DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWQC) – The room has cleared out now but thousands of people were in Dubuque to see Donald Trump.

Those at the event took many different points away from the Trump rally.

“That’s his selling point because people are so tired of the promises of politicians and then the breaking of the promises of politicians,” East Dubuque resident Rhonda Jordan said.

“How he’s going to bring jobs back I guess,” Preston resident Darwin Franzen said. “That’s most, most important.”

Trump also touched on foreign relations and made jabs at his opponents.

“Marco Rubio is a nice guy and so is Jeb Bush, I think he is a nice person but I don’t care,” Trump said. “I don’t care if he’s nice because I want somebody that is going to make great deals and make us rich again.”

But what most of the crowd didn’t see live was the back and forth with a Univision news anchor that happened in a media presser before trump hit the stage.

“You haven’t been called,” Trump remarked. “Go back to Univision.”

The anchor asked questions about immigration but was escorted out.

“The main anchor of Univision was just escorted out of your news conference. Do you think you handled that situation correctly?” a reporter asked.

“I don’t know I mean I don’t know really much about him,” Trump said. “I don’t believe I’ve ever met him except he started screaming. I didn’t escort him out. You’ll have to talk to security whoever security is.”

Sure enough, the anchor was allowed back inside and the heat picked up where it left off.

Right now, Trump is leading a number of polls. He began his speech by pointing that out. But the Univision anchor pointed out that many Latinos are disappointed in him.
