Donald Trump has a big reason for taking this Presidential bid seriously: he's got some space in his calendar to fill.
Although the real estate mogul isn't exactly hurting for business opportunity, NBC announcced today that they've cut all ties with Trump after he made what they considered to be disaparging comments about illegal immigrants (specifically Mexicans) in his initial announcement speech. That means that NBC has dropped Trump from the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, mostly, since Mark Burnett is the producer of The Apprentice and Trump had already parted ways as the host of the show (while his campaign is in full swing, anyway).
NBC is ending its business relationship with Donald Trump over his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.
"At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values," NBC said in a statement. "Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump."
