Monday evening, while appearing on CNN, Jorge Ramos of Univision accused Donald Trump of “spreading hate” towards illegal immigrants because he believes that the United States-Mexico border should be secured.
During his segment, Ramos blasted the Donald, stating that his proposed immigration policies were completely “wrong,” and that Trump is attempting to sell nothing but “empty promises.” Going further, he stated that everything the Republican presidential candidate is trying to sell the public is “false,” and alleged that Trump is the loudest voice of “hate” and “intolerance” in the United States.
Now that you have a little background, let’s fast forward to Trump’s event in Iowa Tuesday and how Ramos found himself paying for his words in a major way. During the early evening press conference in Dubuque, Ramos interrupted another reporter in an attempt to ambush Trump on immigration. As expected, Trump wasn’t having it.
“Excuse me, sit down. You weren’t called,” Trump said. “Sit down. Sit down. Sit down!”
As Ramos pressed on, he became increasingly aggressive as he stated that he had “the right to ask a question.” Trump responded, “No you don’t. Go back to Univision,” before the reporter found himself being escorted out by security.
Twitter loved watching this democratic party supporter who only had one purpose: to be shown the door. Check out some of their reactions:

Jorge Ramos is a jerk & he was grandstanding without being called on. He deserved to be kicked out of the room. Good for Trump for doing it. — John Hawkins (@johnhawkinsrwn) August 26, 2015
