JORDI ÉVOLE: This program will be titled, “Mr. Trump, Pardon the Interruption”. And you two are journalists that have interrupted…

JORGE RAMOS, SENIOR ANCHOR, UNIVISION: Very proudly…

ÉVOLE: ...Mr. Trump.

JOSÉ DíAZ-BALART: With him, itS always this thing about how you ought to be ashamed. Yo ought to be ashamed of serving the Latino community, you ought to be ashamed of asking a fair, valid, necessary question…

RAMOS: I don’t know how it is in Spain, you could better explain that to us. But here, we have to stand opposite to power. We have to speak on behalf of a community, 60 million Latinos, that is, persons of Latin American origin,that- that don't have a voice, there are only 4 (U.S.) Senators, we should have 20...and if we don’t do…

ÉVOLE: Proportionately, it should be 20?  

RAMOS: Yes, because it should be 20% of the population. 

DíAZ-BALART: The Anglophone, the American sometimes does not see us. They donT know that we don’t exist. They come to this restaurant, to eat Mexican food, and they gather with their families, their friends...and they don’t know. They don’t see those who are working. They don’t see the dishwashers, the ones who prepare the food, They don’t see those who work in the fields. They don’t see them. 

It is as though there are Two Americas in this country.

RAMOS: The (America) in the living room, and the one in the kitchen.

DíAZ-BALART:  ...in the kitchen.

RAMOS: And you go into the kitchens, and America works thanks to us. Many people do not like this new America. It is a mixed, multiracial, multicultural, multiethnic America, and Donald Trump precisely reflects that population, mostly traditional and conservative, that doesn’t want America to keep changing so much.
