These are the type of fanatics Donald Trump's xenophobia appeals to.

Donald Trump had Fusion and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos kicked out of his press conference in Dubuque, Iowa Tuesday evening after Ramos interrupted another reporter to ask a question.

Ramos was eventually allowed to return to the room, and the two exchanged an extended period of dialogue about issues of immigration.

While Ramos was waiting to be let back inside, a man wearing a Donald Trump sticker approached Ramos in the area outside the press conference to tell him, “This is not about you. Get out of my country.”

In the video above, it looks like the man approaches Ramos, who is a United States citizen, completely unprovoked. Ramos turns around to listen to what the man is saying, and then replies, “I am a U.S. citizen.”
