Annie and Ceci Cardelle are sisters of Cuban descent who went to protest a Donald Trump campaign event at restaurant in Salisbury, North Carolina, on Friday night (Oct. 21). Annie attended wearing a ”Latinas contra Trump” t-shirt.

If any of Trump’s supporters understood that the handwritten message was Spanish for ”Latinas against Trump,” they apparently didn’t tell the candidate’s son Eric Trump. He and his wife, Lara, agreed to pose for a picture with the Cardelles.

“It’s been almost two years of Trump continuously putting down Latinos, making us feel like we don’t belong. So, my whole thing was to go there and say, ‘I’m Latina and we’re against you because of what you say about our race,’” Annie Cardelle told Buzzfeed. Her sister, Ceci, added: “We were kind of in disbelief that no one understood this protest… It really goes to show the lack of diversity in their team.”
