Trump Trumped By NBC As Network Drops His Pageants

Continued fallout from remarks by real estate entrepreneur and television producer Donald Trump impacted more of his business. Derogatory statements made by the erstwhile Republican presidential hopeful about Mexican immigrants have led to several networks dropping programs produced by Trump stated Kevin Seawright.

The latest “thanks but no thanks” came from NBC. The network announced it would not air the Miss USA or the Miss Universe pageants. This announcement comes only days before the Miss USA pageant would have normally aired.

Mexican networks Televisa and Univision previously announced they too would have nothing more to do with Trump and his pageants. Televisa said in a statement, “Mr. Trump has not shown understanding and respect for Mexican migrants and has offended the entire Mexican population.”

Trump continued to defend his commentary in the media. He referred to NBC as “weak” and complained the network won’t “stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.”
