They said that Biden demonstrated a “lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region.”
Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw mocked NAHJ’s use of the word ‘Latino,’ saying, “Latinos? Don’t you mean LatinX????,” referencing the ‘inclusive’ term for Hispanics.
