Univision host Jorge Ramos is showing his partisan bias by celebrating the indictment of former President Donald Trump. This isn’t the first time that the anchor has shown considerable bias against the former president.
Ramos holds a position of significant influence due to his position at the Spanish-language news channel.
Ramos said that the indictment of the former president was a “beautiful act.” He said that former presidents of his country of birth, Mexico, were “murderers, corrupt, election fraudsters and cheaters, thieves and magicians.”
He said that these former presidents had used their power to make their relatives wealthy and that this is why “the indictment of former U.S. President Donald Trump is so instructive.”
The latest controversy isn’t the only one for the host. Ramos has been accused by conservatives of furthering the Democratic Party’s interests for years.
Ramos has previously written about a number of items, including calling for Democrats to repeal the filibuster. He has also called for Democrats to push for gun control.
In 2017, Ramos wrote that “gun-related homicides can be reduced dramatically if access to firearms is restricted.”
“Why can’t we do it in the United States?” he wrote.

He said that the balance of rights and violence “is now broken” and that “shootings have become a dreadfully common occurrence.”
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Ramos said that the news media had an obligation not to be unbiased when reporting on the candidacy of then-candidate President Trump.
Ramos called Trump “the most divisive, polarizing and disrupting figure in American politics in decades.”
He added that “neutrality is not an option.”
Ramos’ daughter Paola Ramos worked for the Obama White House and on Hillary Clinton’s 2017 campaign. She served as the Deputy Director of Hispanic Media for the campaign.
Furthermore, the younger Ramos has been an advocate for other left-wing causes, including as host of Vice’s program “LatinX.”
In 2019, the elder Ramos agreed with a guest that the border wall proposed by Trump wouldn’t work.
He said so after the guest stated, without evidence, that the former president “wants to keep these children incarcerated and separate families.”
