That is extremely biased to cut the video off at that point.

I'm just going to assume you people didn't actually watch the Q&A session and don't know the whole story.

Trump was asking a question to the guy in front of him. Ramos stood up and started rambling. Trump kept trying to listen to the reporter whose turn it was, but Ramos wouldn't shut up. Trump gave a hand motion to his bodyguard and he pushed Ramos out of the room for disrupting the meeting.

About two minutes later, a reporter asked about the situation and Trump said he didn't mind if Ramos came back, as long as he behaved himself. Ramos was let back in, Trump gave Ramos a turn, they had friendly banter and everything was OK.

Trump was very patient with a guy standing up, out of turn, trying to talk over the journalist who had been called on. This cut of the video is just a misleading slander-piece that FOX is pushing because of the recent Trump VS Kelley debacle.

I was impressed with how Trump handled it. He wouldn't let the other guy run all over him, but he still let him talk after he was given a time-out.

But, yeah, I do feel cutting the video off at that point is an attempt to slander Trump. Regular people will think higher of him for having a backbone, but some older people and women may be turned off by perceived disrespect towards a reporter.

Yeah I think he's one of the biggest dicks in the world, and in the world of politics I don't think anyone is used to a candidate being such an open dickhead. They think they can make a scene like that and the candidate will have to save face and be the one to compromise. But Trump just says, "Go back to Univision." Priceless.

It's intended to be a slander piece but to people with an IQ greater than that of a goldfish it's obvious Trump handled that far better than most people would.

I rarely tread into the Facebook cesspool, but the Facebook "news summary" over on the top right of the screen summarized the event as, "Trump forcibly removes Latino reporter from press conference."

When I clicked to see what news links would have generated this summary, it was a string of "Trump is a racist for removing a Mexican and telling him to 'go back to Univision,'" and not one of them mentioned Ramos was being a dick by talking out of turn and asking eight questions while all the other reporters were waiting to ask one. The media on both sides (conservative establishment and mainstream progressive media) are still trying their hardest to torpedo Trump.
