ARMORED SAINT drummer Gonzo Sandoval has publicly come out in support of Donald Trump, who is vying to become the next President of the United States.
Gonzo, who — like his brother and ARMORED SAINT bandmate Phil Sandoval — is of Mexican descent (ARMORED SAINT bassist Joey Vera is "half Mexican," according to singer John Bush), has released a video message dubbed "Don't Dump On Trump" (see below) in which he urges everyone to "get out and vote" on Tuesday, November 8 and "vote for Trump-Pence."
In a series of public messages on his personal Facebook page, Gonzo tried to explain why a Latino like him would support the presidential candidate who is widely considered to have run the most anti-Mexican, anti-immigrant campaign in modern history.
He wrote in a November 2 post: "Oh Heavenly Father, I Pray Americans Vote... For The Man that will Help redirect USA, our Country to We the People... For the Man that will bring good paying jobs and grow our economy... For the Man that will protect our borders... For the Man that will Build our Military World wide and help keep all Americans protected... For the Man that will make new trade deals that benefit America and all of us in America first... For the Man that will help stop this idea of globalization.. For the Man that will rebuild our infrastructure ... For the Man that will help our Schools and focus on education of our youngsters... That man is Donald J. Trump .... Vote for Trump/Pence on Nov. 8, 2016..."
He went on to say: "Don't Dump on Trump for trying to help our Country, that we all Love!!! Don't Dump on Trump for standing strong against all the establishment and seeking to change the direction (for the better) of our country, that we all Love!!! Don't Dump on Trump for pinpointing and shedding light on the American issues that need immediate attention... Don't Dump on Trump... Period!
"Help Trump Win so the USA may benefit from his business mind and Thrive again Together As Americans!!!
"Open the eyes of your hearts, Lord!!! God Bless You all!!! God Bless Donald J. Trump!!! God Bless Mike Pence!!! God Bless America!!!"
Two weeks earlier, Gonzo wrote in another post that he made public: "No Bill is not running for President. Kilary is, she is still married to Bill …Kilary attacked, viciously all the woman that Bill had affairs with ...that is part of her temperament and decision making…. not to mention all the other crimes she was involved with, (deleting 33,000 emails after receiving a subpoena from Congress) is just one of the many! …Imagine her finger on the nuclear button 33,000 times …and then lying about it…. Danger Alert...No way!!! WoW...we cannot have Kilary near the White house … Period! Vote Trump/Pence!!!"
ARMORED SAINT's new live album, "Carpe Noctum", will be released on February 24, 2017 via Metal Blade. The effort marks the band's first live release since 1989's "Saints Will Conquer" and features tracks recorded from their headlining show in Aschaffenburg, Germany, plus last year's Wacken Open Air festival.
