Donald Trump Kicks Jorge Ramos Out Of Press Conference


In a move that is sure to further alienate Donald Trump from Latino voters, he had legendary Univision anchor Jorge Ramos ejected from a news conference in Iowa. The trouble began when Ramos stood up and proceeded to ask Trump a question about immigration. Trump then said, “You haven’t been called! Go back to Univision!” and had Ramos escorted out. Trump claimed to not know who Ramos was. That’s seems unlikely since 1) Ramos is the most famous Latino journalist in the U.S. and 2) Trump knew that he worked for Univision. Trump has been feuding with Univision ever since the network decided to not show the Miss Universe pageant which Trump sponsors. Ramos was later allowed to return and ask his question. Ramos asked him about his plan to deport nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants. Trump then went into a diatribe about how “all the good ones” that were deported could petition for reentry legally. Then he went in to his usual schpeel about criminals, rapists, etc.

The thought that any journalist, especially one as respected as Jorge Ramos, would be treated this way is unconscionable. It just goes to show that Trump doesn’t have what it takes to be president. You will have people with different opinions than you and some people are going to question your policies and you can’t simply kick them out because you can’t deal with it. It shows a total lack of respect and possible signs of mental illness. Or he’s just an immature jerk. Either way, it is frightening that Trump is the Republican front runner. What it tells me is that his xenophobia is welcomed by many in this country. One thing I know is that he wouldn’t have done this to a White journalist.
