BOB UNANUE (CEO, GOYA FOODS): As the president just mentioned, they took down a lot of the restrictions and roadblocks to make America great, and prosper, bring manufacturing back to our shores, which we still need to continue to do. I think that going forward if we reverse all of this, it’s going to be an issue.

But one of the things we’re going to see is that a miracle cure — all of a sudden, while coronavirus runs its course and nothing has really changed, with Trump — President Trump out of the way, now people are going to go back to work. Cuomo’s already talking about going back to work.

And miraculously, they accomplished what they set out to do, was to get President Trump out of the way. The problem is — as some of these comments are — that President Trump said, “They’re not after me, they’re after you, I'm just in the way.’” And I think this is mission accomplished — mission accomplished by the union, the partnership, the conglomerate of social media, Big Tech, big media, and government, big government — for ushering in the dawn of a new world order, this Great Reset, with an unverified election.


UNANUE: And the big prize is the United States. And they didn't go after just President Trump, they’re after us now —the 80 million people that voted for him — and also all of the people in the United States, with the very few having control over our speech, our work, our religion. There is a war coming, now that the president is leaving today, they’re still coming after the United States, the working class. They’ve decimated the working class this year by shutting down the economy.


UNANUE: And this is not just in the United States. There’s censorship around the world. This cardinal Mexican cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez was censored for — by Facebook, for denouncing a new world order. So you know, Big Tech, social media is not looking just for the big prize of the United States, this is a world order.

BARTIROMO: Yeah. I think this will come back to haunt Big Tech, because this is un-American to be censoring the way that we are seeing all of this censorship.

The “Great Reset” refers to a conspiracy theory that has circulated in right-wing media, alleging that global economic and political elites are planning to use the coronavirus pandemic in order to drastically reduce the human population and then subjugate the society that still remains.

Unanue’s false claim that 80 million people voted for Trump appears similar to the claims advanced by Trump ally and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who alleges that Trump won 79 million votes versus only 68 million for President-elect Joe Biden. In reality, it was Biden who received 81 million votes compared to 74 million for Trump.
