Jorge Ramos on Trump Fight: "As A Reporter, My Job Is To Simply Ask Questions"


Univision and Fusion host Jorge Ramos appeared on the latter network Tuesday evening to explain his showdown with Donald Trump over immigration.

Ramos explained on Fusion how he was ejected from Trump's press conference with the media for jumping in without being called on before he was allowed back in to ask a question.

"As a reporter, my job is to simply ask questions and that's why I'm here," Ramos said.

RAMOS: We came into the press conference — and of course I was authorized to be in the press conference — and reporters started asking questions.

After two or three questions I thought it was my turn and my right to ask a question, so I stood up and started asking Mr. Trump a question on immigration. On the fact that he cannot deport 11 million, and the fact that he cannot deny citizenship to the children born in this country, and to the fact that he cannot build a 1,900 mile wall between Mexico and the United States. And right in the middle of the question, Mr. Trump said that I couldn’t keep on asking my question.

I am a reporter, an immigrant, and a U.S. citizen and I have the right to ask any questions of anyone. So I kept on asking my question and at that point two agents, members of his security team, came to me and pushed me out of the press conference. : I stayed outside the room and after about maybe 5-10 minutes somebody from his team told me that if I was interested in going back to the room to ask him a question.

And I said yes, so I went back. And I, suddenly I was granted the permission to ask him a question and I did. I asked him some questions — and right before he left I asked him another question on Latinos. And that’s it. So as a reporter my job is simply to ask questions and that’s why I am here.
