Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Many politicians have strong feelings about undocumented immigrants coming to the United States. However, Donald Trump took things too far, and now it's backfiring on him.
Mexican language television company Univision announced that it has cut all ties with Donald Trump and his organization after Trump made seemingly racist comments against Mexico and Mexican people.
Donald Trump started his presidential campaign off with a bang by attacking Mexican immigrants.
His comments, which won't be repeated here, angered many and prompted Univision Communications Inc. to end its partnership with Donald Trump and the Miss Universe Organization, which Trump partly owns. Univision has announced that it will not be airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12 in protest of Trump.
For his part, Trump tried to backtrack and say that he "loves Mexico." However, he also claims that Univision has apologized and only cut ties with the Miss Universe Organization because the Mexican government pressured it into it.
Unwilling to truly back down from his position, Trump has threatened to sue Univision for "hundreds of millions of dollars" for breach of contract.
While Univision's approach may be the right thing to do morally and politically, it may be misguided legally. If Univision and Trump did have a contract that required it to air the Miss USA Pageant, refusing to do so could be a breach of contract.
If Trump sues, there are several remedies he could ask for:
Will Donald Trump follow through with his threat to sue? Likely. Will he win? We'll just have to wait and see.
