VIDEO: Donald Trump Has Univision Reporter Removed From Press Conference

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.

Trump: “If I’m Going Down, Then Bush Is Going Down with Me”

Reportedly motivated by a feud with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush over a failed business deal, sources close to real estate tycoon and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump claim that Trump has vowed to stop Bush from ascending to the presidency.

In an article by New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman which gives an inside look into Trump’s presidential campaign, a friend and informal adviser to Donald Trump quoted the celebrity billionaire as having said, “If I’m going down, then Bush is going down with me. He’s not going to be president of the United States.

Below the headline in Sherman’s article, which focuses on the nuts-and-bolts of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, details are found which point to the emergence of a heated and personal feud between Trump and Jeb Bush. Reportedly, Trump blames Bush for Univision’s cancellation of its contract to televise the Miss USA Pageant.

While Trump assured me that he thinks Bush is ‘a nice person,’ he has told friends in private that his animosity is personal. According to one friend, Trump blames Bush and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim for Univision’s decision in June to cancel a $13.5 million contract with Trump to televise his Miss USA pageant. Five days later, Slim scrapped a deal with Trump to develop shows in Mexico. Trump responded by filing a $500 million lawsuit against Univision. ‘Trump believes it all goes back to Jeb,’ the friend says. ‘He thinks Jeb and his wife, Columba, are close with Carlos Slim and Univision got pressure from Slim operatives.’ In a move that further confirmed Trump’s suspicions, Univision has hired Miguel Estrada, a Washington lawyer with deep Bush ties,” wrote Sherman.

Trump plans to best a recent $10 million television ad buy by Bush’s Right to Rise super-PAC by spending “whatever it takes.

Another friend of Trump reportedly told Sherman, “[Trump’s] numbers are going to come down, and then he’s going to panic. He doesn’t believe it will ever happen. He has not confronted this in his mind.” Sherman theorized that a drop in the polls might motivate Trump to carry out “a kamikaze mission against the candidates left standing.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump continues to ignore the Republican National Committee’s request that he take a pledge not to run against the GOP’s eventual nominee if he loses the primary.

When asked if he would consider withdrawing from the race, Trump told Sherman, “I only want to go all the way.
