Then again, it might be about highlighting to the Hispanic vote that Democrats do not really like them personally, just as they hate white working class people in flyover country now. The Democrats have been horribly cynical over the last 30 years, but they do have a devoted following who will vote for them come hell or high water. They got that level of devotion by claiming the mantel of championing the poor and working people and now whatever sort of intersectional minority they can synthesize.

Check out a church service schedule. You'll notice they have masses in English and Spanish, and increasingly in Latin. You may not believe in Catholicism, but if you come for the first 5 minutes of a mass, you can get a demographic view of those who do. You like to bitch about older people. Older people tend to vote. Younger people, not so much. Older people tend to go to church. Trump can cleave off a lot of Hispanic, Filipino, and other groups as the Democrats either spit or swallow their vitriol for people who follow traditional religions.
