‘Rejected’ Spanish-Speaking Journo ‘Didn’t Really’ Have Trump Interview

The TV reporter who was allegedly kicked out of Trump Tower for speaking Spanish ahead of an interview with Donald Trump did not actually have a scheduled sit-down, and was there to try and get one—reported CNN’s Dylan Byers, who quoted the network’s editor in chief. Citing unnamed sources, BuzzFeed News reported Monday that TV Azteca freelance correspondent Marcos Stupenengo got the boot from Trump’s camp after he was overheard speaking Spanish in a phone coversation. That report claimed Stupenengo “got an interview” with Trump, and quoted the journalist as saying, “I can say that after 13 years of journalism, worse things have happened to me.”
