Donald Trump kicked Jorge Ramos, Univision’s anchor, out of a press conference Tuesday after Ramos tried to ask a question.
“Excuse me, sit down. You weren’t called,” Trump said.
Ramos insisted he had a right to ask a question, and Trump said, “No you don’t. Go back to Univision.”
On Monday night, Ramos, a Spanish-language news anchor, gave an interview to CNN in which he blasted Trump for his immigration plan and accused him of “spreading hate.” “When he’s talking about immigrants, he’s talking about me,” he said. “This is personal.”
Trump, while calling Ramos “an obviously emotional person,” told reporters Tuesday that Ramos could come back to the room. When Ramos returned, he sparred with Trump on the details of his immigration plan.
Univision previously decided to cancel the airing of the Miss USA pageant, which is partly owned by Trump, after Trump’s controversial comments about Mexico sending “rapists” to the United States. Trump responded by filing a lawsuit for more than $500 million, alleging breach of contract.
