Univision Boots Miss Universe Telecast After Trump Remarks

The Spanish-language network announced it is cutting ties with the Miss Universe Organization, which is partially owned by Trump. During his speech last week to announce his run for the White House, Trump said Mexico wasn’t sending its best across the U.S. border, but people who are bringing drugs and crime. The remarks were strongly criticized by prominent Mexican Americans and Latinos. Trump responded on Twitter saying Univision wants to back out of a signed contract because he exposed the terrible trade deals the U.S. makes with Mexico.
