During a news conference in Iowa on Tuesday, billionaire mogul and GOP candidate Donald Trump had a confrontation with Jorge Ramos, an anchor for Univision.
Ramos stood up and began to ask Trump about his plans to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, and to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Excuse me, sit down. You weren’t called,” Trump quickly responded. “Sit down. Sit down.”

“I am a reporter. Don’t touch me. I have a right to ask the question,” said Ramos, as a security officer approached him and began to push him from the room.
While other journalists proceeded to question Trump as to why he wouldn’t take questions from Ramos, an Emmy award-winning Mexican-American journalist, Trump insisted that it was because Ramos asked a question out of turn.
Approximately 15 minutes after he was removed from the room, Ramos returned, and he and Trump began to debate Trump’s plans for immigration as a Presidential hopeful.
“You cannot deny citizenship to children,” Ramos insisted. He went on to question how Trump planned to deport 11 million people.
“Very humanely,” said Trump, who ultimately called his plan for dealing with illegal immigrants “management.”
Trump sued the entire Univision network for $500 million in June after it dropped coverage of his Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants following comments he made about Mexican immigrants.
