Latin Pop Stars Join For Anti-Trump Anthem “We’re All Mexican”

Donald Trump has been leading the pack of Republican presidential candidates almost since he announced that he was running. And when he made that announcement, he made it absolutely clear that he’s running under an anti-immigration platform, even claiming that the Mexican immigrants coming to America are drug dealers, criminals, and rapists. Now the Cuban American producer Emilio Estefan — the husband of Gloria and a longtime member of her Miami Sound Machine band — tells Billboard that he’s recruited a number of Latin and Caribbean pop stars to record “We’re All Mexican,” which he calls a “celebration of Hispanics and our accomplishments.”

Estefan says that the song will feature Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Carlos Santana, Thalia, Pepe Aguilar, Wyclef, Wisin, radio host Enrique Santos, and celebrity chef José Andrés, among dozens of Latin American celebrities. He says that he’s known Trump “for many, many years” and claims that the song “is not so much an answer to the real-estate developer turned Republican candidate as it is an answer to the sentiment that we’ve progressed [as Hispanics] and we need to let people know that… Trump doesn’t represent anything to me. Everyone has their opinion, and he can have whatever opinion he wants, as long as he doesn’t humiliate my people.”
