The Battle of Donald Trump vs. Jorge Ramos

I often don’t care for Bill O’Reilly.  I find he can be incorrect in some assessments, rude and obnoxious and so I don’t frequently listen or watch him or his show.  However, the commentary regarding the Trump vs. Ramos incident at the Trump rally in Iowa is right on target.

Jorge Ramos, anchorman for Univision TV, which is the largest Hispanic station in the world, clearly was the aggressor.  Ramos didn’t wait to be called on, he stood up and began yelling his questions and comments.  This was NOT an issue of “freedom of the press” as Ramos wants us to believe.
It is no secret that Trump is suing Univision for roughly $40 million.  You can be sure that animosity came into play on both sides.

Jorge Ramos, Univision
I watched the Trump rally in Iowa and saw the entire episode with Ramos, who was, to say the least, as provocative as are the “Black Lives Matter” and Ramos had to believe that since the group has been successful with aggressively interfering with and at campaign rallies, that this brand of aggressive interfering would work for him.  Furthermore, even after Trump answered several of Ramos’ questions, the anchorman didn’t like the answers and aggressively went to other issues.  Ramos did not simply want to ask Trump questions, he went to the rally to try to embarrass Trump and to be an activist for amnesty.
Even when Trump tried to answer his questions, Ramos kept on interrupting him and making statements with more questions.
Jorge Ramos mentioned “11 million illegals” and how in the world Trump was going to return them to their countries of origin.  While he has the right to ask the question, he doesn’t have the right to argue the answer there.  It is more like 30 million illegals in this nation from Mexico and other countries in many areas of the world.

Lastly, Ramos thinks he is an anchor for Univision;  however, as Bill Riley had told him during their recent interview, Ramos is really a commentator or an activist, NOT an anchor or reporter as he calls himself.
People can believe what they want to regarding the incident between Trump and Ramos, but it is my humble opinion that Trump did nothing wrong, in fact, he continued trying to answer questions from an activist anchorman who didn’t really seem to want the answers to those questions.
