While the rest of the team stayed at the Trump hotel, Gonzalez made accommodations elsewhere.


Since Trump kicked off his presidential campaign, he's repeatedly vowed to build a wall between Mexico and the US, and has called Mexican immigrants rapists, criminals, and drug dealers. He has also argued that an American-born judge was unfit to oversee a civil case against Trump University because of his "Mexican heritage."
