Convention Bungles ‘Hispanics for Trump’ Sign
The Republican National Convention messed up their Spanish grammar on signs that were meant to say “Hispanics for Trump.”
Spotted: "Hispanics para Trump"
It's not 'para' guys, it's 'por' or e en better, 'con'.#VivaLosHispanico

The Hill reports:
Signs seen being waved at the convention — presumably passed out along with other placards — read “Hispanics para Trump.”
Not only did the text not translate “Hispanics” to “Hispanos,” it also used “para” instead of “por.”
The two words — which both denote various meanings of the word “for” — are easily mixed up and a common point of frustration for those learning the language.
