The business mogul has a reputation for making outlandish incendiary statements about immigrants and US immigration policy. In the statement posted on the network's website, NBC reiterated its commitment to "respect and dignity for all people" and cited "derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants" as the primary reason for the termination of their business relationship.
“Trump has been hosting “The Apprentice” since 2004. NBC introduced the concept of a celebrity edition in 2008, and it is the current iteration of the show. The Celebrity Apprentice aired Season 7 (or the series’ Season 14) in January,” they said.
The derogatory racist remarks about Mexican immigrants came under scrutiny when he declared, “[Mexico is] sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists.”
Latino artists associated with Miss USA withdrew from the event and the Spanish-language network Univision decided to not air the pageant over Trump’s remarks. A grassroots campaign began on Change.org urging NBC to cut ties with the “Celebrity Apprentice” host and “Dump Trump.”
Trump’s insensitivity to Mexicans casts a shadow also over his ability to govern all Americans—including all races--if he became president. First, however, he would have to receive the nomination and trust of the Republican Party, but after his disastrous announcement speech, he has little to no chance of ever getting the nomination. He is not the first presidential hopeful to be struck down by ill chosen words, and he probably won’t be the last.
