ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was thrown out of a Donald Trump event on Tuesday (August 25) when he tried to ask the GOP presidential candidate a question after the candidate called on another reporter. During a brief media availability before a rally in Dubuque, Iowa, the GOP candidate fielded questions ranging from immigration to campaign finance to opinions about fellow candidates. After calling on another reporter, Ramos persisted in asking a question. "Excuse me, sit down. You weren't called!" Trump said. "Sit down. Sit down. Sit down!" "No you don't. Go back to Univision," Trump said when Ramos protested that he had "the right to ask a question." Eventually, security escorted Ramos from the room. "I don't believe I ever met him, except he started screaming and I didn't escort him out, you'll have to talk to security," Trump said later, when another reporter asked about Ramos' removal. "Certainly he wasn't chosen. I chose you and you're asking me questions. He just stands up and starts screaming so, you know, maybe he's at fault also." Trump stated Ramos would be welcome back to the press conference and he'd be happy to take questions from him. Later, Ramos, who accused Trump on CNN last night of "spreading hate" over his controversial remarks on immigration, was in fact allowed back into the room and engaged in a long and sometimes heated exchange with Trump about his immigration policies. Trump wrapped up the exchange saying the two would have many conversations in the future. The press conference was followed by a rally that drew about 3,000 people.
