There's nothing that presidential candidate Donald Trump can say that would surprise us over here at HypeFresh anymore. Here's what he had to say at the Mexican border Thursday.

Trump, arrived in Laredo, Texas at the border town wearing a "Make America Great Again" baseball cap, spent nearly an hour touring the World Trade Bridge with the city's mayor and manager, according to his campaign, before holding a news conference at the border crossing.

"There's great danger with the illegals," Trump told reporters, referring to the millions of Americans living in the U.S.

illegally, many of them Hispanic. But he claimed a "great relationship" with Hispanics, even as Latino leaders have come at him with blistering criticism for his painting Mexican immigrants as criminals.

"I'll take jobs back from China, I'll take jobs back from Japan," Trump said.

"The Hispanics are going to get those jobs, and they're going to love Trump."

According to the New Zealand Herald, a local border patrol union pulled out of events involving him. Patrol agents had planned to accompany Trump to the border and hold a meeting with him but canceled after consultations with their national union, the National Border Patrol Council, said local union president Hector Garza.

Trump stepped off his plane in Laredo and said the union members backed out because they were "petrified and they're afraid of saying what's happening" at the border.

Many of the other Republican candidates have chastised Trump and situated themselves further and further away from his unique beliefs.

We don't think Hispanics will be hopping on the Trump band wagon anytime soon. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
