Donald Trump denied that he's ever hired any undocumented immigrants when asked to respond to one of the immigrants that helped finish his $200 million hotel, and he also made this ridiculous assertion during an interview with MSNBC's Katy Tur: Donald Trump Insists He Will 'Win The Latino Vote':

Donald Trump is convinced that he will win over Latino voters in the 2016 presidential election despite recent comments he made calling Mexican immigrants "rapists" and drug dealers.

"I have a great relationship with the Mexican people. I have many people working for me -- you can look at the job in Washington -- I have many legal immigrants working with me. And many of them come from Mexico," he told NBC News on Wednesday, referencing a report that undocumented immigrants have been employed to help build Trump's new hotel project in Washington, D.C.

"They love me, I love them. And I'll tell you something, if I get the nomination, I'll win the Latino vote," Trump continued.

The real estate mogul claimed that his ability to create jobs will win over Latino voters.
