Donald Trump loves to tell it like it is. (Or like he thinks it is.) He also loves money. Now Trump’s two great loves have come into direct conflict: his own insulting, incendiary words are going to hurt his bank account. Univision, the giant Spanish-language network, won’t air Trump-owned beauty pageants like the Miss Universe pageant, which was scheduled to air July 12. In fact, Univision won’t be “working on any other projects tied to the Trump Organization.”
Bad news for Donald, who is widely believed to have thrown his hat in the presidential ring in order to increase his wealth (through increased visibility). Now with his very first speech as a candidate, he hurt his own bottom line. What did he say that so pissed off Univision? How about this: “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. …They are sending people that have lots of problems. They are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs and they are bringing crime and their rapists.” Now Trump’s bikini-clad young women will parade around in high heels in English only.
