Comments on Donald Trump
In a July 2016 interview with the New York Daily News, Renteria described what she considered to be "stakes" of the presidential election, commenting specifically on Donald Trump's immigration proposals. She said:
“My 3-year-old, who probably speaks better Spanish than English, recently told me 'Donald Trump can't win. He is going to say bad things about me.’ Those are those really personal moments that keep me up at night. When I started this job I said it was a real honor to have it. Now I say it's a real responsibility. … The gravity of what could happen in the negative keeps me up at night, 'if he wins,' and what his rhetoric might do. But what wakes me up is I believe we (will) win and we've solidified and validated the values of this country, and that includes Latino voices, small-town voices.”
