Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had an extended argument with the news anchor from a Hispanic television network, after he initially had the anchor escorted from a news conference.
Trump had a member of his security detail remove Jorge Ramos, the Miami-based anchor for Univision, from the conference room after Ramos stood up and began asking pointed questions about the billionaire’s immigration proposal.
Trump has proposed ending birthright citizenship, a constitutionally protected right that declares that children born in the U.S. are automatically citizens.
Trump told Ramos to “go back to Univision.”
Trump said Ramos was removed because Trump didn’t call on him to ask questions.
Ramos was later readmitted and engaged Trump in a lengthy argument.
Although Ramos is best known as Univision’s most visible anchor (think the Latin Anderson Cooper), he also hosts his own news program, where he regularly interviews Latin tastemakers, including musical artists.
Immediately following the Trump boot, artist reaction on twitter was still trickling in.
“This is the reason you will never be president @realDonaldTrump,” wrote Tejano artist Bobby Pulido. “You don’t have the temperament.”
Meanwhile, comedian George Lopez encouraged his fans to follow Ramos on Twitter and likened Trump to Rodney Dangerfield.
