Univision anchor Jorge Ramos' testy confrontation with GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump proved him "an activist with a radical agenda" more interested in scoring personal points than honest debate, according to Fox News host and commentator Bill O'Reilly.
In a blistering critique on his webpage,
O'Reilly says Ramos "jumped the line"
at a Trump news conference with a goal "to badger the candidate and get a ton of attention for himself."
"Ramos is an activist with a radical agenda," he writes, noting Ramos charged on CNN
that Trump "is the loudest voice of intolerance, division, and hatred right now in America."
"Ramos is a full-fledge advocate for people, especially Mexicans, who enter the United States of America illegally," O'Reilly argues. "He wants amnesty for illegal aliens and actually doesn't seem to be very keen on the idea of a border between the USA and the country of his birth."
The Fox News host calls that immigration stance "extreme" and "far to the left of even his daughter's employer or any other Democratic candidate."
"Whether or not you agree with Donald Trump on immigration or anything else, whether you adore or abhor the man, there's no doubt that he engages in the debate," O'Reilly writes – issuing a challenge for Ramos to appear on O'Reilly's Fox News show, "The O'Reilly Factor."
"The same cannot be said for Jorge Ramos."
