Translated transcript:

JORGE RAMOS (HOST): Mr. Limón, another question. You said during an interview on CNN that a lot of Hispanics oppose Donald Trump because we’re very emotive or emotional. What did you mean by that?

JUAN CARLOS LIMÓN: Yes, because when -- Latinos, we have that blood. We’re highly emotional. We may perceive different things in different ways.
