Donald Trump Just Made an Anchor Baby Joke to Ask Jorge Ramos for an Interview
OK, there's good news and bad news. The good news is that Donald Trump and Univision have settled their $500 million lawsuit over the network's dumping of Trump's Miss Universe pageant. The bad news: Now that it's settled, Trump has agreed to an interview with Jorge Ramos, the journalist he threw out of an August press conference, by making a joke at the expense of Mexican Americans.
"Now that I have settled my litigation with Univision, I look forward to sitting down their star anchor (not baby) for an interview," Trump wrote.
An anchor baby is a derogatory term used to describe the children of undocumented immigrants. According to Pew Research Center, 8% of babies born in America are born to undocumented immigrants.
For those who remember, Trump and Univision's problems started with anti-Mexican comments, which makes his latest tweet even more puzzling.
At his June presidential campaign announcement, Trump said that when Mexico sends its people, "they are not sending their best."
He added, "They are sending people that have lots of problems. They are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs and they are bringing crime and their rapists, and some are good people, and I speak to border guards and they tell us what we are getting."
In August, Ramos asked Trump about his proposed immigration plan and Trump responded by telling Ramos to "sit down" repeatedly. Ramos said he had a right to speak, to which Trump responded, "No, you don't. You haven't been called. Go back to Univision."
