This certainly isn’t the wall he had in mind.

Putting their own spin on Donald Trump‘s infamous declaration that he will build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border if elected, taco and food truck owners lined up outside of the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas Wednesday, where Trump is camping out before the evening’s third and final presidential debate against rival Hillary Clinton.

The Culinary Workers Union organized the rally, which attracted about 100 people, reports CNN.

“[Trump has] tried to divide this country by talking about a wall — we will not be fear-mongered into being divided, and he will not be president,” Yvanna Cancela, the political director of the Culinary Workers Union local 226, told NBC News.

The demonstration also slyly fought back against a comment from Donald Trump surrogate Marco Gutierrez — founder of the group Latinos for Trump —who warned last month that a failure to adopt Trump’s strict immigration policies could result in “taco trucks on every corner.”

The demonstration also included a “Trump wall” and a cutout of Trump wearing a sash that read “Miss Eating Machine,” which alluded to the comment the GOP candidate allegedly directed toward onetime Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

Among the crowd was also Rev. Jesse Jackson, who gave a speech in which he reportedly said: “We marched in Mississippi for hope and change, now we can vote for change.”
