The president of news and digital for Univision said Trump won’t win because of what he said about Hispanics.

During a podcast with former Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod Monday, Isaac Lee said the Hispanic community is very “worried.” He said he doesn’t believe Trump will win because of his pledge to build a wall, according to CNN. (RELATED: Trump And Univision Settle Miss Universe Lawsuit)

“I think he’s not going to be president because of the way that he has insulted and behaved with the Hispanic community,” Lee said. “He has gone too far. It would be very hard for me to believe that more than 20 or 25 percent of Hispanics would ever support his policies.”

“They’re very worried that what’s being promoted is a speech of hate and divisiveness, that it’s hurtful to everyone, and they’re very worried about what are the consequences of that,” he added. “There has to be some method or some seriousness behind just making accusations.”

“They believe in the American dream and they want to have a better life,” he said.

“So to think that anyone is capable of rallying and corralling 12 million people and sending them back to their countries of origin is either a little naïve or is willing to do things that we have not even started to discuss.”
