"You're fired," are words that Donald Trump usually says to contestants on his NBC show "The Apprentice," but this morning Univision was the one to use that phrase against him. The Spanish-language network cut ties with the Miss Universe Organization and opted out of airing the Miss USA 2015 pageant and any events associated the Trump organization. "Mexican [government] doesn't want me talking about terrible border situation and horrible trade deals. Forcing Univision to get me to stop- no way!" the presidential hopeful ranted on Twitter. "Univision wants to back out of signed Miss Universe contract because I exposed the terrible trade deals that the U.S. makes with Mexico. I love Mexico but not the unfair trade deals that the US so stupidly makes with them. Really bad for US jobs, only good for Mexico." See tweets down below and tell us what you think!

Early this morning Univision released a statement taking a stand against Mr. Trump's horrendous comments against Mexican immigrants: "Today the entertainment division of Univision Communications Inc. announced that it is ending the Company’s business relationship with the Miss Universe Organization, which is part-owned by Donald J. Trump, based on his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants. At Univision we see first-hand the work ethic, love for family, strong religious values and the important role Mexican immigrants and Mexican-Americans have had and will continue to have in building the future of our country. We will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12th or working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization. Univision News and the local news division will continue to provide comprehensive coverage of all candidates, including Mr. Trump, to ensure our audience continues to have access to all points of view."

During Trump's announcement, that he would be running for President, he made unfortunate remarks that have been deemed racist. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best. They're not sending you, they're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems," he said. "[Mexican immigrants] are bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they're telling us what we're getting. I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.”
