Jorge Ramos Blames ‘Loco Hombre’ Trump for Normalization of White Supremacy

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos discussed Donald Trump‘s questionable debate remark about “bad hombres” during his appearance last night on The Late Show.

Trump offered the quip while discussing his hardline views on immigration, though his word choice raised a few eyebrows in the days that followed. The remark came up during Ramos’ chat with Stephen Colbert, during which, the CBS host wondered if it was correct to describe Trump as a “loco hombre.”

Ramos put his hands up and noted that Colbert was the one who said it, though he smiled at the remark. The two of them proceeded to talk about Ramos’ rough relationship with Trump, particularly the time where the former was  thrown out of the mogul’s press event.

Eventually, Ramos began to discuss Hate Rising, his upcoming documentary which explores the Trump campaign’s connection to racism and white nationalism. Ramos explained that such sentiments have always existed in America to a certain degree, but they became much more prominent alongside Trump’s political rise.
