Sam Seder / Majority Report discusses the presidential campaign of business mogul Donald Trump and his “war” with NBC and Univision.
In other news, Latino rapper Pitbull recently took aim at Trump for his ill-advised remarks on Mexican immigrants in America by declaring the would-be politician had blown his chance of becoming president of the U.S., writes kerngoldenempire.com.
Last month, at his announcement that he would run for President, Trump suggested many Mexicans in the U.S. are “rapists” and “criminals.”
As a result of his controversial remarks, bosses at networks NBC, Univision and Televisa decided to dump coverage of his Miss USA pageant, which aired to low ratings over the weekend.
On Thursday, Spanish-language network Univision held its annual Premios Juventud Awards, and Cuban-American star Pitbull received the first prize of the night for Favorite Urban Artist, writes kerngoldenempire.com.
During his acceptance speech, Pitbull took a moment to call out Trump for his remarks, prefacing his own comments by admitting that he’s stayed at Trump’s hotels and used his helicopters.
He said, “I am not political. I am a musician. But more than anything, I am Latino.”
The Miss USA pageant ended up airing on July 12th on ReelzChannel, which is available on satellite providers DirecTV, Dish Network, and AT&T U-verse channel 799, according to NOLA.com.
