Donald Trump Kicks Jorge Ramos Out Of Press Conference

-A +A

"Go back to Univision."

Donald Trump on Tuesday dismissively told highly respected television anchor Jorge Ramos to "go back to Univision" before security physically removed the Mexican-American journalist from a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa.

Ramos was trying to ask Trump about his plan to deport all undocumented immigrants, but the business mogul and GOP presidential candidate said he was interrupting. He insisted that security had made the decision to kick out Ramos, but said he was fine with it.

"This guy stands up and starts screaming," Trump said. "He's obviously a very emotional person."

Trump claimed he didn't know much about Ramos, which may have been true. But he probably should -- Ramos is wildly popular as a Spanish-language anchor and well-regarded for pressing politicians from both parties on issues, particularly immigration.

Trump, by contrast, is mostly disliked by Latinos, and going after Ramos is unlikely to help that fact.

The anchor was eventually let back into the press conference and got the chance to have an extended back-and-forth with Trump. Ramos pointed out that denying citizenship to children of undocumented immigrants, as Trump wants to do, would be a violation of the Constitution. Trump said he was wrong. Ramos asked how he would build a 1,900-mile wall; Trump said he could do it because he builds 95-story buildings.

When Ramos noted that an estimated 40 percent of undocumented immigrants came to the U.S. legally and overstayed their visa, Trump said, "I don't believe it."

Trump promised to deport undocumented immigrants who are gang members "so fast your head will spin." Others will also be deported but "good ones" would be allowed to come back, Trump insisted.
