The #AdiósTrump hashtag trended high on Twitter after a drop the mic moment from Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro in Wednesday’s first 2020 debate.

Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development secretary in former President Barack Obama’s administration, vowed to “work hard every single day so that you and your family can get good health care, your child can get a good education, and you can have good job opportunities in a big city or small town”

“And on January 20, 2021, we’ll say ‘Adiós’ to Donald Trump,” he added.

If I’m elected President, I will work hard every single day so that you and your family can get good health care, your child can get a good education, and you can have good job opportunities in a big city or small town. And on January 20, 2021, we’ll say "Adiós" to Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/L2aeNotsL5

Castro’s closing statement elicited cheers from both the studio audience attending the debate and from hundreds of people online:

I think America has learned that @JulianCastro is a Top 5 candidate. He crushed it tonight. He was arguably the winner of the night, I think. He crushed his closing statement, but he gave smart, cogent, thoughtful, courageous answers all night. #AdiosTrump#DemDebate

An impressive candidate and, although not my first choice, seeing racist Trump be defeated by the first Latin president would be incredibly gratifying. #AdiósTrump https://t.co/RHZ91y78dq

#AdiosTrumpJulian Castro has been my top candidate from the beginning, I am beyond excited that he’s getting the attention he deserves! His policies attacking income inequalities and promoting social and political justice make him a top candidate. pic.twitter.com/7hAYO6mMrW

Don't get me wrong I'm still #Warren2020 but Castro knocked it out of the park tonight & killed me when he said #AdiósTrump 😂 https://t.co/zLy3OTMevm

Trump started his presidential run with derogatory comments about any person of color. It’s going to end when a Tejano kicks him out of office. @JulianCastro #AdiosTrump #demdebate
