Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has opened up a new media feud, taking on another popular TV news personality even as his appearances continue to draw big ratings.
Donald Trump’s lawyers say Trump and the Miss Universe pageant have sued Univision for $500 million in a New York court, claiming Trump’s First Amendment rights were violated when the company declined to air the Miss USA contest.
The president of programming and content at Univision, Alberto Ciurana, responded to Donald Trump’s comments about building a wall and having Mexico “pay for it” by comparing the real estate billionaire’s image to that of accused Charleston, South Carolina, shooter Dylann Roof.
Talk show host Rodner Figueroa was fired from Univision after saying that Michelle Obama looks like someone from the cast of “Planet of the Apes.”
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on Wednesday ridiculed rival Mitt Romney’s call for self-deportation of illegal immigrants as an “Obama-level fantasy” that would be inhumane to long-established families living in America.
