Univision owner Haim Saban pushes Clinton team to Latino strategy


Major Hillary Clinton donor and Univision owner Haim Saban pushed Clinton to come out more forcefully against Donald Trump for his remarks about Mexican immigrants — but also expressed concerned that Univision was starting to be seen as too pro-Clinton, hacked emails released by Wikileaks show.

"Haim thinks we are under reacting to Trump/Hispanics. Thinks we can get something by standing up for Latinos or attacking R’s for not condemning,” Clinton campaign chair John Podesta wrote to senior members of the campaign.

Hispanics and Latinos aren’t a single monolithic group, for one they are racially diverse, i.e., most Cuban Americans self-identify as racially white, whilst Dominican Americans are the most likely group to identify as some other race. Many Hispanics are socially conservative (since most are Catholic) but do not side with Trump on things like border control.
