this country more than Cortes and asked him during the rally who he likes more.

"He says the country. I don't know," the president said. "I may have to go with the Hispanics, to be honest with you. We've got a lot of Hispanics."
