Rubén Díaz Sr., a Democratic politician from New York who represented the city’s 18th district as a councilmember from 2018 to 2021 and the 32nd District in the New York Senate from 2003 to 2017, endorsed former President Donald Trump during his historic rally in the Bronx on Thursday.

“I want to join you in having the Bronx great again,” Díaz told Trump in Crotona Park. “Please accept this democrat, this black Puerto Rican with kinky hair and broken English. Please accept my endorsement for you as president.” (see video below)

During his speech, Díaz mocked U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her inaccurate predictions about the rally. After telling reporters on Capitol Hill that she expected low turnout for the event on Wednesday, she reiterated her expectations on Thursday morning when a massive rainstorm hit.

During the storm, AOC responded to a reporter’s post predicting a washout for Trump’s event, saying “God is good.” Unfortunately for the far-left congresswoman, the rain cleared up after about an hour, giving way to clear skies and warm weather.

“As a minister, president of the New York Hispanic clergy organization, I want to tell AOC… who wanted to become a prophet,” Díaz began, drawing laughs from the crowd. “And she said, even God doesn’t want Trump in the Bronx because it’s going to rain. Madam prophet AOC, you have become a false prophet,” the lifelong Democrat continued as rallygoers reacted with cheers.

After weeks of hinting at a potential rally in New York City, Trump followed through on Thursday while remaining in the city to address Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s questionable criminal case against him. The former president was greeted with a hometown welcome from an enthusiastic crowd, comprised of both longtime supporters and New Yorkers open to considering a Republican.

Hello, New York City, and hello to all of the incredible, tough, strong, hardworking American patriots right here in the Bronx. Who would think? Who would think? I’m thrilled to be back in the city I grew up in, the city I spent my life in, the city I helped build, and the city that we all love, New York City,” Trump told the crowd to begin his speech.

He added: “And I’m here tonight to declare that we are going to turn New York City around and we are going to turn it around very, very quickly!”
