Donald Trump Stands Up to Univision

Donald Trump is not an opponent who sits things out. Recently, Univision decided not to air his Miss Universe pageants over remarks he made about Hispanic immigrants. In a statement on Thursday, Trump's presidential campaign said:

“The Mexican government and others are putting tremendous pressure on Univision to break their signed and fully effective contract with the Miss Universe Organization. [This is] because Mr. Trump has been exposing the public, and the world, the significant damage that is being done at the southern border, and the terrible and costly trade deals that the United States is incompetently making with Mexico. These deals are great for Mexico and horrible for the United States."

Univision Communications Inc. announced earlier Thursday that it will not telecast Trump’s annual Miss USA competition next month. Univision released this statement:

“At Univision, we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country."

Univision also terminated its relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which Trump partly owns. During his presidential launch, Trump said that the "U.S. has become the dumping ground for everybody else's problems. They're sending people who have lots of problems. They bring in drugs, they bring in crime, they're rapists. I assume some are good people."

On Thursday, he said “Mexican leadership has been doing serious damage to the United States by out-negotiating our representatives and political leaders. I have great respect for Mexico and love the Mexican people, but my loyalty is to the United States and making our country great again." Trump also countered that Univision is contractually obligated to air his Miss USA and Miss Universe competitions in Mexico and South America.

He said that the arrangement was part of an “iron-clad,” five-year deal worth $13.5 million with no early outs.Trump said his refusal to change his stance on immigration separates him from candidates like Jeb Bush who he stated “Bush would say, ‘I’m sorry, keep ripping us off."
