Donald Trump Says He Was Not Fired By NBC

Donald Trump is opening up after NBC revealed that the network has cut ties with him. He says he is the one who decided to end their relationship.

The 69-year-old Republican presidential candidate spoke to reporters in a press conference on Monday (June 29) after NBC dropped the bombshell.

“They did not want me to run. They wanted me to do The Apprentice. And now with my statements on immigration which happen to be correct, they are going to take a different stance and that’s OK. Whatever they want to do is OK with me,” Trump said (via THR). “As far as ending the relationship, I have to do that because my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC.”

Make sure to read what NBC said in its statement about pulling the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants from its lineup.

    He is truly pathetic and a total buffoon. He doesn’t get that the country thinks he’s a delusional clown.

    SO FAR I HAVE NOT BEEN BRAINWASHED BY NBC OR THE LIBERAL OR
    CORPORATE RUN MEDIA?

    Every American should bear this in mind, when the time
    comes to vote again–a quote of Margaret Thatcher (The Iron Lady), the British Prime
    Minster of England 1925-2013.

    “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out
    of other peoples’ money”.

    HOW TRUE THAT IS? Wow, how true that quote is especially
    under President Obama’s Liberal Socialist Doctrine, that millions of people and
    this equally applies to unknown numbers of illegal
    aliens, who under this Obama’s Imperial rule has not only allowed illegal aliens to enter this country
    without apprehension, his weak policies have signaled to the world, that if you
    can arrive here—we will process you and take you in. There by adding to
    millions of welfare recipients. Worse still is his complete and ignorant stand
    on ISIL, a very abhorrent gang of butchers that must be eradicated from this
    earth. We are standing on the brink of a modest communist agenda and this to must
    be obliterated. After my loyal service of 26 years in the Merchant Marine, I am
    certainly not rich but have enough to live on in benefits and assets that I
    earned with hard work. So far I haven’t been brainwashed by the radical left. Since
    the election of this President who thinks he is a king and we are his peons, he
    and his court have taken more power from the states and the people, with more
    control over the individual—each citizen and legal resident.

    In 2016, unless we erase this“Give me something for
    nothing” ideology of Obama’s, America will become
    a “Third World Hellhole” as Ann Coulter states on the front of her New York
    Blockbuster book “Adios America”. Only the
    American voters can decide which direction we should go? Never did I dream of
    this shameful administration I voted into power. I myself marked an X so to
    speak for Obama. Myself, I am voting this time for entrepreneur and businessman
    Donald Trump, unless of course he
    starts to fade. Then next in line Senator Ted Cruz or a lady with the right
    stuff Carly
    Fiorina. Then of course anybody who fits into the grading system of NumbersUSA
    and they should click on http://www.numbersusa.Com/
    Scott Walker has a first class grading measurement of B-. On my part there will
    be no vote for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders or Jeb Bush all need to be mothballed.
    No more Career Politicians, who are tied to the same brush on Immigration; a
    path to citizenship. Thousands of people wait in line for years from all over
    the world, but this administration has more loyalty to illegal aliens, then
    this nation’s people or legal immigrants.

    AVERAGE AMERICAN VOTERS ARE TOO
    AFRAID AND COWER IN DARK CORNERS OWING TO ‘POLITICAL CORRECT POLICE’.

    YES! AND I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BY AN
    ILLEGAL ALIEN AND A LEGAL IMMIGRANT, BUT THE MORONS TRY TO MERGE THE TWO NAMES
    TOGETHER? ONLY SOMEBODY WITH AN EMPTY CRANIUM WOULD CONFUSE WHAT THE
    TERMINOLOGY MEANS? ILLEGAL—IS—ILLEGAL!

    Our federal
    government wishes to be personally involved in every aspect of our lives. They
    think they know what’s best when it comes to health-care, insurance, and our
    earnings. The government has no problem with incarcerating thousands of
    Americans for petty crimes, but the illegal aliens cannot be held but for six
    months. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is regularly releasing dangerous
    criminals. Now we have found out just how dangerous this move was. The Washington time reported USICE put felons illegally
    back to litter our streets, instead of deporting them. These are brutal
    criminals that Homeland Security knew they would commit more crimes once the
    government gave them amnesty (the failure to deport 195.00 illegal aliens or
    detain them IS amnesty?). Now at least
    121 law abiding people, folks that thought the government was protecting them,
    are now dead.

    Me, I am
    going to take my chances with a Donald Trump the Billionaire, who as President
    cannot be intimidated, or given hush money. The Crony Capitalism of buying
    votes in Congress has no effect on Trump? My family’s personal opinion and many
    of my friends doesn’t care if he has a giant ego; whether he is arrogant or
    bloody minded as long he puts America back on track. As for the UniVision
    debacle and NBC, I don’t watch either media, so a majority of Americans don’t
    care. They are irrelevant to me. He speaks directly to the working man and
    doesn’t hold back. Sealing the US/ Mexican that border is one of his
    major issues, that he has stipulated will be on his desk the first days of his
    administration. He demands that the Mexican government will recompense us.

    If Mexican
    authorities don’t agree to pay, then American taxpayers will have to shell out
    for the construction of a border wall? In the long run, it would pay for itself
    as hundreds of billions of dollars would be saved when illegal aliens would be
    arrested, including ‘Overstays’ and sent home. Under Obama and the Socialist
    more spending, more taxes to bleed incessantly from taxpayers, to pay welfare
    to illegal aliens and the growing volume of food stamps to parasitic Americans
    who cringe at the word work. Trump will renegotiate all significantly bad Trade
    Agreements, including NAFTA. It swallows
    our money, for goods made across the border. If corporate taxes were lowered
    from 39 percent, transnational entities would prefer to came back and bring
    trillions of dollars to our banks.

    If you are searching for the unrestrained truth and not the
    rhetoric or propaganda from the GOP establishment or the Democrats, then click
    on http://www.judicialwatch.org/ this is
    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 career
    Republicans.

    INCIDENTALLY,
    FROM MY HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE SUPREME COURT WAS TO DECIDE
    LAW AND NOT WRITE LAW AS THE EDICTS OF THE US CONSTITUTION SUPPLIES? WRITING LAWS WAS UP TO THE US CONGRESS AND NOT A BLACK ROBED JUDGES
    WHO ARE USING THEIR OWN AGENDA, TO MAKE LAW?
