Univision’s news chief responded Tuesday to Donald Trump’s exchange Tuesday with the network’s anchor Jorge Ramos.

“We’d love for Mr. Trump to sit down for an in-depth interview with Jorge to talk about the specifics of his proposals,” Isaac Lee, president of Univision News and CEO of Fusion said in a statement.

Trump engaged in a heated back-and-forth Tuesday at press conference for his presidential campaign in Iowa. When Ramos attempted to ask Trump a question, the candidate shut him down, saying “Go back to Univision.” Security then removed Ramos. But the reporter later returned, engaging in an extended exchange with Trump.

During the back and forth, Trump spoke at length about immigration, “They have some rough illegal immigrants in those gangs,” he said. He added, “If they come from Mexico, do you mind if I send them back to Mexico?”

He also taunted Ramos, telling the anchor, “I have a bigger heart than you do.”

The candidate also gloated about his pending lawsuit against Univision. He is suing the company for $500 million for dropping the the Miss USA pageant, which Trump co-owns, from its network’s air.
