Ahead of Latino SNL Protest, Trump Retweets Bush in Sombrero, Swastika Images

Hours before planned protests against his appearance on Saturday Night Live, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump retweeted an image that carried a swastika and a photo of rival candidate Jeb Bush in a Mexican sombrero.

The tweet also read, "ADIOS JEB, aka JOSÉ."

Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor, is married to a Mexican woman, Columba Bush. He speaks Spanish fluently, which he has used in his campaign, something also criticized by Trump.

Felix Sánchez, founder of National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, said Trump's willingness to retweet the image helps explain why Latino groups have planned protests against SNL Wednesday evening.

...The tweet has since been deleted, but not before being redistributed on Twitter by critics. Trump is scheduled to host Saturday Night Live this weekend. On Monday, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus asked "Saturday Night Live" and parent company NBC Universal to "disinvite" Trump. The NHFA is one of several Latino groups planning an "All Out for SNL Dump Trump Rally" outside 30 Rockefeller Center, the location of the SNL studio. Others are the National Council of La Raza, National Hispanic Media Coalition, the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, America's Voice, the League of United Latin American Citizens and the National Institute for Latino Policy. Local groups are also participating.

Sanchez created and posted on YouTube a video criticizing NBC and SNL, saying they were "sanitizing bigotry."
