A construction worker snuck up to the top of Vancouver's Trump Tower to hang a Mexican flag. Diego Reyna said he was protesting Donald Trump's insulting comments about Mexican immigrants, and to show Trump benefits from the same people he insults.
Trump, who is a mendacious racist, launched his presidential campaign by describing Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists.
Reyna told BuzzFeed Canada that he and a friend dressed in their construction gear and talked their way past security. They took the elevator 20 storeys up, and then walked up the stairs for the remaining 43 floors of the unfinished building.
Reyna didn't work on the Vancouver Trump tower himself, but he knows many people who did, including many immigrants.
