Breaking News: #NBCUniversal announced today Monday, June 29, 2015 that they are canceling and ending their business venture relationship with Republican hopeful candidate Donald J. Trump Sr. for the derogatory statements on Immigrants.

Here is the statement that got Donald J. Trump Sr. fired! “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.” He added, “They’re not sending you. 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. And some, I assume, are good people.” He said that on June 16, 2015 during his kick-off Republican campaign.
Here are some facts: Mexico is the United States’ 2nd largest trading partner after Canada. We export $240 billion worth of goods there, making Mexico, a huge customer for our country.
Also there are 31.8 million Mexican-Americans — they account for 10% of the U.S. population. So in one speech, you’ve offended 10% of the U.S. population. That’s a lot of votes! Plus, Hispanic Americans comprise 54 million people and constitute 17 percent of the U.S. population. You’ve likely offended most of that additional group as well.
NBC STATEMENT REGARDING DONALD TRUMP
At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.
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.
In addition, as Mr. Trump has already indicated, he will not be participating in “The Apprentice” on NBC. “Celebrity Apprentice” is licensed from Mark Burnett’s United Artists Media Group and that relationship will continue. – See more at: http://www.nbcuniversal.com/press-release/nbc-statement-regarding-donald-trump#sthash.LUPdA0mN.dpuf
Editor’s Note: Mr. Trump Sr. made a big mistake to make a general statement on immigrants. As you may see we all united to send a message to the network’s that without us the Latinos your business could not exist. It is very disappointing what he said but we hope he learns to keep his mouth shut because now he can see it very clear that he is not going no where with the attitude. We applaud Univision decision for cutting all ties with his beauty pageant shows and now that NBCUniversal does the same they show that they care about the growing Latino/Hispanic immigrant population in the United States of America who has contributed to the better of this country. Once again what just happened to Mr. Donald J. Trump Sr. is his fault and yes he will not make it to The White House. Donald J. Trump Sr. it is not personal it is just Business!
