Businessman Donald Trump called Judge Masipa's decision 'ridiculous'


The National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has fired billionaire Donald Trump after his racist remarks on Mexico, Mexicans and Mexican-Americans in his first presidential announcement on June 25.

In a statement on June 29, NBC said: "Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBC Universal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump."

The network says 'Miss USA' and 'Miss Universe' will no longer air on NBC.

As for "The Apprentice," the network notes Trump has already said he won't participate because of his presidential aspiration.

However, the network says, 'Celebrity Apprentice' is a Mark Burnett production and "that relationship will continue." And guess who hosts that show? NBC did not say it would demand a different host.

So, would Trump remain the host of 'Celebrity Apprentice' after being fired by the network?
