Trump Supporter To Jorge Ramos: ‘Get Out Of My Country’

Even after Univision host Jorge Ramos was kicked out of a Donald Trump press conference for challenging the GOP 2016 frontrunner, the angry language didn’t stop once Ramos had been escorted to the hallway.

“Get out of my country. Get out,” a Trump supporter told Ramos after he had been escorted from the press conference in a video posted by Fusion. In the video, Ramos calmly responds to the supporter that he is, in fact, a U.S. citizen.

“Well, whatever … it’s not about you,” the supporter said, aggressively gesturing at the Univision host.

The Trump-Ramos tussle began when Ramos began shouting questions at Trump during a Tuesday evening press conference. Trump told Ramos to “go back to Univision” before security physically removed him from the press conference.

After the supporter made the remark to Ramos in the hallway, a Trump campaign staffer told Ramos he could come back into the press conference as long as he waited to be called upon before asking questions.

Ramos agreed, and eventually he and Trump engaged in a back-and-forth about immigration policy.
