Goya CEO Censured by Company’s Board for Trump Support

Robert Unanue, the CEO of Goya Foods, has been formally censured by his company’s board after continuing to express support for President Donald Trump, as reported by CNN.

The decision came after Unanue appeared on the Fox Business Network to talk about his expectations for the Biden Administration. During the interview, Unanue referenced the widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, which CNN falsely claims to be “unfounded claims.”

Following the interview, the Goya board voted to censure Unanue, which included the stipulation that Unanue is no longer allowed to speak to the media under any circumstances without the board’s approval.

An anonymous source claimed to CNN that the board has been trying to remove Unanue ever since he first voiced support for President Trump last year, but has been unable to do so due to the family dynamics of the company, which is the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the country. The source falsely claimed that Unanue has “imperiled the future of the company and endangered the lives of some of the shareholders.”

Unanue and Goya had previously come under fire from the Left after Unanue expressed support for President Trump’s re-election in July of 2020. The Left attempted to boycott Goya products, which only backfired and saw a massive spike in the sale of Goya-branded food.
