Looks like Donald Trump’s run in with Jorge Ramos has him shook. According to NBC News, today Trump cancelled his upcoming Q&A session with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, which was slated to place on October 8.
The Q&A has previously featured Sen. Bernie Sanders, Gov. Martin O’Malley, and Sen. Ted Cruz. But Trump will sit out his turn because he felt he was going to be “put on trial” –God forbid someone actually hold him accountable for the racist, insulting, and factually incorrect things he says. Moreover he did not want to agree to the USHCC’s rules for the session – rules which none of the other candidates who have appeared in the Q&A thus far have taken issue with. Ohio Gov. John Kasich is scheduled to participate on Tuesday.
The USHCC had been on the receiving end of some criticism for even inviting Trump to participate in the first place, with critics claiming it would give him a platform to spread his vitriol. Others, however, saw it as a way to “alter the narrative on immigration.” If anyone could use this education, it’s Trump.
