Donald Trump has Univision’s Jorge Ramos kicked out of Iowa press conference.

“When people treat me unfairly, I don’t let them forget it,” Trump told reporters at a news conference before a campaign rally at the Grand River Center in Dubuque. Minutes after Jorge Ramos was escorted from Donald Trump’s press conference, the Univision anchor was later welcomed back into the room and was allowed to direct questions to the presidential hopeful about his immigration policies. “Good to have you back,” Trump told him when he was allowed back into the room.

Donald Trump attacked the most important journalist on Spanish-speaking television in a face-off on Tuesday in Iowa, telling anchor Jorge Ramos to “go back to Univision.” As Ramos continued to speak, Trump appeared to glance at his regular, traveling bodyguard and click his lips. Go back to Univision!” Trump barked at journalist and commentator Jorge Ramos, who stood to pose questions about the GOP frontrunner’s immigration platform before a suited security guard marched him out of the room.

I don’t believe I’ve ever met him except he started screaming,” Trump later said during the press conference when asked about Ramos’ swift departure. “You’ll have to talk to security…He just stands up and starts screaming so maybe he’s at fault also.” According to CNN, who had a reporter at the press conference, Ramos’ questions were centered around immigration and Trump’s deportation plans for undocumented residents. Also during the news conference, Trump engaged in a prolonged confrontation with the anchor of the nation’s leading Spanish-language network, first having the well-known news personality removed before allowing him back in.-Mexico border to stem the tide of undocumented immigrants and his hope of denying their American-born children citizenship. “You cannot deport 11 million undocumented immigrants,” he said, or deny citizenship to their children — who receive it by virtue of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment. Trump to sit down for an in-depth interview with Jorge to talk about the specifics of his proposals,” Isaac Lee, Fusion CEO and president of news for Univision, said in a statement.

The Noticiero Univision anchor — who also hosts Al Punto and the English-language America with Jorge Ramos on Fusion — spoke to CNN Monday night about Trump’s immigration policies, calling them “absurd” and saying his views are “spreading hate.” It wasn’t the first time Ramos has spoken out against Trump’s views on immigration. “Right now Donald Trump is, no question, the loudest voice of intolerance, hatred and devision in the United States,” he said on America with Jorge Ramos last week. Back in June, Trump filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision after the Spanish-language network dropped its coverage of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. Trump.” Trump — as he himself mentioned Tuesday night — had issues with Univision long before he had Ramos ejected from the question-and-answer session in Dubuque. A Washington think tank that favors immigration restrictions, the Center for Immigration Studies, estimates that about 40,000 babies annually are born to parents who enter the United States specifically to have a child, and that most of those parents enter the country legally. No, no, some of the greatest legal scholars, and I know some of those television scholars agree with you,” he told Ramos as they disputed birth citizenship.

The exchange between journalist and real estate mogul was so tense partly because it centered on one of the most controversial planks of Trump’s candidacy, his immigration platform. A 2006 report by the Pew Hispanic Center found that as much as 45 percent of the people in the U.S. illegally entered with legal visas but overstayed them. They’re really smart.” On July 18 in Ames, Trump stirred controversy when he told a crowd of Iowa evangelical conservatives that he has never asked God for forgiveness for his actions. Trump first denied the Register press credentials to an event late last month, after the newspaper’s opinion writers published an editorial calling for him to exit the race.

His campaign credentialed the Register to attend his helicopter landing and news conference at a softball diamond near the Iowa State Fairgrounds Aug. 15. But on Tuesday afternoon, Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email: “We are not able to credential you or your colleagues for tonight’s event.
