Ricky Martin Slams on Trump:

Ricky Martin has joined the long list of celebrities that have taken a stand against Donald Trump’s xenophobic statements against Mexicans and Latino immigrants.  When Jorge Ramos from Univision was thrown out of Trump´s press conference this last Tuesday, Martin felt that he had had enough of Trump.

On an op-ed essay for Univisión and translated for Billboard, Ricky Martin expressed that he’s had it with Trump’s “racist, absurd” comments.

"The fact that an individual like Donald Trump, a candidate for the presidency of the United States for the Republican Party, has the audacity to continue to gratuitously harass the Latin community makes my blood boil," Martin said.

Referring to Univision’s anchor Jorge Ramos being escorted outside Trump’s press conference, Martin said, "Ramos was doing HIS JOB as a journalist at a press conference in which he appeared freely and democratically, representing one of the most important Latin television networks in the world and with the same right to freely exercise his profession as all other journalists.”

Ricky Martin recognized that Trump’s behavior comes as no surprise but he also expressed being surprised at the Latino community for not firmly standing against the racist declaration of the business mogul.  “This action from Trump doesn't surprise me, what does surprise me is that as Hispanics we continue to accept the aggressions and accusations of people like him who attack our dignity.”

"Enough is enough! If we are united for some things we should be united for others. We have already shown the United States who we are and we cannot allow this behavior,” Martin continued.

Martin went on to accuse Donald Trump of using lies and barbarities to stay relevant.  To the 43-year-old singer, this is the lowest you can get in politics.  Martin ended his letter encouraging Latinos to unite and respect their dignity.
