On Tuesday, Donald Trump’s security temporarily removed Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from a press conference in Iowa after the journalist tried to confront the presidential candidate about his immigration policy without being called on.
“Sit down, you weren’t called, sit down,” Trump told Ramos, who protested, “I have a right to ask a question.”
“No you don’t,” said Trump, adding, “Go back to Univision.”
After Ramos was escorted out of the room, Trump denied being responsible for his ejection and later allowed the Al Punto host to return and ask his questions, which the GOP frontrunner largely ignored. From CBS News:
[Ramos] asked Trump how he plans to deport 11 million people, to which Trump replied, “The one thing we’re going to start with immediately is the gangs.” Undocumented criminals, he said, are “going to be out so fast, your head will spin.”
Acknowledging that “most” immigrants are good people, Trump added that he’d like the Mexican immigrants he plans to deport to come back legally. “We’ll have a wall, and the wall’s going to have a big, beautiful door where people can come in legally,” he said.
When Ramos pressed for specifics of his plan to deport undocumented immigrants and build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, Trump insisted, “I’m a great manager, I know how to manage things.”
In a statement, Fusion CEO and president of news for Univision Isaac Lee later said, “We’d love for Mr. Trump to sit down for an in-depth interview with Jorge to talk about the specifics of his proposals.”
