Donald Trump Outreach Inaccurately Claimed Top Hispanic Pastor as Advisor

posted on August 23, 2016

TIME’s Elizabeth Dias reports that Dallas pastor Mark Gonzales, one of the named leaders of Donald Trump’s new Hispanic Advisory Council, has not agreed to be part of the group.The Republican National Committee corrected the error and their press release after the story came out. The advisory council is comprised “of two-dozen Hispanic business, faith, and civic leaders” and “attempts to counter Trump’s unfavorable rating among Hispanics nationwide, which hovers around 80%.” Dias writes, “Trump is expected to give an immigration policy speech on Thursday, and Gonzales is still willing to serve on the board depending on what he hears.”
