(Translated transcript)

JORGE RAMOS (HOST): This week, one year ago, Donald Trump ejected me from a press conference in Iowa. I was able to ask him a question about immigraiton, and I told him that he couldn't deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. This is what happened.


DONALD TRUMP: Sit down. Sit down.

RAMOS: I have the right to ask a question.

TRUMP: No you don't. You haven't been called. 

RAMOS: I have the right to ask a question.

TRUMP: Go back to Univision.

RAMOS: You cannot deport 11 million --

TRUMP: Go ahead.

RAMOS: You cannot deport 11 million people. You cannot build a 1900-mile wall. You cannot deny citizenship to children in this country.

TRUMP: Sit down please. You weren’t called.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You were very rude. It's not about you. Get out of my country. Get out. This is not about you.

RAMOS: I'm a U.S. citizen too.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, whatever. No. Univision? No. It's not about you.

RAMOS: It's not about you. It's about the United States.


RAMOS: And that is exactly what happened one year ago. This week, Donald Trump apparently changed his position about deportations, and now he's saying that he will not deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. It is not very clear what Trump's immigration position will be. Apparently he will tell us this week. We don't know. But what is clear is that Donald Trump does not want to speak to us. And for one year, one year, we have been asking him for an interview, and up until the only answer that we have gotten from Donald Trump is “no.”
