Jorge Ramos was escorted out of the press conference after trying to ask a question about immigration
CNN caught the incident on camera, and it showed Trump calling on another reporter before he turned to Ramos and hold him to sit down since he hadn’t been called on.
“Excuse me, you weren’t called. Sit down,” the Republican presidential candidate said. “You haven’t been called. Go back to Univision.”
Ramos pressed on with his question about immigration and Trump’s plan to deport undocumented immigrants, before he was escorted out of the room.
As the press conference resumed, Trump was asked by a different reporter about what just happened.
“You’ll have to talk to security,” he answered. “He just stands up and starts screaming so maybe he’s at fault also. Somebody walked him out. I don’t even know where he is. I don’t mind if he comes back frankly.”
According to CNN, Ramos was allowed back in and welcomed by a “sometimes tense” exchange of words with the candidate, which ended with Trump saying, “You and I, we’ll talk.”
Isaac Lee, Univision’s president of news and Fusion CEO, later released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying, “We’d love for Mr. Trump to sit down for an in-depth interview with Jorge to talk about the specifics of his proposals.”
Trump announced in July that he was suing Univision for $500 million after the Spanish-language network broke ties with Trump’s Miss Universe Organization following his candidacy announcement, in which he criticized Mexican immigrants.
