trumpNBC Universal following Univision’s lead!

The network is also severing its business ties to Donald Trump.

The Miss USA pageant, scheduled for July 12, will no longer air on the network – nor will the Miss Universe pageant, scheduled for next January.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the company said in a statement on Monday. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

Speaking to reporters after a campaign event in Chicago, Trump said he had enjoyed a “great” relationship with NBC but would not back down on his views about immigration. Trump is saying that he may sue NBC.

He also released the following statement:

“If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court.”

Adios, Trump!
