"Our company is multicultural with people of Latin American descent making up a large percentage of our employees and loyal customers. As a company proudly founded on the concept of coming to the USA in pursuit ofthe American Dream, Mr. Trump's comments do not and will never reflect our company's philosophy or practices."
