Goya Foods faces another call for a boycott after chief executive Robert Unanue said that former President Donald Trump is "the real, the legitimate, and the still actual" president at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference.

"My biggest honor today is that, I think, we're going to be on the same stage as, in my opinion, the real, the legitimate, and the still actual president of the United States, Donald J. Trump," Unanue said on Sunday, according to Newsweek.

Goya faced a boycott last summer after Unanue publicly backed Trump, but that eventually blew over according to the CEO, who said that some sales were boosted. However, several prominent political commentators renewed those calls after Unanue’s speech on Sunday.

Veteran political strategist Ana Navarro-Cárdenas wrote on Twitter: “I thought I’d read that the Board of @GoyaFoods had told their blabbering fool, conspiracy theorist CEO to shut the hell up. But here is the ‘My Pillow Guy’ of frijoles, spreading lies at Cult-PAC. Thank you @CapehartJ for reminding me, so I don’t ever buy his crappy adobo.”

Keith Olbermann added: “Unanue also says people voted ten times each and twitter can’t cancel him again and and... Let’s make Goya Foods go bankrupt #BankruptGoya”

Robert Vance, a Democrat circuit judge from Alabama, simply wrote: “boycott @GoyaFoods.”
