NBC to Trump: You're Fired

NBC announced it will not continue its business relationship with Donald Trump after his comments about Mexican immigrants. "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values," the media company said in a statement Monday. The GOP presidential candidate recently described Mexican immigrants as "bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people." The network will not air Miss USA and the Miss Universe Pageants anymore. More than 200,000 signed a petition asking NBC to cut its ties with Trump. In response, Trump told reporters that he had to end the relationship because "my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC," adding that "my stance is correct." In a later statement he complained that NBC "will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is."
