Martin: Trump ‘makes my blood boil’

Writes Article

In a Univision op-ed Martin criticizes Trump’s treatment of Jose Ramos.

The fact that an individual like Donald Trump, a candidate for the presidency of the United States for the Republican party, has the audacity to continue to gratuitously harass the Latin community makes my blood boil. When did this character assume he could make comments that are racist, absurd, and above all incoherent and ignorant about us Latinos?..Jorge Ramos was doing HIS JOB as a journalist at a press conference in which he appeared freely and democratically, representing one of the most important Latin television networks in the world. But this new character in American politics verbally attacks him and ejects him from the press conference.

Let’s show that our Latin race is to be respected, let’s not allow a political hopeful to plant his campaign in insult and humiliation. Let’s demand respect for those first generations of Latinos who came to the United States and opened a path for us. We have fought for every right that we have today…Xenophobia as a political strategy is the lowest you can go in search of political power.

Ejects Ramos from press conference

Press Conference

At a press conference before his Iowa speech Trump refuses to answer questions from Univision’s Ramos, who is asking them out of turn.

Trump: Excuse me, sit down, you weren’t called. Sit down.
Ramos: I have the right to ask questions.
Trump: You haven’t been called. Go back to Univision.
Ramos: You can not deport 11 million people.

When Ramos continues, Trump has him removed by security. Trump later says he doesn’t mind if Ramos is let back in. Ramos comes back later and discusses his stance with Trump.
