Donald Trump Dumped: NBC Drops The Donald Over Derogatory Remarks About Immigrants

NBC Universal declared Monday it is “ending its business relationship” with real estate tycoon and TV host Donald Trump over “recent disparaging proclamations” he made about immigrants in a speech launching his 2016 presidential campaign.

“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the network said in a statement. “To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC,” the statement continued.

“In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in The Apprentice on NBC.”

In a speech announcing his bid for the presidency, the GOP candidate said that immigrants are “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some, I assume, are good people.”

A petition on Change.org asking the network to cut ties with Trump had collected over 200,000 signatures at the time of publication.

Univision, the biggest Spanish language network in the United States declared the last week that they would no more air the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants and would cut all business ties with Trump.

Univision’s adversary, Telemundo, is owned by a division of NBCUniversal.
