Trump starts new media feud – This time with an anchor

Published on August 28, 2015 with No Comments

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump engaged in a prolonged confrontation Jorge Ramos, the anchor of the nation’s leading Spanish-language network, during a news conference, having the wellknown news personality removed before allowing him back in. Ramos, the Miami-based anchor for Univision, stood up and began to ask Trump about his immigration proposal, which includes ending automatic citizenship for infants born in the US to parents in the country illegally. As Ramos began to speak, Trump interrupted him, saying he hadn’t called on Ramos before repeatedly telling him to “sit down“ and then saying, “Go back to Univision.“ As one of Trump’s security detail approached Ramos, the anchor continued to speak, saying, “You cannot deport 11 million people,“ referring to Trump’s proposal to deport all people in the country illegally before allowing some of them to return. As he was taken from the room, Ramos said, “You cannot build a 1,900-mile wall,“ another proposal in Trump’s plan. Trump justified Ramos’ removal, saying “He just stands up and starts screaming. Maybe he’s at fault also.“

Trump’s immigration proposal has sparked intense debate within the 2016 Republican field. Several candidates, including former Gov Jeb Bush, have called it “unrealistic.“ Ramos was later allowed back into the news conference. Trump greeted him politely, though they quickly resumed their argument, interrupting each other during an extended back-and-forth. Ramos claimed that 40 percent of people illegally enter through airports, not over the Mexican border. “I don’t believe that. I don’t believe it,“ Trump responded.
