Jill Biden told a group of Hispanic voters in Texas that they were as “unique as breakfast tacos” in a botched compliment.

The US first lady was making a speech in San Antonio on Monday (11 July) when she referenced the traditional Mexican snack.

She has since apologised for her comments in a statement shared by her press secretary.
