Donald Trump's ejection of Univision anchor Jorge Ramos at a Tuesday night news conference was "a giant plus" for the Republican presidential candidate, former political adviser Roger Stone told Newsmax TV
"It shows Trump at his best," Stone told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "He was in command of the situation. He was firm, he was fair, he let the guy come back in — but Ramos is a left-wing agitator."

"His daughter works for Hillary Clinton doing Latin outreach," Stone said, referring to Paola Ramos,
who joined the campaign in June. "He was making a speech; he wasn't asking a legitimate question."
Trump asked security to remove Jorge Ramos from the news conference in Dubuque after the anchor asserted that Trump could not accomplish aspects of his immigration policy, including ending automatic citizenship for infants born in the United States to parents in the country illegally.
Trump had not called on Ramos, who was allowed back into the session. Trump then called on him.
The billionaire businessman told NBC's "Today" on Wednesday
that Ramos was "totally, absolutely out of line" — and that's why he was ejected.
"This helped Trump and I'll tell you why," Stone told Hayworth. "The American people realize the elite media is in bed with the elite establishment."
"They prop each other up, they don't like outsiders like Trump asking hard questions about the Clinton-Bush continuum and the problems with our broken political system," he added. "So this was a giant plus for Trump."
