"At this point, I really do not care anymore," California Latino resident Max Trevino said. "He [Trump] is a very smart businessman, but he does not know when to be quiet. The amount of disrespect he gave us [Latinos] made us seem like we are bad people. We are not bad people, not all of us came here without documents, I was born and raised here, I work hard, pay my bills, and mind my own business, but I never experienced this much racism ever since he became president. And now that he is back on social media, I have a feeling things will get worse, he was banned from Twitter for writing inappropriate things, and I am sure he is going to do the same on that [Instragram] app."

Trevino has been living in California all his life, more than 25 years and he says that Trump just "made things worse."

"Okay hear me out, racism has been around for years, that is true, but I feel like it is more common now, to us Latinos because Trump made it okay. He said things about us in his speeches, that were heard all over the world, so now it makes it "normal" for other people to call us those same things, because he said it. And now that he is on Instagram, he will start spreading those false rumors about us again."

In Trump's speech when he announced his candidacy for president, he began by insulting Latinos.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people," Trump said in his speech.

Puerto Rican Florida resident Steven Sanchez thinks otherwise.

"Trump is a businessman strategic, and truly for getting our nation back on track," Sanchez said. "I didn't feel offended the way he went about things. The approach could have been different, yes, but the aid was there and what did happen was the Puerto Rican government misappropriated funds and other aids. Trump has always done what he set out to do. I feel good that he is back on Instagram, I can't wait to see what he says and posts next."
