But on the gap between being an immigrant of the 70s, and of today, Vaynerchuck added that the new challenges todays immigrants face are “devastating.”
“Unfortunately there’s a lot of hate and fear in the system right now.”
“The great news is a small-minded non-educated hatemonger can’t stop you from building your business.”
But what could be construed as a thinly-veiled jab at U.S. President Donald Trump, Vaynerchuk added was simply not the case.
“I just want to make this clear, I’m not talking about a president. I’m talking about a boss. Or an educator. Somebody who thinks they can stop you.”
“Nobody can stop anybody into today’s environment. So I would say that I think it’s better in the U.S. for an immigrant than it was when I came.”
