NBC Issues Statement on Donald Trump: He Pretty Much Sucks!

by at .

Here is something you almost never see:

A television network admonishing a Presidential candidate.

In the wake of Donald Trump announcing he's running for the highest office in the land, however, NBC has felt a need to distance itself from The Celebrity Apprentice host.

Donald Trump for President

"Donald Trump’s opinions do not represent those of NBC, and we do not agree with his positions on a number of issues, including his recent comments on immigration," the network said on Thursday.

This statement comes on the heels of Univision confirming it is dropping Trump and NBC Universal’s co-produced Miss USA pageant due to the candidate's recent remarks.

Among Trump's more controversial/totally insane quotes?

He said at a press conference this month that Mexico is "sending [America] 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."

In response, J Balvin pulled out of performing at the Miss USA Pageant, while Roselyn Sanchez has now pulled out of hosting the event.

On Facebook, the actress says she will "not tolerate the so disrespectful and hurtful words out of the mouth of Mr. Trump."

On Thursday, meanwhile, Trump  defended himself on Twitter.

He also declared he’s going to sue Univision for violating its contract.

“Univision wants to back out of signed @MissUniverse contract because I exposed the terrible trade deals that the U.S. makes with Mexico” and “Mexican gov doesn’t want me talking about terrible border situation & horrible trade deals.

"Forcing Univision to get me to stop—no way!"

Ummm... Vote Trump?
