NBC Doesn't Agree with Donald Trump's Immigration Remarks

NBC is trying to distance itself from Donald Trump after his remarks on immigration have drawn widespread criticism and caused Spanish-language networks to drop the upcoming Miss USA pageant.

The pageant, which is produced by the Miss Universe organization (partially owned by Trump), is set to run on NBC in July. Roselyn Sanchez, who was set to co-host, has already withdrawn her participation in the event.

Donald Trump‘s opinions do not represent those of NBC, and we do not agree with his positions on a number of issues, including his recent comments on immigration,” NBC said in a statement (via AP).

In case you missed it, read the comments that Donald made about immigration and also find out what Univision said about dropping the Miss USA telecast.

    Better looking: Donald Trump or a turtle head ? I pick a turtle head. “Hey Trump , put your head back in it’s shell!”

  • reereevee

    It took the Latino community this long to drop him? Of all the nasty things he has said over the years towards other people of color, they now recognize what scum he is?

  • Janis

    I agree with Donald …. we are getting overcrowded here and the green spaces will be affected soon. East US will be one big city.. Is this what we want for our grandchildren??? Not to mention the traffic jams

  • teedofftaxpayer

    Trump may force Univision to air the Pageant but that doesn’t mean the people of Mexico will watch them. Advertisers will back away because they know it will be money wasted.

    The hallmark of oppressive governments is that their media only reports the things if which they approves. Is Univision any better than Pravda was under the strict Soviet regime? Are they not parrots and tools of the government? Is Univision (and NBC) trying to sell us on the absurd notion that illegal aliens in the USA are the *best* people of that nation? If so, heaven help those countries that produce our illegal aliens! Are they saying that among those illegal aliens there are no criminals? No rapists? No needy? What a crock! Like all repressive governments, they view the truth as intolerable, and suppress the expression of the truth. Take care that we do not follow inthose oppressive footsteps. Mainstream networks have already refused to cover SCOTUS’ ruling against Obama’s latest exec action essentially granting amnesty to more illegal aliens. It’s not surprising that Univision retaliates against truthfulness, as Mexico has a corrupt, oppressive government. We need to heed the lessons of history, and take care that we maintain a free, UNBIASED press, a fundamental principle and necessity of democracy and of all free people.

    Ask him what he is talking about and he won’t be able to get a single link. And…
    It is ok to say things like this if you can link it, but if you are just slinging mud.. stay at home.

  • Joel Wischkaemper

    Mexico doesn’t like the people the Feds are sending out of Detention and out of Prison any more than we do. They want to dump them on us, and in fact, that is what Donald Trump just pointed out.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    Trump pretty much insulted a whole nation. He’s an idiot.

  • Joel Wischkaemper

    Naa. He riled them up, and they see his vision. He can do that vision too. I think he has a lot of money against him.. but he will have the American People with him, and that could work very well for the solutions Mr. Trump is proposing.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    Keep dreaming he doesn’t nor will ever have the people of the U.S. behind him, he’s joke!

    Please
    Donald, watch your back? The Wealthy donors and certain dark entities, don’t
    like to be cut of from their money supply? YOU CANNOT BE BOUGHT, SO THEY HAVE
    TO FIND ANOTHER WAY? They are dumbfounded, as here is a man who tells the truth
    about the Trade Agreement, illegal immigration, our economy, the Middle Eastern
    peril who under Obama’s rule are not terrorists. They cannot bribe Donald, so
    they are using the left wing media and George Soros and the rest of the
    Communists.

    America is ready to hear the truth and
    Donald Trump as just the man to enlighten us. Will Trump win the presidency?
    The jury is still out and both sides of the Political spectrum are out to do
    him harm with their verbal retaliation for informing us of the real truth. Not
    the manipulation of records that doesn’t offer us the real population numbers
    of illegal aliens; misleading us about the growing cost between $60-100 billion
    annually. Not the parasites disguised as the poor illegal aliens, downplayed by
    government and media and not informing the daily dangers of the illegal alien
    invasion; the hit and runs, drunk behind a wheel of a vehicle, the female
    assaults, and the rapists; Little children molested and the murderers and
    dangerous individual that scour our streets for prey. Donald Trump is the sugar
    in the gas tank or a spoiler of the Transamerica Corporation on the other side
    of the abhorrent US border. Millions of American will
    never hear the truth about odious Southwestern border, because the information
    is hidden from the unsuspected public. Trump is a breath of fresh air. He will
    wake the voters up, especially about the terrible consequences of illegal
    immigration. On the website of ‘The Dark
    Side of Illegal Immigration’ http://www.usillegalaliens.com
    the truth prevails; telling the American people the truth not the
    prevailing lies from the Democrats and the Establishment hierarchy of the GOP.

    The ‘status Quo’ is not there for the American
    People. A great many of the politicians are there to add extra weight to campaign
    contributions. Crony Capitalism has an old adage of ‘you scratch my back and
    I’ll scratch yours’. Inside the big house called Congress, there is bribery and
    corruption on a grand scale. That’s why
    both sides of the aisle are running scared and already lying about the poles
    that Mr. Trump is a few points behind Jeb Bush in New Hampshire, the top man in the GOP, but not
    the Tea Party. Even Senator Ted Cruz is not fooled by the old boy’s money club
    in the GOP, which he calls the CARTEL. He is another true American who speaks
    his mind. Another is Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama who also from the beginning spoke
    up about the dangers of the FAST TRACK TRADE TREATIES.

    In the last great trade trickery 700.000 Americans
    lost their jobs with the inception of NAFTA (The North American Trade
    Agreement) and all the promises of abundance for the consumers was a downright
    lie. Everything from Mexico is imported without any tariffs as
    it is from China and other unfriendly countries who
    hate our individualism and freedoms. It’s a shame we have a hopeless, demented
    man for a president who has lost the American Peoples trust, except for the
    Socialist radicals who exist. They have tried to cut out a niche in our
    Republic, by using the ‘Political Correct Policing’ who are more like the KGB
    who were secret police in the Soviet Union controlling the people with their
    spies.

    I am a 26
    year veteran of the Merchant Marine and Mr. Trump has my vote, because he
    echoes the truth relating to Mexican government and their attitude that they
    cam dump their poor into our country and that we should pay for all their
    wants, including healthcare, cheap housing and a cornucopia of benefits, not
    easily accessed by American citizens. Envision TV can cry all they want, but
    you cannot hard the facts about the illegal alien incursion. I for one want my
    taxes going to veteran’s health programs for the permanently maimed and not
    depending on charities our senior citizens and the poverty in America. Let Mexico, Latin America and South America and every other nation care for there
    own people.

    CHAIN
    MIGRATION which is amplifying our population of foreigners through birthright
    citizenship law, bring their offspring her and demanding we give them welfare.

    Except for when an illegal alien does
    something really horrific, such as when illegal aliens killed Denver Police
    Officer Don Young and Los Angeles County Deputy David March,
    or when one dragged his girlfriend to death behind his car, we rarely
    hear about the crime being committed specifically by illegal aliens.

    As detailed
    by Edwin Rubenstein in Criminal
    Alien Nation, criminal illegal aliens are a growing threat. In
    summary, he reports:

    In 1980,
    our Federal and state facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens but at
    the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in U.S. correctional facilities, as follows

    46,000 in Federal prisons

    74,000 in state prisons

    147,000 in local jails.

    The American people must assume that numbers are even
    higher today, but without informing the people 195.000 illegal alien’s
    felons have been released by the Obama Homeland Security back into our
    gullible society.

    The article
    also notes that approximately 27% of all prisoners in Federal custody are
    criminal illegal aliens and the majority (63%) of those is Mexican citizens.
    Donald Trump has it correct, when he says that he will build a great wall
    between Mexico and the United States. The article goes on to state that
    in fiscal 2004, the Federal govt. spent $1.4 billion to incarcerate criminal
    aliens.

    unbiased review of legal, non-profit foundation that blatantly tells you the
    facts about corruption in Federal, state and local government. In many
    instances this administration and Congress ‘believe they are above the law’,
    but Judicial Watch carefully examines the law and will take them to court to be
    held accountable? The American News network, http://www.oann.com.a
    7/24 cable broadcast offers world wide news, and not the prejudiced, misleading
    partisan news that has leanings of either Democrats, liberal or even the
    Establishment Republicans.

    His statements were not racists. He was stating some facts. He was commenting about people coming across our borders illegally and bringing criminal activities with them. His statements were not racists. Talk to any border patrol agent or do some simple googling. He’s not categorizing a race or nation with his statements. He’s factually stating a problem that we have here in the US that needs to be addressed and our power hungry politicians have chosen not to do so.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    A racist wouldn’t think it was a racist comment, most of the people do.

  • karma

    The us is always bashing on other countries when they have one of the most laziest and spoiled set of people. The same illegal immigrants are the reason the same people who do all the hard work you lazy Americans find it hard to do. Alot of you don’t want to do nothing but live off the government and complain while other people who are not from the united states doing 3 and 4 jobs. Countries might have a few bad apples that help to bring the country down in the Crime section but that doesn’t mean he had to bash the whole mexico. He made it clear he didn’t like the people of Mexico and that is clearly racist, evil and sad
    He doesn’t deserve to be a president of nothing but a toilet because he is shyt. Just by looking at his face you can see how evil and face he is. One day you will die leave all that money that makes you think you are betterr than people. You may be winning now but just know the devil won’t allow any other ruler when you get there. The blood of jesus against you donald.

  • Dennis B.

    Jared, that kind of emotional, non-thinking response is part of the problem with America today. Accusing me, someone you don’t know anything about, of being racist because I believe, like most thinking American’s, that our open borders are a problem. Do some research and think about the actual issue instead of emotionally lashing out at someone because it’s easier to do than understanding and discussing the actual issue.
