LAREDO, Texas – Presidential Candidate Donald Trump had some harsh words towards Spanish news outlet Telemundo when one of their top anchors tried to verbally attack him during his visit to this border city. “Telemundo should be ashamed,” Trump told the saddened reporter during a press event with various law enforcement officials.
The comment came after famed reporter Jose Diaz Balart asked Trump if he should apologize to the Hispanic community for calling them rapists and drug dealers.
“He didn’t say that,” a woman yelled out.
Trump said that those comments were part of media attack against him where his words have been misrepresented to tarnish him.
“That’s the misrepresentation of the media, they half sentence and then they take a quarter of a sentence and then put it all together,” Trump said.
During his visit to Laredo, Trump was faced with a swarm of news outlets, most of which appeared to be hostile toward him in the type of questions that were being asked.
“Mr. Trump You are being called a racist and a bigot,” a female reporter with a British accent yelled out as the presidential candidate arrived at another event.
“You know what’s really fun, I’m right there suing Univision for $500 million,” Trump said to much cheering and applause from the audience.
In another attack by mainstream media, as Trump was preparing to leave Laredo, he approached the large number of reporters gathered there to take a question. Another reporter with a British accent, this time a man who identified himself as someone from the BBC, asked Trump about the harsh comments from Rupert Murdoch about being an embarrassment to America.
Upon hearing the question Trump turned back and walked straight to his plane.
