Donald Trump just doxed Univision star Jorge Ramos
This man wants to become president.
Trump, you see, has a very complicated relationship with the media that’s only become trickier since he said Mexican immigrants were “rapists.” Of course, he then added that “some, I assume, are good people.”
Many Mexicans were furious with the remarks. As a result, Univision, the world’s largest Spanish-language television network, canceled its planned airing of Trump’s Miss USA pageant and announced that they would severe all business ties from Trump.
Trump, who later said “I love the Mexican people,” plans to sue Univision.
Trump and Univision’s relationship is about to get messier since he appears to have just doxed Jorge Ramos, Univision’s most recognizable news anchor.
In an Instagram post, Trump published a letter from Ramos to Trump that includes Ramos’ personal cellphone number.
Hoping to avoid business troubles for the sake of journalism, Ramos wrote a personal letter to Trump asking for an interview.
“I’m sure you have a lot of things to say, and I have a lot of things to ask,” Ramos wrote. “I know this is an important issue for you and for me.”
Trump, already furious at the news of Univision’s actions, declined the offer and then posted the letter on Instagram complete with Ramos’s phone number and a mocking message about how Ramos is “begging me for interviews.”
To follow this up, an angry Trump wrote a letter to Univision CEO Randy Falco saying, “under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use Trump National Doral, Miami—its gold courses or any of its facilities. Also please stop work and close the gate which is being constructed between our respective properties.”
Not satisfied with cutting business ties, Trump called Falco a coward.
“It’s too bad you didn’t have the courage to call me yourself instead of delegating the task to Beau,” Trump wrote.
Trump then put his crosshairs on Mexico at large.
“Please congratulate your Mexican government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States. However, inform them that should I become president, those days are over. We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a meaningful border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists,” Trump wrote in the letter.
