Following confrontations with a highly respected Spanish-language news anchor and a longtime Fox News personality, Donald Trump is seemingly turning his back on journalists.

Just before a rally in Dubuque, Iowa, Trump took questions during a quick press conference. Univision anchor Jorge Ramos stood up and began asking questions about immigration. Trump answered him by saying: “Excuse me. Sit down. You weren’t called. Sit down. Sit down. You haven’t been called. Go back to Univision.”

Security guards came over and escorted Ramos out of the conference.

Here’s a video of what happened:

Trump said his refusal to take Ramos’ questions was because he was “out of order,” and said he’d be fine with allowing the anchor back in. Later, Ramos did return and had an exchange with Trump about his plan to build a wall on the border of the United States and Mexico and deporting undocumented immigrants.
