Donald Trump is in a whole lot of trouble following his derogatory comments about Mexican’s but instead of trying to save face, the Republican presidential hopeful insists that his racist comments are ‘totally accurate’ in a new interview!
Yeah, Donald Trump really is standing by his comments that migrants from Mexico are rapists and drug-runners. Univsion has dropped their coverage of the upcoming Miss USA pageant and during his new interview, Donald has announced his plans to sue the network for $500million — find out more!
Trump said that he actually already filed the paperwork for a $500million lawsuit against Univision during his interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly on June 30. He said that the network “didn’t even send me a letter” when they decided to drop coverage of Miss USA. Trump co-owns the Miss Universe organization, which is why they made the decision to drop coverage after his highly offensive comments about Mexicans.
In case you missed it, Trump made the anti-Mexican remarks on June 16, in the middle of a his speech in which he announced his decision to run for president. He said, “When do we meet Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically. The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with them. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. It’s coming from more than Mexico.”
And yes, as we said above, Trump is sticking with his comments calling them “accurate” during his interview with Bill O’Reilly on June 30! HollywoodLifers, do you think Trump is right to sue Univsion? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
