Jorge Ramos Returns to Presser to Confront Trump on Immigration

ramos trumpAfter Donald Trump got Jorge Ramos kicked out of his press conference in Iowa, Ramos came back in the room and pressed Trump on his immigration position.

Trump started out by saying, “Good to have you back.”

Ramos got really combative with Trump and called him out for “empty promises” in his immigration plan. Trump insisted that “great legal scholars” support him and said he would be deporting 11 million people in a “very humane fashion.”

Someone can be heard telling Ramos that they want to move on, but Trump kept going and asked questions of Ramos. He said there’s tremendous crime and bad gangs and the border and asked, “Do you mind if I send them back to Mexico?”

A few minutes later, Ramos continued to confront Trump, this time about his support among Hispanics. Trump answered by asking, “How much am I suing Univision for?”

Trump rejected the poll findings and bragged that 1) thousands of Hispanics work for him and 2) they love him.

Update- 8:25 pm EST: Fusion CEO and President of News for Univision Isaac Lee responded to the skirmishes between Trump and Ramos in this short statement:

“We’d love for Mr. Trump to sit down for an in-depth interview with Jorge to talk about the specifics of his proposals.”
