Donald Trump Removes Latino Reporter Jorge Ramos From Press Conference: “Go Back to Univision!”.

Univision journalist Jorge Ramos was “out of line” and “like a madman” when he interrupted another reporter’s question during his news conference, Donald Trump said Wednesday. “I will tell you, he was totally out of line last night.Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump responded to the chaos that erupted at Tuesday night’s Iowa press conference, in which Trump threw out a reporter who tried to question him on immigration, saying it was the reporter who was “totally out of line.” Univision anchor Jorge Ramos attempted to ask a question without being called on at Trump’s press conference after an Iowa rally, but the business mogul told him to “sit down” and “go back to Univison,” before having him escorted out by security. (Ramos was allowed to return later and the two had a testy exchange over immigration.) Trump’s handling of Ramos is nothing new: The billionaire real estate mogul, now the frontrunner in the GOP primary race, routinely berates and abuses the media.DUBUQUE, Iowa — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has opened up a new media feud, taking on another popular TV news personality even as his appearances continue to draw big ratings.

In the middle of the first Republican presidential debate, Trump balked at Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s tough questions and threatened to be mean to her. Ramos stood and began to ask Trump about his immigration proposal, which includes ending automatic citizenship for infants born in the United States to parents in the country illegally. He complained of unfair treatment for days afterward, promoting tweets that declared her a “bimbo.” On Monday night, after a two-week cease-fire, Trump tweeted critically about her again, saying she was “off her game” and had “no clue about immigration.” Brusque handling of the press is part of Trump’s brand, attracting legions of conservative supporters who say they’re sick of the political status quo.

When Ramos continued to attempt his question, Trump repeated. “You haven’t been called, go back to Univision,” before giving his security guards the nod to deal with the situation. Americans are “tired of the Jeb Bushes of the world, they’re tired of the Bushes, they’re tired of the Clintons, they’re tired of the politicians running this country into the ground, I think that’s why we have the biggest crowds,” he said. Trump watched silently as the Emmy-winning journalist, who was on the cover of Time magazine’s World’s Most Influential People issue, was removed from the room. After getting kicked out of the room, Ramos returned to press Trump on his immigration plan, specifically on his plans regarding birthright citizenship and to construct a wall along the expanse of the U.S. I think the best journalism happens when you take a stand.” The Incident happened the day after Trump resumed his feud with Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly.

-Mexico border. “You know how it is in the press conferences,” he said in a telephone interview with Chris Cuomo. “There were two reporters before me who asked a question, and then it was my turn. Ramos, like much of the Spanish-language press, has been highly critical of Trump’s far-right views on immigration, including his plan to deport all 11 million or so undocumented immigrants in the U.S. and build a massive border wall. Trump, however, swears he’s loved by all: “I have a great relationship the Mexican people,” he told NBC News in the wake of outrage over his assertion that Mexican immigrants illegally coming into the U.S. are criminals, rapists, and drug dealers. ”I love them, they love me!”
