The Trump campaign is barring Univision journalists from covering an event in Florida, according to reporters at the rally.

His campaign reportedly cited a conflict of interest due to the businessman's ongoing legal dispute with the Spanish-language network.

The GOP front-runner said he is suing Univision for $500 million for backing out of its contract with his “Miss Universe” beauty pageant. The network decided to cut ties with the pageants, which are produced by Trump, after he made comments critical of immigrants from Mexico.

Trump has previously spared with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, kicking him out of a press conference in August after Ramos interrupted another journalist with a question.
