GOYA Foods CEO Bob Unanue said in a recent interview that the drama generated by U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' reaction to pro-Trump remarks "helped boost sales tremendously," reported the Patriot's Gazette.

While attending a White House business summit, he stated that America is “truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,” providing grist for politicians like Julian Castro and Ocasio-Cortez to initiate another agitation.

Unanue’s statements came during an interview with The Michael Berry Show.

When asked regarding the AOC drama whether “all publicity is good publicity?”, Unanue replied, “She’s our hero. She helped boost sales tremendously.”
