Two Univision crews – one from the network and another from a local affiliate – were told they could not cover the event, after earlier being told they were cleared to attend, according to ABC’s Miami affiliate WPLG. The Trump Organization owns resort in Doral, FL.
Trump has a contentious relationship with Univision, which dumped his Miss USA Pageant broadcast after Trump announced his candidacy with a speech in which he talked about rapists, murderers and “some good people” coming illegally into the United States via the Mexican border. Shortly thereafter, Trump told Univision — which has its headquarters near the Doral resort — that they no longer would have access to the facilities. In August, Ramos was escorted out of a Trump campaign news conference, when the newsman interrupted a Q&A, demanding that his question on immigration be heard. Ramos was allowed to return to the room not long thereafter and ended up getting the most Q&A time of that news conference.
Trump is making his first Florida appearance since announcing his candidacy in June.
