Donald Trump told Hispanic anchor Jorge Ramos to "go back to Univision" during a press conference in Dubuque, Iowa, today (video below).
“Excuse me, sit down, you weren’t called. Sit down! Sit down! Sit down!” Trump told Ramos, who is an anchor for Univision.
Ramos insisted that he had a right to ask a question, but Trump replied, "No, you don’t, you haven't been called. Go back to Univision.”
A security guard removed Ramos, who continued protesting, from the room.
Trump was later asked about the Ramos incident by another reporter, and stated:
I don't know, I mean, I don't know really much about him. I don’t believe I 've ever met him, except he started screaming and I didn’t escort him out, you’ll have to talk to security, whoever security is escorted him out. But certainly he was not chosen.
I chose you, I chose other people, where you’re asking me questions. He just stands up and starts screaming so, you know, maybe he’s at fault also. But I don't consider that. I mean, somebody walked him out, I don't even know where he is. I don't mind if he comes back, frankly.
Ramos did return to the press conference room and told Trump that he that could not deport 11 million undocumented immigrants and end birthright citizenship, notes CNN.
Trump claimed that some of the "great legal scholars" oppose birthright citizenship.
Ramos asked Trump how he would build a border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and Trump reminded him of the buildings that he has built.
Trump also told Ramos that he (Trump) has a $500 million lawsuit against Univision, which stems from the Spanish-language network dropping his (Trump's) Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants because of his (Trump's) derogatory statements about Mexican immigrants, reported NPR in June.
