Univision breaks with Donald Trump over immigration comments

MIAMI – Univision, the United States’ top Spanish-language TV network, severed its ties Thursday with Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Organization over the presidential hopeful’s nasty comments about Mexican immigrants.

In announcing his run for president on Tuesday in a rambling 45-minute speech, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.”

He added: “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

Joining the uproar over those remarks, Univision said it will not broadcast the Miss USA beauty pageant scheduled for July 12 or any other project associated with Trump.

“Today, the entertainment division of Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants,” the company said.

Trump had announced in January that the broadcast rights to Miss Universe and Miss USA had been granted to Univision. That came right after the latest edition of Miss Universe, held in Doral, Florida.

Until then, the rights had been held by Telemundo, another Spanish-language network.

Trump’s comments triggered criticism both in the United States and Mexico. Mexican Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong called them “prejudiced and absurd.”

“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 said.

Trump will not pander to illegal aliens and neither will Senator Ted Cruz and they have made it plain to all morons in both parties and the politically correct police. The GOP elites are for cheap labor; the Democrats and the left to overwhelm our elections with the illegal alien vote. THE OBAMA ELECTED OFFICALS ARE ALL CRIMINALS FOR AIDING AND ABETTING ILLEGAL ALIENS AND FORCING TAXPAYERS TO COVER THEIR LIVING EXPENSES. THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP LAW FOR ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS MUST BE RESCINDED.

DONALD TRUMP WILL FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE OBAMA ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION. The GOP establishment is going to aggressively move against Donald Trump, mainly because HE CANNOT BE CORRUPTED WITH MONEY. The greedy dark heart of the transnational corporations will finally pay a high price in taxes before they can import their auto parts from Mexico or any other product. China will be dealt severely if it manipulates its currency or any other country. The man has billions of dollars so they are already using their influence, their vast resources to belittle him. I for one don’t want another President as Obama and unfortunately I voted for him. I really thought he was different to rest of either political party. Instead he has divided our country and it seems to the Independents he’s more interested in settling illegal aliens then the welfare of vets and Senior citizens.

AS JUST ONE OF THE MILLIONS OF FREE THINKING AMERICANS, I’LL NEVER VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT AGAIN. I DON’T WANT TO BE CONTROLLED BY A LEFTIST GOVERNMENT AGAIN. Obama very effectively he has driven millions upon millions of illegal aliens into the United States as he has ushered illegal executive orders to supply foreigners with amnesty along with welfare programs. Further the Border Patrol with probably the lowest morale of any federal agency not to apprehend people who cross our border. There are laws in this nation and illegal aliens who have broken our laws, should be rounded up and removed—not matter the cost? Taxpayers are FORCED to spend 60 to 100 Billion dollars annually and Democrats justify it. This money belongs to the taxpayer, not illegal aliens who scorned our laws. If money should be spent, then exit buses to Mexico. Obama has become anti-American in his treatment of Israel, his early removal of missile bases in Poland and ignored sending heavy duty armaments to the Ukraine and to Kurds to fight the gathering plague of the butchers in ISIS. American can only survive by showing our strength and not backing down to any foreign nation as this Obama Administration.

I am looking for a different type of presidential hopeful. A celebrity business man who is not encumbered by wealthy donors, transnational corporations that buy the votes of congressman American citizens. Obama has never represented the American People, for he has gone against US Constitution and the Rule of Law.
? A money man himself who through business acumen became an honest billionaire and has shown to me through his vocal expression that he cannot be tempted by the affluent entities that run this country in the shadows. I am stumping for Donald Trump as somebody who has a real dream for America. I am walking door to door offering a slip of paper naming issues he wishes to resolve. He will eradicate the IRS for a flat tax, with no absconders. Rescind or amend the bad fast-track trade deal that includes NAFTA. He pledges to remake our nation so it reaches new heights and smashes the communistic-socialist mindset of the Obama Administration; in stopping the Marxist ideology that Russia’s Dictator Putin represents?

Crony capitalism will be stopped in its tracks, as Trump cannot be blackmailed or coerced. He has too much money for that. I believe him when he says, that he will build a great wall between the US and Mexico, closing once and for all the broken, holed fences and hundreds of miles of open land. Both the GOP and the Democrats are led blindly or with intent by the Liberal Progressive radicals in keeping the border open. Be vigilant in upcoming election, as illegal aliens driven by the Liberal zealots will be prevalent in sending non citizens fraudulently to vote who could easily affect the outcomes. Despite debuting at number two on the New York Times bestseller list, Ann Coulter’s latest blockbuster book Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole has received virtually no mainstream media attention outside of Fox News. This is not surprising, as the media does not want to have a real debate about immigration.

Trump knows how to handle (NAFTA) North American Free Trade Agreement that has damaged our country; killed 70, 000 jobs in it inception as businesses large and small fled to better pastures of cheap labor and less regulations and closed our doors forever. China will not ride us as they have been doing for years, and using our weak negotiators to import cheap, poorly made products. Every free trade agreement under Trump will be renegotiated with heavy regulations and tough people to do it, .or they will end be banned from the greatest consumer nation in the word. Every American should realize we are the greatest consumer nation in the world. In furtherance I don’t care whether Trump is bald, or if he used some entertainer’s music to begin his election endorsements, as long as he can keep this country on the right track? It is guaranteed that anybody who wants to be President for the good of the people, their character will be ripped apart. The media is already voicing their opinions and I am sure the Super Pac ads will soon interrupt the mega pharmaceutical companies’ incessant TV appearance.

Unless we have a President that stands for the American people our fate is sealed. Currently, akin to Lemmings we are following Obama and his subordinates over the economic cliff. The latest event is that California’s Democratic assembly in Sacramento is giving illegal aliens free healthcare on the backs of the taxpayer. I think when America has a climbing treasury deficit of 18 Trillion dollars; we should be covering the costs for our vets, senior citizens and NOT illegal aliens. Trump maybe a somewhat poor orator but he makes more sense then the growing number of political hacks, except for Ted Cruz and one or two others. As for another Bush Dynasty or Hillary Clinton, I would never vote for either. Madam Hillary has a ton of questionable ethical baggage from her first entering politics to the Clinton Foundation and more and more voters are falling away from her influence.

Are you in search of the unrestrained truth and not the rhetoric or propaganda from the GOP establishment or the Democrats? Then click on this is unbiased review of legal, non-profit foundation that blatantly tells you the facts about corruption in Federal, state and local government. In many instances this administration and Congress ‘believe they are above the law’, but Judicial Watch carefully examines the law and will take them to court to be held accountable? The American News network, 7/24 cable broadcast offers world wide news, and not the prejudiced, misleading partisan news that has leanings of either Democrats, liberal or even the Republicans.
