A Basque in Boise

Jesus Alcelay, a longtime Boise resident from Oñati, on air about Hillary Clinton (in Basque)

The American people will finally decide today what type of leader they want for their country: a racist, bigoted and divise candidate, or Hillary Clinton.

This morning, Jesus Alcelay (Idaho’s best chef and all-around great guy), spoke in favor of Hillary Clinton on Faktoria, a radio program from the Basque Country (audio in Basque). Originally from Oñati, Gipuzkoa, Jesus has spent most of his life in the US and became an American citizen two years ago. His interview starts at the 5:45 minute mark.

 On the flip side, Basque Nevada resident Jose Mari Beristain, will vote for Trump (audio in Spanish).
