STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Gourmands now have a way to a free meal. The online service Eat24 offered a promotion linked to last night's Republican presidential debate. The company offered a free taco every time Donald Trump said Mexico. Trump has criticized illegal immigrants in terms that prompted some of his business partners to drop him. A transcript shows Trump said Mexico three times last night, accusing the country of beating the U.S. on trade and at the border. Eat up, it's MORNING EDITION.
