The meeting was originally scheduled for next Thursday, Oct. 8, at the Newseum in Washington D.C. A statement through the USHCC mentioned Trump’s “decision to forfeit the Q&A se sion was motivated by the concern of being ‘put on trial.’ ” The USHCC stated Trump was unwilling to abide by the terms of the event:”The USHCC refused to change the format of the forum, show any favoritism, exclude any i sues or topics, or grant any immunity from objective scrutiny of his policies. As a result, despite having agreed on numerous occasions, Trump has now reversed his position and has elected to not participate in the Q&A Se sion making him the only candidate from either party to Curtis Lazar Jersey do so.”Trump initially agreed for the Q&A se sion last month at a meeting with the chamber’s president, Javier Palomarez, in New York. That earlier meeting came after Trump’s first wave of controversial remarks on immigration, including calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and “drug dealers” and releasing his plan to deport millions of immigrants and build a large wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump also riled Latinos after kicking Univision anchor Jorge Ramos out of a pre s conference (he later let him back in).”Withdrawing within the Q&A can only suggest that Trump himself believes his views are indefensible before a Hispanic audience,” the statement in the USHCC reads. A spokesman for the chamber also reported it had previously “severed busine s relations” with Trump “indefinitely.” Trump’s marketing campaign told NPR via email that the candidate will be “speaking to a capacity crowd” in Nevada that day instead and that he continues to be fully commited to achieving out to Hispanics “in additional genuine and effective ways”:”Donald J. Trump today announced he will not be participating in the October 8th USHCC (United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) Q&A, as requested by its President and CEO Javier Palomarez. Mr. Trump will be speaking to a capacity crowd at a campaign rally in Nevada on that date. Additionally, Mr. Palomarez proceeds to leverage the national media attention surrounding Mr. Trump to benefit his organization and exploit Mr. Trump to enlist additional support and increase interest and revenue in his coalition including asking Mr. Trump to join his chamber for a fee amounting to between $25,000 and $2 million dollars, which Mr. Trump refused to do. Mr. Trump remains committed to reaching out on the Hispanic Community in additional legitimate and succe sful approaches as he proceeds to share his vision to make America Great All over again.”(For the record, the USHCC called Trump’s statement about the fees “a lie.”) According on the newest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 67 percent of Hispanics have a “very negative” opinion of Trump. Looking fwd to attending the @USHCC Q&A with @JPalomarez on Oct 6th – Get the details here: -John John Kasich (@JohnKasich) October 1, 2015 It’s worth noting that despite Trump’s decision to decline the USHCC invitation, other Republicans are still eagerly participating. Gov. John Kasich of Ohio is scheduled to participate in a similar Q&A se sion on Oct. 6 at the Newseum, the same venue where Trump was scheduled to be.
