Donald Trump is laughing at the assumption that NBC fired him over his comments about Mexico, saying that he decided to dump the network because it was ‘weak’ and striving to be ‘politically correct.’
The presidential candidate was at a press conference in Chicago when NBC released their statement firing Trump … and as ENTmania! previously noted, the news will not come as a surprise to Trump. Turns out that we were more than correct, as Trump is now saying that he was actually the one who fired the network.
‘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 okay,’ he told reporters in Chicago. ‘Whatever they want to do is okay with me. As far as ending the relationship, I have to do that because my view on immigration is much different than the people at NBC.’
Then in a statement released on Instagram, The Trump Organization said:
As of today, Donald J. Trump is no longer affiliated with NBC. Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate. NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct — that is why our country is in serious trouble.
Mr. Trump says, ‘We must have strong borders and not let illegal immigrants enter the United States. As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated. Public reports routinely state great amounts of crime are being committed by illegal immigrants. This must be stopped and it must be stopped now. Long ago I told NBC that I would not being doing ‘The Apprentice’ because I am running for President in order to make our country great again.
If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court. Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.’
