Donald Trump is out of NBC, on this point both the Presidential hopeful and the network agree.
But while the network claims it fired Trump (and will not air Miss USA or have Trump host Celebrity Apprentice again), the real estate mogul has a different take on the situation.
Actually at a press conference when NBC made its announcement, Trump told reporters on the scene:
"As far as ending the relationship, I have to do that because my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC.
Ah, yes, Trump’s views on immigration.
Upon announcing his plans to run for President of the United States in 2016, Trump denounced our nation’s immigration policy and said Mexico is sending over people who bring "drugs" and crime."
He also said quite simply of Mexican immigrants: "They’re rapists."
Since making those comments, Univision has pulled out of airing Miss USA, while Cristián de la Fuente and Roselyn Sanchez have pulled out of hosting the ceremony.
Over 200,000 people then signed a petition that called for NBC to sever all ties with Trump, a request the network abided by this morning.
In response to his alleged ousting from the network, Trump’s campaign says in a formal 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.
Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.
Meanwhile, in even more shocking news, Trump says he will ditch his comb over if elected President.
So… what do you think, readers? Does Donald Trump have your vote?
Or how about this question instead: Who would you prefer as President, Trump or Kim Kardashian?
