If Trump pledges to kick the Press Corps out of their White House offices, I might just have to vote for him.

    Trump handled this much better than Sanders handled black lives matter. And he didn't come off as a bully, like Christie hollering "sit down and shut up".

    I also thought it was very symbolic of Trump's immigration proposal. Kick out the lawbreakers, then if they are willing to follow the rules, let them back in.

    Still not necessarily a Trump fan, but I like the way he is shaking things up, and refusing to be PC.

      Totally agree. Ramos was there to cause trouble and make a name for himself. Instead he got spanked and was sent to the principal's office. I don't necessarily trust Trump, but he's killing a few liberal sacred cows.

      I am bolstered by the realization that there are still a lot of people who are tired of the PC crap. To give in to such bullying is really a resignation...

      I was very impressed, Ramos was being an asshole, there were 30+ people in the room, and Trump was calling on them in an orderly fashion. Let's be honest, Fox/CNN/CNBC are going to have more eligible voters than Univision, so I'd probably start there too.. nonetheless, he just asked security to escort him out, and allowed the guy to come back in when he had calmed down.

      If there was 'nothing to be afraid of', people wouldn't be panicked, but if you have been in the US for, say, 30 years - working, not paying taxes, not really contributing or assimilating and haven't bother to apply for permanent residency, why not deport them? Mexico for example doesn't allow non-Mexican citizens to own property, so to become a US citizen means to renounce Mexican citizenship and give up their lands/home, etc. So they try to have it both ways - by keeping Mexican citizenship and privileges, while taking advantage of the US economy and our generosity. We wouldn't be doing ANYTHING that any other country doesn't do. Try to buy a house to retire as an ex-pat in Mexico... it doesn't happen... you can LEASE something, but you can't buy it.

      Try (as a white American) to go to Canada and just squat there somewhere, get a job, buy a house, etc.. it doesn't happen, you have to apply for residency/citizenship, prove you are in good health by 2 back-to-back annual medical evaluations paid for out of your own pocket, prove you have at least $200,000 in liquid assets, prove you can obtain employment, etc.

      We're the only dumbies in the world that just let people come in waves.

      We're also a nation of immigrants, and we need to uphold that tradition, and I think immigrants contribute immensely to our culture. But... they need to immigrate legally.

      Donald is probably right, most -legal- immigrants can't stand the line cutters that just swim / jump / run across the border... when it comes time to actually vote and not answer a pollster on the telephone, he will probably carry the 'legal voting' latino vote.

      Christie's a big fart bag. I never liked the guy. A few years back he yelled to a lady protester in the back of a room "Oh, you'll be on your knees later tonight, honey." Or something along those lines. Not a peep from the media about that. For me, that sealed the deal on that big, fat donut-eater.

    Trump handled it perfectly. The guy wouldn't shut up and he waited for security to escort him out. He was allowed back in and Trump gave him plenty of time to ask questions. In my opinion the reporter ended up looking like a pompous ass.

    Saw this video earlier today. It's a misleading headline. The univision anchor was thrown out because he was unruly and disrespectful to Trump and the other reporters.
    I will give credit to Trump for being as patient as he was before sternly tossing him out.

      I agree. Trump does deserve credit. Even some of the PC media agreed with what Trump did. This man is shaking things up. The other candidates should stop being so PC and be more like the "Trumpster."

      Ramos was merely acting like the folks that he represents; he attempted to jump to the front of the line, when another reporter had been chosen. That's the crux of the problem. Do foreigners have the "right" to ignore our laws and invade the country and then claim all kinds of rights which are reserved for CITIZENS?!? The very fact that there are 11 MILLION (or whatever the true number is) in the country constitutes and INVASION, especially when an American can't go the other way and do the same thing without being jailed. Perhaps La Raza is right; it is a reconquista.

      He looked very presidential actually, if that was in the White House Press Briefing Room, no sitting president would tolerate the level of disrespect that Ramos showed toward him.

      I'd start with deporting Ramos.

    I'm having a hard time understanding Trumps ability to poke his finger right into the sore spot that many of us are or have experienced. He seems to have found the underlying frustrations that many people feel and addresses them without flinching. I have no idea as to whether or not he would make a good president, but he has brought some clarity to the issues confronting the average citizen of the United States.

      In my opinion, the incredible levels of unemployment of the millennial generation, their ability to start their lives, or move up the economic ladder has nothing to do with the 'great recession' - it's because of the millions of illegal immigrants taking entry level jobs that teenagers used to be hired for.

      When I was a kid, it took a cast of thousands to operate a McDonalds, now they have a couple of dozen 30-year old illegals.

      Consequently, the youngsters have a hard time getting that first job, and have to put off any kind of employment until graduating from college / etc. practically.

      I started working when I was 15, I've probably been unemployed 10 days out of the last 30 years. It's definitely been more of a struggle for my son, and he's an extremely hard worker, respectful, and dedicated when given the opportunity. The small businesses just don't want to be bothered with working around a school schedule, etc., when they don't have to.

      We've really stunted the development of the largest generation in US history (it's larger than the Baby Boomers actually).

    Ramos is not a journalist, but an activist. As such, he has no place in the forum in which he so rudely interrupted the person who was actually called upon. Trump handled it well. By letting him back in later,Trump showed greater courtesy than was even necessary.

    Hello Eudaimonia,
    I have seen Jorge Ramos interviewed many times. All he does is act rude and filibuster. Once started, like so many leftists, he is obnoxious, dismissive of any other point of view and oblivious to contrary facts, the rule of law or basic decorum. When he was allowed back in he was granted more time and patience than deserved.
    Respectfully,
    O.A.

    Ramos was trying to pull a bully pulpit on Trump; I think he did the right thing, by, in essence, giving this journalist who was acting like a spoiled child a "time out". I did notice he did allow him back in; Ramos still tried to cram is nonsense in, but Trump handled him very professionally.

    Trump 1, Ramos 0

    "I am a reporter, an immigrant, and a U.S. citizen and I have the right to ask any questions of anyone."

    No, Mr. Ramos, you don't. Any time someone else is involved, their consent is necessary. And especially at a press conference. You are permitted to come, but there are dozens of other reporters who also have questions to ask, therefore there must be a systematic approach. You wanted to ignore all that.

      Part of the self-entitlement generation. Maybe he should go stand in the corner until he acts like a respectable young man, not a brat. If he were my kid I'd tan his hide...

    I liked the way Trump handled it. He was under pressure and the only thing I would have added to his “Go to Univision” part would be “Go take some lessons in civility and good manners at Univison, and come back when you pass the course.”

    We need Trump in the white house to tell us when the emperor has no clothes, when there are no WMD's in Iraq, and countless other situations. Our current politiicians are basically manipulators and liars. Do we really believe Hillary is going to tell us the truth? Or Obama for that matter. "Pass it and we can read the bill later...."

    I have to wonder if Hillary (who should be in jail already) had said the same things to the same reporter, if the responses here would be the same...?

    I'm less interested in how Trump conducts a meeting, than what kind of "deals" occur in those meetings.

    Trump will only throw out the ones who are critical of him. That's 21st century Presidential!

    • Posted by 5 years, 3 months ago
      Well... since they are all critical of him...

      As far as I'm concerned, no press agency should have an office in the White House, period.
      The Marxocrats will howl about the 1st amendment because their pet propagandists will lose influence, but tossing them out of the WH in no way abridges their freedom of press.

      You all need to go back and review the film again. He wasn’t being critical he was being rude and also he was trying to break up the rhythm of Trumps press conference to fit his agenda. Also do you all know who his daughter works for? Does the name Hilary mean anything?

      So, are you suggesting that he throw out those who are in agreement with him, giving him credit, and acting professionally? Please.

        No, an American President should be able to take criticism and respond with rational thought. In recent administrations the practice has become to suppress people who disagree, for example, free speech zones created by Bush admin to stifle protest. That is disgraceful in America and every president should be held to a higher ethical standard. imo, Trump is an ass (and he is in good company with almost all the other candidates, many members of con-gress, and some of the press, possibly including the person in question.) .

          If you watched the video you would have seen that Trump exhibited much more restraint than, say, John "Don't tase me bro" Kerry, by warning Ramos several times before having his guard walk him out. Its also my understanding that Ramos was a jackass prior before the assemblage, was warned repeatedly, and still allowed to enter.

          In this instance Trump wasn't an ass.
