Univision anchor and major President Donald Trump critic said during an interview he desires to return to his home country, Mexico.

In his televised discussion with MEGA TV host Jaime Bayly, Ramos discussed his role as a journalist in the age of Trump, stressing his sympathy for the millions of American so-called “Dreamers,” who are the focus of an intense political battle.

BAYLY: I believe you are an activist against racism, a topic that you are very sensitive about. You are an activist in favor of immigration, legal and undocumented. You believe it enriches, the mix is good.

RAMOS: Yes

Ramos also denied he is an activist, despite his series of harsh criticisms for Trump.

BAYLY: You are an activist who supports, for example, a free press, of not allowing authoritarian presidents to restrict the right of journalists to ask uncomfortable things. That is activism. Do you not recognize that in that you are an activist?

RAMOS: Let’s see. It’s that I believe the great danger…my first answer, upfront, is no. I am a journalist, not an activist. I am just a journalist who asks questions, no? That is all. That would be my answer, and I would remain silent and I would tell you, like Uribe, next question?

In his latest book, “Stranger: The Challenge of a Latino Immigrant in the Trump Era,” Ramos called 2018 America the “worst time” of his 35 years in the country and said he would like to reside in Mexico again “for a while.”

“I would like to return to the country I left,” Ramos said.
