Love him or hate him, Trump doesn’t allow the media to control the message, something the Republican Party should be taking note of!

Trump’s latest dust-up occurred in Iowa on Tuesday with Jorge Ramos, a popular anchor for Univision.

From video footage of the event, it’s clear Ramos stood up and started asking Trump questions without having been called on, and Trump wasn’t having it.

“Sit down,” Trump said repeatedly.

Ramos continued to ask questions: “You cannot build a 1,900-mile wall,” Ramos said in reference to Trump’s proposed immigration plan.

“You cannot deport 11 million people,” Ramos also said.

Trump first tried to ignore Ramos, but quickly had the veteran reporter removed from the event in a truly unprecedented move.
