During his 2016 presidential announcement, Donald Trump, best known for his foolishness, made highly offensive comments about Mexicans: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” he said. “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.”
In response to this ignorant and baseless claims, NBC, which airs The Apprentice (Trump’s television show) and The Miss Universe & Miss USA pageant (which Trump partially owns), cut business ties with Trump.
In a written statement, Trump responded: “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.”
