Trump observes Cinco de Mayo with taco bowl post

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a curious social media post.

Trump took to Twitter and Facebook Thursday with a picture of himself eating a taco bowl and the caption: "Happy Cinco de Mayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!"

The post immediately went viral, generating tens of thousands of retweets and seemingly as many jokes.

The taco bowl is not actually on sale at the Trump Grill, but the Trump Cafe in the candidate's namesake tower offers a "Taco Fiesta!" for $13.50.

Trump's poll numbers among Latinos have been consistently poor since he began his campaign by promising to build a border wall to prevent "killers" and "rapists" from coming to the U.S. from Mexico.
